    well after 3 months of ownership ill start this off, only a few though
    1, lazy throttle response in first. ( 2.0 tdi 140 )
    2, whenever ive just cleaned the car ( which is a lot ) the first time i drive it water comes out of the mirror casings and along the side of my beautifilly polished car lol
    3, my local dealer whos after sales service is poor to say the least
    there you go only a couple and yes i know i should run the car round the block to get the water out but ive tried that and it still happens.
    so any body got anymore??

    only issue i have it ive got a sline and the suspension with 18" wheels can be a little harsh at times specially on our well kept roads these days! other than that i cant grumble tho i have mine chipped so cant comment on the throttle response. get it chipped and ull have a smile after

    throttle was lazy on my 140 2.0tdi sline aswell. Easily solved with a remap, best £400 i have spent, yes mirror cases drip water all over the car if you drive after washing, leaf blower can solve that though (dry completely before waxing and driving).
    other than that, no gripes from me, well apart from the chrome around the windows degrading (haha).

    My only real gripe is the cars performance even after a remap but I did come from a 290 bhp astra vxr so they are completely different cars anyway.
