I too have the 8P 2.0TDi, I get a little more than 500 on a full tank driving on A & B roads and town driving (not city).
Though when I only fill to a half tank - I don't know if it's psychological or weightsaving - but I get about 300miles from the half tank to the 50mi warning/first red...
Personally I think its even more important after 100k (as was my car when i bought it (motorway monkey)) as it shows that the car is still getting treated as it should for such a well used bit of kit, and not forgotten about and more prone to break/leak/cease.
Just wondering, instead of getting any garage to do it of servicing the car myself.
Though the though has crossed my mind of service history, do you sign off the book yourself or do you leave it as if it hasn't been serviced?
I don't think I'll be selling this car on, I'll either run it...
Should be able to get a half decent Corsa B for that. Even if something breaks there are thousands of them so spares are easily sought and are really cheap. the 1.0 L engine is a hunk of junk though and they break often.. go for the 1.2 if you can.
I noticed this while doing a quick walkaround the car before setting off... I'm pretty sure it was the snow..
It's my N/S/R shock, it seems to be missing the protective sleeve from the arm.
Can I cope with this until after Xmas when I'll have money to get a new shock if needed?
It is and has been for a long time a requirement for a clear and clean windscreen.
However this is for the snow of the roof that could potentially cover it.
I agree about he lorries.. it's just rediculous!
I've heard from a reliable source that as from tomorrow, police will be stopping anyone with snow on their roofs. a £60 fixed on teh spot fine and 3 points.
I've said this for years, as you warm the car up inside, you cause the snow to melt from the bottom up.
As you drive along that snow...
tried this today, no movement.
If i shift slowly (i.e take 2secs to move up/down a gear) then its fine, but anything faster than that it feels like its all gone sharp in there and its catching on corners or something..
it wasnt like this before.
any thing i can do to reduce?
I've had my A3 for just little over a week, and I find that the quality and smoothness of shifting the stick into gear has got a bit "clunky" over this short period.
What can cause this?
Does it make a difference if I leave the car in gear with the handbrake taking the majority of the...
is it worth it for the first few months after purchasing a new car?
I'm being offered about £120 p/m for the car by the dealer after the first month which is about twice as much as warranty direct are offering..
so is it worth it for what.. 6months after purchase?
I mean its a lot...
