I Agree Cass. I used to use an independent specialist on my Porsche and providing they use the approved spares you could save a few quid.Cass said:Might be good to have a section for independent garages who are Treg competent. More and more owners now as the Treg gets a bit older and the prices of early models drop nearer to the 10 - 12k mark.
THe downside of using an independent during the VW 3 year warranty period is you will probably not get any goodwill gestures from VW GB should you have a problem just outside the warranty term. Saving a hundred quid or so won't seem such as good idea then IF you should run into such a problem.Faz said:Has anyone had any experience of these? Specialist Servicing for BMW AUDI VW and MECS (NOT KWIK FIT etc). They say tat the warranty is not affected etc and they have all the diagnostic equipment and they are way cheaper.
Yes...........you will probably get better servicebogey said:My car is over 6 years old. I don't think I will go to main dealers which charge me ?580 (VW Chiswick) or ?760 (VW Twickenham). Following this thread, I have contacted a specialist in Harrow (A40) for the same service for just ?230 (including VW parts, labour and VAT). Do you think the service quality will differ that as the prices change?
Can anybody recommend an Indy in Kent? Totally agree with Porsche servicing, I have owned a few over the years and I would say the independents are better. It costs a lot for main dealers to keep those shiny showrooms and they pass that on to us. Of course it is advisable to use main dealers for the first 3 years.Following this thread, I have been looking out for a good VW Specialst and found one in South Harrow. Address here: It is recommended.
