The spark plugs and upping the idle has made it normal ish but i think itll be a sensor issue as others have suggested. Not got any back sears so on the hunt to rebuild the back of the car

went round with the boiled lind seed oil

spent most the day driving it about as it was sunny and the rest of the weekend wont be. people react better to this car than the polo, give you a wave or drop the window to hear it go past
 
planning to fit my 272 cam with a gt pulley as this is the old style cam that sits through the pulley.
 
the car needs a good going over with detailing producuts to bring the paint and plastics up

Those are scirocco frames with mk4 polo foam and fabric ontop, look ok but dont really fit

I swapped them out for some polo gt seats. On the hunt for a blue and green rear bench to match

There's a storm leather interior on eBay at moment, get that and dye black if you can't track any of the original striped material.
Corrado seats bolt straight in too btw.

Ive got some green and blue scirocco gt seats in my polo but need a matching rear bench

The original seats were white leather/ fabric with red and grey stripe. Still have the covers to go on the other seats

I fixed the gear lever problem but noticed a new noise coming from the engine, possibly water pump and a constant whine, possibly thrust bearing

Not that they are related but if it is gearbox the its possible
