    Took Some Pictures Of My Car

    But my mates Bug got in the way (Just coudlnt post it up as is, know not everyones keen on the non-Audi posts!)

    Thought Id share this with you, not quite as fast or refined as an S3 but does go well and certainly looks different







    Its based on an Empi GTV Beetle, which was availible thru certain dealers, was like a fully loaded car with all the optional extras added on... Its gay but in a kinda cool way

    Hes got an Eriba Puck Caravan he tows with it, its basically a 1man caravan that was designed for use back in the 70s for towing by Bugs etc... I want one!


    That was with our Golfs last August BankHoliday... Ive since got him into Audis and he now and a 140 TDI 8P A3

    So yeah... Thats my random pointless post for the day

    1000000000000000000000000000000000000000x more interesting than an Audi A3/S3....

    Is that the golf in the first pic on the left? love the look of that car. That is an example of what a man can call a true pride and joy.

    Its not a blue GT by any chance is it? Seen one for sale with the Rallye Sebrings on it!

    I love the Golf to pieces, but I just dont use it (havent done since August bank holiday!)

    I hate A8s... I nearly didnt buy the car because of them. Was bad enough that it was silver when I wanted Grey, Noggy Blue or Red! Those wheels really put me off, but managed to look past them and swap for my Brocks!

    lol cars 100% original, its not worth running spacers on it realy! I quite liked having the wheels fully tucked

    There is a reason why their like that, and I cant remember what it is VW Motorsport cited for it... Totally lost interest in VWs now!

    Sebrings were standard on Rallyes, belive they were an option on the Mk2 G60s. I also ran them on my 16vt Mk2 Golf and on the Mk1 for a bit!

    The optionals for the Rallye were BBS RM012s I think

    Always liked Polo Coupes but couldnt actually live with myself if I bought one lol

    fair enough! its an achievement to own that at the age of 17! When i was 17 i was lucky enough to drive the A4 in my sig. I do miss that alot! I used to double clutch it and handbrake before taking it into corners in the wet just to try to get some sliding fun! (young and brave).

    Loving the bug matey. Here's a pic of a mate of mine's. It's fitted with an Impreza boxster engine and goes like **** off a shiney shovel! Crazy power in something that weighs as much as a tin of tuna
