    Advice for potential newby

    I bought a 2017 model around a month ago. I'd say you shouldn't have too much to worry about with a 66 plate. Only thing I would check is to make sure that your gearbox oil has been changed at 35K miles (assuming yours is a DSG)

    parts suppliers for suspension refresh

    Creaks when turning/going over bumps. The VW specialist I go to said I had some rubber cracking in my upper and lower joints, not terrible, but it's horrible driving around with the creaking.

    hey guys, So I've had my 2.5tdi B6 Quattro Avant myr 2004, for just under a year now. In that time, I've always thought the ride height at the rear was a little low. So, I've had a look underneath, and the rear springs look in good condition, so have probably sagged. Now I know I could go to...
