Mk5 General Area / Re: New Mk5 Owner - Cam Follower Nightmare

A lot of VAG engines have only the inlet cam driven by the belt and a chain driving the exhaust cam. 1.9tdi's were the same.

The cam with the blueing is the inlet cam btw.

Any other Reds on here?

It's been disappointing not to get Kieta and Van Dykk in this window but I'm quite impressed with the three we have signed. Salad has incredible skill and pace, although
His finishing has been off in his first Premiership games.

Solanke looks a great buy for next to nothing and I can see him leap frog the disappointing Origi this year. Andy Robertson looks capable of filling the left back vacancy after a superb debut v Palace.

It looks like we'll keep Coutinho, and I'd like to see us in for Draksler and Howedes. It would be a decent window then. If we get VVD that would be brilliant and then get Kietta next summer when his buy out clause is active.

Who would you like to see come in and who can you see realistically come in!?!?

YNWA!

Random Chat / Re: Leases (PCP) mileage limits and their purpose
« Last post by Mk5 GTian on Today at 04:31:48 AM Started by rdfcpete  »
Mileage on PCP is only an issue if you are handing the car back. Part ex or sell and it's not an issue.

PCH mileage limits are different however.
I have my R on a PCP and will be buying it at the end of the term by paying the final payment of £11k. Looking at 4 year old mk7 R values and 5-6 year old mk6 R values it will be worth way more than 11k and I won't need to worry about excess mileage. I would lose out big time by handing it back.

I'd go naturally aspirated as he's looking for reliability. 2 very nice cars I've owned that fit the bill have been the mk4 V6 4motion and the E46 BMW 330ci. Both sound lovely are well made and are capable of 30mpg on a long run.
I had the BMW for two years and it was an absolutely beautiful car with one of the strongest engines BMW have made. Quick enough too! I drove from Surrey to Cornwall a few times and remember getting out of the car feeling as fresh as a daisy. Supremely comfortable.
The Golf was lovely too, in deep pearlescent blue with cream leather and 4 wheel drive so perfect for our dreadful and long winters.

Mk5 General Area / Re: Wet centre/near-side back seat after the rain...

Thanks for the reply! I've had it suggested that it might be the sunroof drains, but no one wants to remove the roof lining!I've parked it all directions and I'm pretty certain the result is the same; wet back seats... you're right though, nose down does seem better.

I'm on a mission now, the seats aren't going back until I've sorted it  :confused:
