  1. Golf 7 (type 5G) 2012 - 17
    Hi, new to the forum. I'm looking for advice buying a golf. I found this golf on AT. Great looks, milage, and price seems reasonable. It's CAT N though, and looking up the MOT history it seems like maybe the structural damage has had an effect on how suspension components and tyres wear out? I...
  2. Suspension & Handling
    Hi Just after some advice and I apologise for my total lack of knowledge when it comes to lowering cars. I own a Golf Mk5 GT Sport 170. I have 17" wheels and the tyres I am running are 225/45 17R's. From my understanding the height from factory on these models are 15mm lower than standard...
  3. Maintenance & Service
    Good morning all. I have a 1978 Transporter T2 1776 that is in need of restoration. Quite a few panels need replacing and a bare metal re-spray would also been good for starters. I then have a long list of additional items that i want to change/upgrade, like the interior, brakes, etc A number...
  4. VW Engine and Gearbox
    Hi all, Apologies if there are threads about this, I didn’t see much when I did a quick search. My wife has a 62 plate 1.2 Polo. A trusted mechanic has said the timing chain needs sorting, and that it’s a known issue on these 3 cylinder engines. He said that though he could charge us £800 to...
  5. Golf 2 (type 19/1G) 1983 - 1992
    Hi all, I'm planning to sell my 1989 Mk 2 Golf but I really don't know where to start with putting a price on it! I'm a complete novice when it comes to these cars. I love driving mine but know little about them really. It seems the prices range from a few hundred to thousands, so I'd really...

  7. VW Engine and Gearbox
    Hello all :D I'm after some advice, I have just purchased a '57 Golf Plus 1.9TDI on 66,000 miles (full VWSH, and the belt was last replaced in September 2011 at 35,000 miles. After some research I've read the belt & waterpump need doing every 80,000 miles /or/ every 4 years. So going on that...

    Hi. I am posting on behalf of my father in-law so sorry if this is a little vague. I can answer any of your questions if required :) He has a Volkswagen Sharan 2006 Diesel 1896CC with around 165k miles. When he got the car it was fine however recently there seems to be an issue with the...
  9. Polo 5 - (type 6C) 2014 - 2018
    Having been a very active member on other forums one thing I have noticed is that rather important topics / problems / solutions tend to get buried at the bottom of a thread collection... It is even worse on a multi platform forum such as this. So I am proposing that we keep this thread open...

    Hey guys! I think this will be an easy one, and after researching I think the answer will be no but i'm after some confirmation. I'm buying a 60 plate Golf SE Bluemotion on Tuesday. Its got the RCD 510 with a phone button, and a multifunction steering wheel with a phone button. Can I expect...

  13. Golf 5 (type 1K) 2003 - 2009
    Hi All my turbo has to be replaced on my 2005 VW Golf 1.9cc tdi 90bhp trend (wastegate stuck open). I'm going the second hand route as I can't afford a reconditioned one or new one. I went to a car dismantler and got a turbo from what I think was a 2005 2.0cc tdi 140bhp sports. They look the...
