    Hello! VW Newb!

    thought i would sign up and say hello.

    stumbled across the forum after looking for VW garages in the stoke area, recently just purchased a 05 Bora 130 TDI (first VW BTW always been into my french sh*tboxes), never really been into the dub scene until i noticed a very nice passat wagon on mcdonalds up at vicky road after work one night, the owner gave me the look as if he wanted stab me lol but thats a different story.

    Mods some people might ask, well they are on hold as the kwik fit service history that came with the car was well, ermm how can i say ****!

    -Front wisbone bushs need replacing
    -IC pipes leaking
    -EGR valve leaking
    -Disc/pads on the back (according to the kwik fit invoice were changed few months back, by the looks of them its hard to believe they have been changed)nt major

    and a few more nitty picky things that are bugging me which il iron out when i have time, so quite a healthy bill for me to come just yet.

    other then that iam Ash, 21 from the Stoke area pics will follow just incase you don't know what a VW Bora looks like LOL

    Welcome, an unfortunate list of stuff there for new ownership but sure it will get sorted.

    What are your plans for it after the work?

    If you are after any inspiration check out the Passat section on Edition38 - 78 page picture thread should help you out!

    cheers for the welcome guys much appreciated!

    quick dirty picture



    plan wise, i will get the long list of jobs sorted first, maybe a remap, then tackle the 'one careful lady owner' marks that are on the car which are all the wheels are kerbed, body work ie rear bumper (there are parking sensors, so god knows how they have scraped it) few dings and stone chips and then what ever else tickles my pickle browsing around VW forums
