Independent Audi Garage & Service Centre in South West London

Waterfall are an independent garage in Wimbledon specialising in VAG (Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT and Skoda) and BMW vehicles. Our fully trained technicians use dealer level diagnostic equipment, allowing us to take care of all your Audi service, MOT, maintenance and repair needs.

How to save money on your Audi service

Before European legislation that came into force a few years ago, it was difficult to have a new car serviced outside a franchised dealer without it affecting the warranty. You weren’t able to shop around for the best price for an Audi service.

But now you are no longer tied to the high prices charged by your local service dealer. Independent garages like Waterfall can service and maintain your Audi from brand new, using genuine Audi parts, without affecting your warranty.
