Re: Non - dealer servicing

I'm with Matt, main dealer. For the simple reason that IF you had an issue post warranty, good will is way more likely to kick in if you've had it maintained by SEAT themselves. I doubt there'll be a huge difference in cost (I wouldn't go near Halfords or similar) but imagine a £1200 repair at 3.5 y...

Re: newbie looking for advice

We have a 2.0tdi 150 FR on 18" wheels.

I get 49,2 out of mine and that round town mileage had it 2 years 5000 on the clock no problem with. I’ve


Is there a zero missing from that 5000 figure...if so, ignore me. If not, why did you buy a diesel ?
