Back in a "B"
Used to be in redcar/middlesbrough... now Coventry though if im up seeing family when theres a meet on
Hi lads, sorry to drop in the thread like this. Im just wondering if any body has any advice on servicing. I have a 53 Plate A3 and upto now the car has full service history from Dealership, but I feel that for the age of the car, and the fact that all "major" parts have already been replaced (timing belt etc) I would rather use a good independent garage. Im from Hartlepool so garages fairly close would be preferable. Thankss lads.
Welcome fella, your A3 doesnt have a blacked out grill does it? Seen one kicking round town a couple of times..
Ron Tunbulls in Middlesbrough have the best rep for a non-dealer garage for VAG cars - booking mine in there for the cambelt in a few weeks.
im up for a meet guys espesh when the weather is good, why dont we sort somet with jen and have a meet at her unit and check out some products ?
murcdochA3 - Im a fully qualified mechanic and can do all your car service needs and use all genuune parts at discounted prices pm me for details on what you need, this goes to everyone els
Hi buddy, thanks for the offer. I'm just about to book the car in if i can get hold of Ron Turnbull's. I've heard some pretty good reviews etc. Much appreciated, nice to know that there's somebody on my doorstep if i ever need anything though.
.......A quick question, in my advisory note from the service he explained that my fog lights were not operational. I knew this because I have done the single grille upgrade and never bothered to wire them in. Would this be an MOT fail? As im unsure.
......Yes i think it would be a fail as IIRC any lamp fitted to the car must work... Inc fogs.
|I'm thinking of meeting at halfords carpark in bishop Auckland at around 9/10:00am this sunday 12th auguest (I can get a postcode if you need it) then heading towards killhope mine and over hartside pass stopping at hartside cafe for some scran and a opportunity for some awesome photos. After this drive down the other side of the pass which will bring us into Penrith. This is a good chance to refuel or w.e Now from here we can either go into the lakes (Windermere,keswick, Ambleside, etc) or we can head east on the A66 and call at Tan Hill Inn (the highest pub in England) have a cheecky pint there and drive down the awesome road down the other side towards Barnard castle. Then we can end the day either at scotch corner services or back to bishop. |
What yaz think lads?
