Halo audi fans,
I am an army officer and planning a PCS move to germany for three years this coming february. In my garage is a 01.5 B5 S4 6MT and I had some questions about maintenance, repairs and parts availability in Germany.
Right now, the car is in pretty good shape, I am having some problems with my transmission and clutch but nothing that is keeping me from driving safely, just annoying. Is there a significant difference in the cost of repairs in germany for this car vs the cost in the US?
Also, I had a (I shit you not) tree fall on my car, it was pretty small but it did some extensive dent damage as well as crack the paint on the passenger door. Is it realistic to think I could get better work done in germany than here in the states?
Finally, is there an appreciable difference in getting a stage 3+ upgrade to the car in germany vs. here in the states. The stnd K04 upgrade here for a shop to do it seems to be around 4-5k. I dont really have the time or means to do upgrades repairs to my car so I would be paying someone else to.
As I said, I'll be moving to the Vilseck/Amberg/Nuremburg area so feel free to drop me a line if you're around.
