As the title says, does anyone know a good independent in the south Manchester/Cheshire/NW Derbyshire area?

A Google search turned up a few and "Audi Doctor" in Stockport looks promising, but it's always great to hear recommendations from fellow Audi owners.

Thanks, I'd heard of Awesome GTI but didn't realise they were so close - about 25 miles, which isn't too bad.

Hi guys. My rear centre brake light (LED strip below the spoiler) has failed and so I need to get it replaced. Had a quote from Audi who wants to charge me a £99 30 mins inspection fee, plus another £57 for the part itself and I'm waiting to hear back from them what the labour charge is going to be.

So I'm also looking for any garage recommendations in the South Manchester area (I live in Didsbury) that I can trust my beloved car to and have someone who knows what they're doing. So any pointers would be greatly appreciated as whilst it's in, I'd also like them to take a look at a slight juddering whilst driving and breaking but with what Audi's quoted me for 30 mins, I have a feeling the inspection alone could start racking up :(

I've had the White House garage in Stockport recommended by someone who knows them - might be worth looking at as they're so close to you. I haven't used them myself.

That's good to know, they've got a lot of recent favourable reviews on Facebook.
Only 8 miles from me too.

Thanks E.L.Wisty. Just received the price from Audi who wants to charge me £141.60 to fit the light so I'm looking at just under £200 inc. VAT to get it replaced. Not sure if that's a reasonable price but I'll certainly get in touch with the folks at White House garage and see what they quote me. Will let you know.

Well all I can say is thank you so much for pointing me towards White House Garage. They were super helpful and able to squeeze me in at short notice. The price they quoted was less than half that quoted by Audi (£88 inc. VAT fitted vs just under £200) and the whole job was completed in just over 30 mins.

I'd also booked my car in to have all four wheels tracked and aligned but the guy told me that I needed new tyres and pointed me in the direction of a tyre specialist. Said it wasn't worth paying to have this done now, as it would need redoing after the new tyres were fitted.

An honest garage run by lovely people who provided me with a good price and delivered a great service. Couldn't fault them and would happily recommend White House Garage to anyone with a TT (or any make/model of vehicle for that matter) in the South Manchester area.

Thanks E.L.Wisty

Hi CloudDweller, that's great to know and thanks for reporting back. I have a few little jobs lined up that I need doing and they aren't a million miles away from me. Because they'd been recommended to me by someone who knows what he's talking about I had them at the top of my list and it's good to get an independent confirmation!

Thanks for the report, Hempshaw Lane really isn't that far from me, I'll be looking them up when I need a service. :)
