Then things got worse..........
Engine was getting worse and worse, Numerous breakdowns and stuff, i thought, just get a new engine :idea:

Turned out the headgasket was naffed, bits and bobs cracked, water pump leaking and a dodgy starter motor

Couple weeks worth of browsing t'net, i come across someone selling a GTI engine. £100 for a 2.0l engine with all ancilleries and everything from the engine bay. Got some extras aswell (y)
