Car still out and being used daily, I've check with the place that does my MOT and the stone chip is an MOT fail but only just so I'll be looking to fit a new screen before July next year as that's when the MOT is due, lucky it's not got any bigger since it happened.
Still not happy with how high the car is at the front even with the Eibach Lowering Springs, Bilstein Gas Shocks fitted I've still got 60mm between the top of tyre and wheel arch.
Some one mentioned the struts on the GLS Scirocco can be slightly higher than later struts, I've got about 22.5 cm between the base of the strut and the bottom of the cup which holds the spring, any one got a strut hanging around to measure the gap?
Or perhaps the Mk1 golf kit is different from the Mk1 scirocco?

Been thinking about strut risers but they won't work as there is not enough clearance under the bonnet....

I've been thinking coil overs but I can't really afford the £600 to £1000 price tag for a good set and not sure I can justify the price for just the way the car looks?
Maybe I could lower the car the old fashioned way, bricks in the scuttle area and slabs in the boot!
