Perhaps I have not been clear enough.
The body shop part of the work done was _excellent_. My concerns are
with the mechanical aspects.
I had a conversation with someone at the company today. Two amusements
occured. The first concerned the refitting of the broken undertray:
"Ah, sir, you should have been given a message by the delivery
driver. The undertray is discontinued and no longer available
"Odd," I replied, "I have a new one here shipped direct from
Audi's western spares depot in Soest the day before yesterday."
The second concerned the absence of camber on the right front wheel:
"Ah, well, there are _tolerances_."
"Yes," I replied, "50 minutes of arc plus or minus thirty minutes.
Zero is not an option. Furthermore, it violates Rule 2 which
states no more than 30 minutes between sides - and the left
is _exactly_ 50 degrees as set by BR Motorsport."
I've since had a telephone call of a somewhat different nature.
