I've used the same independent garage for thirty years with no problems, I don't know what to do about servicing my new arona take it to main seat dealer where I bought it or the garage I know we'll and trust him. am I right in thinking if my independent garage used genuine seat parts the warranty would still be validated ,also would be cheaper than seat main dealer.

You are correct, if genuine Seat parts are used and reflected on the invoice by a VAT registered independent the warranty will still be valid. However, you will not have any software updates, and no service record on Seat's system, and you will loose the third year of Seat Assist if the second service is not carried out by a dealer. Additionally, you are likely to be in a weaker position if you try to negotiate goodwill for any out of warranty major failures.

I will stick with the main dealer, but I do not have a trusted independent.
