    New toy on new shoes.
    Has a few tricks up its sleeve too:cool:

    Gives the S3 something to think about in the looks and grunt dept....

    cheers

    Superb. I still love old Golfs. I had a couple of MK1 GTI's and a mk2 GTI In the past. Great cars

    was never a Oak green fan , Lhasa green we are talking :yum:

    However that interior looks rather smart and it does sit nice , well done nice purchase.

    1.8T or 2.0T under bonnet ?

    Looks a tidy machine, not a fan of boak green myself but each to their own.
    How does it handle with the big 6 up front?
    I get more compliments about my MK2 than my S3 lol.

    I like most of the MK2 colours but Oak and Bright blue metallic are my favourites so when an oaky came up local in this condition and spec then resistance was futile.

    It handles excellent, really does, even on JOM coils which I understand are at the cheaper end.
    I dare say a stock lump, ABF or 18T for that matter, will return better lap times but for pure fun, the delivery and noise from the VR is epic.

    Know what you mean about the head turning effect of an old Golf.

    cheers

    Good spot, Lenso BSX.

    Easier to source and MUCH cheaper than BBS. Good finish too bearing in mind they less than half the price.
    BBS RS would be nice but couldn't bring myself to 60% of the price of a 23yr old the car on wheels!

    Yeah that interior goes incredibly well with the green. I'm super jealous.

    Good idea Nige. He should get a piccie of himself in his VW mankini and display it as his signature obviously adhering to the size regs.

    Haven`t worn one since I was arrested for doing handstands in my Black & White number outside St James Park.

    Was road testing for a new Sports Direct summer range so got away with a fine.

    Mine is pearl grey.
    The S3 is boring in comparison.
    I'm hoping to ABF it over the winter.
