  2. That makes sense as I can’t see many t-roc R’s ever going on track.
  3. I think the radiator could be a cheaper fix at least at a main dealer. I had mine done under warranty and was told if I was paying I would be looking at around £1000 due to labour to get at the water pump. There’s a lot to remove from the engine to get the pump out I understand.
  4. Any reputable car dealer would help out a customer who just bought a car from them and something major went wrong within a short space of time. His reputation would be in taters otherwise and everyone would avoid him. The fact he’s still in business today shows he must be a half decent car salesman. A lot bigger than him have gone to the Wall over the years. He’s offering a more personal car buying experience. I would trust him over a vw dodgy main dealer salesman anyday.
  5. The under seat draws are perfect for storing antibacterial wipes. An essential in the current climate.
  6. I think vw reliability went south across the range after the mk2 golf. The days where they could use a slogan like ‘If only everything in life was as reliable as a vw’ is well and truly consigned to the history books.
  7. You'll be hit with import duty on these.
  8. Yes dash plastics were very cheap on the showroom car I sat in. No felt lining in glove box or in door pockets as would be found in the golf. Inside the tops of the front doors had the same scratchy plastic that you usually find lower down the dashboard. Not special enough even with the leather interior to spend £39,000 which was the ticket price on the example I sat in.
  9. Out of curiosity I asked someone who fitted the clubsport spoiler to his TCR GTI how much he would Charge to fit the clubsport spoiler to an R and he quoted £2500 with parts. Better value then the Akrapovic exhaust maybe. He had his own body shop so assume he would know what he was doing as it’s not a DIY job.
  10. You can’t make a claim Until at least 30 days after you take out the policy.
  11. Looks like two part numbers needed if you want oem and they are not cheap especially if you need 4.

  12. I think it’s clear that until a vaccine is found there will have to be social distancing. This disease is too infectious to allow to spread unchecked. You name it and this little bugger can live on it for days. Life cannot go back to as it was until we have a vaccine.
  13. Thanks for the update all useful things to know.
  14. Surely the silver grommet can be reused. ? If anyone takes their old plates off comment If the grommets remain in one piece. Do the grommets come off with the plate or stay attached to the calliper.
