    Remarkable distance if you think about it.

    Let's hope the Passat can make it back

    Mine's an 03 TDi 130 Sport estate that I've had from new - I'm a bit behind you though - a mere 176,000 but catching fast! Brilliant car and still does ridiculous MPG...

    " if only everything was as reliable as a volkswagon "

    To be honest, that's not totally true - this is my 2nd Passat - the last one lasted 6-months and was nothing but trouble - I had that one from new as well.

    Very long story short, after 3-turbos, exhaust, intercooler, bla, bla and indeed bla, they discovered the fault with the car was in the combustion chamber (like I said it was) - chuffing oil out like a valve stem oil seal had gone.

    They eventually 'fitted' a new engine only for it to fall out on the motorway 2-weeks later - no kidding!

    I'd had enough by then and they 'replaced' my car with the one I've got now...

    This one's been brilliant - however, is your temp gauge as fecked as mine?
