I had it from 3 years old to 6 years old.

Bought from VW Warrington by a guy waiting on his R32 to arrive, Pete owned it from a few months old to 3 years. I had it till 6 when Ollie bought it, he sold it on to a chap who's name escapes me and used to keep in touch to tell me he was looking after it, and I assume you got it off him?

It had in my time:

Koni FSDs and Eibachs
H&R rear ARB
New brakes
All boost hoses replaced & EGR delete
Revo @185hp/300lbft
The wheels done in the custom chrome powdercoat
Genuine US Anni red badges and rabbit.
Lots of misc. bits and bobs.

Oddly enough, I found my photocopies of all the history file t'other day and thought I'd not see it around for a while.

Never missed a beat, nothing ever broke - in short a brilliant car that I still miss. I even still have the plate on retention.

Look after it. [Y]

Bugger, that's a shame, but I suppose others have had them go a lot sooner.

I'll look forward to hearing how it goes with the new set up, Mike will have it spot on in no time, I don't trust anyone else with my cars. Let me know when you're going and I'll pop in to see it [Y]

Had a MKV GTI for a few years and have a Clio RS200 now. I do a lot of track days and Ring trips, the Clio is much better suited to it, costs half to run and is just as quick.
