Recently had an Audi A7 inspected by Chris and the team that I was looking to purchase from a non-Audi dealership. The service and communication throughout the process was impeccable, and the inspection flagged up multiple issues with the vehicle, which resulted in me not buying it.

I highly recommend Archibalds Audi for your servicing requirements, or pre-purchase inspections.
