    Im F***** off

    With companys that rip you off.
    As you may know my gear box needed replacing due to the diff, packing its bags and leaving a hole in the box.

    well first time I have seen the car since I took it to a gearbox specialist for them to look at, who told me the diagnostic.
    I used them to fit my clutch.
    Well I booked it in for tuesday with them. but needed it done sooner, so found another guy to do the job. And got it in today all fitted.

    He said to me. "what exactly is wrong with this box?" told him what the gear box specialist said, and he said that he couldnt find any so called hole any were, and said it sounds more like the differential bearing had gone. so it could have been refurbed easily and cheeper than what it has cost.
    seems to me he was going to refurb my box and sell it to me as a new gear box. so not very happy
    best of all when they done my clutch they had to drop my sub frame and failed to put two bolts back so the guy doing my gear box had to go to the main dealer and get me two new bolts. and also the previous place never even put seat covers on my seats and now have seats covered in oil and shit, not good for alacantara when white.
    And bowed my bumper under the light were It looks as though it was nealed on. not a happy chappie.
    taking my old box to another specialist to see what they say.

    Hopefully you can get the diff bearing fixed on your old one cheap then you'll have either a spare box or a one you can sell. I don't know anythng about your car so is it big bhp and is going through boxes regularly or is this a one off?

    Not the samething, buy my wife had 2 new tyres on the back of her TT this week and they did not fit one of the centre caps properly, so a trip to the local Audi dealer in Norwich, who were great, and we had to pay for the new one.

    It was only £21, but that's not the point, sloppy workman ship has cost the customer.

    Mine you the orginal place we went to wanted to fit the wrong rated tyres to it!

    So much for "specialists"
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    its typical of companys now adays. people just dont give a flying **** about other peoples property anymore. they just wanna make as much money as poss with as little work as poss. hope you get it sorted.
