I must know about half a dozen people who have had DSG VAG cars.
Every one of them had to sell it cheap or face a daft bill for a new gearbox at about 100-150k miles.
Probably fine if you're going to buy it new and not rack up the miles, but a manual or conventional slushbox are the only options durable enough to take a car into high mileage.
You might well bet bored with the way it drives before the gearbox dies, mind. ;)
I  shall be quite happily bored if mine lasts for another few years Kevin.  :y
Bored with how a Passat drives, not an Omega... ;)
I,m with ya now. :y

A quarter of the people working on the HS2 project earn over 100,000 p.a. Its the perfect and almost literal example of a gravy train.  ::)
All it will do is make life a little easier for people who live in the midlands and want to work in London. No-one is going to live in London and work in Birmingham. There is no possible reason to do that.
We will only know long after its finished how much the actual cost is, but the many many billions spent on it could be used for so many other sensible things in the national interest.
I just hope we soon get a Govt. with the balls to cancel it before its too late. I wont hold my breath though.

It can be tricky to separate the thermostat from the pipe, it's a casting and quite cheap.

I expect you have read that the front ram opens at 3400rpm, and the plenum ram is open at idle ( certainly on earlier models with the idle control valve), then closed until 4100rpm, when it opens again. I do not know at what rpm the 'fly by wire' Omega rams open, prpbably the same at high revs, but the plenum ram  closed at idle.

Do the XF and XJ have towbar options?

2000kgs for the xf I tnk

But petrols hard to come by. Although XJ supercharged would be nice option, big space for LPG.

I'm not sure I could base a decision on car ownership, based on what it needs to do for just few weeks a year.

Not a peep since. Can't get a response at all now.  self-abusers. Can't decide if simply incompetent or crooks.

Either way, ATP defo another one to avoid in the future.
