    So i only had this car for a month and it stopped on the wife, on inspection the only thing apparently wrong is the cam chain tensioner guide has lunched its self and caused the timing to skip, no bent valves or scored bores etc.

    I fitted a guarnteed engine from local scrappies with has shagged big ends so its gettin refunded the morra and the car is now gettin scrapped.

    Annoyingly i bought -

    gen oil temp sensor
    gen Water temp sensor
    gen thermo
    gen VAG maya yellow paint and lac, un-opened!
    rad is minted

    new rear discs and pads all round and front discs aren't too shabby, still loads of wear

    pretty new rear calipers

    pretty new steerting rack

    car drove fine no rattles etc before this problem, turbo was fitted to scrappie lump and still pulled like a train!!

    Interior is in excellent condition regardless of it age, would be a shame just to bin it.

    If anyones interested in any specific parts etc i'll send photos.

    oh box clutch and flywheel are almost new and are goin into my mk2 golf aswell as pedal box shifter/cables etc
