Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Yeah, I think they have to fit so much tech in these days and crash protection they seem to scale it up in a CAD package and hit print.

Looks pretty good in the red though.

Mine has sailed through another MOT today. 2 issues though, 1 it sounds like something is rubbing at low speed from the N/S/R to so need to get that looked at before I do any miles. 2 I've only done 1500 miles between MOT tests

I'm going to the Spa in it in May, so that'll pop a chunk of miles on it in one go
