    2009 gt tdi 2.0 dsg thinking of buying

    hi all, thinking of buying the above with 75k miles, anything I should check in service history or be careful of when owning? All comments much appreciated.

    Check that the DSG has been serviced at the correct interval. I think it's about every 40k. It should have had a timing belt change at some point. Try to see if it's had the diesel emission fix. It would have been a software fix so it's possible to get it reversed if you don't want it (not from a dealership though)

    Be aware that life is going to get very difficult for owners of non EU6 diesel engined cars very soon, the one you are looking at may only be EU4+. PM me the reg and I can tell you.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
