Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Northampton Audi is currently closed. Please call us, email or use our website Live Chat facility to contact remote teams during our current working hours of 08:30-17:30 Monday to Friday.
We are currently only taking bookings for MOT bookings up to a maximum one week in advance, if you have an MOT due before April 1st, for Key Workers, or if your vehicle has suffered a breakdown and you require urgent assistance.
Welcome to Northampton Audi. Our state-of-the-art Centre is ideally positioned just off of the A4500, on Weedon Road. With great connections to Wellingborough and Kettering, Northampton Audi has a designated Audi S and Audi RS product showroom, private handover bays and a new vehicle configuration area we can’t wait to welcome you in to. If you’re visiting us with your existing vehicle, we’ll be sure that our Audi trained Technicians not only look after your car but we’ll look after you too. Our Audi lounge offers complimentary WiFi and refreshments so you can keep busy, whilst we’re keeping busy on your Audi. Please see below for more information on the sales and service facilities offered at Northampton Audi. We look forward to seeing you in our Centre soon.
If you head over to our Vindis Audi centre in Northampton - whether it’s to check out the range of cars in the showroom or to bring your beloved Audi in for maintenance - we will make sure that your visit is in total comfort with our modern Audi lounges.
We offer a range of facilities on site to make sure that purchasing or servicing your Audi is the enjoyable experience it should be.
We also understand and appreciate how busy you are, so for those of you who would like to spend some time catching up we offer complimentary use of our office and boardroom, with access to a computer, telephone and printer facilities.
The sales experience at Northampton Audi is second to none, it has a brand new relaxing customer lounge overlooking the showroom. There is also a specific S and RS showroom showcasing the Audi Sport range, this is of course on top of the 23 car showroom with two handover bays making the collection of your Audi even more special.
When you visit Northampton Audi to have your Audi serviced you are greeted at our service drive through reception by the friendly team. Who will then introduce you to your Service Advisor to answer any questions you may have and talk you through the work that is due to be carried out on your Audi.
All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
For this reason, and in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as of 6.00pm 23/03/2020 we made the decision to temporarily close all Vindis showrooms to members of the public. Whist we know this may cause some disappointment, our priority is to protect the well-being of our employees and customers in line with the latest Government guidance. For customers due to take delivery of your new vehicle we will be in contact and will aim to complete your transaction in a safe and compliant manner.
For those customers that are booked in for Aftersales care, all bookings other than those for Key Workers (as identified by the Government’s latest listings), urgent MOT’s and breakdowns are in the process of being cancelled; and each existing booking will have been confirmed with our team in advance of your visit to site. For other routine service and maintenance items, we will be in touch to re-arrange your booking for as soon as we re-open.
In order to facilitate the above, we have opened selected workshops to conduct this work, and all other dealerships are completely closed:
Huntingdon Volkswagen remains open and will conduct service work for Peterborough Audi, Huntingdon Audi and Huntingdon Van Centre Vindis Cambridge Service Centre remains open and will also conduct service work for Cambridge Volkswagen, SKODA Cambridge, SKODA Bury St. Edmunds, Fakenham Volkswagen and Cambridge Audi Bedford Audi remains open and will also conduct work for Bedford Volkswagen and Milton Keynes SEAT Northampton Van Centre remains open and will conduct work also for Northampton Audi and Milton Keynes SEAT
In order to protect both you and our staff, upon arrival, please follow the instructions on the door in order to gain access. Additionally, it is vital that we ask that you do not attend any of our sites without having had a clear and specific communication that you qualify under one of the above guidelines, and we thank you in advance for complying with this difficult and possibly disruptive decision. Please also note that we have amended our service opening hours during this period to 08:30 – 17:30 Monday to Friday and closed during weekends.
Finally, although our showrooms are closed, should you wish to contact us we would be delighted to help you remotely in anyway possible; the best methods in which to contact us is either via email or through the live chat function found on our main Vindis Group website.
Please stay safe through this unprecedented period and we know that by working together, we will come through this stronger.
Having worked in the motor industry since 1999, I have always had an ambition to represent the Audi brand and I feel privileged to be able to do this working for the Vindis Group. I am striving to deliver an outstanding business for both our customers and employees and will look to continuously improve all we do. I aim to achieve this through delivering a consistently high customer experience, backed up with innovative new ideas and IT solutions, implemented with a consultative approach. 'Vorsprung durch Technik' (advancement through technology) has never been more relevant than today and it is through modern, smarter, more relevant technologies combined with great people that we will be able to deliver our goals to an ever more informed and demanding consumer. I have one goal in mind for Northampton Audi and that is to be the “go to Centre” for any prospective or current Audi owner and employee within our locality.
Firstly, we want to thank you for purchasing your vehicle through the Vindis Group and hope that you have had an enjoyable experience so far. It should now be getting close to your handover and we hope that you are as excited about collecting your vehicle, as we are to hand it over to you!
As you know, there are several things that have to be covered prior to taking delivery and we wanted to share these with you to ensure your handover runs as smoothly as possible.
We appreciate that you may have been surfing the internet trying to find the best insurance quote for your vehicle and acknowledge that this can sometimes take some time. In an attempt to take the stress away from rushing this, we can offer you a complimentary 5 Day Free Insurance through Audi, allowing you plenty of time to find the right insurance for you.
To take up this offer, all you have to do is contact Audi 5 Day Free Insurance on 0345 8776236 - quoting "Northampton Audi, dealer 443". They usually provide you with an insurance quote at the same time as confirming the free insurance, but don't worry, this does not mean you have to use them for your insurance, the decision is yours.
If you have just purchased a brand new vehicle then we will of course ensure this vehicle is taxed prior to you taking delivery. If you have purchased an Approved Used vehicle then you have the responsibility of ensuring the vehicle is taxed prior to it being driven on a public highway. This process can be easily completed online and can be done in advance or we are happy to help you complete this during your handover.
Part exchanging a vehicle?
If you have chosen to part with your existing vehicle through us then we request you bring all the necessary documents relating to that vehicle i.e. V5 Logbook, MOT Certificate (if applicable), the handbook, service history and all of the vehicle's keys.
It is also important to advise that whilst we will have given you a price for your vehicle, this may be subject to change depending on the condition/mileage when it is handed over to us. However in absolute transparency with you, we will carry out another full appraisal of the vehicle on the day of handover and will keep you fully aware of if there are any changes in the vehicle valuation, as well as the reasons why.
Funding your New/Approved Used vehicle
To ensure the handover process runs efficiently, we require that all vehicle funds are cleared prior to collection and we have several options in place for you to ensure this:
If you choose to pay using cash, due to money laundering legislation, we only take a maximum of £500 in any one transaction so if your new vehicle costs more than this, the balance would need to be transferred via one of the other methods above.
We hope all of this information helps, but if you think of any questions that we haven't covered, then please give us a call.
Once again, thank you for your custom and we look forward to welcoming you back in the showroom on handover!
