When my daughter bought her mk2 as a project to work on, I really liked it and it was something different to the golf, which seemed to be more popular. I had a Leon Cupra before this and I knew when it was time to get rid I had to have a white scirocco r to match!

Hello everyone. My real name is David. I joined last November when I bought my first Mk2 Scirocco, a 1991 GTII Auto. It has needed a bit of work to get it running reasonably well and there are still some things to do. It has 85k on the clock and has had 16 previous owners. I think it may have been passed on frequently because of on-going fuelling problems, now hopefully sorted.

Work done so far: new fuel filler neck and fuel filter, overhauled air intake and vacuum hoses, second-hand replacement rear wiper motor, new set of correct OEM wheel nuts, replaced rear boot lock seal.

Work to do soon: oil, coolant and ATF changes, replace rear brake drums (one wheel nut won't torque properly), replace ProSport coilovers with something more nearly OEM.

A couple of pics below.

Great forum BTW. I've already made use of some of the wealth of information here.

Hi James,

No, sorry, rural Gloucestershire. And it’s been shut away in a garage for months but out again for the first time since its MOT in June as I’ve got a rare weekend all to myself. 🙂

Hi to all.
I have a 90' Tornado red scala injection as my daily driver. I'm in my 13th year of ownership of this one and have run scirocco's for last 20+ years.
I was a member of a scirocco forum many years ago but can't remember the name of it or my former screen name..
I'm located in South Birmingham & spot the odd mk2 now & then.

Welcome kernobograt, power steering was never offered on the UK Scirocco, try adding a couple of psi to the front tyres and don’t even bother trying to turn the steering wheel until you start to roll...
It saves money on gym membership with the workout you get driving the car :-D
