A new mate from across the pond.
I figured I would pop in and hello. I am currently living in the flaccid penis of the US, A.K.A. Floriduh. I'm in the process of my 3rd Scirocco restoration with an 87 16V. This is my first 16V and I'm already finding it a handful. (Mainly P.O. B.S.) My background is electronics and computers but my 28 year passion had been air-cooleds. I grew up in the 70s with over 30 air-cooleds in the back yard so I guess I had little choice in my destiny. Somewhere in my teens, the Bug bit. Ive been cussing and throwing spanners ever since.

My Name is Mike D. and Im a Dub-a-holic.

Hello Chris, what year is your car as I see you have a single wiper but body kit fitted as well, is that a private plate?
