Decent MOT Testing Station

hi,
it's that time of the year and as it's my 1st year with this car i don't want to give it to Audi directly as i don't really like the service they provided to me so far so want to find any local decent MOT testing stations around Bedfordshire area, to be precise Dunstable, but would travel for a good few miles as long as i know that they do decent job and obviously for decent price. any suggestions would be really good, thanks all in advance!
cheers.

Indetech in MK can organise MOTs, well respected, and won't screw you over on any required repairs.
My brother lives in Dunstable, I'll ask him if he knows anywhere good for a closer to home option

Beep beep.

To be fair I don't think i would mind going to MK if that's needed, just need to find someone who would be close enough just to drop in the car in case of emergencies etc.
Thanks for that.

Just booked it with indetech for few weeks from now - 45 and they will provide me with a courtesy car free of charge! Pleased with that, Watford Audi charges 20 if you want a courtesy car on top of the job that you would do and 5 more for the mot also, but they give you something like 700 for parts if you would fail your mot on non wear and tear parts

The Audi deal sounds good but when I looked into it, it only counts from the second MOT you have with them, so they'll just sting you good on the first :-(

Nothing unusual I suppose, I'm quite prepared to pay for something that needs to be done, but they're just cunning basterds trying to lure you in and skin you... Just don't trust them after all the shit I went thru after buying the car, so would rather support someone who deserves it

Done the mot today, used indetech and the guys are nice and with 45 price including the courtesy car the price ain't bad. Got a few advisories, back tyres going close to limit and another one is quite weird that I cant really figure out, it says - fitted undertray? Wtf would that suppose to mean???

The MOT testers aren't allowed to remove anything. Your car has an undertray, so they couldn't see anything behind it. They have to mention it for legal reasons, in case you have an accident because something hidden by the undertray failed, you can't tell them off for not inspecting it.

Well I suppose that's why that part was invented, to cover somethin up in order to maintain it better, but I just couldn't figure out what they meant...
Thanks for clearing up
