    19 inch tyres

    I was considering them, but in the end went for Michelin pilot sport 4s, as there was only £15 difference and I figure the Michelin should last longer (from previous Michelin’s I’ve had).

    Leave vehicle in P

    Replacement part for me as well, no arguing with the dealer they never suggested anything else.

    Error Workshop !!

    Dropped my car off at the dealers yesterday, phone call this afternoon confirming they have diagnosed the fault and parts are required (gear selector in their words). Parts on order for arrival on Wednesday, so get to drive around in the 1.0 Up a bit longer.....lucky me!!! 🤔
  8. That looks good, do you mind me asking how much and how long it took to do??

    Error workshop light

    To be fair to them, they have been really good. I’ve had a couple of issues and all of them have been sorted without any drama.

    Error workshop light

    Brilliant, thanks for that. spoke to the dealership and it’s booked it for next week. They even said they have heard of it before and were aware of the issue.

    Error workshop light

    Wondered if anyone could help, I’ve had this message appear twice now on my 2017 Golf R DSG. Both times the car has been left in P with the handbrake applied. Turning the engine on and off doesn’t clear the message, but driving off does clear it?!? Any help much appreciated! 🤔
