You need to speak to Mr T at The Grotto - I'm sure he'll do you a good deal.

Well it's been a long time since I did anything with the poor pink, it's moved house a couple of times with me and generally been forgotten as I've been playing the power game with a very orange s3 however I do miss the scirocco and its charm . I don't think it will be back this year but I'm pencilling in spring 2017 as its return , trouble is its what to do . Return to standard or modify subtly with nice engine , wheels , high end coilovers ( after the shocking eBay specials I ruined the cars ride with) , get friend to paint or rococo grotto to sort etc ......
It's all will come apparent as the year goes on

As a lot of you know pink is now back on the road in a worse state than I ever wanted her to get but life and stuff get in the way , looking forward to bringing here to national day next sat , hopefully you will forgive me for neglecting her, the picture makes her look better than she currently is

Fitted my dreadnought rear parcel shelf hinges as my old plastic ones had broken , it’s good to have a parcel working again properly !

Well lockdown has got me doing bits on old pink again , she was mot’d day before lockdown( I plan stuff so well) the plan is to run over the summer , change the suspension for something back friendly!!!
So far I’ve mended the broken glove box , cleaned and clayed the car , refitted gti front headlights and fit a slightly bigger momo 300mm team steering wheel, defo need to get bodywork sorted in next year or so as it’s about ready ( best save )!!
