    Sorry bit late doing this

    Hi everyone.

    I'm the "proud" owner of a VW Golf Estate, 2010 Diesel 1.6 TDi BM.

    It's been somewhat of a lemon, needing a new turbo within 1 year of purchase, and various other expensive jobs, but it carries a huge amount, and although the MPG is NOTHING like advertised on a motorway, I can get 55mpg on local trips so I'm reasonably happy and determined to run it until it rusts.

    One bonus has been I've gone from knowing next to nothing about cars to knowing how to do a full service, change a turbo, brakes and now shocks! Still scares me a little every time I crack open the toolbox, wondering if I'm going to break anything expensive this time

    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.
