Now 20 Years from launch the MK1 Audi TT is becoming a Modern Classic, we have seen the price of low mileage unmolested example’s commanding high prices all across the country, especially the lightweight, sport and 225 BHP models.

We have had the pleasure of owning and driving several MK1 Audi TT’s from the 150 BHP to the 3.2 manual, mention to add which is very rare for V6 example. The prices in the last 12 Months of a perfect MK1 with good heritage and provenance has increased as collector’s are becoming aware of future values. Just think if you purchased a nice example MK1 Golf GTI, or a Lotus elise or even a Ford Fiesta XR2 5 Years ago, you would have most certainly had a better return than cash in the bank!! We currently have a MK1 TT 225 BHP Roadster which is in collectors first class condition with genuine lower miles with [...]

VW Polo TDI Timing Belt Service Interval

When Is My Volkswagen Diesel Cam Belt Kit Due?

Why does my cambelt need to be changed?
The cambelt is one of the hardest working parts in your engine, driving major parts of the engine and keeping everything synchronised. Changing it prevents snaps, cracks and tears which in turn minimises the risk of major engine damage.

What happens if it’s not changed?
The belt can go slack, making it snap or jump. This can cause severe damage to the engine. Your car will break down and could be very expensive to repair.
We strip down the relevant parts of the engine and renew the cambelt and cambelt tensioner. Then we reassemble the engine and road test your car on all vehicles supplied where the cam belt kit is due.

How often does it need to be changed?
4 – 5 years (4 years for cars registered before September 2009, 5 years thereafter). This may need to be changed sooner for [...]

The great value Seat Altea may be getting on a bit now, unveiled in 2003 and able to trace its roots right back to the Salsa concept car from the 2000 Geneva show, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less relevant. Even the introduction of the excellent Alhambra full-size MPV doesn’t detract from this car’s appeal.

Much like the Renault Scenic which started the compact MPV craze, the Altea is available in both standard and XL variants – though unlike its rival the larger Altea still only has five seats. Instead it simply offers much more boot space – 123-litres extra in fact. It’s could be seen as a strange decision, but in reality not many compact MPV’s are employed to transport more than four passengers regularly, and customers with busy lifestyles will appreciate the extra room for luggage. Based on the Golf Plus this model is the high powered 140 BHP Sport 6 speed

Unveiled in September 2001, the all-new Mark IV (or Typ 9N, sometimes erroneously referred to as the “Mark 6”) model was put on sale in early 2002. It shares its platform with the SEAT Ibiza Mk3, Škoda Fabia Mk1 and Škoda Fabia Mk2. The car is all new compared to the Mark III/F, and bears structural resemblance to Golf MK4 (1J). Outwardly the most recognisable change is the use of quad round headlights similar to the Lupo’s.
