I am in West Cornwall so if anybody knows anyone that would take this on please let me know. It drives ok but is down on power. The auto gearbox is also very reluctant to change up on any incline and can sit in 2nd at 3500 rpm unless I go to manual to change. I am guessing this is because it on down on torque but if there is also a potential problem with the gearbox please let me know! Cheers.
    Bring it to me and i'll do them for you much cheaper than the garage quoted you ! I will use a full Kolbenshmidt camshaft kit, genuine lifters/rockers and trust pads and 2x Victor Reinz camshaft seals. Drop me a pm if you need more info ! Here's one i just finished for a forum member :

    -Golf mk 5/audi a3 1.6 FSI fuel pump, brand new genuine part boxed + seals
    -audi a3 (1998 to 2003) genuine clutch slave cylinder to fit 1.6 engines BRAND NEW
    -Rear bush press tool to fit new rear axle bushes on Golf Mk3/4, Audi a3/S3, Seat Leon/Toledo, Skoda Octavia mk 1/2 used once

    hi mal the box issue could be just due to the oil needing changed. at about £150 per change it may have never been done and is like tar inside. if you have no knocking when jurking the accelerator or no prdns flashing on the dash the box seems good just needs a service. i had mine done about a year ago, i had no symptoms but the car had a replacement box that was on 47k so was serviced to prevent a 3 box being needed!

    **on your cam issue**

    a good mechanic will fit any parts you supply so if they wont dont go near them.
    also ask for your old parts back to be sure they have been fitted!
    below is the list I got from autosmotorcraft in Germany contact Michael Laski he is very good to deal with, anything you dont want he'll adjust the price but you'd want another thermostat in anyway and normal service parts. (he did not supply oil or antifreeze to me at the time but he may do now) if the belts only have 3k then not so bad..but what about the rollers ect where they replaced at that time also? if not i'd be inclined to do the whole lot and drive the car for another 100k without worry. cost £1200 last year for parts. then I had oil 6ltrs 5w-30 (£70-80) and G12 antifreze 5-6 ltrs(about £25-30) and labour ontop of that. so its really up to you if you want a big expense. if you love the car and trust the mechanic go for it!
