    Here is a strange one, just in the process of changing my camshaft tensioner/adjuster and chain, noticed that the camshaft sprockets are worn back and are starting to look like ninja stars!! Now it's hard to see from the photos but some teeth are wider than others and all have little burrs on them.
    some of you more experienced 1.8t user may have seen this before,let me know what you think, or are my very unlucky.
    Of course I've replacement camshafts ordered and should be running again by this evening.
    thanks sean
