    Hi all.

    Car needs a Cambelt + Waterpump change and Stafford Audi have offered me a very good deal after contacting them on eBay through there cambelt change listing (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....pagename=ADME:X:eRTM:GB:1123&salenotsupported).

    I just wanted to ask whether anyone has had any previous experience with them in regards to the quality of there work. It's not case of guilty until proven innocent, just genuinely curious if anyone has used any of there services because prices seem very reasonable.

    Same here, my A3 has a full history with them, The receptionist is a good looker and the coffee is decent!

    Also i scuffed a wheel on the courtesy A4 they gave me and when i told them, they didnt give a toss! Thumbs up for me!

    Fantastic. Thanks all!

    Once i've got the time, i'll book it in for the cambelt + waterpump and probably a service too.

    Many thanks again =)

    Dear oh dear. Just made a huge mistake... I got the location wrong and thought it was only a 30min drive. Turns out to be 3hours+.

    Guess i'll have to find somewhere else. Damn shame =/

    Well, 3hours+ for a good service... will seriously think about that one. Shame there's nowhere decent in Croydon/Surrey.

    And will defo see if I can push on the discount. I'll mention the distance too, see if that'll work heh

    Worth a go, ask them for the cost of your fuel, Most people are prepared to have a day off work if for a car service anyhow so make a day of it and have a drive up the M6!;)

    Glad I've read this - it's put my mind at ease as my car's going in there in a couple of weeks for a service and a few warranty jobs.

    2 Hour drive easily, hows about trying to get a local Audi Dealership to price match?

    Also how much were they asking for if you dont mind me asking?
