GF's TT....in a bad way :(
My other half has a 2001 TT Roadster which to be honest...I think is a bit of a pup..rough around the edges etc.
Anyway its been in for a service today and we have had the dreaded phone call with a list of issues....
First one is the big one....
The diff is f*cked...I always knew the car had a whine to it but it seems the diffs the issue and it needs replacing..
Both rear springs are snapped! (Eibach....no shock there then)
Front shocks are both seeping fluid
CV boots split
The garage wont touch the diff job, they say its a huge job and they're not prepared to even quote :(
Rear springs I can do but I'll either need to get 4 x standard springs or 2 x -25mm springs and only change the backs
Front shocks...meh...I suppose I'll have to do that too.
I thinkthe GF wants to part ex it into a dealer ASAP to save doing the work in time for the MOT next month...part of me agrees with her.
So she's now super pissed off and I think my weekends been riuned as I'll be working on her car for most of it if I can get parts.
She got the car just after we got together a couple of years ago but she wouldnt let me come with her to view the car. If she had I'd have told her to walk away....women!!!. The cars been a problem child from the start with lots of little niggles etc...the last being a huge boost leak that I managed to sort but even so...its like the unloved ginger stepchild now.
Anyone know how long the warranty on Eibach springs are?, its not the first set I've heard of that have broken. They were fitted by a previous owner and the invoice is in the service history so I need to check the date on it. Its a biit crap that they've broken.
