Might book a demo!!

But £32k for a used GTi...?? Is it me or is that a lot??

that seems a lot to me for a 2nd hand car. my 67 gti pp was quoted at 23.5k on we buy any car 2k miles and most extras..(granted they'd sell for more but still) lol

Dropped it off for 3rd service (inc brake fluid); air con service and MOT. Haldex service soon at specialist place.
 
In prep: Pedal box switched off (boo!), headlight washers etc temp re-enabled with obdeleven. Do not wash signs in place.  Work sheet already pre-scrawled with “DO NOT WASH” as Gemma the service lady knows me well.
 
Lets hope they don’t use it as a demo!  :shocked:  :grin:


I hope the MOT tester had sunglassss on!  :cool:

That's a very generous car park at your dealers. Mine has about half a dozen spaces which oddly enough, are generally taken :angry: And being positioned next to a roundabout and a main road there's no street parking...

It is a sizeable car park and right adjacent to where they clean the cars. :shocked:  That’s the bit of the premises my car never goes!   :grin:

MOT already???

Yep!  3 years on 30th Sept!  Time flies when you have a great car!

Unfortunately not, and now he’s in the clinic having his retinas reattached.  :grin:

Anyway, all serviced and MOT’d and no problems. 



Pedal box switched back on the second I got in the car. Ahhh.   Tonight obdeleven back out to code out the headlight washers again.

Did you only reset the headlamp washers Rebecca before taking it in or did you do all the OBD tweaks?

I only reset the headlight washers, and re-enabled the Stop/Start (just in case). All other obdeleven adaptations I left as they were.  I left the pedal box installed, just switched it off.

Mine took me for a great day out in Dover today. Not an exciting drive, M25/M2, but it really shows why this car is so good as it was very refined and comfortable. Over 200 miles completed and no fatigue, just relaxed :smiley: I also love the way that it will pull out for a quick overtake with no gear change, plenty of torque available. Brilliant :smiley:
