Keep an eye on the shock absorbers, for some reason VAG group cars are terrible for having them explode, get the gearbox fluid changed more regularly than the 40k as towing will put greater stress on it. But it looks tidy.

We need a caravan thread now

They are nice cars.

Whatever you do, don't ever buy a DSG box and tow with it! They don't like it! CVT like yours far far better at accepting the low speed slip and pulling as the fluid does the slipping, not nuthing mechanical!

Garage
Just replaced the insurance for the next 12 months
Fully comp. £250 excess. Protected NCD. SWMBO & I to drive. Not garaged. 6000 miles / year
£212.51 with Hastings Direct
Happy enough with that

Gave the Avant a well deserved clean today. 'Twas absolutely filthy inside & out after pulling the caravan around for a week in a typical english summers weather

VP CPW
Washed with CarChem 1900:1 shampoo
Gave the bodywork a coat of Auto Allure Celator QD
Wheels given a coat of TW Hybrid Sealant Hydrophobic Wax
Tyre dressed with Megs endurance tyre gel
Exhaust cleaned with Autosol (tips are still a work in progress)
Interior plastics cleaned with a mild APC
Leather cleaned with Dr.Leather leather wipes
Exterior glass cleaned with CP Eraser
& hoovered !



Can't believe I haven't used the Celator before. Certainly leaves a glossy slick finish
