So I bought another R32 which was a members cars 3years ago. When the person bought it off of NickP it sat in a work shop not moving for 3 years then I got it. I drove it home form Lincoln to Leigh on sea 170 miles. Where it had been sat the stereo lost the code, popped to Halfords to get the stereo keys as there normally written on top. On the way home pulled out of a side road and the rear bolt that goes through the anti roll bar drop link rear shock absorber in to the trailing arm fell out and spun me. Lucky there was no damage. Got the car to my brother in laws work in Chelmsford https://www.pmwltd.co.uk/. So far it’s having 4 new boots, new discs and pads, brakes hoses, fully poly bushed, full fluids and filter change ( gearbox, diffs, haldex, coolant, engine) plugs, thermostat and a new rear trailing arm with new bearing and abs senor. I’m sure there will be more to add to the list.

So after replacing nearly every nut and bolt and rubber o ring I got the car back. Now drives like a dream but only one problem go fine until 4000rpm to 6000rpm it’s hesitant after that then goes again. Could this be coil packs no faults on Vcds any ideas or help appreciated.

Good work, never seen discs with those style groves? What's the advantage of them? Are you replacing the bushes yourself?

Wow get them done now if u intend to keep the car for long term.

The insides of that engine look really dark and burnt.

How often has the oil been changed in that car ??

The chains on these don't really stretch from my findings, it's the sprockets and tensioners which wear down.

 

If you're putting cams in, then it would be rude not to do the chains whist you're there, but look into replacing the VVT sprockets whilst you're there, and getrainly get the VVT housing off and check the mesh filter which feeds the oil to them. 

 

Main parts to be changed are..
- V021 109 467 TENSIONER 1.00 £27.90 EACH 
- V021 109 469 GUIDE PIECE 1.00 £4.09 EACH 
- V021 109 569 SPROCKET 1.00 £36.57 EACH 
- V03H 109 465 CHAIN 1.00 £43.82 EACH
- V03H 109 503 CHAIN 1.00 £43.82 EACH
- V03H 109 507 TENSIONER 1.00 £27.90 EACH 
- V066 109 509 A TENSIONER 1.00 £13.62 EACH 
- V066 109 570 SPROCKET 1.00 £12.03 EACH 
- VAWI 188 001 02 011824/SEAL PASTE 1.00 £42.47 EACH
- VN 104 883 02 011822/BOLT IIEX.HD.W 2.00 £1.41 EACH 
- VN 900 411 02 011824/0-RING 1.00 £0.78 EACH 
- VN 906 650 01 FLYWHEEL BOLT 10.00 £2.15 EACH

 

Although those prices are old now.

 

Might want to  look at DMF too.

Please tell me that it gets better compression test done down on all cylinders. 🤬 so head cam off all exhaust valves not seating correctly.🤬💩 now being relapped in and new stem seals it’s like a never ending money pit compared with my old one. Oh well at least it will all be new.

The head has been sent off for a skim it’s been off before but was 2mm out in some places. Just goes to show low mileage examples doing short journeys don’t help them.

Tough luck there bud. I've always thought low mileage cars , or at least ones that are low and don't get driven hard are ones to worry about
.it will be nice one it's all fixed and back together. It'll probably feel a lot more powerful no doubt if it's been like that since you've had it
