  1. I wouldn't touch AF with a barge poll after the way they treated me when I changed from a remapped SLK to a standard R, but for the second year running their renewal prices have beaten any other quote on the Mrs Focus
  2. Mine was sticking and I found this article https://www.stuartdalby.co.uk/vwgolfmk7/sticking-fuel-filler-cover/index.php It cured mine

    Maybe I don't drive my car hard enough but I have had no problems at all with the P Zero's on my car in any weather
  4. I bought mine through Sytner Stafford and even they hadn't seen it when I paid the deposit It had been taken in as part ex against a BMW in Nottingham, bought in to stock by Sytner in leeds and was prepped by them before being transported to Stafford where they carried out their own PDI The first time I saw it was the day I collected it . The car was as expected and had more extras than had been listed which was a bonus . I had no problems at all
  5. I was told that I had to have it done at my local depot , couldn't be done at home . There were a few golfs there at the same time as me and some had travelled quite a distance But I have heard of people having theirs done at home/work so I think it depends on the local depot
  6. So you will need a new clutch next week then 🤣
  7. After having the oil sat in the garage for 4 months I finally got round to doing mine today The oil was very dirty but the filter only had a small amount of crud on it , certainly nowhere near blocked 16 plate with 19K on the clock Obviously neither myself or the previous owner have thrashed it hard enough to work the Haldex too hard
  8. Maxxis mainly specialise in bike tyres and do a lot of sponsorship
  9. Must get off my bum and do mine . Only had the oil for 2 months
  10. Black mk2 escort estate ( military vehicle) I was at the army apprentice college, borrowed the padre's staff car for the test and one of the platoon sergeants took me for the test . Should have failed but I knew what I had done wrong so he let me off
  11. When I bought my car I was told by the salesman that the previous owner had a service plan but it was not transferable Then just before my next service was due I got a card off VW to tell me when it was due and that it was covered by a service plan The plan must automatically transfer to the new owner as I did nothing
  12. I may be wrong but I thought Prets would not have a laquer coating as they are powder coated not painted
  13. Saw a nice AMG GT R the other day while I was having a new windscreen fitted It was doing doughnuts outside autoglass and then parked up outside a detailing place where the driver kept revving it loudly for the crowd watching What I don't know is if it belonged to the driver or was a customers car waiting to be detailed being abused for their amusement , I really hope it was the owner
  14. Maybe the adhesive/sealant dries quicker now , they say 30 minutes drying time before driving , I know they used to tape them up for a couple of hours after fitting before you could drive They also say not to wash the car for 24 hours, I don't know whether rain affects it less than washing One really strange thing is that the other R driver there new nothing about the car . He thought it was normally aspirated and only 1.8 although he said he bought it because it had a bit of poke. He said he had never noticed the turbo kick in when driving so assumed it didn't have one I found this really odd as he had bought it new so must have been told about it
  15. No reason at all to have it done at a depot other than the company are trying to do less at the roadside apparently There were 4 golfs there including another R which had traveled from Shrewsbury to stoke to have it done and had been told if he wanted it doing at home he would have to wait until May 17th Everyone there had been given the same 10am appointment so some had to wait hours, I was lucky and got done 2nd so was only there 2 hours. Totally dis-organised system really
