      NRMA. With the discount, longer warranty and the fact they will come and help if it is fux0red in the burbs!

      Hey Will, don't suppose you have a spare grille outer trim lying around? Y'know the red bit. DubSteve can sort me out with the single headlight grille, but my current grille doesn't have the outer metal trim, so I need to chase one up. I can get it OS, but the shipping fees sux0r...

      Hmm, battery is okay. I think the cold start valve is the next on the list.

      Buy yourself a multimeter as well. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Did you drive it to work?

      Hmm, mk1 & mk2 memories.
      I think I have had every thing go worng you guys mention.
      Old cars are great, you buy it a new battery it's great for a day then the altenator dies, so it gets rebuilt, but then the belt slips and the mount bends/bolt strips so it never stays tight.
      It gets you stuck in Mittagong, then a month later Goulburn later on again in the snowies.

      Nope. I took reliability over charm today.

      There must be 1000's of people out there with MK1 bits, but glad you stumbled on the one you needed!

      I thought he had shut down. Good to know he hasnt been driven out of business. Another source for my steering rack.
      Nice Liam. Keep up the seek and replace efforts. The more you fix, the better it is... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Brian has everything.........and it's always new parts. Feels good buying quality and hard to find bits.
      99% of my engine bay is from him........the rest is rust

      Yeah a bunch of good stuff on our GTI is from Brian. He's a funny old guy but he knows his stuff and rarely can't get what you need [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I remember calling him once regarding a part and mentioned I couldnt get it from VW Australia. He literally screamed at me down the phone line for about 2 minutes for not calling him first... the phone speaker was distorting... At least he is passionate...

      some of this business comes from guys who run 16V race spec motors in those speed way type of wheelies......

      Must be scary when 25% of his business income comes from a handful of MK1 owners!

    23. 10-17-2009 07:30 AM #73
      I'd say it's closer to 5%.
      theres enough poor engineering in VW's to keep him going with the newer stuff........e.g alloy sump MKIV's and O2O gboxes on transports to name a few.
