I have already bought the part and half fitted it just can not get it to clip around the anti roll bar.....I have admitted defeat and booked it into the garage to just complete it as they are looking at an oil leak I have (fingers crossed that is covered under my warranty).
Oh yeah how do you know about turbos.
The turbo on my Golf exploded on week 3 of ownership. Bought from Reg Vardey with their comprehensive warranty. I called them up- car needs fixing etc. Sorry sir, that is classed as a wear and tear item. Oh really izzat so, says I. Mhmm they say. Cut a long story short I ended up speaking to VW technical support centre where I asked for their turbocharger recommended lifespan documentation. Life of the engine, I was told. May I have evidence of that? Yes of course sir, what's your fax number (for 'twas 2005). That then got sent to the warranty people with "is the engine a wear and tear item too?" added.
Got fixed two weeks later. No apology. C***s.
