Diagnostic fee limit

Just discovered an Audi dealership in Cleveland (Sunnyside) which sets an
absolute $500 cap on dealer diagnostic fees, applicable to any model year
Audi, after which regional company specialists show up and "....the car
_will_ get fixed" with no more diagnostic fees.
Found this out talking with a local 95.5 S6 owner who spent months and many
hundred dollars at an independent, trying to get a mysteriously stubborn S6
to start and run. It didn't, and eventually the owner had it towed to a
dealer 60 miles away....Sunnyside is still working on it and it still isn't
running. But there is a cap on what the dealer will charge for diagnostics.
I thought the list might not be aware of that cap, since many of us avoid
dealers. Maybe some of you can verify that this is a nationwide Audi dealer
