    2.5 TDI confusion and availability

    oh right thanks. So you'd think then that those versions would've gone for alot more than £2500 considering I'm seeing standard models for more than that and with more miles too. I want a V6 for sure, can get a great sound from them that sounds totally petrol I believe.

I'm sure a certain model comes standard like this but finding which one seems impossible. There were two red...

    New calipers, brake pedal to floor

    So I've already done a forum search, not really gotten anything concrete from it. Had discs and pads changed all round on my 2000 APY with just ONE rear caliper requiring replacement. It was the nearside, got replaced, brakes all good, pedal in exact same spot as before they got done. However...

    **RESOLVED**Received Relentless downpipe with a shipping bill from China...WHAT??!?!

    lol what is sorted??? Saying Relentless are US based and that "WE ARE THEIR UK DISTRIBUTOR" does NOT imply they simply place an order to ship direct from USA to you!! But the point is anyway, even if that WAS made the clear (which it wasn't) , the whole point I'm making is I wasn't made aware of...

    **RESOLVED**Received Relentless downpipe with a shipping bill from China...WHAT??!?!

    Thought u meant how did I pay the bill. I paid through paypal and why am I going to ask if there's any further costs when it is STRONGLY implied that shipping is from within the UK?? After all that is how "distribution" works no?

    **RESOLVED**Received Relentless downpipe with a shipping bill from China...WHAT??!?!

    So what if it is? The fact I wasn't made aware beforehand there would be this bill is rather shoddy buisness ethic...

    **RESOLVED**Received Relentless downpipe with a shipping bill from China...WHAT??!?!

    I mean correct me if I'm wrong here, I'm a huge noob with this type of stuff, don't wanna give anyone a bad name but I pm'd the guy and he's ignored it when he could've explained the situation, and I ain't paying the shipping bill that came with it.
