Clutch pedal dropped to the floor, so couldn't get gears.  It had to choose a very busy intersection at peak rush hour to do it didn't it  :grin:  Police had to shut the carriageway and tow me off. Ultra embarrassing  :doh:

Guessing it's the clutch master cylinder so have ordered one.

Effing thing. I'm 100% definitely done with bloody manual gearboxes after this experience  :grin:

It makes me laugh when folk choose a manual over DSG because they are afraid it will do exactly what my manual did to me  :grin:

It's going to be dumped at WBAC's door after it's fixed.

I thought about a private sale but with the mileage and issues (minor to be fair to it) it’s got, it’s not worth a lot. It would make a good renovation project to sort a few minor things but I don’t have the time or inclination anymore.

As for replacement, petrol is out due to my commute. Looking at some performance diesel options. MK7 GTD, 125d, 335d that kind of thing. Boring I know but I’m bores of temperamental petrol engines  :grin:
