Cabriolet Owners Club
Dorset Dub Club
If your club is interested in becoming an Association of British VW Club member please use the Contact form, thank you.
Wow what can we say apart from a huge thank you to everyone that come along, took part or was involved in supporting the show we pretty much were at capacity and feel on the whole it went rather well.
We always have little things we could do better and will look to improve but the ABVWC welcomes anybody who wants to get involved as we are pretty much a skeleton crew and could always do with judges or marshals but roll on 2020.

This oil guide summarizes the variety of oil grades available to classic VW owners, and users, for certain climate conditions and kinds of usage.
In light of climate change and the extremes of temperature we experience in the UK, it may be worth considering changing the type of oil you use. Another factor is whether your vehicle is driven regularly in heavy traffic or on the motorway – travelling to and from events, for instance. Modern E10-E85 petrol can make your engine run hotter; the higher API number means the oil is more stable and is less prone to break down at higher temperatures; SN (or ILSAC GF-5) oils being best suited for Ethanol. After all, engine oil is also a cooling medium in both air-cooled and water-cooled engines. Thus, it is important to carry out regular oil changes, even with high performance synthetic oil, and keep the level topped up to just under the maximum level, which will help to minimise oil consumption.
