Re: Gap and alloy wheel insurance

A word of caution with gap insurance. In the event your car is a total loss, some gap insurers do not want you to accept what your main insurer has offered until they agree it (obviously, they want to keep their contribution down to a minimum). When I was shopping around, I found stories on the inte...

Re: Steam cloud from exhaust

Well I’ve spoken to my dealer about this and it’s booked in next week to be checked, just doesn’t seem right. When I put my foot down today I couldn’t see the car behind me due to the steam so I don’t think somethings right. I had a Mk 2 Tig from new on 66 plate 2.0 TSI 180PS. Always had what I con...

Re: Gap and alloy wheel insurance

I have ALA gap insurance. My car is now one year old and so just taken out 3 year back to invoice gap for £240 (used 25% discount code as mrew42 refers). Worth checking with your insurer whether they do replace the car during the first year in the event of a total loss (LV do but not sure if all oth...

Re: Leather interior swap

If the cloth and leather seats are otherwise identical, it might be possible to swap the leather covers off the replacement seats and fit them on your own? If you haven't yet obtained your replacement seats, VW may well supply replacement leather covers which could be a further option. However, if i...

Re: Sat nav - any good?

"Firstly what type of route did you select as you have the option of shortest/fastest/most economical (I never select shortest as this can include narrow country lanes), and secondly you don't have to follow every single turn by turn direction if you don't want to, common sense can and should be use...

Re: Sat nav - any good?

The only other problem is that it has a habit of routing down narrow country lanes as the speed limit is 60mph (National Speed Limit unless sign-posted otherwise) and the sat nav assumes you will drive at this speed making it, in theory, the quickest or shortest route. The reality is that you can ne...

Re: BlackStyle reveiled

Love the outside - shame not available here in the UK. I would also like to see this in black rather than grey - I wonder if that would be too much black? I agree the R-Line looks good in white (that's why mine is that colour too) but the Blackstyle pack certainly makes a statement and I am certainl...

Re: Thoughts on extended warranty?

I too would take up their offer being mindful of the valid points that CNC makes. If you ever have to make a claim, the likelihood is that this will exceed the price of the policy as VW parts and labour are not cheap. Taking the excess of £100 option will keep the cost to you down which would help i...
