I just get directed to http://volkswagen.msk.ru/error.php

and when i right click and save as, it says the file is damaged and doesn't open. This is true for all engine pdfs.

What happens when you go to the home page http://volkswagen.msk.ru/ ????


and when i right click and save as, it says the file is damaged and doesn't open. This is true for all engine pdfs.

I'm downloading them again now, and they are all comming down my sloooooowwww dial-up pipe as I type, and they all open OK!

Try downloading (right click > save target as) any of the English docs from the above Rusky homepage!

What browser are you using?  My similar effort on the Mk3 board also gave the same probs - until someone owned up to using FirePox.  They switched to IE, and all was perfik!  Pop over to the Mk3 thread, and look at my other suggestions!

Good ole' FirePox  - always over-selling, yet under-delivering!  :sick:  :grin:

Rusky - Russian.  Download too much, and the Rusky Mafia will be after ya - watch out for pointy umbrellas  :evil:  :evil:  :evil:  :evil:

Ahhh, but this is a Golfy forum.  I could post them, but then I'd have to shoot you!  :laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:

Are you not a member of any other sites, such as http://www.uk-polos.net/?  I'm not with the Polo forum, but you will find me on others!

Bumped to show new additions.


Hey, MODERATORS or ADMINS, any chance of getting this thread (and my other in the Mk3) made a STICKY?  Then my hard work won't have a chance to be lost into the bowels of the forum.  :wink:
