    Angry Are they joking?

    I put my 3.2 V6 Gsi into Sherwoods Vx in Darlington on tuesday morning for a full service,cambelt change and thermostat change and guess what.............they've still got it!
    Apparently they have had to back order the seal for the thermostat from Germany as there are none in the UK.Could this be true?
    Call me paranoid but i'm starting to think something could have happened to my car.

    I would'nt worry the cambelt change is a days work in itself. If something happened to the car they would probably tell you. Im like you though it would get me thinking allsorts of horrors lol.

    i know how you feel , i had a mini cooper had it 2 days and i took it back because if the clutch and it took them 2 weeks to fit a new clutch due to them having to order it and having to get a gearbox seal, i was on the phone after the 3rd day of droping if off i was asking loads of questions why it took this long, if theres any probs i think they will sort it for you tho

    According to TIS (which i know how to use) a Z32SE engine timing belt takes 2 hours, when you click all the additional times which apply to the Z32SE the total time equals 3.8 hours. Thats just under 4 hours and for a garage to work on what i see as one of the more rare engines in the range which most dealerships dont see very often (some dont even think it exists) this would take as good as a shift to compete.

    I tried to put the OP's mind at rest about his car i dont understand why it then turns into a game where someone goes and pulls out there TIS just to try and make me look like a knob. Its happening more and more on here and its becoming a bit of a joke people trying to go one up on each other.
