What year is your scirocco?

Post by Walshy » Tue Jan 07, 2020 7:37 pm

Hi everyone
I own an early mk2 scirocco, June 1982, with only 31k on the clock.
I’m wondering if anyone in the uk has an earlier one?

Nice looking car you have there, maybe one of the earliest Mk2s on here.

I'm interested to know how you know the month it was built? Asking because mine is an early 1982 also

Both registered in April 1980, 2 days apart but in different countries.

Hi, I meant the date it was registered. It says on the V5 owners document in the UK

"Registered" as in the V5 and Belgian equivalent.

I am just interested to know how you personally know the exact dates without seeing both of our V5s :D

The. gov MOT history checker shows the exact registration date of every car if you enter the reg no, but I have a feeling Mr Brown might be referring to two of his own cars.

Just checked the MOT checker and it looks the date might not be 100% reliable - Walshy's is showing as 31 December 82 for example.
