    Has anyone successfully challenged VW's price increase?

    After a wait of almost 20 months (which I may have mentioned once or twice :whistle:), my new van has finally landed at the dealers. Unfortunately, what should have been a moment of unbridled celebration was tempered by the dealer asking for £2.3k more than the price we agreed when I ordered. :(...

    Servicing - VW dealer or local garage?

    My 2019 T6 is asking for an inspection (I'm assuming it means a service). I've done 35,000 miles. Do I have to take it to my inept VW van centre, or can I take it to my friendly local garage? What are the benefits or taking it to VW (if any)? I'm guessing the bulk of the service is an oil...

    MOT/Service - dealer or elsewhere?

    Ello gang, What's the general consensus on getting Mots and services' done at the VW centre? Is it worth paying the premium or is it daylight robbery? Granted I won't need an Mot for a few years as I've got a new bus, but I'm trying to get my head around if it's worth it ahead of time...

    So the day I've been dreading for so long as finally arrived. Today my boy goes in for a major operation. Like all parents I'm extremely anxious of how it will go. I've not slept for a number of nights with worry. Hopefully Midland VW will take good care of big red while he has a cam belt...

    VW Garage Issues

    So my van went into VW with a booked appointment last Monday. Unfortunately, the dealer I bought the van from recently was dealing directly with the VW garage, so everything is going through them. I heard nothing all week, expecting to have the van back quickly. I cancelled my weekend's plans as...
