Big nail in n/s front tyre  :angry:  new one needed - on order. 

Second new tyre in 3 months on that wheel - begining to think it's jinxed!  Got the lovely space saver spare on till tommorow  :sick:

Cant it be repaired mate?

No such luck  :sad:  The actual nail damage could have been repaired, BUT, as it was driven on a bit (slow puncture, only evident this morning), there was further damage.  It ain't gonna be cheap!  Must spec a tyre pressure monitor on next car  :laugh:   

Still, only had 2 punctures in nearly 20 years driving so can't really complain.
you can retro fit the button on early car. Or just turn it on with vagcom and reset it with vagcom if it triggers.
Plenty of info on this on google

Nice one. Your first proper contribution has to be lots of pictures. Even tho' we all know what GTI's look like, we all like pictures.

Booked it in on Wednesday for a major service, brake fluid change and a dsg oil change, when I came to pick it up it had only been given a minor service, so had a big kick off in the showroom as the service guy called me a liar at which point I was going to rip his head off so I had to leave before I did something stupid!
Rang service manager when I got home explained what had gone on and he apologised and got the car picked up today to complete the servicing!
Had nothing but issues with Vw and will never buy another one as the customer service is terrible! Asked them to have a look at the diverter valve while it was still under warranty and the service guy said the technicians had never heard of a diverter valve, this is what we are up against total incompetent idiots!
