    been getting things done bit by bit since getting the tqs, onto my final fault on the car, a snapped rear coil spring, obviously wanting it right id want a pair, phoned up a automotive outlet to get me a price on 2 coil springs after about a 30 min wait on the phone, he come back with £300 for the pair, is this right for two springs or is he fobbing me off as he cant find the correct part, thats stupid money for a spring

    Sounds like the incompetence of Euro Car Parts to me!
    I would expect somewhere around the £80 mark for the pair.

    phoned audi main dealer, just on the off chance and asked for a price, was a bit puzzled that he come back with £51 each including my 10% discount, came today £118 all in well chuffed for the pair,so where the hell did they come back with a figure of £300???? just goes to show

    I just had my S4 ones done. 80 quid for the pair plus 2 hours fitting.

    However, when they took them off, they found that the "carrier things" had rusted to bits. I saw them and they were in a right state.

    I think they were about 80 quid too. They are the bits pressed up against the inner wing that the springs and stuff attach too.

    Sorry for the lack of detail!
