    :banana: Great work there. Not sure if those carpets have been lifted since 1976! Any serious / worrying rust there?

    Great work. Looks slightly odd to see my old car in its new life, but all for the better. I bet it will actually stop now.

    Looks awesome! The old dash really was knackered. I could never find a dash mat that would stay in place without having to add ugly velcro. The old radio was a bit warped as well, though I did kind...

    Hi,

    As plenty of people will probably tell you, dealers aren't necessarily the best places for servicing. There's many independent VW workshops that can do the same work for less (and possibly...

    Yep, what I was thinking - get it done anyway. Cheap insurance, yes, but still not that cheap going by one of the posts here. Plus I need a 60K km service as well and it all adds up $$ wise. It's a...

    Thanks for the info. Just some side questions:

    Do the same replacement intervals apply for non-GTI Mk5s?

    Are there any symptoms of a worn timing belt or way of inspecting/investigating without...

    I can't top that. I took 900 pictures while overseas, but only a handful of cars. More interesting things to see. ;)

    Non Aus Spotted O/S

    While recently in the UK I spotted some (possibly) noteworthy cars, if anyone's interested.

    Ok, so it turns out I don't need a RWC. D'Oh! :facepalm: Just as well I posted on here or I could have wasted my money.

    Thanks for all the comments.

    Cheers.
