Mods, was unsure whether this would be a good idea for a thread but if it helps people to obtain those harder to find parts then it's all good? If it should be included in the Breakers link thread I'll put it in there instead [:)]

so, post your scrapyard finds here [:)]

I visited Bury VW Breakers in Altham, Lancashire which is between J7 and J8 of the M65 about 10 days ago

They had a Diamond Black front ended Bora, centre vents are still in there [;)] as well as the full Gold Net Optic trim, sport gearknob, all other trim as far as I could see

Also what looked to be a high specced Golf TDi, and a Golf 1.8t (engine removed) and even a brand new VW Fox with frontal damage

I didn't look in their stores but they have shedloads of parts for the full VAG range

Another yard on the same estate had a Reflex Silver Bora 2.0, untouched interior including the nice looking sports clocks, auto dimming mirror etc..

Next time I go I'll take camera phone pics of anything interesting

aye I will be going back maybe next weekend as the whole point of my first trip was to buy an aerial. I saw the Bora vents, bought those (?5 each) and completely forgot the aerial... doh!

I'm sure the silver Bora had some kind of Optic trim as well. I'll check it out and report back [:)]

The place usually has around 20+ mk4 based cars there, he was a bit quiet when I went as he said he'd cleared up for Xmas
