    This car has been the victim of a poor remap and a bit of rather bad luck. Still starts on the button but the result is an engine firing on 5 out of 6 cylinders, chuffing out the oil filler cap and clouds of smoke out the back. AFB engine with 190K on the clock. Lots of fun to fix for one of you but not for me.

    The album of lovely pictures I had proudly posted on another forum can be viewed here. Immaculate inside and out...

    Car didn't go wrong before this here eejit had already spent over a grand on a vehicle that cost 3K less than a year ago. I really did think it would last me for many many years and spent the money accordingly. All receipts available. Car has FSH, MOT and road tax until April 2010. All the following items listed as 'New' are less than 800mls old, some even younger.

    Parts you might find of interest:
    'New' Longlife freeflow stainless cat-back exhaust system hand crafted by FastFit Basingstoke
    'New' K&N 57i induction kit fitted:

    Mint beautiful Borbet alloys with full set of 'new' tyres:

    'New' EGR valve
    'New' N70 EGR vacuum valve
    'New' fuel filter
    New BIG intercooler input and output air hoses (£150 from Audi Basingstoke)
    'New' Cyberspares deep-pile super-deluxe black with blue piping custom floormat set:

    'New' (200mls old) Thule roof bars

    The whole car needs picking up as I won't get away with it being dismantled in the pub car park where it is (won't make me very popular).

    Make me an offer around £900 and please take this most miserable experience of my life far, far away.

    That £900 is something you are allowed to disagree with ;-)

    A few quick questions...

    Do you happen to have the plastic latch that keeps the warning triangle panel closed on the boot lid? Mine's is snapped!

    Also, do you have a couple of spare bulbs for the boot courtesy lights and the driver's map light?

    I'd also potentially be interested in the thule bars.

    lastly, at my last service the garage said that i had a "smokey" EGR valve - what does this mean, and would your EGR valve be a suitable replacement (mine's is the 1.9tdi)?

    Thanks!
