  1. Why? It’s got a fault that will get fixed under warranty, could have happened to any car at any time. You’ll end up with new, genuine parts fitted by VW technicians, and it’ll likely never fail again. You’ve got a courtesy car that’s pretty equivalent to get you around, and the garage seem to have been wholly reasonable thus far.
  2. Which WP wax was it? This is an old photo - my collection has grown a fair bit since then!
  3. I wasn’t overly keen on the tartan prior to owning my GTI, definitely miss it now though! The R interior is so bland in comparison.
  4. I’d be pushing for a significant discount, or a re-order with a similar courtesy car for 25 weeks.

    That’d buy a 6 bed with a pool up here! [emoji23]
  6. Totally agree re Dynaudio - wish I had the option on my R, particularly having had it on my GTI.
  7. Welcome! Relatively new R owner here too. [emoji2]
  8. The 312 is usually on eBay at £40-50 (new). Though to be honest, Halfords charging £30 inc the hard wiring kit isn’t bad. It’s an easy DIY job though.
  9. Looks great, and coming along nicely!
  10. Wheel back, and fitted on the car. It’s not perfect, refurbs never are in my experience, but it’s passable and a hell of a lot better than it was. Also a lot better than my previous experience with diamond cut refurbs, so hopefully this one is a bit longer lasting!
  11. About 20 miles each way for me too, 50% country roads, 40% A1 on a quiet stretch so it’s not actually too bad.
  12. Welcome! Great looking R you have there [emoji4]
  13. You want to complain to someone who works in fleet ideally as well, if you have a few it should carry some weight. I agree re 60k though.
  14. I can’t imagine VW being much more for 1l to be honest! ECP’s pricing on VW504.00/507.00 is crazy.
