Aaaaarrrghhh Mr unluckys back yet again, got my S3 back for 1 week then this happens
:sob:Hi all, not been around for a bit so time for an update from Gutted not even had it a month
Well No'1, Got my S3 back couple of weeks ago, after 8 weeks with the S4 (I had that longer than my S3).
Here are the photo's after Sharade repared her. http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o...cture100-1.jpg
As you can see they made a very good job of the repair which included a new wheel, a complete passenger door and rear quater.
Fast forward about two weeks later.:banghead: Splutter splutter cough cough, on my way home the car sounds terrible, after a quick post on here, a few ideas came about it being a Coil pack issue. Saturday morning off to Midland VW for Jody to check it out, Coil pack replaced, still not right so we moved on to check the spark plugs which one was melted so we changed all of them. Still the same which led to my horror as he checked the compression and number 4 cylinder had no compression.
So this week Jody stripped it down and has opened a can of worms, The turbo is damaged and the Manifold is cracked badly in several places.There are also signs of head damage,and he has told me it looks like the cam belt has gone on a previous owner while driving it, doing some damage.
So as you can imagine I'm now devastated, its going to cost me a fortune I'm just really gutted now it seems like I'm jinxed I just want a nice car with no problems for once. But now I have all that to replace plus the compression problem, this is going to cost the earth.
So now I'm back on the bus and train:3sadwalk: feeling miserable.:sign_unfair:
