Jag don't seem to have got into their heads that build quality is of the utmost importance in a car. Went on a Jag experience day which in fairness was a brilliant day out but all of their cars -...

You may want to take a look at this - had exactly the same issue on my 2007 Passat! VW should replace the wing under warranty for a 2013 car.

Thanks! it was the envy of many of my friends at the time, but i worked damn hard to buy that, working silly hours on a tiny wage at the time.

Think it had less than 12k miles on it when i got it.

That's a nice little project!

Definitely get rid of the wheels though, some nice Mk4 GT/GT-TDI wheels will look amazing without being OTT.

That looks great! Love a black golf with some decent wheels on!

Are those Passat wheels? They look identical to the standard ones on my Passat Sport.

"Monte Carlo" i think they're called.

Wow. thats a lot! I was thinking self-drive, single car, £500-600 for the day max really.

Would something like an Audi R8 be do-able for that kind of money?

Rust on the arches of the Mk5 is a common problem, although it usually happens on the front IIRC.
