Re: Broke my driveshaft???

All cars I have driven in the past 20 years were company cars doing 100,000 miles + and I never had a clutch fitted to any of them, likewise the cars I have personally owned in more recent years, treated with empathy they will last (cue ChrisUK insult...)

Re: Broke my driveshaft???

Nah . I drive mine hard but with empathy, Servicing gets done more than factory schedule and on time etc etc.

I'd drive like you if I had your milage to do .

Hopefully the GP doesn't have the same problem as the mk2 and mk2b with clutches. Problem with the pressure forks getting unevenly worn and "sticky" and eventually failing with the clutch pedal getting stuck to the floor.

so far so good Chris, its on 56,600 miles now and all is still well with the DMF and operation action on it. In fact... No complaints at all!
