    I don't know anywhere mate, but when you find somewhere let me know, I'm not too far from you and will need mine doing soon.

    I got mine done at a local garage. It was still £340!! There is a VW Specialist in Bradford. If you need the number give me a shout - I'll dig his card out which has got stuck under my handbrake.

    got mine done at awesome with new water pump for 295. For the sake a 40min drive its worth it. Chris Umpleby and IVC are local, but neither is held in high regard by local enthusiasts.

    cheers mate, just asked them for a quote but 295 sounds good.

    do they do the waterpump with the metal blades?

    I'd stay away from the water pump with the metal blades and just go for the later replacement pump with the stronger plastic blades. There was a guy on here who mentioned seeing many 1.8T's strip teeth off the belt because the metal blades were catching the block or something?

    I would have thought IVC too, but I didn't realise they weren't held in high regard.
