  1. Can anyone recommend a cheap coilover kit for a 1996 mk3 VR ? Need it before my VR bounces clean off the road at the next pothole !!! &| Cheers, Rob
  2. Leak coming from front Left

    Probably Coolant . - Check your radiator hoses for splits/leads
  3. Where has the Search feature gone ???
  4. I didn't get a manual for the Vr when I bought it. Does anyone know if there is an online or PDF one somewhere ? Or can anyone tell me how to rest the 'OEL' change indicatopor that comes up in the tripmeter window ?
  5. Coolant loss

    I seem to be losing coolant, but cannot see a leak anywhere - Could it be the blue cap on the expansion tank ? Am also losing oil, v slowly though, but it isn't a head gasket problem. Can anyone help ?

  14. whistling noises HELP NEEDED

    It is a breather - mine was broken too - got one at the Malvern meet - but mine still whistles ! - I guess its the same as blowing across the top of a bottle - as the intake sucks air in - it whistles - maybe a bigger Airfilter will sort it !
  15. Key cutting - how much !!!

    Been quoted 17 quid for a duplicate key at Mister Minit - some bollox about a tranponder needing to be programmed into the key !!!! WTF ??? Any one know where I can get one at a reasonable price !!! cheers, Rob
