Regretfully, I'm putting up for sale My 1991 BBM MK2 S/C VR6. I've owned this car for 5 1/2 years and always said I would NEVER sell it, but with a pending house purchase it means it May well have to go as I'll have nowhere to store it. It's been off the road and stored in My garage for nearly 2 years and has been a labour of love over that time, with over £5500 spent on it.
If anyone is looking for a fantastic car with some decent mods, read on.
I'll list what I can remember now but I'm sure there will be some things I'll remember and add later.

The car is 99% finished. It runs and drives well. It will need running in for 500 miles or so and then the map checking, or remapping to suit the new engine.
Bodywise the car is good. It does need a couple of bits doing, as you would expect for a 20 year old car. The rear VW badge has at some point been smoothed over and will need doing again as it's cracked. There's a tiny bit of paint come off the o/s/r arch and a small parking dent in the drivers door. I've ben quoted £200 max to have all the work done at a reputable local bodyshop so not the end of the world. The rest of the body is great and it shines up well.
The sunroof has had a tilt and slide conversion at some point but it's now broken. Included though, is a very good standard sunroof in BBM to match the car. Just needs fitting.
Obviously the engine needs to be run in. I can incude 10 litres of VW Quantam oil which is what it is running on now. Once mapped, expected BHP should be around the 280 mark or more so will be a quick car.
The car is declared sorn as it's been a bit of a project for nearly 2 years and has no tax or MOT. I can't see it needing much, everything is new and it's never failed an MOT in the 5 years I've had it!
It comes with the most huge comprehensive service records and piles of receipts etc. A whole box file full.
So there you have it! MY pride and joy up for the taking and to be honest I'm gutted, but needs must and I'll definately be back in a MK2 in the future!
Due to the spec of the car and the money I've spent (Over 5.5k not including the car) I'm asking £5000, and I'm not open to offers.
I can sell the car without the charger but I would want at least £3500 and I would need a standard obd1 ecu.
I know this may seem steep to some people but that's what I want for My baby it and it's worth every penny.
Included with the car will also be lots of VR6 engine spares if needed
May take a P/X for something cheaper or interesting for a friend. Try Me
