    What are you trying to achieve by gathering others who have had bad experiences together?
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Good point. Unless you're trying to find places to avoid?

    Only place I can completely and utterly tell you to avoid is Aberdeen Audi. Rude, rip off and careless. Things are very rarely done properly and shoddy jobs too. Not a VW garage I know...


    Great place I was full of admiration for was Carlisle Audi. Polite, friendly, I got offered tea, biscuits and newspapers more than just once! There was a TV I could use, they showed me exactly what they'd done, pointed out the faults. Charged me little for labour (for a dealer) and even looked at a little niggles for me free of charge. They washed and valetted my car (it was FILTHY having just travelled 500 miles in it) and it came out remarkably spotless. I was thoroughly impressed. 10/10 for them!

    Does this mean I can't use the term 'shabby national' anymore for my bank

    Bury St Edmunds Audi - first class service in every respect when we bought my other half the used A4 Cabriolet.

    Stansted Audi - use them often for spares, repairs and servicing. A very good dealer with a high level of service in most respects. My only complaint is that they are poor at returning phone calls or calling when they say they will with update information.

    Halfords - love 'em!! Always wandering around the stores picking up bits and bobs.

    It is up to you, I have no empathy for the Abbey National but I do with VAG dealers.

    Often people refer to Halfords as Halfruads and that annoys me too as like you, I find them very useful for what they offer. I was in there last night to pick up some aerosol tins of Plasticoat black. They didn’t have any but arranged for me to pick two up from another branch. The staff aren’t all brilliant but they are by no means the worst. I went into Currys on Sunday and the three I went up to for help insisted on finishing the football conversion they were having before reluctantly asking me what I wanted and even then were completely hopeless. I remember standing in there many years ago when I had just moved house and I needed a new fridge and freezer like yesterday, I ended up waving my credit card in the air and shouting “would anyone like to take some money off me please!”

    I agree Halfords, Curry's, Dixon's etc don't have the best trained staff but these days they seem to at least be willing (unlike your story of a few yeras ago!).

    How about 'Haynes book of lies' how do we feel about that one? Whilst not deadly accurate the trusty Haynes manual has helped me out of many difficult situations in the past.

    "Refitting is the reverse sequence to removal."

    For others see here - Haynes Manuals - what those phrases really mean


    Considering selling my VCDS KEY-USB interface. If you're interested please contact me via PM or email.

    I think the Haynes is great for reference (never taken as Gospel) but has helped me get my head round a number of problems. They don't do one for the VR6 but I've got the Mk2 manual which I refer to in times of desperation (they've got a lot in common with the Mk3) and obviously/foremostly you guys on here.

    That was so funny I hadn't seen it before and yes it pretty much sums up the first 20 years of my DIY mechanics along with my good buddy the Haynes manual. Luckily in the last 10 years I have switched to having specialist garages do the work

    I was at a another forums gathering a few months back (it is mainly for “them int trade like”) and one of the chaps there was the man who has been responsible for most of the Haynes manuals over the thirty odd years. My favourite quote I seem to remember is “this task requires considerable manual dexterity”.

    We had quite a long beer fuelled chat and I came away understanding why Haynes manuals aren’t the book they used to be, say back in the days of the Golf 1 and 2. Cars are so much more complex than they used to be with such significant variations between models that it is simply impossible to put a comprehensive manual together. We tried to work out how many pages a full Golf 4 manual would take. The largest part of any VAG manual these days is the wiring diagrams and when we had decided that even compressing VAG A4 current flow page into two per page and double sided printing, the wiring diagrams alone would fill over 500 pages! With all the engine, gearbox, brake, running gear variations we reckoned that a full and comprehensive Golf 4 manual could run to 2000 pages.
