    Find a local independent Audi specialist. Google or post on Piston Heads (www.pistonheads.com) to find one.

    Sell the Audi, they aren't as reliable as people think and the servicing is a rip off.
    The court heard Darren Upton had written a letter to Judge Sally Cahill QC saying he wasn’t “a typical inmate of prison”.

    But the judge said: “That simply demonstrates your arrogance continues. You are typical. Inmates of prison are people who are dishonest. You are a thoroughly dishonestly man motivated by your own selfish greed.”

    Aye on both counts.

    If you are local to Twickenham, H&L Motors in Fulwell can do Audi servicing (inc proper parts if required) for less than an Audi garage.

    I used to have an A4 but I felt the people in the showroom would look down their noses at me when I booked my 5 year old car in for a service, a sort of condescending look that said "you can't afford a new one".

    Thats why I bought a Jap car and stopped being so pretentious.
