    My car is due to go back to Audi Finance in April and it's on a PCP.

    It's due a service and MOT just before returning. Been reading my agreement and it states I must take reasonable care of the vehicle but can't see any requirement to use a franchised dealer.

    So, if I use an Audi specialist with Audi genuine parts, am I likely to be stung with handing the 4yo car back?

    Thanks.

    I'm moving to a lease deal and the paperwork on that states I must use a franchised dealer.

    Guess I'll obtain a price from the local specialist. Around £375 for a service + £50 MOT + £24 collection fee for a car I'm about to hand back is rather excessive I feel.

    Had one for the first two, vehicle is being returned in March so no point for this service.

    Local specialist just quoted over £120 less than Newcastle Audi.
