Just took our new toy for its MOT (Tuv) in Germany. Good news and bad news.
Failures on lights as last owner had put blue ones in - no problem there
Cracked bumper - fail
Foglight aim - fail on one side
Failed on emmissions, on the second go the number had dropped, garage said it proberbly needs a good run to blow it out. I filled it with injector cleaner and we have a long run next week to the UK and back so hopefully it will be better. I just have a feeling it could be an intercooler pipe.
The most annoying thing is the high level brake light has some faulty LED's. Can these be fixed or is it a complete replacement job. If they can be fixed has anyone done it here?
Also patch of welding under the jacking point, is there a repair panel available.
What point do I set the foglamp aim for. I've set my beetles lights up a couple of times against the garage wall, I assume its the same but knowing the distance for setup would be really helpful.
I've ordered those thingamyjigs that go at the front of the wheelwell which have rotted through the bottom and a new bumper for 100 Euros.
Service history is sketchy and there are no receipts (wife didnt take them from last owner
). What else would you change beside timing belt and waterpump. It has an oil service about 2 months ago.
