    "MMI (MIB2) Update"
    Pros - Trust, Knowledge, Approchable, Helpful, Value for money, Goes the extra Mile, Explains every step, You get more than you bargained for!
    Cons - I doubt you will ever find a con!
    MMi MIBII Update.

    Vehicle:2015, Audi A6, 3.0, Quattro, Black Edition, 272

    I bought my first Audi in October 2019, ever since I have been looking through the Audi forums to see what tweaks are possible. The main block I found was adding Apple Car Play.


    There were so many different posts saying it just needs activated, you need additional hardware, you need to install an additional mic, it all depends on what mmi system you have, the year of the car, the firmware version, the list goes on and on.


    With the current lock down, I have had some time to search and find the right answers, or so I thought!


    While looking through the posts the common reviews were for Vag Car Coding.


    I called the number and spoke to Alex. Within 5 minutes Alex had answered all the question I had been searching and more! He explained I had a MIBII unit which would support Apple Car Play! Then Alex noticed the accent difference. On guessing I wasn't close by (I live in Scotland) after a discussion of how we could proceed during the non-essential travel ban he offered me to send the unit to him, he could do everything I wanted and return the unit.


    Now my issue would normally have been trust as I have never met Alex or even seen his premises. After chatting on the phone, I had full confidence everything would be fine!


    I sent the unit to off by Royal Mail, it was delivered the next morning, I then started receiving WhatsApp pictures of the progress and everything completed. The unit was then posted back the same day!


    The unit is back in the car, with everything working better than it ever did!


    I can now personally recommend Alex to the whole of the Audi community with confidence that they will receive more than the best service possible at the best value for money!

    "Coding for Interior/Ambient lighting"
    Pros - Absolutely Fantastic - determined to find a solution!
    Cons - None
    I had previously contacted Alex to have the Audi Sound System coded in on my S3 and was absolutely delighted with the service he provided. However, not content to stop there, I decided to install door and footwell lighting. Once again, Alex came to the rescue and was able to assist me with the coding. Living in Cardiff I thought I was going to have to make a trip to London to get this sorted. However, as I have VCDS, Alex was able to log in to my PC and program the car remotely. Needless to say I was delighted not to have to make the drive to London.

    This is the second time Alex has assisted me with coding for my car. I cannot recommend him enough. What I thought would be a 10-15 minute job took a couple of hours. Alex was determined to sort it out and get it working. No prizes for guessing that he succeeded.

    Very, very helpful and knowledgeable. A big 'thank you' from me. Thoroughly recommended

    "Mag Ride Recalibration"
    Pros - It’s just brilliant
    Cons - None
    So my car was lowered on Eibach Sportline lowering springs which has made a huge difference in the way the car handles and looks. It now looks like it should have done from the factory. So I called Alex to get the mag ride recalibrated which was carried out on Wednesday evening this week. Alex had said to me that a 2mm difference in ride height can really confuse the mag ride calibration. So mag ride recalibration was carried out and what a difference. This is night and day. So if your thinking about lowering your car with mag ride suspension then please get Alex in to do his magic you won’t be disappointed.
    I can’t recommend him highly enough :icon thumright::icon thumright:

    "RS3 reversing camera, hill hold and dash cams"
    Pros - Great attention to detail, trustworthy
    Cons - None yet
    I contacted Alex about some work on my RS3 and he provided me a very thorough phone and email quotation and dissuaded me from a couple of things which shows he knows his stuff - he won’t just fit pointless things or garbage.
    Anyway, he came to me and I left the car with him all day - you know when you just have a feeling that someone is a good guy - based upon his reviews and his approach, punctual, thorough, I wasn’t bothered at all.
    Alex completed the work and the value of what I got I think was very fair indeed.
    Don’t hesitate to use him.

    Thanks

    "Fantastic Company!"
    Pros - Knowledge you will not find anywhere else, VAG don’t know their tools as well as Alex does.
    Cons - Absolutely none.
    Great guy.. best knowledge in the business with all the tools. I think you’d struggle to find a main dealer that knows how to use their own tools as well as Alex does and what’s best, it’s all approved and warranty friendly with him being authorised.

    Helped me out with Magnetic Ride recalibration, supply and fit of a start stop memory module and solemn other minor coding.

    Will forever recommend and return.

    "Absolutely Spot On"
    Pros - - Explains what he is doing, without being patronising
    - Cost Competitive
    Cons - - None!
    Went down to see Alex in order to get a dual channel dashcam fitted to my new S5, with the amount of driving I do and the peace of mind a dashcam provides it was a no brainer. Really wanted it hardwired for the parking mode to know if something happened I'd have some evidence!
    Alex got it all done in just over an hour and took the time to explain how the various features worked, which saved me battling a manual!

    He then went through his various unlocks available for my S5 and unlocked what he could!

    Was very helpful and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone!

    "More bass in minutes!"
    Pros - Quick, easy and a pleasure to do business with!
    Cons - None
    With all modern cars, it seems to make mods is getting harder, not to physically install, but get the mod 'switched on'. As I experienced recently when I added a subwoofer and centre speaker to my A3 8V and found the 'simple coding' change was not so simple!

    Enter Alex!

    A few minutes later and bang and even better BOOM!

    Great service and a nice guy to make the coding mods - would recommend to anyone needing the service.

    "Top man"
    Pros - Top job
    Cons - none
    Alex really knows his stuff, ADS button fitted and ADS recoded, the button fitting was a first for Alex, but as usual he'd done his research and all up and running in no time.

    I've never been disappointed with any of the mods Alex has done on any of my cars, he really is a Top Guy, and a gentleman. :icon thumright:

    Highly recommend.

    "Cracking Service"
    Pros - Super Quick, very easy, coded a couple of things i asked for at the last minute and threw a few in for free!
    Cons - Absolutely nothing
    Met Alex on his trip up to Scotland to do some work and got him to code in the Audi Sound System upgrade so i could fit my own subwoofer, met him at the hotel the night he arrived and he was out, coded, and done in under 15 minutes. Gave me a full explanation of what he was doing, what it would do to the car, and then a full recap before he left of everything he'd done. Very knowledgeable, already got some work lined up for him on my other halfs car next time he's in Scotland!
