    If you're looking for a full vehicle inspection, covering Brakes, Tyres, Steering, Suspension and a Vagcom scan, We charge £66.00

    If it's just a quick fault code read you're looking for, just give me a shout and I'll sort it out FOC for you.

    Hope this helps,
    Regards, AL.

    Sorry to hear that mate :sob: any idea of the cause and amount of damage. Do you know if its standard or modified, maybe a case of it throwing a rod due to power spike. worst case you could think of rebuild and project for more power, hope you dont have to sell it dude.

    I know it doesnt help, but people need to be aware of the extra torque when it is near freezing ambient...

    well just driving normally no boost. and put it in 3rd and bang. Oil set on fire on exhaust had to run in chippy for a fire extingusher.
    Really cant afford to rebuild it the engine in it has only been in a month. Really dont no what to do. Dnt have the space to break it either. And not sure what its worth with it being like it is.

    Ah bad times mate, it would be a shame to let it go, coud you take it somewhere to give you a quote or coud they come out to you if you can't trailer it.

    The oil set on fire from the hole in the block? As Dave said the torque request from cold temperatures aswell as maybe additional loading from using too high a gear. Maybe just plain old mechanical failure. These engines are getting on now and when pushed are showing their age. Shame mate but thats life...
