Bad news on that geezer. I use a place called Murray's in Hatfield. They have a shop and are VAG specialists. They also sell on eBay. I cannot praise these bods enough. They are great.

Best to fit them yourself and also find a local VAG specialist for servicing etc.

You really don't want tw4t boy at the wheel of your car again.

lol he was about 50yrs old! thats what makes it even worse, well i went on dads advice (wont be doing so again) he said take it to a MD will look good when u sell it so it will have all audi stamps in the book, i have a mate whos a mechanic who works for ford who did the work on my prev car, ive been all klasse autos ones in stortford who were ok but not brilliant, dad said audi will look better, even tho AK is a german specialist, oh no i dont believe me cruiser! head office is gonna be getting a call from me soon, only had the car a week and spent £430 in there and they did that, basically drove it like they stole it and ruined my pads :( oh and took 7 hours to do! they said they road test it to takeley and back, then drove it to my work in stortford so max of 10miles funny that cos range said it had been 50miles... avg mpg was 17!
