    Took a couple of daytime pics today, just to show you lot my lates purchase. It's a pretty mint 80 Sport 2.0 8 valve, on a 1990 G plate. Its only done 110k miles, and is in amazing condition considering its 17 years old!

    It goes very well too, its still pretty tight around the corners. It is solid underneath, and there is absolutely no rust anywhere!

    I am going to keep it fairly standard, but i want to lower it a tad, as the back is too high. I might get a pair of clear front indicators for her, and a 3 spoke steering wheel. I am on the look out for an Earnst backbox for it, but they have been discontinued now.

    I only paid a few hundred for it as it had a short tax and MOT, but after giving the car a proper inspection, it won't need any more than a pair of disks and pads for its next MOT.

    I had an E reg Audi 80 1.8 Quattro not long ago, it didn't have powersteering and was parked up for over 12 months, but I rescued it from it's slow death(got it for free). It came out pretty good after a good jetwash and then a drive through a carwash for 2nd's lol, seriously no rust whatsoever. The steering was a pain though, heavy as fek, but it returned a good 30mpg average and was a good runner with 150k on the odo, sold it for £450 after 3 months LOL... was a good runabout though.
