Hi Guys Im just a newby to the forum but thought you would like to know of a great Audi independent in Essex called MotorAid. Theyve got 2 branches, one in Basildon and one in Hainault near Romford. I visited the Basildon branch recently for some servicing a repairs, and they were a real bunch of genuine & very knowledgeable people. You may want to give them a go, their number is 01268-591558.

Hi, all. I am new to the forum and am seeking a recommended garage in south essex so thank you to your posts above. I shall give them a go in the coming months when my A6 requires its interval service and report back.

In 2010, I had a well travelled (170k) but tidy A4 1.9tdi and took it to an obvious choice garage in the essex/london area for a fixed fee 300 'comprehensive' service. They offered a courteous service picking up and returning my car and advising of a somewhat 'comprehensive list of snagging items including tired boot gas struts??? amounting to almost 2,000 of additional work. I declined and received my car back later that same day. Anyway I didnt inspect/use the car for a couple of days and after driving it locally, thought I'd belatedly check the oil level. For a diesel with 506.01 spec oil, 50 miles of driving appeared to leave this premium oil incredibly black and water-like. I was disappointed and irritated with myself more than the garage concerned for not following this up but then hey, you learn from your mistakes!
