    Hi folks, Was changing the oil in my GTI yesterday, standard time based change. Over the course of the last 12 months I have probably added 300ml of oil to keep the level at max, it uses up very little which is great. Anyways, whilst I was giving it the once over I noticed a fair bit of oil...

  6. VW Alloy Wheels & Tyres
    Hi, A few months ago I bought a 67 plate Golf GTI with 19" Brescia alloys (factory fitted) along with the DCC. If I'd bought the car new I'd never have even considered the bigger wheels, its just how it came and it was otherwise a good car. Despite having the DCC, I don't think I'm going to...
