  1. Oh that’s a shame. FIX IT AGAIN TONY.
  2. Yep that’s the standard VAG cruise control stalk - a useful option for long journeys on flat, fast roads. I would run the new oil and filter for 500 miles on some good long high speed runs before changing - that gives the additives time to tackle sludge and gunge. You can of course change earlier but I would argue it’s a waste as a well as a pain in the arse.
  3. Sounds like a good going over with a bissell / vas / rug doctor upholstery tool/ attachment is urgently needed
  4. Post gory pictures of what comes out of the sump please.
  5. That is your opinion - fair enough. Mine is that to an 18 year old me, even with a knackered but still very willing 1300, every journey made in the wet made you feel like a power sliding rally king with the 155 tyres. This is why I remember them fondly. Obviously this is a very specific reason that on public roads would only appeal to a knobend that was me at the time and I dare say you were more sensible when you last drove one than I was then (I remember being caught out on a roundabout in Maidenhead one rush hour when it suddenly stepped out literally 90 degrees to the direction

    What’s the rim width? I’d be tempted to keep to the standard size or perhaps go up a width profile to 155/80/14 as that won’t affect the car’S dynamics by much (steering weight etc.) and better options are available in that size (a quick glance gives you the conti eco contact 6 which is excellent value at 40 something quid a corner, up to you if you want to pay a little more over Chinese death rings of course). I’m not sure what the SR bit means, I don’t think it’s important.
  7. Fuel filter would be my first port of call, when you change it I would fill it with neat injection cleaner (good stuff, not redex mind), then tip another bottle in the tank and brim it with branded fuel. Hopefully this sorts the issue.
  8. Might be of interest? Limited edition magnetic engine oil on shitebay
  9. I reckon you might eventually recover enough to get over it in time. Chin up.
  10. Still looks eleventy-million times better though doesn’t it? Keep at it I say.
  11. If they achieve total success I think you owe it to them and us to name and glorify
  12. Just to finish on the subject of the oil, I would have put money on 10/40 being correct so yes give it a go, as said monitor at 500 and then 1000 miles for oil colour, change after 3000 if still golden brown rather than black if it’s cheap cheap stuff, leave it for maximum 5000 miles or year maximum if decent. I remember years ago a chap on practical classics mag gradually flushed the engine of a Mitsubishi Colt he’d bought in this way, he had to keep changing at 500 miles 3 or 4 times before he could start to lengthen out the change intervals however, as the engine was so filthy internal
  13. I agree, show me a mint 1300XL or 1300e exactly as they came when new over a RS2000 any day.
