SO.  Up at 5am as usual for my bus to Notts city centre, then stand around like a dick for a while, followed by the 6am bus to Southwell for the daily grind at 7. VERY bored of loser cruisers...

A fairly busy yet largely monotonous day at work.  Told a few people to feck aff, lifted heavy things, zoomed around in the flatbed (VW Crafter - not worthy of pics). You know the form...

3.30pm and it's into this vehicle

S5030416.JPG

(40,000 odd genuine miles!!)

for a lift to here S5030420.JPG

and here S5030421.JPG

where I had a lovely chat with my insurance people, who informed me that my insurance has gone up by 30 clams a month as a result of this change in vehicle.  This makes me very happy and everything is FINE.

So, buoyed up by this info, I stand and wait for the (late) 5pm

S5030423.JPG

 

All aboard!

Another happy 5 clams spendage later (for ropey wifi) results in this

S5030426.JPG

 

Which brings us, rather uneventfully up to date.  I'm currently hurtling, mostly.

S5030427.JPG

 

More later I guess, or indeed tomorrow.

 

Exciting stuff huh? 

 

Hmm....it would also appear that this all happened 3 years ago.  An extremely modern car purchase then!

I'm using some heinously ancient technology here. Nae judgements like...

Aren't they just!  As luck would have it, I have a pair of these at home - only for the front, naturally.  Maybe they'll bend and fit....

OK, so, sorry for the lateness of follow up, but have been run off my feet since collection.  Am afraid there is no pez shot either, as the (very lovely) Raymond had left half a tank in it for me, and trust me - it was hardly dented after the drive home!

 

IMG_0818.JPG

IMG_0819.JPG

 

THE DRIVE HOME.  Well, to be honest, after recent bad luck, I was fearful and expecting the worst.  But wow.  I had a great drive home. 

 

IMG_0822.JPG

IMG_0821.JPG

 

In all honesty it sits much nicer on the road than the Golf did.  A real motorway muncher.  No knocks, rattles or bangs.  There's no doubt though - it needs an intensive service and a timing belt/water pump kit. 

Which costs 14 billion pounds. 

 

I'm defo playing TB roulette already, and I think it's been that way for a LARGE amount of miles.

 

CRUISE - I've never had it on a motor before (my my, I AM the future), and it's dead good tbh.  Works very well and totally added to the smooth ride home.

 

FILTH.  I have never had such a dirty car in my wee life.  Years of pure, concentrated London ming.  Proper clean up operation begins today - gonna go over it with an old toothbrush - round all the channels and nooks and crannies etc before I even start on the main bulk of it.  And wow - the interior was much the same!  I mean nae harm to Raymond here of course, as they just used it for 'no frills' to-and-fro transport in London and not much else.  But aye.  Have been de-crusting the dash and centre console etc non-stop since getting it.

 

IMG_0836.JPG

IMG_0835.JPG

IMG_0834.JPG

IMG_0833.JPG

 

PINEAPPLES.  As I say, clean up operation has begun in earnest.  But, filth, coupled with the fact that the tyres were only minimally legal, I decided upon an 'upgrade' and easy fix. 

 

IMG_0838.JPG

IMG_0831.JPG

IMG_0830.JPG

IMG_0844.JPG

 

There is no doubt in my mind that it suits the Golf alloys better anyway.  So shut UP.

 

I have also already started fitting the black leather interior from the Golf - back seats have gone in perfectly - a lovely fit and perfectly working fold-down etc.  Front seats are going in later today.  I agree that this is all rather pineappley, but the thing is, the seats - whilst comfy - are showing their age.  Also rather minging after years of London life. 

I think the black leather looks good in it too.

 

IMG_0840.JPG

 

And I love the smell of old leather seats in old shitey cars.

Sue me.

 

Am assuming that the wiring will be there for the heat, but switchgear would be an issue?  I'm already considering some aftermarket on off switches on the dash.  And I'm talking:

 

Ignition-switch-45470.jpg

 

But let's face it.  I probably won't get round to it.

 

DOOR. Another issue of course, is the rear passenger door being stuck shut.  This, and the footwell is rather moistened. Will probably take the central locking motor out of the Golf for this.  But, getting the door open or the card off whilst it's shut is probably going to be rather taxing.  Any hints or tips will be well received!

 

SHITE.  Am afraid that whilst swapping over the seats, all I came up with was 21p and a broken plastic pen.  No Kinder Surprise toys!  No sticky sweets!  Rather gutted tbh.  I do love new car freebies...

 

IMG_0825.JPG

 

Looking much more betterer after a good wash.  Ye shouldha' seen the shite that came off it!

 

IMG_0847.JPG

 

So that's about it for now.  Gonna take some more pics in a while and update this post. 

 

It's booked in for a full service and timing belt etc this week.  Which is (after Golf-gate and much borrowage) gonna financially bury me.  But I have no time or place to do any of it, so gonna just have to suck it up.

 

If the gearbox shites itself after all that, I will be found at the top of a very high place, drinking bottles of Jamesons and listening to Britney Spears.  In a state of undress and armed with a shillelagh.

 

I'm counting on this shapely bitch being worth it.

 

That'll be all fer now you freaks.

 

Kisses.

 

C

APPROVED.

 

Just be careful what oil they put in it.  The requirements for a PD engine are very specific, and many people are not putting a proper PD oil in them.

I don't think that many mechanics are taking enough care over this either.

The only one I ever found outside of a VAG group dealer was Castrol Edge Turbo Diesel but I don't remember which of the various numbers was the PD one.

Is it a PD engine? Mine wasn't, but it was three years older. I know VAG used the PDs as a differentiator - VW and Audi got them first, Skoda last, but not sure when Seat got them.

 

As for heated seats, the dashboard is straight out of an Audi A3 so you should be able to find the switches in a scrappy. I'd imagine more A3s had bumwarmers than Toledos and Leons....

 

Seat_Leon__05__d_4c569909dd832.jpg

 

I'd be very surprised if these don't fit, although they go on the far right and left of that row of switches in an Audi instead of the two leftmost gaps.

Pop the blanks out first and see if there's any wiring, also when you put the front seats in look for the wiring tucked away somewhere. Ford used to be cracking at giving you the loom for every option, not sure about VW.

If its a PD then it will need oil that meets VAG 505.01 spec which should be stated on the bottle. Looks like a nice buy I've never met anyone with a bad word to say about these Toledos/Leons.

yes it needs VW 505.01 oil.

the .01 is important.

Even 506.00 isn't PD compliant, and so you would need 506.01

 

at least that's my understanding, and it is this which has gotten it to 150,000 miles

PD oil filler cap is on the right as you look at the engine. Older mechanical dooflop injection is left, and there's a whacking great pump in front of it.

Looking at the M.o.T history the Seat has spent a few years up my neck of the woods - was tested at Duff Morgan Seat in Norwich up until 2011 then went to the big smoke after that. Smart looking thing though, much better after a wash!

130 = PD

The camshaft drives the unit injectors, I believe that's why oil quality is so critical, if neglected the camshaft lobes can end up being ground down.

Handsome cars, these, I don't like the Golf wheels on it if only because they're not SEAT wheels but I put Peugeot alloys on a Xantia once so nyeh.
