    1.9TDi 100BHP Experience?

    A friend used 'insurethebox' for a year which dropped his 2.5 K cheapest insurance qoute to around £700. Worth a try for a few K saving. You do get a box installed in your car to monitor how you drive. Drive carefully and you are the winner.

    Like mentioned before I've got NS mount replaced with B5 solid 2 years ago. Driver's side is solid anyway. Since then had no issues at all. I can still see on VSDC the error code as nothing is connected but engine does not vibrate.

    Quick key question

    If you pressed the key 'open' button when doing ignition you have re-sync it with the car. You have probably lost the sync originaly since your battery it playing loose inside the key itself. Move the connectors where the batttery is so it keeps it very tight in.

    Headlight problem

    Hi... That looks same as mine. You need to remove the light out - 4 bolts. Once out open the back of light in question then check the 6 bulbs placement. You just need to push them back in place with screwdriver.
