    Worth getting some of the plastic clips too as invariably one or two will break. Undo the Philips screw near the door hinges, then pull the door strip horizontally towards the rear of the car, keep...

    Only time I can remember is when the oil pressure light came on, followed by the 3 audible beeps. I was hauling a boat at the time, and the light and alarm were intermittent. Checked the oil level...

    Nice. I like the colour! Regards rear diff - there's no specific time for an oil change, but at 190k its worth doing in my opinion. Drive it to increase the viscosity of the oil (if it's original...

    Remove the brake carrier, caliper and disc and secure on wire support or bungee cord. You just need to undo driveshaft splined bolts and hub nut, not the hub itself.

    I wouldn't be bothered about considering just sub 100k cars. These cars are now 8+ years old, so the key thing will be servicing and history. Doesn't matter if its been to a main dealer or an...

    Not so good Paul. There's always something, and it's never at a convenient time. I know what you mean about the V6 when it's running sweet, plus considering the time, money and effort you put into...

    My 2.5TDI quattro avant sport was registered in late July 2001 (Y plate). Looking good for its age, and with 152k on the clock. Just passed its MOT. :yes:

    The 1Z TDI (90bhp) is a well respected engine. That workhorse will run forever with regular oil changes. Got mine to 175k... And it was still mint.

    The B6 1.9TDI is definitely fixed 4 wheel drive quattro system. Other VAG cars such as the Golf 4Motion and Passat 4Motion are haldex part-time 4WD. Under normal conditions 90% power goes to front,...

    Don't get me started. The judicial system needs to deal with these offenders harshly. It's bad enough stealing the car, but an armed robbery with an axe is horrendous. The tariff for this crime...
