  1. My concern would be the lack of documentation to show buyer when the time comes, and also, how would I reset the service indicator notification on the dash ?
  2. So it's that time when my VW service plan has ended and I need an Oil Service. Does anyone have a recommended VW Specialist in Wiltshire they trust with an R or am I stuck with main dealer ? Cheers
  3. Leased or purchased ?
  4. 25k on Dec15
  5. What I really thank VW for on a snowy morning is when you open the door and it dumps a souvenir on your drivers seat just to remind you for your journey, and I was too tight for heated seats so it doesn't dry out !!
  6. Thanks for the ideas. The issue is the area I have yet to get to deep under the seat, hindered by all the electric crap. Will try some of the potions and keep my eyes open for mice after the forming cheese ! Thank God she wasn't using the R !
  7. Help. My wife spilt a pint of milk in the passenger footwell of her Touareg over xmas. I vacuumed and washed the mats then a few days later had a valet and all seemed well. Wrong. It absolutely stinks now, to the point where you can smell it as you approach the car. I assume it has made it's way under the seat carpet which is impossible to access. Any idea's ? My wife's was to sell it but it is only a year old and would be a bit extreme for a pint of milk. Please help our noses.
  8. I ran a 3 year old Cayenne for 2 years and it cost me about 4k to maintain without the cost of 20 mpg super unleaded. Unless you can carry out maintenance yourself I would give yourself a slap around the face and move on. Brake pads & discs were over a grand. Tyres (20") were over a grand. Original crappy plastic coolant pipes split, 2k repair as the top of the V8 had to come off to access. Electrical glitches. A leeking power steering pump did me in the end and I bailed out. There are much better options which will be cheaper to run, more reliable and you will be able to afford to eat !! Saying that, glad I did it and ticked a box.
  9. Forums are great for gaining information, but when you ask a question like this it is like wiping the pub table clean for a game of Top Trumps. There will always be someone around the corner who has got a cheaper price, better spec, more beneficial payment mechanism. A good deal is something you are happy and comfortable paying in relation to the payback the car will give you. If you think it is too expensive or not a spec you really want then it will never be a good deal, no matter how many posts say it is. If you wait for the perfect deal from advice alone, you will be an expert without a car !! Good luck and go with your heart, but most importantly enjoy the R.
  10. I will probably not be able to get there till about 1130 if that is still ok. Cheers
  11. You can put my name down, just down the road for me, cheers.
  12. I laughed out loud when I watched this trailer. I personally cannot wait and am vindicating Amazon by having to buy a subscription to watch it. BBC should throw in the towel !
  13. Ditto this. Also if you have no intention of just giving the vehicle back at the end then modifying and slightly underestimating the annual mileage does not matter. I have PCP'd in lieu of company car for 7 years/3 vehicles and it is the only viable option if you like shiny new things !
  14. Would be up for a coffee and a chat Saturday pm. Be good to see an estate. Let me know if it's on. Cheers
