It has come to my attention that what happened to me back in 2005 has happened to far too many people now across the country.

I don't want to appear to be telling stories but I feel very strongly that the tactics he has been using should now be made public and should stop!!!

The link below is a thread on the A8 parts forum which I strongly recommend people read.

If the moderators wish to lock this thread from replies feel free, but please allow the thread to remain as a factual warning against the services of this individual.

I'd say let this run. It's like quattro nics all over again

You will never see a workshop or garage recommendation on this forum and this is why.

i've heard a few of those stories about him before. It certainly makes for interesting reading.
These things always have a way of coming back to bite them on the ass in the end.
One can only rip people off for so long before they get found out! Rolling Eyes

well said, and thanks. Cool

You get good and bad "publicity" on the 'net these days (we probably have some!)- BUT there have been numerous "companies" and "individuals" over the years... some public, some not. (As in this case not public until it got REALLY bad) (most forums -unfortunately have a bias towards "negative")

Does anyone have a photo? (Just so others know)

I'm not after the equivalent of a "public flogging"- but my thoughts are "forewarned= forearmed"
