    Hi there, been quoted the following from my local Indy for some repairs:

    Radiator fan staying on for ages and engine running quite hot- not over 90 on temp but getting out of the car you are treated to a hot blast of air under the wheel arches. Diagnosed a coolant leak, replacing "radiator" £300 inc parts and labour

    Rear wiper motor needing replacing £150 inc parts and labour

    Drivers front suspension rattling over bumps- diagnosed an oil leak in suspension so replacing strut- £150 parts and labour.

    All on a 3.2 a3 manual box....Is that reasonable?

    Thanks for any input

    Fans staying on is usually the fan control unit failing so new fan assembly required. Common fault and around £300.

    Rear wiper motor is around £95 from Audi and takes 10mins to fit so £150 is a rip off for that!

    Thanks for that. How much am I looking for a new catalytic converter? Been told I need a new one of those too as the exhaust is rattling at certain revs....
