    What’s this part Audi left off?

    Had my car in with Audi for some work (including fixing something they broke last time) and I’ve come home and found this in the trunk. Anyone know what it is?

    It was an Audi main dealer... it’s not the first time they’ve left parts off the car either!

    I’ve just checked and the part we have is from a different car, a gen 2. Why the trunk on our car was being used to store parts from another I do not know

    Time to call it a day with the Audi dealers and run to Ricky.

    Dealerships are a joke sometimes. I had a Lexus dealer that tried to tell me that the dust cover from my engine was missing when it came to them. They were the only one that had serviced that car at that point.

    If only he wasn’t 4 hours away! I’m not sure how non main dealer servicing affects resale either

    Any R8 enthusiast who sees the care for sale he's interested in has been serviced by Ricky, would regard that as a big positive factor.

    My last car had main dealer only "servicing" Northampton/Tetbury/Swindon I think.

    The pollen filters were just jammed in all curled up? They sump drain threads were all stripped from being over torqued and the plugs had never been swapped. The ducts under the oil tank were shredded to. The dealers just shrugged it all off.

    I did loads of TLC on it myself and also got a local indy to help with the messy extra tasks.

    New sump was £675 plus fitting - that was a bitter pill after paying £480 just for an oil change - that all got thrown away.
