Wrote a bit on self knowledge that you might find amusing.

Hi there. I've been inspired by @fezza68's helpful thread RE dealers in the NW.
I have a VW Service plan for next 2 services, and therefore am tied to a VW Dealer. I didn't have the best experience last time I popped in to JCT600, Sheffield, and therefore wondering about other options...

Can anyone recommend a pair of ramps to suit 275mm tyres.
I don't want the low rise versions & I've seen a set of plastic 3T high rise (200mm tall) ones on flea bay for £70.
Open to suggestions though.. thanks
I’ve read Dellmassive’s excellent post on servicing but I’m still unsure what to do.
I have a 68 plate Kombi which is for recreational use only (less than 10K Miles/year) and I understand VW no longer do service books. Do I rely on the vehicle to let me know when the service is due or should I...
My T6 is now over 3 years old but recently converted to a camper. It was serviced last August so I will have to think about getting it done at sometime. Is the VW VC service cost worth it as I could get the next 4 + mot for
£799 + the dreaded VAT. Thats 2 interim and 2 full.
I was thinking of a...
Hi all after a bit of advice.
My 2017 150hp T6 Campervan was serviced on 24/5/18 at 5k miles before I bought it . It now has 7.5k miles on it and the service indicator shows it needing an inspection service in 33 days.
Am I interpreting that correctly ? I don’t want to invalidate the warranty...
I purchased my 2017 T6 3 months ago from VW in Abingdon.
Noticed I didn’t get a service book, they’ve said you don’t get one anymore as the service info is kept digitally on a database...
Does this sound correct??

Looking for service information on what gets serviced and when... Have seen the post that explains when you should get it serviced (mine is on the flexible system but will be doing it annually)

My camper is due it's first MOT in a couple of weeks. What are peoples thoughts on using a VW approved garage rather than VW themselves to carry it out?
I'm planning on keeping it for a few years but it will likely not do more than 2000 miles/year. It would be far easier (and cheaper I suspect)...
My 2 year old T6 is due an oil and inspection service and I was looking for recommendations in or around Milton Keynes. Ideally one which could offer me a courtesy vehicle (anything with wheels), whilst it was in for the work.
Reviews for Brian Currie and Lancasters are a bit...

Can't fault these guys at all and well worth the 1hr drive to the garage.
Used this garage due to a recommendation via @Fish.

Having recently bought an ex- demonstrator T6, I noticed that the service book wasn't present. After a discussion with the salesman, he said that they had started doing them online now so no need for the service book.
Has anybody had the same issue?
I have just made 80 000 km on my T6 204 Multivan. I have only use it for a long trips in EU. Nothing till that moment any main problems, even the brakes are fine. I change oil every 15000 km.
Do you colleagues, have some experience what should I expect to be "broken" soon?
I am asking...
