It's been some time since i've posted on here, so I thought it was about time I put some pics up. I've just got back from a week in Inverness, so I've got loads of scenic pics I wanted to show. With regard the TDI, the mileage gets ever higher but she goes better and smoother than ever.

I've decided to get shot of all my cosmetic non functional mods, so the Santas went the ebay way last month. Montreal 1s may not be pretty, but they are purposeful and are the original rims on my car (not to mention a total bargain at ?85 inc 2 good Primacys!). The car returns better mpg and is a little quicker with smaller and lighter wheels and tyres.

(I'm selling a few other OEM desirable bits inc R-line pedals, steering wheel & g/knob, floppy wipers, A4/fabia rear) - see classifieds. All this is to aid ongoing mk2 16v restoration....

Anyway, bear the numbers in first pic in mind when looking at the car!

Nice pictures and the milegae doesn't even show. Are you planning on running it into the ground ? I did that with a previous Mondeo, got it with 70k and sold it with 136k and it was only 5 and a bit years old. Providing you change the oil cars will run forever. Oh and the mondeo was a petrol, all it needed was 2 new rear shocks, everything else was original

Looks great mate and considering the mileage you have done it's not showing it's age at all imo

Have to say that i prefer the look with the Santa's as they just really suit the MK4 especially red ones imo, but i had Monty 1's on my old 1.8T and there is 'something' about them that just looks so right and oem if you know what i mean....

Lovely car and i'm very jealous of your xenons... [:p][:D]

Hi Rich,

your car still looks good on the Monty's. There is something about your car that has always made me fond of it.

Nice pics at Goodwood, how did you get so close to the track gate? I assume it was more than just a visit? I love that place.

Cheers for the comments guys.

@ Marc - I just drove into the track. The perimeter track is usually always open to the public to allow access to the flying club. There's often some good viewing on track days.

Wow - excellent pics there mate, lovely composition.

Car looks soooo good, its hard to believe its done all those miles, you're doing a superb job looking after her, the age doesn't show one bit, looks as good as any other with hardly any mileage on.

Good work fella [Y]

Such a shame you sold the Santas, pretty much the ideal mkiv IMO, great colour, wheels, economy and xenons.

Thumbs up!
