You will need to get in plugged into vagcom a diagnostic system to determine what the issue is as it could be a number of issues
Either a member might be able to help out or a vag specialist

Well no, peed off with the price of running it. I was told today its an air/exhaust issue, could be a filter or something. I just dont know where to sell it, I dont want to use ebay, I just want to fix it and get rid of it! any ideas?

I will have to fix it and sell it here if that is possible. The new clutch alone cost me £900.00, is that normal or was I ripped off?

I have no idea, I know nothing about cars. All I know is I went to germany to see family, and one morning I started the car, and It would not get into gear, only when the engine was off, it could, not when running, when i saw the broken parts, there were two round pieces, sort of like rotating clock disks.

Clutch plate and pressure plate. Did you get an itemised bill?

In germany? I think it was a small sort of garage, I don't have a clue what it was called or anything. I am pretty lost in that department. As for the amber engine light, is there anything I can buy to see the issue myself? Like from halfords or something tomorrow? I dont know what garages are open on sundays.

If the car us running fine it will probably be something pretty simple...

Don't take it VW, just get someone off here to scan it for you and we will help get it fixed... Buy a milltek for it and then you won't want to sell it anymore

Use Google street view and zoom in on garages name.

I've done this loads of times to find names of stuff.

Good luck.

Ah, thanks guys! I appreciate it. Just out of curiosity, how much would my car be worth when I fix the parts?
It's a 2006 plate, black R32, 110540 miles on it, good condition all round, two or three scratches on the rear bumper, nothing major at all.
Any ideas?
