Audi garage north of Basel?
 
Does anyone know one that might be more *cough* economical than on the CH side?
The forum has previously presented this one in France for an independent shop suggestion; I'm now looking for an Audi accredited one in case I want to maintain service book tradition. (Wouldn't mind them speaking English, either, but that need not be critical.)

Pointers appreciated, cheers!

(OK, OK - northish, within convenient day driving distance, assuming one lives in Basel. I was sort of hoping I don't need to specify this.=)

That's how it goes? Got to love vendor lock-in...

Thought there might be garages, probably paying extortionate license fees for Audi's proprietary system bus thingamajigs, but still private enterpreneurs, and priced somewhere between independent garage and flagship store prices. No?

Is the Audi in warranty?
If no then an independent. If yes then stay on the dealer network.

No longer in warranty.
So maybe I should drop the 'accredited' part, then, and just ask for positive experiences on Audi service... and thingamajig possession. (I don't actually know that whatever connectors/analyzers/protocols they use are proprietary, but that's what I'd expect from a car company.)

only for specialist tasks is dealer specific computers needed.

general system reviews is universal

Hi OP,

25 minutes from Basel in the city of Binzen in Germany you'll find an Audi Dealer. Here is the address:

ASAG Binzen Audi
Meitnerring 3
79589 Binzen
Tel: 07 621 40 29-0
Fax: 07621 40 29-199

Or you can try the one in Lorrach which could work out closer for you:

Wiesentalstraße 30/31 79540 Loerrach, Germany +49 7621 15090

My opinion is that they will work out even cheaper than the independents that you may use in Basel. Why would you take the risk with a nobody somewhere in DE.

Thanks,

Stig
