Mechanic Recommendation in Lausanne

I am planning to buy a second-hand Audi A3 convertible, and I have already identified the car and it's from a private individual.
However, I have no expertise with the cars and to identify if there any major issues or red flags during the inspection. If you have any recommendation on great car mechanics in Lausanne who can help me to do these checks before I buy, I would be grateful. Thank you!

Re: Mechanic Recommendation in Lausanne

When I lived in Lausanne I was very pleased with the service at a small privately-run garage in Bellevaux, Garage Auto May. Very reasonably priced, and the owner is very straightforward and super friendly (but speaks only French and Turkish). He worked for Audi for years before opening his own garage, so I'd trust him to make a good assessment of the car you're thinking of buying.

Would you happen to have the link or the contact of the garage as I can't find it on Google? Thank you for your recommendation.

It is super small and looks a bit dodgy from the outside, but the guy working there is first-class.
