    Brakes Needed

    I think I will...How do I go about sourcing OEM brakes online? Looked about and I cant seem to find anything. I have looked at Online Car Parts and they are quoting silly prices like £12 a disc!! I dont want anything too basic, just something that is as good as OEM. Thanks

    TDI Tuning Box - Anyone Used it?

    Might want to check out Racechip. They offer a 2 year powertrain warranty, but only covers up to £4000. Also read this from their FAQ's. We generally recommend removing the RaceChip module before servicing so as to allow the garage to perform work on a standard series vehicle. We also wish to...

    Brakes Needed

    Hi All, My brakes and pads both need replacing sadly on the fronts. What sort of brands and prices should I use and expect? Should I stick to OEM? I plan to change the car early 2018, so I dont need an upgrade as such. Thanks

    Low power tuning options

    I am interested in a tuning box solution and Yes id prefer to not change the clutch seeing as I am on a PCP agreement and have no plans to keep the car any longer than 3/4 years. Heard many sides of this issue, some people believe they cannot from a systemic point of view be found, but other...

    Leasing question

    Very interesting, his name is Ben too!! Think I may sort out the mortgage first and then change. The mortgage will be very very low, so I'd be shocked if they refused in anyway, but it is best not to risk. Thank you all

    Leasing question

    Hi all, Thank you very much for your comments. What I am actually referring to you is the loan amount that is effectively under your name, which shows on your credit checks and what not. With PCP the whole value of the car is effectively a debt to me. I am wondering for example if I leased (PCH)...

    Leasing question

    Sorry I should have explained better. I am aware during the PCP agreement you don't own the car, but you have the option to, but with leasing you dont. I was wondering when doing Personal contract hire (leasing) whether the loan amount effectly is the whole car value or the value of the...

    Lease Advice- S3

    Interesting with the link however no mention on how many miles. :frown: Think you got them deals at a good time! Seems Brexit has affected lease prices. Am I right to believe leasing is usually cheaper than PCP? I don't plan to own the car longer than 3 years so hire purchase isn't really an...

    Exhaust Valve Mod

    I have disconnected the connection for the valve, it's a simple clip. No warning lights on the car, however I don't know whether this will bite me in the backside when it comes to returning to the dealer?
