hi there,

I got a complete 40k service done by AVIT in Slough yesterday. I was very happy with the service and they look to have done a good job. Got Oil - Oil Filter - Air - Pollen and Fuel done. Currently have about 38,800 on the car.

I also got the Cambelt and tensioners changed, and while I was at it got a new water pump fitted too!! I am running her on BP Ultimate Diesel at the mo and she is going very well now. Oh I got the brake fluid changed too.

I would certainly recommend AVIT, they are a specialist Audi and VW garage. Call Sunny on 01753 532 900 and he will sort you out! Tell him Niall with Diesel Anni recommend you!

I got a flyer from these guys and was thinking about using them for my 60k service. How did they compare to VW cost wise?
Well I supplied my own fluids for the general service, oil, oil filter, pollen and air. This came to about ?70 in Halfords. I then did a 'deal' for the service.

The parts for the cambelt, tensioner and water pump were invoiced and I then sorted out the labour. The brake fluid had to be invoiced also.

Best to give Sunny a call and do a deal.

Just wondering, do they provide courtesy cars?

Because I'm looking to get my rear bushes done, but I'm more towards the Northolt/Hayes area which is quite far away - so once I get there, I won't be able to get back home.

No I dont think they have one available. However, it is only a 10 min walk to Slough station. Sunny can also arrange for a Taxi to pick you up if you wish.

I dropped the car and got the train and picked it up the following evening. They normally close at 6pm but I was late (trainss cancelled!!) and Sunny waited until 6:25pm for me to arrive.

just had my 60k service done from these guys, with cambelt, tensioners and water pump changed. guys seem to have done a very good job, no complaints. quick and straight forward service. this was last week, and sunny did say that they were moving or extending their garage over the weekend. it may have run over schedule a bit, hence the answering machine being on, but i dont think theyv shut down for good. incidently, it was about ?150 for the 60k sevice and ?290 for the cambelt etc.

I've booked my 130pd for a 40k service with AVIT which includes a new cambelt and water pump only for ?221

What else normally gets changed at the 40k service. Does it include fluids? Should I provide my own to ensure the quality of the fluids?

btw AVIT does MOT also!

Some feedback on my questions would be appreciated.

I've been tempted to give them a try as I've got a 100k service coming up. however they're not exactly cheap. They quoted me about ?4-500 to fit my koni sport kit and brakes but I ended up getting it all done locally for only ?200, and it was an excellent job.

I'm looking at getting my service done now and Citygate in NW London are quoting about ?200 for a basic service and fluid replacement etc. I'll try calling a few other places too if anyone has other recommendations in and around this area.thanks!
