  1. I'm going to leave our old European continent this summer so sadly I have to sell my GTV. It's a phase 1, dark grey and black leather, year 1996, 78000 kms, fully original except a interior alu Zender kit (pedals, gear lever knob, handbrake lever). 2nd hand, bought end of 2014 with only 50000 kms on the clock. The good: - New cam belt, new shocks, new wheel bearings, new brake discs and pads, new complete exhaust, new spark plugs. I have the invoices. - Clean history since day 1 including purchase invoice. - Good summer tires on 17" Teledials, good winter tires on 16" original alu rims. - 2 keys + service key + key code card. - Regularly serviced (invoices, new thermostat, new clutch slave cylinder, oil leak fixed, new battery). - Squadra ECU chip installed + OEM chip - Very nice paint and straight body - Very clean interior The bad: - Front bumper a bit wobbled (no paint crack) - Tiny 2mm stone chip in the windscreen located 3 cm near the lower edge - Airbag light on since I moved the seat... - Leakage in the air conditionning circuit (had it refilled, it worked but a short time) - One Pinninfarina side logo missing Overall it's a very clean car, will drive any distance with no weird noise. I'll add fresh pictures soon. Car is garaged (undercover) in Krakow (Poland) and registered in Luxembourg. Title is of course on my name. Asking price is EUR 4000. If genuinely interested, please throw a PM.

  8. VW in big troubles

    Well, there are other issues as well. One is that VW benefited in various countries from subsidies for 'clean cars' - and/or cuts on taxes for 'low emissions'. All those countries will probably want to get that money back. Another strange thing is that VW claims now that 'less than 10 people' were aware of this part of the code. Who's going to believe that? I can't imagine how that's possible. In 6 years between 2009 an 2015, there's been quite a few programmers and managers who must have noticed something...

    Nah, just sometimes I'm shacking my head in disbelief
  10. Hi to all

  11. Clutch on V6

    Test drove yesterday a V6 3.0 24V - damn what a sweet engine... I didn't buy the car because it needed too much TLC and I already have a demanding TS. Anyway, I noticed the clutch was much firmer than on my TS, and the stroke much shorter. Is that as expected on a V6, or is that the sign clutch is getting near end of life? (120,000 km and probably original clutch). Also the steering wheel was quite firmer. Is that because of the engine weight, or rather unexpected? Otherwise, V6s have a much sweeter gearbox it seems

    This video would have been even funnier if the jack had failed

    BTW, anyone knows how the software operates to detect emission tests? Edit: All I found is this diagram:
  14. VW in big troubles

    Isn't it looking bad for VW? I mean, really really bad? Summing it up: - half a million of cars to recall and modify in the US, and a fine of potentially USD 18 billions - 11 million cars in the world in potential need of recall - potential fines from other countries than the US? - stock price down by nearly 40% in only 2 days - reputation tarnished for long years
