Good news Patrick. Well done for persevering.
Mine is booked for Tuesday - let's hope we both sail through!

MOT test abandoned due to minor coolant leak. It’ll get booked in again soon.
Gary, I trust yours passed ok.

That's a shame Patrick. But if that's all there is to find, it's pretty good.

Yes, thanks, mine passed OK despite my concerns about the, ever present, rear hub bearing play.

I'm three weeks into my DJ to ADY swap.
I fitted a catalyser to mine by choice.

Only issue so far is a niggly power loss going through 2200-2800 if I floor it.
Im working on that.
ADY 2.0L 8V. (Golf GTi MkIII)
