Yea tis a nice motor! I'm surprised I like it as its soft and spongy, nothing like the Golf or even the Pug before it!
As for keeping it shiny well its a daily so after it had its first clean & polish last Satdee I dont expect it will get another for some time!


Aint got the time for Farmville these days!  :wink: :grin:

How much? I've seen these kicking about for £600-£1k but not sure how well they've been looked after...  :undecided:

But for the purest engine experience, displacement has no replacement. All other methods are simply attempts to artificially recreate the benefits of displacement.

You know I said I wasnt going to do anything...........

Well I bought some interior woodtrim.
And getting a 4 spoke wheel.
Have to get some new headlights! The standard ones are poor!
So trying to get some projector types and if they aint any better will go for a HID set. Just shows how good the Hella twins are! (on golf)
Also got a leather interior in my sights on ebay!

Plus Billy now seems to want his remapped, after fitting some 18's the same as my Gold wheels! :rolleyes:
So may do a joint thing with him up at Hinkley! :wink:

Where did you get the wood trim Len? Im trying to replace the wood trim in my audi with black but can't find any anywhere. I know it might be different but thought you may have purchased from a parts site that stock other cars too? :)

Got it off a guy on UK Passats mate, so sorry dont know of any sources. S/H and paid £25
Looks like it aint been fitted at all and came it seperate jiffy bags so maybe not all from same place.

I can ask him where he got it but he's out of country for a while now so will be a while before he answers.
