    My Polo 16V

    My Polo 16V

    So we realised we cant survive on one vehicle so the search was on to find another car to join the Audi. Of course being me it had to come from the VAG stable and so I found this a 1999 Polo 1.4 16V which seem quite rare around here. Its got 58,000mls with 4 virtually new tyres a 12mth ticket...

    Reluctant to rev 2.0TDi

    The indy that normally services my car seems doubtful of turbo problems given its mileage of 67,000mls (sorry should have mentioned that). He thinks it could be a great many other things but is doubtful the turbo is at fault. I drove it all day yesterday with a long drive out to look at an old...

    Reluctant to rev 2.0TDi

    Afternoon all re 2004 A3 2.0TDi 8P2 Just wanted your opinions on this. I was accelerating with the rev counter at just over 3k when it felt like it didnt want to rev further. It continued to drive ok but seemed to slowly but reluctantly rev. I pulled over switched off then a few seconds later...

    Death to the A3 :(

    I was told a story by a very reliable source. A customers car was in for a service at the main dealer in this case it was VW but the dealer in question had the franchise for Audi too. Anyway the technician was seen to throw the brand new service parts into a skip as in his opinion they didnt...

    S3 gone , now in an R36!

    Ive seen these beasties in estate form but not seen one in saloon form. I think the seats are alcantara stylee so just look like that when you climb in and out due to suede leather effect. I used to have them in a Volvo S70R and they did this.

    Dirty B***H!!

    I also live out in the country and could not believe the state of the roads when out driving this afternoon. I prefer a clean car but its probably just me but sometimes a dirty car looks superb and the OP`s looks kinda cool.

    Tyre pressures for comfort

    No mine states 30 & 29 for lighter loads at most the car has 2-3 people travelling in it with little or no luggage. I think the pressures for heavier loads are similar to those you have quoted.

    Tyre pressures for comfort

    Thanks all Ive dropped the fronts to 28 and the rears to 27 from the recommended 30 & 29 which seems a nice compromise.

    Tyre pressures for comfort

    Morning all I checked the pressures this morning on my 8P2 2.0 TDI and the fronts were about 25psi and 24psi on the rears. I checked the fuel flap and increased the fronts to 30 and the rears to 29. The ride is a good bit firmer now but to be honest I preferred the ride with the pressures as...
