    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.

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

    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.

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

    No mods, bog standard. Normally i use Louth VW who are excellent and have a great reputation. However, my Audi is under warranty and the window switch needs fixing, hence Cleethorpes Audi can do both jobs. I dont really rate Cleethorpes Audi, but for warranty work i have to go there. Anyway...

    The part number i got was from Audi yesterday. They put my reg in the computer and came out with a set of options. As for some that prefer the ones i have, i can understand that, its just my preference.

    £1600 for a set of genuine Audi alloys..............Ouch......(pictures)

    They are not very common, but they are the ones i like. I have thought about going the route you suggest, which i did with my old A3. It was just so much hassle, misadvertised, dodgy ebay sellers,etc,etc. Any other alternatives except ebay or new from dealer. I'd like the genuine Audi ones above.
