Well 2 weeks ago it had leccy problems and needed a new ECU. The car was running better than eva as it had been faulty out of the factory. Now im drivin home last night, the Engine light comes on and the dash starts flashing "serious engine fault" at me!! I take it in this morning and because I didnt ring up last night when they were "closed" to book it in I cant have a courtesy car!! Just to add insult to injury the car now comes wid a years free insurance!! GUTTED!!!!!

Shame you live in the opposite direction from me, other wise i could give you a lift to work lol.

My mates pug was recalled cause of electric/ecu problems. My mates clio had similar problems, reports of air bags deloying randomly in them things.

Think cars are coming far to technical for their own good, built for the garage now-a-days.

The new GTI 180 is a sexy looking car, specially in blue IMO. What are the restrictions on the insurance?

A lot of people want you to be 25 but if u join an owners club its not to bad to be honest!! The blue is ok but far too common IMO.
