I had a problem bleeding my brakes once before.
I just found the reciepts from havin it done
bear in mind I started with my local garage who basicly couldnt do it.

I took it to JBS
with a receipt for £100+
then to a place in Nottingham £315
then it had to go back there and charged another £50

and I am pretty sure the brakes still arent spot on like they were when I bought it. :(

I got a quote for a full 6 brake line (Goodridge reinforced) replacement with fitting and fluid change for £275 all in the other day i am tempted

The a3/s3/tt brake system is renouned for getting air in it whilst bleeding, the 8p chassis isn't any better. When i get a spare 5mins im going to have to sort my crappy brakes, some s3's i drive are spot on but quite a few are terrible. And why buy the kit for 50 quid and do it yourself when its 49 for audi to do it, or worse pay JBS 100?

Yer they are so ****, I can push it the whole way down quite easily. Well the fluid and bleeder kit came to £50.

That isnt right!

Is the fluid level dropping?, seems like there's a leak to me if its not air in the system.

Theres no leak I dont think, I just think theres still air in the system. Its been like it since i got it. I may be exagarating (SP)? when i say its really easy to put the pedal to the floor, but i can put it too the floor when i slams my brakes on. Im not going to worry about it now though,

People will say im crazy but im thinking of swapping my car in for a fwd a3 or golf annivesary. wants the AUQ engined a3 though with the k03s in it.
