Reckon a FSH makes much difference to the re-sell cost of a mk4 given their age now?

It will but not much.
I keep all the receipts and noted down when and what was changed so effectively a FSH but without paying £50 an hour labour

Mine had a pretty much full VWSH up until last year, and then I started doing it myself.  Have got the receipts too  :smiley:
