Re: Uprated engine mounts

Wise corrective action received: Sorry for the confusion on this. I did not make myself clear. We will send you the bolts FOC due to our mistake of not sending them originally.

Re: Help before buying S1 2+2

Hi Lual,
If you live in Spain and intend to drive the car in Spain, then why would you look at a RHD?
