    It is nice when a customer realises that it was going to happen anyway, I have a lot of really decent customers, one who has been with me since I was 18, and I do my utmost to make everything perfect. Some are utter gems like Ken the biscuit man and Mrs Akram who brings us tasty Indian treats that blow your head off. I have thankfully got to a work load stage that if someone looks/sounds like a **** we say we are fully booked for the next 33 years...

How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Vw is apparently suspending the recall fix due to all the failures of Dpf and egr valves there is a interesting read on autoexpress.

    Rumours I hear from ex colleagues still in vag dealer's is they aren't even doing the software update , just purely the paperwork. Also hear many customers are having egr valves fitted for free.

    I am a bit concerned that the failure of the EGR valve is being blamed on the recall because this simply ins't true, it was a useless unreliable unfit for purpose component in the first place.

    Firstly, I hope not and secondly, only a drop or two over the last few months, saving a packet!

    I'd say don't have it done, my Audi A3 1.6 diesel ('61 plate) has now been in twice and the engine now runs too fast, uses more fuel. Audi are now talking about having the car in for 2 days to find the fault, more trouble than it's worth.

    It wasn't broke so why fix it?

Just been away for a few days came back on a recovery truck ,engine cutting out spluttering limp mode ect was told by vw that because egr valve went at 40,000 mile now it's had update it will probably go again god help who answers the phone to me in the morning at vw absolutely fuming wish I'd known you didn't have to have it done had 3 golfs wont be having another one .
