I know its a bit of a spin-off from the "You know you have a mk4 when..."-thread, but has your mk4 decided to do anything of its own accord today?

Mine decided to attempt to shed its undertray coming down a hill that can be a PITA at the best of times (Detling Hill, for the local peeps). Cue horrible scraping sound that had me worrying something rotten.

Mine decided to heal itself!

Turbo decided to stop working yesterday after I booted it going up the motorway slip road, and it went into limp mode. This morning, it's right as rain!

I have the worlds first self-healing car! I'm hoping it will put itself through an MOT next...

Turning the ignition off and on again clears the limp mode until next time it is triggered......

So let me make sure I've got this straight...

I haven't got a self-healing car?

Mine has decided to munch its camshaft again.. This was replaced about 40k ago using only vw parts.Its also serviced every 5k using Pd specific oil....Dont think I will have it much longer...

Also remote locking only opens one door now.. Getting fed up with it....

Apparently the camshafts for 150's are made of chocolate.

Sorry for the seeming pi55-take mate, no malice intended.

I remember reading an thread about the shafts on 150's being somewhat... prone to failure, while I was looking for my car late last year. The person in question ended up buying an uprated/sports camshaft for piece of mind.
