Hi Mate, and welcome to the club!!


Firstly, Don't panic......its all fixable!!

Now, I was you I'd be ringing Elite VW in Basildon 01268 581111. Speak to them about your engine. What they don't know really isn't worth knowing. They will also recover if necessary. They also do replacement engines if yours really has gone.

Or, if dosh is a problem, get a second hand one through the club - they come up fairly regularly. Choice is yours. Elite units carry a good warrenty, secnd hand units....well you takes your chances....

Hope that in some way helps!!
