Im just glad you put (on your car) at the title end. You could only imagine some people expecting their blood pressure and prostate examined.

came here to make a similar joke as above how sad am i for likes

not really worth taking your car just for this.

regardless, this is very hot. The price of official Audi servicing has gone through the roof- I suppose you could think of this as a mini sort of service

I'm always dubious of free check like this, when they are checking your hoses for example they can be put under stress that might not happen during normal driving conditions. They will no doubt find something that needs doing, if they don't is that any guarantee that everything will be fine during the winter months? not really.

Good for free, but either outcome may well be pointless in my opinion.
(Unnecessary work being done or a false sense of security with no work being done)

Get some decent breakdown cover, check your antifreeze instead.

When it breaks, fix it.

Inability to keep a safe distance to the car in front - check
Automatic "Car in front keeping to the speed limit" detector, rapid flashing headlight - check
Undertake function fully functional - check
Automatic speed limit exceed tool activated - check

Congratulations, your Audi has passed.

Nice, will be using this. Hot

That's it why bother with any safety checks when you can buy breakdown cover? And you check your antifreeze how??

In a nutshell, you mix the correct type of antifreeze with the right amount of water (if applicable) and top up your cars coolant tank to the required level. Easier than making a cup of coffee.

Nice link to explain.

Its like the yearly MOT they never check every possible area of your car, they simply don't have the time, they check they key areas and pick a few more at random also looking for any obvious problems - having a brand new MOT doesn't mean your car is safe or won't breakdown. A full service is more comprehensive, although you do have to pay more for it.

Heat ...

better than halfords, if you got an audi of course.

I assume this is only for Audi cars,as it doesn't specify,whereas Halfords Free Winter Health Check can be for any.

By mixing 50/50 is NOT checking your antifreeze it topping it up! Antifreeze has to be changed it does not last for ever in your cooling system and just topping it up is doing you no favours long term. Get it checked!
An MOT is in no way connected to weather you car will breakdown! its safety! (at the time of test) there are no random areas to check on a MOT all parts to be checked are documented and you can request a full list of Testable items from VOSA
"A full service is more comprehensive" wrong! there are different levels of "full service" as you like to call them, and this will not ensure your car will not break down!
You can only minimise the chance of breaking down not illuminate it!
This is why if you are offered a FREE winter check by a main agent you would be stupid NOT to take advantage of it! Just avoid Lego mechanics like Hell frauds
