  1. Changing the DSG oil is one of the first jobs to do and I understand they can be recalibrated or is that just when a remap is needed? Can one switch between the different gear selection methods in any speed, then?
  2. No worries Steve, it's better to be safe and all that. What do you know about the DSG gearbox. I am guessing being in manual/paddle mode is the same as Sport for the usual auto, or does the Sports mode end up doing other quirky things. I have never had one before, so don't even know at what points you can swap between the different settings i.e auto/ auto sport or manual.
  3. Strangely, both the garage and my mechanic mate say the 3.2 V6 is chain and not belt which should. E changed at 120k Are they in error?
  4. StrangelyIt has 103k so not high for sge but obviously beyond belt change. I will get on to garage to see if any mention in service book i assume it is destructive if breaks and not a fail to safety option? Big job for just belt?

  6. Garage dealer seems genuine enough. New bushes, pads, gaiter fo MOT so if service, plugs and lambda done then cant say much wrong with deal is it belt or chain driven?
  7. Can't beat a Landy, however badly made they are. Hopefully the EML should be addressed with the new lambda sensor which the garage are fitting. My mate could find no other engine fault with his diagnostics. Apart from the brakes that is, which if having a service and an MOT, irregular pad wear and some nearly to the metal, should be picked up. Here's my black fleet, less the Celica. Plus the not all black but large Sheppie.
  8. Well here is a photo of the hopefully new car. Looks good in silver...spoils my black theme that my BMW GS Landy 90 have but hey, if it is as hoped it will be worth it. Lol
  9. Brakes and pads are a doddle. I would do but if not MOT pasable then down to dealer i would suggest.
  10. Well my mate took his diagnostic gubbins etc and reckons engine is ok. He’s more concerned with brakes that he says needs renewing all round. As an MOT tester he woildnt pass it. So i have put down a deposit. It eill come with 12 mth MOT. Full service incl plugs and 3 mth warranty so cant be bad. Will see how brakes go with his MOT man so may have to contest them. They go quite well dont they.?
  11. Fair point. He is going to have a proper look for me in the next day or so.
  12. Thanks Steve. The one I am looking at seems to have most options. Heated seats, climate control etc. My mechanic friend is concerned by the eml being on as it may indicate other issues rather than the lambda sensor that the error code states. Air flow or cat problems, so may be a non starter. as in one to avoid.
  13. Hello to all. I have recently developed and itch to scratch in the name of an Audi TT 3.2 Quattro. An early one that is. I know I am probably preaching to the converted but I was wondering what thoughts people have on the pros and cons of this particular model. I know they are heavy for their size, but they look tiny and a proper car compared to my stop gap of a Celica VVTLI. The latter being bonkers on lift with a lot less weight and 190bhp. So do I or don't I? Thanks for thoughts.
