  1. It's all openly documented (https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk), you just have a state why you think the funding offered is not fair/realistic. I've yet to find the outcome of the GTI submission as the process takes a while. However, on the Brabus I did a table listing all the cars of similar spec available (not many!) and then plotted a graph - mileage v price. I then drew a line from the mileage mine had which provided a suggested price. The Ombudsman service I though was very communicative and fair in their decision (slightly below my suggestion). Obviously part of the argue with the Brabus (and Lupo GTI) was there really isn't enough changing hands to allow the price guides to list realistic prices.
  2. They have made a final offer which includes me keeping the car. I have accepted but this does not prejudice me taking them to the Financial Ombudsman (which I am). I've had the sam scenario before when my Smart Brabus Roadster Coupe was stolen, Ombudsman ruled in my favour and insurance company paid more money.
  3. I'm in Morpeth, I'll sill is ok, but not perfect - drop me a PM with your number and I can send you a pic.
  4. One final bump before I finish removing parts and get it scrapped on Thursday...
  5. Still arguing with them - they don't have a clue!
  6. Drop me a PM with an offer on the suspension - happy to send you a photo if you send me your mobile. Someone is looking to purchase the whole bumper assembly so can't sell the plastic cover separately (assume you mean the bit in the pic)
  7. Firemen thought it was an electrical fault near fuse box, no evidence of foul play. Wiring loom and interior shot and the cost to rebuild wouldn’t work. Even firemen said it was a shame given how clean (and recently polished!) the car was... Gutted is an understatement
  8. Hi all, it saddens me to say my much loved GTI ended up on fire a few weeks back. As a category B I am now breaking the car and open to contact about parts you might need. Quick heads up: The fire was in the passenger compartment and hence the (leather!) interior is gone. The firewall did it's job (in reverse) so the engine bay is fine. Bonnet and front passenger wing received the the firemen's best work so are bent and broken No glass in doors or boot KW suspension (adjustable dampers and shocks) with a circa 40mm drop G60 front callipers Customer stainless exhaust Bathurst 15" alloys and good tyres I'm going to strip the car and list some specific items but happy to take any requests for specifics. Happy to post items during lockdown within reason! Drop me an PM Cheers
  9. Thanks Pete for the quick reply. I've got a few more (hopeful) checks to do in daylight tomorrow so will look for the earth strap - still hoping it's fallen off as I spent ages looking for it with a torch to no avail! Cannot be bothered with a DIY job so I guess it's off to the garage for that and the temp sensor if the earth isn't a solution
  10. Hi, I have a 2002 Lupo GTI Firstly apologies for the easy question - my battery light came on today so I naturally assumed alternator so check voltage and no increase on voltmeter so wen ton to try and diagnose. Q1 - I cannot see an earth strap to the chassis, can anyone point it out on a photo or parts diagram (sorry!). I also assume there is a gearbox one too Q2 - if revved the battery light goes out (but can't see an increase on the voltmeter). Any ideas on cause? Bad connect (on earth I can find and hence revs might arc it)? Alternator diode (not sure what this is but have read some things on the forum). Just to throw something in (which makes me think earth) is that yesterday my water temp gauge fluctuated up and down... Any help would be a life saver
  11. Perfect, I've sent you a PM
  12. Could you spare the petrol flap?
