    I wondered how long it would be until the 'dieselgate' saga reared its ugly head! Despite OTHER MANUFACTURERS CHEATING AS WELL, VW seem to be the only ones who are the anti-Christ. Jeez, get over it! How about Vauxhall Zafira's that spontaneously combust? Or Toyota's that spontaneously combust? Or Honda's airbags that go off in your face even though you've not hit anything? Its been blown out of all proportion because VW are a successful company. And for the record, it's not affected sales of new VW's either. Sorry about that. You broke your ONE AND ONLY key, and it's VW's fault? It's your fault but you want to blame VW because the time-frame involved is inconvenient to you. Plan ahead, get a spare key. Or make friends with a good mobile locksmith, they're handy guys to know in situations like this. 'I've worn my clutch out by slipping it all day. Come on VW, that's your fault!' Sounds dumb doesn't it. Dealers DO NOT set recommended parts prices for parts, VW Germany do. I find a lot of parts are overpriced, much like a lot of things in life are. But you do get what you pay for. A lot of the aftermarket stuff is pure rubbish, and that is why you pay less for it in the first place, because it is shite. Dealers DO NOT have any control of how long a part takes to arrive. There are a lot of factors involved with this. Do you think a supplier of ball joints for example, only supplies them to VW? And those suppliers have to be supplied with the raw materials to make the part in the first place. VW keys are not made by VW but a few companies that have made them for VW, much like Chubb do for Ford (which are also shite!) Is a dealer expected to keep key information for every VW in their records? They are stored SECURELY so that not every Tom, Dick or Harry has access to a minefield of information. And you can imagine the fun the media would have if it ever happened that VW key records got out in the open! Get a grip man. The key broke. You needed a new one, and your local dealer has ordered one for you. Oh and you do know it will need coding to the car as well, as it won't start until you do? Another security device, but I guess that's an inconvenience too until someone wants to steal your car, then it will be a God-send.

    It was the fax, an email would have seemed like a better idea, or their internal parts system! Anyway, that passed a few minutes.

    YES! Apart from how easy the seats get dirty. My own experience my vrs was better than my 140hp sportback in every department even interior Finnish. Owned the Fabia for 3 years as its second owner & not a single creak or rattle to be heard, the same could. It be said of my A3. The way I saw it at the time was that the vrs was not brilliant at any one thing but good at everything if you know what I mean.

    Quite possible the best all round car I've owned. Sold it for an Audi A3 sportback, big regret.

    Thanks guys, glad you like it I'm pretty happy with the way the GTi is looking at the moment. I did toy with the idea of fitting a stubby mirror, but I'd rather leave it as original as possible Might give the brake calipers a lick of paint when the winter wheels go on...

    Always pleased to learn of another 5 owner on the board RE updates there's not much to mention really, I seem to have reached a stage where the car is pretty much as it was planned to be. I often toy with the idea one of the many turbo conversions that do the rounds but given it's such an original and early example it seems like a bit of a shame to modify it too much. For now I'm just enjoying the occasional blat round country lanes/B-roads, very little intervention has been required as she's in really good shape. This season I've changed the coolant and thats about it really... SAM_5437 by

    that's good advice the only alternative I might suggest is 14" vw steel wheels as they seem less prone to going flat

    I should update this more often, it's been nearly 6 months since last time The 15th of May marked the 2nd year of ownership of the car, and I sometimes wonder why I didn't buy one of these earlier... So far and since my last update, the car has had a very small service, new spark plugs and cleaning of the leads alongside a new air filter. I'm waiting to do the oil service, having already bough the filter and the oil. After having to jumpstart the car a couple of times, it turned out the old battery was dead. I tried doing a whole charging cycle on it which didn't work at all, so in the end I had to buy a new battery . As for changes, I bought and installed a Gamma radio as the plan is to fit 8 speakers this summer. And yes, I know these were standard in the UK And now a couple pictures of a little drive I did this morning:

    I'm just gonna strip my ball joints when they need replacing, it's usually the ball that wears out first anyway.
