Desperate to get a piece of narrow width hose to fit dump valve, I went into VW dealer in Newbury today. Charged me £13 for a metre of rubber hose!!! Was going to tell 'em to shove it, but hose was split and I couldn't find anyone else who stocked it. Are they for real???

I offset the cost of the parts by drinking as much free coke as possible while waiting for the service dept to find my bits...<burp>...oh and stuffing my face with the free custard creams.

Woah! Is that really the price for these from the dealer now [:O]. Makes the one I got from Vwspeed @ £150 look a bargain. It's currently sat in the loft, so perhaps I should put it up for sale!!

Not sure of the most overpriced part from VW - most of the parts i have bought when the car is in for a service seem cheap when compared to the labour charges!!

Having said that, I thought I'd help my younger sister out recently and replace her broken wing mirror glass on her Polo 16v - £33 for mirror glass only!
