Hi Folks

If you are browsing or lurking and wish to add your name to our growing list of members then you will be made most welcome.

In order to protect the forum from Spammers and time wasters there are a couple of things we'd like to mention. These won't be a problem to genuine participants:

All requests for membership are forwarded to one of the Admin team who will confirm your membership by e-mail back to you, HOWEVER, we may not accept your registration if we think you are just out to spam the forum.

So


Please do not try to register with a name that uses multiple numerical characters e.g gremlin3456. This tells the Admin team that you are a spammer and using an automated process to generate registrations.

If you register with a web site that is selling porn,pharmacy,gambling, cigarettes etc. your registration and membership will be deleted regardless of your contribution to the Forum.

If you register with a web site that is personal/blog but could be seen as profane, bigoted, pornographic, inciting violence or inciting criminality; your web link will be removed and/or your membership deleted.

If you make multiple registrations with web sites that have commercial links that fall into the categories above and/or are of no obvious interest to the forum ( e.g. www//*.ru in russian) then all of your registrations and memberships will be deleted.

If you register with a web site that is advertising Property Sales or is an Employment Recruiting agency and you are not making a contribution to the forum then your web link will be removed.


Every so often we need to go through the membership listings and delete all of those who, for some strange reason, register successfully but don't ever post anything. Can we suggest http://www.forumfortheterminallyshy.com for those who fall into that category

In short, please use the forum as it was intended and enjoy the facility. If you are just out to exploit the facility then don't be surprised if you can't log on or yor web page link has been removed. If anyone is having a problem registering because they have fallen into the net designed to trap the Spammers then please send me a private e-mail and I wll ensure your registration gets through.

Sorry if that's a bit 'school teacher' but there are just too many Neanderthals out there who take great delight in spoling the enjoyment of genuine members of this and other forums.

Enjoy!

Hi Forum development team.
I read your post asking for people not to register user names with just letters and numbers after I had signed on. So apologies for that.
In my case TCSC stands for Tom Corbet, Space Cadet. He is a fictional character from books, TV and radio in the USA from the 50's. A proto James T Kirk in training, if you will, and along with Biggles, he is one of my all time heros! When I grew up, I wanted to be just like him, -- but the closest I got was just being "spaced out", I'm afraid!
Rock on All!

They just will NOT call you back.
Neither the dealers, nor the central customer services, nor the central dealers helpdesks (Inchcape - looking at you!) call me back....
This annoys me, as the rest of VW's stuff is amazing - just phone me back! If you can't do what I want - phone me and tell me! Grrr!

I think maybe that while Renault (read above) are trying to make up for years of rubbishness, VW are complacent.
But I repeat - the car is brilliant, and it's the only time, when I've asked my wife how the new car was, she's looked enthusiastic about a car!

I am having a problem with Audi UK from a parts supply perspective (not a cheap part either, nearly £1K) and they have not been getting back to me. In the end I emailed Audi in Germany and within two days someone from Audi UK called me to tell me what was happening.

I don't get them not doing it!
It's easy, just phone, and tell me what they need to. Even if it's bad news, I'd feel better if they just called!

Never known a company like it! Like I say, I think they're complacent.

"Post new thread" seems to be there in the top left of the topic index as usual.

Welcome to the forum Martin.


If you have glow plugs then its a diesel but we need more info as your car spec is empty. Look at the main index each model is listed along with the years, decide where you need to post a question.

Can I suggest that you add your car spec to your signature as it will save users asking every time, if you know the engine code that will also be great? Oh you can't do this of a phone. Adding your car spec

Data Sticker/Options Sticker and Engine Codes
