    Is there a way to search for an A4 on all franchised dealerships?

    Thanks, but they have nothing i want, or they are too expensive. I have just found Parkers car guide, they do a franchised dealer search.

    Is there a way to search for an A4 on all franchised dealerships?

    I look on the Audi site most days, and i have started looking on JCT600. Is there any way of checking all franchised dealerships, ie widen the search. I'm fairly specific what i'm after.

    170 TDI fuel economy/ mpg

    My previous A3 60k, did 55mpg at best. My present one 30k, both 140's does 50mpg at best. I'm looking at a 140ps A4. Is 40mpg acheivable.

    Looking to buy a B7 or B8 TDI, any comments, good options etc.

    Are the auto gearboxes in the B7 any good, or do you go for the B8 (bearing in mind its a newer model)

    Normally i ring round, go to the cheapest place (or get them to price match) and get them fitted. Looking on the web there are some places that sell tyres at a good discount. Per tyre....... Kwick Fit Pirelli p Zero 225/45/17 £148 all in. Lovetyres.com £89 delivered. Obviously fitting is extra...

    A3 five years old due for service. What should be done by now?

    According to the service book, oil, filter and pollen filter (as not changed for 2 yrs). I was wondering if there was anything not in the book, but ""recommended"", like when i changed the cam belt, i did the water pump as well. Not in the book, but the consensus is its a good idea.

    £336 Cam belt and water pump change @ Grimsby Audi.

    If you dont ask, you dont get. I reckon now is a good time to get jobs done as most people will have one eye on xmas and leave any big jobs until the new year. Mechanics sat idle=good opportunity to negotiate.
