    R32 Golf Anyone?

    My cousin is selling this Golf R32 - not our usual fare I know, but it is pretty mint, one owner with a thick history file, so I thought it might be interesting for someone on here. It makes a pretty good noise too!

    German cars are ****

    Having spent the last couple of days stripping and reassembling my fathers Audi A4 2.0 TDI due to it having a complete failure of the oil pump drive, I can safely say they are designed by sadists and can only be worked on by people who can share gloves with Donald Trump. Oh and a word of...

    MOB - My Story

    I thought I would kick this off with my collection of pictures. A thoroughly brilliant trip with stunning scenery and great friends. Roll on the next one, whatever that will be. The first set is the ferry, through Lyon and down to Lauzet.

    Becker Infotainment making a popping noise

    Hi all, I was woken last night by a strange noise in my house. A first I thought I was being burgled by Snap Crackle and Pop but it turned out the stereo in the car was turning itself on and off every six seconds with a popping noise through the speakers. Phoning around it seems that it is...

    A good day to diode

    My car has been in to Christian Lewis for a service and a few other bits including a diagnosis on an intermittent no MSP and ABS light problem. I was worried it was a wheel bearing / sensor, but apparently these are all fine on the SD3. Communication with the ABS module is a bit iffy apparently...

    Tyres and alignment

    Just had new tyres fitted and full alignment and corner weighting at Northampton Motorsport using their hunter machine (£210 inc VAT for 2.5 hours - bargain) The alignment has made a big difference but what shocked me was the start of the Pirelli tyres when they came off. The inside shoulder...

    Hi all, After doing battle on Brunty yesterday and getting a couple of minor chips, it is time to sort out some nero carbonio touch up paint. Does anyone have any recommendations as to where I should get some? I'm loathed to get rinsed by Maserati, who I am sure will buy it for a fiver and...

    New to the GS club....

    I have been reading the forum for a few months and last week picked up my new (to me) 2005 GS, which I am falling totally in love with. I can't ever imagine getting bored of the noise as it lunges for the redline. Having owned 4 Alfas (including a 156 Selespeed for my sins) I am braced for...
