    Oh I believe it! That's how Chermans make FKSBs mate, I swear at the fuckers who design them everyday. They are distilled stoopid

    @Pengy you tried Utubing it? Sometimes there's a few answers there.
    Had an A3 that was quite good. Did most to tat but not the starter sorry.

    Think our problem is we think we can fix it when most manufacturers these days design them to only last as long as the warranty.
    Then you can't get the parts our if you can you need to be a brain surgeon to fix it. Our it's designed in such a way that you can't get to it.
    Who and don't get me started on electric hand brakes
