Great new fellas,  :smiley: :smiley: :smiley:

VW Crosshills called, they have started work on my car 3 days early. They have indeed found that my chain was slack and needs replacing.

The better new its not going to cost me a pennie. VW will pay for the part and the warranty company will pay for the labour.

I cant speak highly enough of VW Crosshills, after speaking with Ben on the phone for 15 mins (who has a MK5 GTI) i feel totally at ease with them working on my car and if anyone lives within 50 miles of them i would defo recommend traveling to get great service and peace of mind.

Can finally stop stressing  :rolleyes:

Good news, will be ringing Ben in the morning, as whilst I like the fuel consumption of the polo, I bought a GTI for a reason :grin:

So pleased that you found the experience a positive one, and I know Ben would be pleased to hear it. They keep winning dealership of the year for a reason. :cool:

I had had enough of the Polo VW gave me, nearly 4 weeks in car that felt very disconnected from the road and a soft suspension.
