Re: Are You Using Oil?

Haven't been on here for over a year and I can't believe you guys are still having this problem also can't believe this is still an issue more than two years after the problems first started and I started this post! I really feel for you guys. Don't want to sound smug but getting shot of mine was th...

Re: Using Oil!

Update on new engine I had under warranty. Had the low oil light come on after just 1200 miles. :roll: Dealer put more oil in and I have to monitor it. VW UK seem not to be happy with this on my behalf and want me to keep them updated, which I certainly intend to do. Thumbs up to VW customer care w...

Re: Golf MK6 GTI

Looks awesome but doesn't look any different to a standard GTI. I'd have to go for the reddy colour exclusive to the edition 35 :) Std GTI http://i665.photobucket.com/albums/vv17/Edi30/volkswagen_golf_gti_mk6_hatchback_3_dr_2_0_tsi_gti_210_ps_dsg_93382211224023208.jpg ED35 http://i665.photobucket.c...

Yes my MK6 has done an average of 35 over the past 2 years. The consumption varies from 25-42 on the trips I do, depending on distance. I had a MK5 ED30 before this and the average was 32 over three years.

Re: Using Oil!

Be warned the car exchange and refund process isn't as you would think. I have a new car on the way but for me to get this I have to pay 15 p per mile over 3000 miles, with my car now having done 16000 miles I am looking at around a 2000 bill. And worst of all after speaking to trading standards th...

Re: Auto windows up & down via key fob.

VAG cars have had this feature for years. My Golf GTI MKII had auto window open and close when turning the key in the door locks (before key fobs where common place). This was on a 91 model when I owned it back in 94 (showing my age now). This is a great feature in the summer as you can open all the...

Re: Using Oil!

There seems to be no consistency. Why do the ring upgrades work for some and not for others? Certainly not worked in my case. Answers on a postcard. :) Yes - its bizarre John, but I am not claiming mine is fixed just yet, it's just the omens look good but I won't be convinced until we reach about 2...

I can recommend Osram Nightbreakers 90% brighter than std halogen and they last longer too.

Re: Using Oil!

I'm starting to get hacked off now over this oil consumption on my GTI. Garage 1 (Witherspoons, Sighthill in Edinburgh) - They agreed to do a consumption test after 5000 miles after much arguing on my part. Go along today to get them to top it up and start the test only to find they are now out of ...
