Hi Guys,

Just some advice please.
My car is booked into Audi tomorrow for it's first MOT, when I arranged to book it in I was asked if I wanted 'forte protection' or at least it sounded like that!

Anyway they told me it was somthing that they added to the car prior to the MOT to improve the cars fuel efficiency! (Costs approx £20.00) Being a woman and blinded by their expanation I just agreed!

So, my question is: has anyone ever heard of this or been offered it by their Audi franchised dealer? and if they have is it worth it?

Or is this just another money making scam by the stealer???

Thank You.

Michala

I think your first mistake was taking it to a dealer! Never heard of that stuff
My car is 8 yrs old and sailed thru its MOT yesterday with no work at all.

cancel the MOT and go to a local place near by. no doubt they will probably find something which needs changing

An MOT can be done anywhere, so if your able to and have time to, cancel it with Audi and have a lot of faith as IT WILL PASS :p :wink:

I like the fillings in the post quip :lol:

Chester Audi are one of the better dealers too. Always friendly, free coffee and the occasional free part thrown in. I once had 40 minutes of free diagnosis for which they appologised for the wait! :eek:

I suppose they may have been sold the treatment by a salesperson who took them in too :roll: .

I wouldn't bother with oil addatives as a good oil should have all it needs to start with. I'm planning on seeing them next week so I'll quiz them over this :wink: .

Welcome by the way :)

i take mine to the local authority fo MOT , they do all the Taxis there and are non biased .Plus I work on the authority so get MOT half price at £20
Audi offerd me free MOT for life but there is no chance , they would prob find 20k worth of work IMO
