That looks great, the paintwork is fantastic!!

How are the jom's? I'm debating yay or nay. I like the look and increase in handling capabilities but on the other hand don't want to spoil the originality of the car or ruin the comfort.

Are the handling benefits a good trade off and did you use spacers too?

Well this is the first time I've really started playing with a car so can't compare to anything else. 15mm hubcentric spacers have been fitted as well. Steering is nice and light more direct still deciding on the height I have to think more as I'm driving to miss the pot holes but in all I'm pleased with the result and the cost.

Cheers, the alloys came with the car no idea what they are. Paint work does clean up nicely it's only when u get close that's there is a few blemishes. What model scirocco do you own?

You've just got to go for them when they come up, good ones are hard to come by.

I was very luck, I wasn't even looking for it and it just popped up in my eBay, linked to golf MK2's. saw it and had to have it.

Not looked back and exceeded all expectations tenfold!!!

Yeah they are awesome cars I've owned a few toys over the years but this is definitely a keeper. Mine appeared on autotrader then quickly disappeared. Then reappeared 6/12 later at the perfect point when I had the money to spend.
