    Hi and welcome Michael, like the story although I'm safeguarded against this. My wife has her own car, a VW Eos coupe convertible. Nice.... but not a Z.

    Tony.

    Damn it! Waterpump broke while driving in north Germany. Repair shop needs spareparts from 4 hours away, then an hour to repair and I have 600km to drive home.

    Hi and welcome hope you are on your way soon.
    Gaz knows about water pumps so check his posts might be worth changing the viscous fan coupling when you are back home.

    For the water pump you will read enough on the forum, but you have to understand that the water pump broked in the best place: nowhere in the world you could fix it in 5 hours and 195 EUR!:wideyed:
    Drive safe,:)
