  1. Rear discs had a decent lip on them but were also pretty corroded. Tried the warranty discussion as not fit for purpose but weren’t having any of it! Im surprised they needed doing tbh
  2. 66 plate R hearse on 30k Miles, went in for its service today and had to do the rear pads and discs. The Stealer started trying to charge me £469, and with a single challenge dropped their price to £315. Just a heads up in case it happens to anyone else. Incidentally, I’m surprised by the state of the rear discs so soon!
  3. Have you tried Teesside/Middlesbrough VW? I’ve been using them over Darlington.
  4. It’s a known golf fault so stand your ground.
  5. Just had mine fixed at dealer. 16 plate estate. Go to dealer they’ll fix it, it’s a speaker seal that failed. I got new seal, new speaker and new carpet.
  6. 5k in to crossclimate + ownership and very good. Truly excellent in the wet and snow, very good in hot and dry!
  7. Hi all. Coming to 20k service, 66 plate dsg estate. It’s my last ‘free’ service so I’m tempted to get the oil change done on the gearbox and haldex to spread the cost a little and I’m of the view it’s bettee to change the oil more regularly rather than less. However this is considerably short of the intervals. Sensible or not? Want to look after the car as it’s my keeper.
  8. Michelin cross climates here. Lovely. Very quiet too.
  9. For what it’s worth the cross climates I had fitted on Friday have been tremendous. If anyone is considering.
  10. How does it work with the boot floor in the lower position? anyone compared one to the hatchbag?
  11. Tbh I’m mega impressed, these cars are very tough!!!
  12. Didnt find anything! They are doing the alignment as well which they felt was out but no physical issues.
  13. Ouch! That’ll sting. Mine booked in Saturday morning for hunter alignment and physical check over at the stealer.
  14. Don’t envy you there. I’m used to the fairly crap North Yorkshire roads, but the 82 at the moment is a shocker. Seems to be driving ok this morning so I’ll crack on and just get it all checked when back home. Old tyres so a bit of wonky alignment won’t kill me!
  15. Hi, thanks for that. Maybe it is just a perception thing then. But sounds like not. I guess it could be a bit of wear on the shocks?
