    Car servicing at a independent VAG garage

    Would anybody recommend having my six year old passat servicedand MOT'd at a local VAG independent instead of VW main agent, if so would I have any problems regarding the 12 year anti perforation warranty if it was needed to be used. (the indie would use correct oil and parts from TPS) plus its approx 90.00 less than maim dealer.

    As an independent I can say we TEND to me more enthusiastic about what we do but unlike main dealers, the standards vary enormously, more so than the network controlled main dealers so recommendation and reputation are key as they are VERY hard to earn and even easier to damage.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
