    Hello all, I have recently purchased a 55plate FR+ 150 tdi with 30k on the clock and regained my love of driving again. I have now noticed a slight flat spot after changing from 2nd to 3rd gear.

    How to spot a genuine TDI FR130

    I've been browsing Autotrader looking for an FR TDI 130, and I'm a little wary about people advertising a car as an 'FR 130' when in fact it's just a remapped 110, or even nothing of the sort. One thing which worries me is that there seem to be a few which have 'TDI' on the back, instead of...
  7. Alloys Flat Spot

    Just had to change the Tyres and found that 1 of the alloys has a flat area on the inside of the wheel. The dealer says that it was not there when the car was sold to me last year:-o:-o. How much will it cost to get it repaired?:censored: Where in Scotland can i get it done?

    Flat spot at 1800 RPM?

    Is it common for there to be a flat spot on the PD130 engine at around 1700RPM? I've changed gear a few times and noticed the engine seems to stutter slightly, a little like it's misfiring. Not got VAG Com so can't check for any error codes.

  12. How to spot xenons

    Sorry if this sounds like a really dumb question :redface: What's the easiest way to tell if a Leon has xenon's. apart from asking someone! Can you tell from just looking at the headlights, do you need to turn them on? Never had a car with them before so I don't know what I should be...

    Rust spot on my new Leon!!

    I've just discovered a previously unnoticed deep scratch on the boot hatch of my new 55 Leon which, after a few weeks of lovely road salt, has started turning alarmingly rusty!

  20. Flat spot around 3krpm

    Hey Chaps. The car seems to boost fine usually, and this is NOT an intermittent problem. From about 3 to 3.5krpm the car accelerates, but doesn't seem to boost as much or as with as much force before or after this range. It's not a massive drop, but it is noticable. As when you floor it...
