  3. Yup. For me, 328 BHP plus drift mode isn’t really a game changer for - can I use drift mode on the road? Probably not. The power isn’t enough to make me want one and the stupid menu system just to change heating and ventilation is pointless and dangerous. I just want some nice dials/knobs. The lack of dials etc just makes the interior more bland. Then there’s the price that VW will want to charge for blandness and very little power upgrades along with no choice of doors or gearbox. I would like to be proved wrong and would happily take a test drive but this is going to be VW’s flagship Golf and it just appears to be very little effort for overpriced blandness.

  4. Comfiest car I’ve ever driven was years ago - my mates SD1. Bored out to 4 litres, manual box, Rover Tech exhaust - sounded awesome but boy it liked a drink! Picked it up off him on the Thursday evening, gave it back on the Sunday. A 330 mile round trip to my parent’s house plus bumming about mileage in between - £70 in petrol - at 1994 prices!!

  5. I had the smell earlier in the year. Got my indy to check and they could see dry residue on the thermostat housing. They suggested having the pump changed at the same time which was exactly what I was going to suggest. Six months down the line, no issue. £990 for everything which was about what I was expecting.

  6. £680 for a major service?? Somebody really bent you over the table there!! Jeez! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. I like the look of this! Those crease lines and sharp tetrahedral shapes are great! A great colour combo too with various bits picked out in red. A limited slip diff too and I reckon the interior looks good as well - I had a Focus ST line once and the interior was the same as the RS - cheap, hard, scratchy plastics. Only thing I can fault is the single, non symmetrical exhaust as mentioned earlier and maybe the wheels are just a bit big? I’d prefer 17s tbh. If they’ve got the suspension sorted, they could be on to a winner - manual box too! I like it! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. This is why I use my indy. How can one dealership clean the Haldex filter and another doesn’t? That’s pretty shoddy really. My indy do my servicing as per the VW schedule but when it comes to the Haldex, they do what I ask. After a couple of poor experiences with SEAT dealerships, I’m sticking with my indy. One dealership tried ripping me off to the tune of £800 by loading unnecessary stuff onto their “health check.” Problem is, those that don’t know fall for it and pay them.

  9. Agree with you both NRW and Becs. I’ve not seen anything about the diff anywhere in the service schedule which I’m surprised at tbh, given that it’s a performance car - hence why I don’t believe in 20k or two yearly engine oil changes. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. I’ve booked my car in for a service. It’s just over 39,000 but should’ve been done in February but lockdown and my illness has prevented me from doing it until now. It’s also due a Haldex service. Last time I did it, the garage mistakenly dropped the diff oil - no big deal as they put fresh oil in but it led me to wonder if there’s actually an oil change interval for the diff and is it worth having it done again as it was done two years ago?

  11. Not noticed tbh. I’m in the “just fill it up” camp too. There’s a Shell garage very close to home and another near work if I need it. I prefer the V Power to Momentum tbh as there’s been a few problems with cars that have filled up at the Tesco here although they were diesel and unleaded I think. I’ve certainly noticed the difference between V Power and 95 though. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. For a general all rounder, I’d be tempted by an M340i X Drive. Not much fun though. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Warsteiner too - it’s not nicknamed Wobbly for nothing - and I’m still trying to remember what I got smashed on at my older brother’s 21st birthday party. Needless to say, I don’t remember using my mum’s ornamental vase on the staircase as a toilet (number 1s only![emoji97][emoji97][emoji23]) and with a house full of family guests too!
