  1. Samson

  2. VAG COM

    Simon, I am near maidenhead and have one, if you are still interested in using it.
  3. Exactly. I know the chains are MEANT to last the life of the car but they do 1) stretch and 2) CAN break. I wasnt saying you dont care about your car but I would do it without a second thought, the work gone into changing the tensioners you may as well do the chains as well thats all im saying, I would rather wait another week, get the chains and then not have to worry about doing them in the future. By the way the R32 tensioners are meant to be much better, they last longer.
  4. To do the lower tensioner you need the box off anyway, the chains are then a piece of p*?s, seriously and they really are not that much. Ask anyone on here who cares a tiny bit about their car and they will tell you to change them at the same time mate.
  5. If it has FVWSH then they should have changed the chains by now, if it has done 140,000. I think the recommended time to change them is around 100,000 give or take.
  6. Get more info, dont just take their word for it, find out exactly what is wrong with it.
  7. VAG COM East sussex or just sussex.

    I am near Slough, about an hours drive from you, ROUGHLY. Willing to help although I am away for a week and a half from friday night onwards.
  8. I do use GSF quite a bit but my brother bought bearings from them recently for his Corrado and had to replace them after 6 months as they were breaking up. I would recommend going for original parts to be honest.
  9. p.s. I would place money on the camshaft sensor...
  10. I am near slough, not in it, near it so pretty close to you. Got Vag-Com if you are interested still and need the help.
  11. heater matrix

  12. Worst mod to be added to a VR6

  13. Worst mod to be added to a VR6

    very true but there are lots of tasteful mods to do, there are lots that I dont like but still think they are tasteful, and lots i do like that i also think are tasteful but tacky mods...... nah!!!!!
  14. Worst mod to be added to a VR6

    So many mods that look crap... and you should not in any way shape or form abuse the VR6, they are quality cars and putting cheap crappy mods on them 1) lowers the value, 2) brings down the whole quality of the model, not just that one car 3) makes the other owners of those cars look silly (what kind of person do you think of when you think Saxo??? ) 4) wastes a lot of money 5) keeps rip-speed in business... Only personal opinion but I can not stand badly modded cars when the quality of the car demands more, I can understand it on a saxo, I can understand it when you are young but if you dont have the money to buy a quality car and mod that car tastefully then you shouldnt really try to mod it until you have the money for proper/tasteful mods. No hating/hatin just personal opinion.
