But actually being completely useless if you actually have an old vw.

Their adds use the feature split screen vans, their old golfs were used in adverts for their new ones, they are still selling a retro styled new beetle.

You even go into the showroom and there are camper can models and a split screen styles children's play tent,

Yet try and buy somehing as simple as a light switch for a mk2 golf an they'll shrug their shoulders and tell you it's been out of stock since 2003.





Too many old sheds.

Maybe now that Porsche are part of VAG, they'll start doing what Porsche have over recent years? Producing parts which were discontinued decades ago.

And charging the earth for them :lol:

Volkswagen have a classic cars parts centre in Germany. Online only in UK.
Click on access with prior registration. Golf 2 headlight switches start with part no. 191941531.. Plenty avaialble. Just gotta jump through a couple of hoops...

and also Audi

Mercedes-Benz have done it for years where you can buy any part from any car of any year - but as the Porsche people are finding sometimes the free market is a good thing.

There is nothing more expensive than a cheap Mercedes


If you don't look back after parking your car, you didn't buy the right one
