I don't think I'll be taking my car to a main VW dealer for services in future.
I'd rather trust my car to an independent specialist like Awesome GTI, who luckily for me, are not far too away :smiley:

tbh I usually take my car to Awesome GTI. So having spoke with the dealership they've dropped the price to £349, they never did say why they'd quoted me £399 initially. There always seems to be an issue whenever I take my car into VW, their customer service is absolutely piss poor. Maybe it's just me, I don't know.

Finally got around to washing it.
Nearly three years into ownership and I still haven't come across a car I'd rather have, given a sensible budget ( other than a clubsport  :laugh: )

Very smart looking :smiley:. And I feel the same way too although I'd happily add an R to the list.

I don't think I could afford the petrol for an R :grin:

Just drive 10% fewer miles, that should cover it!

If I did any fewer miles, I'd never leave the driveway :embarrassed:
