    The Showroom
    I'm still using my crappy Canon powershot camera on a new tripod that I just got. I soon (maybe for christmas :lol:) will get a Canon Rebel T3I.

  6. Battle with oil seep finally taken care of...

    B5 Garage
    I have finally found the cause of my oil seep originating at the oil filter assy. The engine had the dreaded "oil sludge" issue when I purchased it a few weeks ago, low oil pressure and tons of noise from the top of the engine. I dropped the pan and cleaned the pan and pick up. The engine runs...

    Hi all, I have an oil pressure problem in my 1.8T passat, and have read loads about sludge, etc. My car is currently in a garage where the mechanic says that it will cost about £1800 to fix the car so that it is worth about £1800 (replacement engine + labour) - the numbers don't look good, eh...
