    Unhappy omfg!!

    my fiancee as just bought a mk3 1400 p plater and wen i bought it they said they fit a cambelt to it after i said id buy it if... any way cut long story short they put the cambelt on and used an air gun and wazzed the botton pully on as i was watchin and they only shhered the end of the crank off by over tightning . Now bearin in mind we only payed 900 notes for it ,its costing the garage more than wat we payed for the car to put it rite,bloodyt idiots

    If they were that bad in the first place i'd be wary of the repairs they do to get it on the road, they will try and keep costs down.

    If you're an ex vaux tech, why didn't you do the work yourself & knock them down further on the price? - that's what I would have done.

    What a shame to damage such a low milage engine
