Took my car in for a 2nd opinion on Saturday and they say that both the ARB's and the Bump Stops would not be MOT Failures and that instead of a total cost of £381 VW quoted, they have quoted me £179 (only 1 hours labour for each item, not 2 like VW quoted me). I'm going to get the work done to th...

Extended warrenty?

Has anyone managed to get an extended warrenty out of interest? I know that in January 05 the FSA were looking into the extended warrenty which VW sold, and that last I heard you still couldnt get one. Mine ran out March/April time, and was told to put my name on a list and I would be called when it...

The manager blokey said that they've had a bulletin about it that its a common problem and to replace them straight away. I believe this bulletin was sent out at least a year ago, so I would of thought you would be able to claim something, as its gone in numerous times but nothing was done about it...

Not sure how you do multiple quotes but anyway : Gary : "If you do get the main dealer to do the repairs ask if they will contribute as you previously suspected a problem, and the fact your a very good customer! If they won't budge call VW customer service and explain the situation, you won't get if...

Are the VRS's really as good as they seem?

My finance on my current car finishes later this year and is starting to cost me quite a lot of money to have things repaired or replaced. I was going to go for the new Polo, but have had a look around other dealers (Seat and Skoda in particular) and have to say I rather like the look of the VRS. Ou...

To change a dipped light

Is it true that if your dipped light bulb goes, that you have to take it to a garage to change it??? It says it in the manual, but cant believe that they make cars these days which require you to take it to a garage to have a new bulb put in ... I wonder if a copper had pulled you over for a blown d...

Warrenty - has VW given anyone a warrenty yet?

My warrenty ran out in the middle of April, but a month prior had rang VW warrenty up to ask how much it'd cost to renew as it was something that I could afford to do, but was told that since January 2005 the FSA had been looking at VW's warrenty prices, and that they were not finalised, so had to r...

Anyway, the VW garage also said that one of my all...
