It's run by Marc Schreuder - this guy remembered my face and car from 2 years ago...even the two previous vehicles my father brought to them.

They've moved from the Ladies Mile premises to a business park in Diep River / Plumstead (you'll have to phone to find out exactly). I've taken my previous Audi to them and I must say that they go the extra mile. Car was given a full valet - they even fixed a squeak in the door that I forgot about. They phone you about any updates with regards to costs and additional work required, etc. Charge about R400 an hour for labour.

I'll post my future experiences here when the time comes.

Wow, awesome. So you reckon they know their Audis/VWs then.

"At R1 465 000 the RS6 Avant represents a relative saving in the RS family as it costs R130 000 less than the similarly-engined Audi RS7 Sportback.

The pricetag is appropriately matched with a bountiful spec sheet that includes electrically adjustable seats, navigation, and electrically operated tailgate.

Dip further into the kids’ varsity budget and you can order toys like a panoramic glass sunroof (R23 130), exterior carbonfibre mirrors (R20 880) or a head-up display (R16 170) among others.

The cool Matrix LED headlamps you see in the photo go for an extra R16 170."

While on the subject of mirrors, I thought the RS always had silver mirrors

Anyone heard of Bidvest's motor plan offerings? I've filled in a couple of webforms and will find out more tomorrow. I heard about this plan after speaking to one of the performance workshop places when I was trying to get their opinion on the Motorite offerings. Anyway, he said generally speaking these plans are hit and miss but I should likely still get value out of them. The Bidvest plan however had him very surprised that they paid out the full amount for the repairs/replacement since normally they try to find some loop in order not to pay.

I was still busy typing this post and then they called me to give me the breakdown. R429 a month but then they only cover 25k for the engine which is less cover at a higher cost than the Motorite offering (R390 p.m. and 35k for engine cover) from The Engine Room. Bidvest have a double cover option at R749 p.m. but then that is getting a bit rich for my blood.
