    Make sure the cambelt has been changed recently. It needs to be changed after 40k, not 80k like the manual states. Apart from that, not a lot really, the mk4 is a solid motor. Mine has done over 118k and it passed the MOT first time and I have had no major problems with it

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
