    Service Query - Flexible & All-in Options

    My van is shortly 4 years old (June 2023) so I am aware MOT, timing belt, water pump, aux belt and DSG service are required. But, I also *assume* an engine service (minor or major) is also due. I bought it approved used at 3 years old (June 2022j and it had just been MOT’d for the first time. I...

    What’s included in a VW service?

    Had my first interim service at a main dealer last Friday and all was ok, just wondered what’s included in the service as today my “ad blue” warning has come on to let me know I need to top up. It’s not really an issue as I can do this myself but would of thought a service would have picked this...

    Have to big up these guys as VW specialists. They've looked after my MK4 golf for 10+ years and now look after the van too. They're on the VW network, know everything there is to know about all VW vehicles. They don't do MOT but can prep the car/van. If you need someone to service your van I...

    Pet Hates #01 Spray Grease On Door Hinges!

    Top of the list in pet hates. Those lazy guys who think that using half a can of aerosol grease pointed roughly in the direction of the hinge points is ‘lubricating’ the door hinge. Please stop it, arrrghhh. None of the grease does anything for the hinge and a week later it will be running down...

    Oil Change recommendations - Dealer or Indy?

    i am getting the warning come up that I need an interim service ie oil change. VW want to steal £174 + VAT. I can probably get it done cheaper locally but will that impact the warranty? Additionally they want it in all day. Why FFS? It’s a 1 hour job at most. Any local recommendations...
