Can anyone suggest a very very good repair shop in the London area.
The car is a VW Golf 1.4 TSI GT Sports.

If no suggestions for the London area the car is in Chelmsford at the moment, did speak with 2 specialist but they so busy, the sooner I get it sorted the better.
Many Thanx in advance :thumbs:

^^^^ Sojah: hi-sorry for hijacking your thread. Clearly from my location I'm unable to answer your question but given your unfortunate experience, can you please tell me if the Golf TSI engine is "free-running" - what happens to this motor when the timing belt (chain?) breaks/slips?

If by "free running" you mean there's no possibility of valves and pistons trying to occupy the same space no matter how badly out of time the cams(s) are, I doubt any modern engine is.
