very unlucky customer is this guy

Recommended Posts

I feel sorry for this guy .

Bought a Q5 from a guy down south of us and bought it to us for a problem with it cutting out . 

Injectors were leaking , turbo was shagged , auto box jumping and many other faults we found when it was on site , 

He spent a fortune with us over a few months we even found out it had a different engine , must of been a moon miles one . 

Anyway we prompted him to sell it , which he duly did , swapped it for a Caravelle thing with the BI turbo 180 diesel , edition 25 , if you like fancy vans its a nice thing . 

This morning its in for  service , got oil light on , its a fecked engine , yes the bi turbos are shite we know , its the next best thing to a BP oil tanker disaster , oils like grey putty . 

Wants it serviced to go to France next week  oops , going to be the bearer of bed news when he collects it later .

Feel sorry for him , I really do . 

Hope he doesn't move into car trade as he cant choose a good one at all .

I had a lady who had a run of three wrong erns, I was almost tempted not to deal with her she was such a 'Joanna' 

....she had a Polo 1.2 3 pot self destruct via chain, bought another with a burnt valve, then bought another that used more oil than fuel......you'd think after two duff Polo's she had learnt her lesson.:blink:

Father is a real VW scene type and she was worried how she would tell her father she'd bought a Clio french piece of shit as her father calls them:lol:

1 was bad enough

2 needs a check up

3 she needs sectioning

Never much liked star wars but I always think of The Inbetweeners when anyone mentions Yoda.

Will saying "Fiesty one you are" during a school excursion trying to impress a girl :lol:

£2700 gets you a new BiTurbo CFCA engine form TPS, just make sure he blanks off and maps out the EGR as that the cause of the problem.
