Re: Ebay again

Good point. I assumed that it was a manufacturers local plate, because Oz had a lot of CKD didn't it?

The tunnel, etc look original.

Re: The LRO Peterborough Show 14-15th September 2019

Nice! Just thought I would link the images :) Interesting repairs to the wing tops. I have noticed that my stage one bonnet is eating through the metal.

I do like where he has put his compressor though. I hadn't thought of that. In mine, that is an internally accessed cubby box.

Re: Rebuild Queries

As Map said, some have converted to parabolics and say they're the bees knees, others have converted back to standard because they disliked the bounce, etc. One thing is certain, when you break a top spring with standard springs, you can keep driving ;) Another question often asked is "should I use ...

Re: New owner

Hi,

Welcome aboard. Yup, post pics.

No such thing as stupid questions. The more stay on the road, the better, and there are a few quirks on these.

Re: Stage 1 TDi Station Wagon
