    Used it to go work today. Sounds like I’ve got a light knock from the engine when it’s cold and just switched on, seems to go after 20 seconds.. I feel an engine rebuild will be on the cards at some point

    Due to a bolt being snapped in the subframe when I first got the car and no logbook it has given me time to do a few little bits.

    So far:
    Breather hoses replaced as they were perished
    Rocker gasket done
    New cat and centre section
    New wiper mechanism as had seized
    New dogbone mount and gearbox mount
    Polybush subframe bushes
    Audi TT wishbone bushes with Polybush front bushes
    Replacement subframe
    Clutch pedal plastic retainer as original had worn through
    Forge 007p dv
    Got remote locking working

    Still a lot to do though, got replacement dials as the lcd on mine isn't working, got cupra r rear beam bushes to go on as well as a few other bits. At least now I can drive it though.

    Noticed the bumper hasn't been fitted back on flush after the radiator was fitted (like this on both sides). Is this an easy adjustment to make myself or should I take it back to the garage? I know it's nothing but it'll drive me mad.

    Oh and *fingers crossed* the coolant seems to be staying in. Still waiting on replacement reservoir which i'll swap anyway.

    Good luck, sounds promising! I had no idea where mine was leaking until garage checked it over & luckily was cheap fix & back in action after a day.

    The bumper looks ok but the wings look bent for so reason. Have they tried to botch the runners? They need taking off the car and putting on the bumper when you reattach. If you take the wheelarch liners off you should be able to get to the runners and feel if they're on right. But either way, I'd take it back to garage anyway and get them to do it properly

    Took car in on Saturday to get bumper fitted better...
    Ended up looking worse! Guy was scratching his head as (he even showed me) there's no runners on this car just nuts and bolts so no wiggle room for adjustments. So it's going to their bodywork guy on Tuesday.

    Absolutely, all about customer care.

    If I hadn't already invested a lot of time, money and love on this car I might have let it go as it's only cosmetic but I'm with her for the long haul so I want things right :D
