    my 1.9 tdi quattro passed 4Th mot!

    cant belive it my 7 year old 97k 1,9 130 quattro has just passed its 4th mot with not even an advisory! this car to date has cost me a total of £12 in 5 years of ownership on an engine temp sensor! expensive to buy but worth it in the long run! my 2,5 tdi avant also pased with 86k on with no advisorys also this week but i dont know about its previous tests as ive only owend it for a year! but im still loving it!

    lol good to have a blast every now and again, but you gotta be doing something right, £12 plus servicing in 5 years is great. your right about build quality, but you gotta have a bit of luck as well

    Thats easily sorted, slide the seat forward so the steering wheel is tight against your chest.

    Mine failed Headlight aim. The thingy you wind are broken and my left headlight is pointing up/left. Damn.
    Could be worse I suppose, bit of a bummer as I'm taking loads of kids on a school trip till Friday so can't get it retested till then!
