    Right, got a bunch of stuff needing doing and I've been let down so many times by various garages I'm really quite picky now.

    I need somewhere with experience of the S3 8P, needing clutch done at some point and other bits.

    Can anyone make and good recommendations?

    Cheers!

    Called Autohaus this afternoon, they quoted me 10 hours and £580 for fitting a clutch, and another £60 to fit my downpipe at the same time (surely with the subframe and box out it's a 30 min job max?).

    Audi Technik Centre in Bishopbriggs and Strathclyde Gearbox Services have quoted me £360 with the VAT for the clutch which is much better plus they're both closer too.

    Waiting for Kenneth Brown coming back to me.


    Manor13 - Ecotune won't fit parts they don't supply when I asked.
