Do you know of a good Independent Garage who can service Tregs?

Post 'em on this thread

If you can possibly provide the following:

Name
Location
Hourly rate
Work completed
Cost of parts
Whether they use genuine VW Parts (for the extended Warranty peeps out there)

Should give us all a few other options than the main dealers when the shine has faded off your pride and joy, and you and your wallet have come back to earth :D
Telemetrically Superb

Sold - Wonderful 08 plate 2.5 Altitude in Atacama Grey. Now in a Golf 1.4 TSI with DSG, remapped from 122 to 160. Shit off a shovel :-)

I can recommend Mastertechs in Morden, I have used them for 5 years with my Audi S6 Avant (Now on Autotrader looking for a new home as my new baby is here) and they are all Ex Audi / VW guys. They have been brilliant. I have now bought a V10 and shall certainly be taking it to them. I have rung them and even though I don't think they have seen many V10s I trust them and they are very reasonable. I shall certainly report more when they have carried out work on the vehicle which won't be in too distance future!!

Here are their details:

I think they are 60 or 65 per hour. They only use genuine parts and do not do work just for the sake of it.

VASS Specialist nr Coventry. Took my Treg for a service there shortly after buying it and was immediately impressed with their honesty and knowledge. You get a full Vagcom printout with every service and mini valet too. Run by a couple of ex Audi techs who know their stuff, they are experienced on Tregs & fully trained and experienced on Q7's

Service prices are roughly £150 for interim and £250 for full service on the Treg, don't know their hourly rate though.
They also changed my Vagcom settings to allow my iPhone to work with the VW phone system, free of charge which was a nice gesture.

Check them out on the Good Garage Scheme website, they have an excellent rep.

I wouldn't go anywhere near SWIFT in Newcastle, he said he could repair my propshaft bearing,
he had it for months and it wouldn't start in the end,he locked himself out of it and broke the
back light to get in, then he said he couldn't repair it cos it was crimped and difficult, so he
sent the shaft to the Guy that I originally told him about in Crewe who advertises the bearing on
Ebay,all to my cost, bad tempered and disgusting service.^ months ago I had an oil change only
to find out that he hadn't replaced the shield under the engine, now I don't have one !!!! he's
an idiot

He had the car for months? Surely you asked for it back if he said he couldn't fix it?

He never rang you to ask you for a spare key, and instead decided to smash something and then refuse to fix it?

Was this months ago that you got the oil change that you talk about before, or after, him providing the disgusting service?

I will very much stand corrected if I am wrong, but your posts smacks of a garage googling competitors names and slating them on websites with false information. I only say this because I have had it done to me, and ended up in court, and I won!

Oak Wood Prestige Cars
Unit 18
Paxcroft Farm Estate
Hilperton
Trowbridge
BA14 6JB

So far they have replaced my Tandem Pump back in April without removing the engine. Unit price £457.22. Labour 13.5 hours @ £50.00 Total £1,132.22 + VAT
They did say that they never wanted to see another tandem pump job though, their arms were fairly well scratched up from reaching down the back of the engine.

Yesterday they replaced my propshaft bearing. Unit price £59.45. Labour 2 hours @ £49.50 Total £158.45 + VAT

Bearing in mind that both jobs were done under warranty, the first using the £2,000 limited warranty with Customer Protect who they use on their second hand car sales and were therefore able to deal with without me having to pay anything up front.

The second was done under my Warranty direct policy which meant I had to pay up front and claim the money back.

They are Audi and VW specialists and use genuine parts. If these are the prices they give for warranty work then I can't recommend them enough.:D

Universal VW Audi
Stable Way London,
Greater London W10 6QX
020 8968 5319

I took my A6 All road there for years before buying the Treg. They only used genuine VW parts and the labour cost is 1/2 the dealer cost but what's most important is they tell you the truth and you can have a conversation about your car rather than having to navigate through different levels of ignorance from the front desk until you get to speak to your "customer service interface user representative operative" :angry:

These guys have lots of loyal West London customers who could I am sure easily afford to go to a dealer and not even notice they were getting ripped off - but the service is A1.

The owner is sound and has a V10 so he knows what he's on about. They will always repairs something rather than replace it if they can. I remember once they saved me £000's by mending a broken wire on a headlamp fitting rather than replace the whole unit.
