Well after 5 years and 100,000 Miles my gear box and clutch have finally died due to the dodgey rivets (i suspect)

So a few of the final pictures before everything went wrong :(

Started to strip the main bits that i can sell on off it, wheels, lights, etc then she will be sold spares or (hopefully) repair

Enjoy :)

p.s if anyone wants any bits just shout :)

I got a gear box in a car I am currently breaking.its a genuine 60k from new by one elderly gent.His daughter forgot to check the oil and fecked the engine.It seems such a shame to break your car for spares..

If it was mine mate I would fix it, If the car is apart from clutch and gearbox in good shape, which it looks to be it's got to be worth fixing. I assume the clutch is the original, so 100 000 miles on one clutch, that's just wear and tear, so really the only thing wrong with it is the gearbox. 1 low mileage gearbox and new clutch - one working car
it's not dead yet!

Looks like a nice car.

I would price up to see if you can fix the gearbox and clutch as it seems such a shame.

I'm gutted for you mate.

Could still repair it though? If not look for a nice 1.8t or TDI and transfer some of the mods over if you can?

How much would you sell that stubby aerial for just out of curiousity?
