Additional Information:

Righto, I've thought long and hard about this decision but I've come across another car I want and this has to go to make it happen. I've owned this car for nearly two years and fixed it up a little bit however it is far from perfect. Don't let that put you off however as its a perfectly usable daily classic car that's a little rough around the edges.

The car itself is nice and solid underneath, I've sorted a few of the small surface scabs out on the car with the view of getting it a full respray but it should be good for a little while longer. The engine pulls well and doesn't smoke (head rebuilt in April of last year) and surprisingly quick. The car was converted from new so its only ever been a 2.0 8v DX engine and still surprises a few people. This is also the only known scirocco with a RE2000 8V conversion in it, making it quite rare amongst sciroccos.

The conversion comprises of:

Tuftrided EN 24 crankshaft of 94.5 mm stroke

Specially machined cylinder block with 82mm bore

Lead-indium heavy duty crankshaft bearings

Alloy autothermic pistons

Gasflowed cylinder head with enlarged port diameters

Gasflowed inlet and exhaust manifolds

Reprofiled inlet and exhaust valve seats

42 mm inlet valves

35 mm exhaust valves

Selected valve springs

Sports camshaft (276 degree period)

Modified distributor

Modified injection system

All resulting in 152 hp up from 112.

Other bits I've sorted during my ownership:

Nightbreaker Headlamp bulbs
Pressed plates
Stainless backbox
AP racing coilovers with only around 1000 miles on them (basically rebranded Weitec Hi-con GT's, ride very well)
Front brakes and bearings done last April
Head skimmed, new valve stem seals and guides April last year, oil change and filter done at same time
New plugs, dizzy cap, rotor arm and leads July/August last year
Smoked indicators on the front (side repeaters were already on the car)
Will come with the spares I've got including front grill, various badges, full set of switches (headlights/hazards) and glass

Bad bits:

Its quite faded paint wise (standard Tornado Red issue) bonnet and roof are worst offenders, however its a good ten yard car and now I've sorted some of the surface bits and painted them red it looks much better. Obviously was working towards getting it repainted (Ant from Rust Republic has seen the car twice and done a rough quote of £2k for respray).

Both outer CV's have split boots, if I get time I'll replace them else I'll include the two brand new CV joints I've got for it.

Both lower fogs are cracked but was sourcing some hella covers for these.

The cable for the temperature on the heater panel is broken, its never bothered me much as I just reach in the engine bay and move the valve but it will come with replacement cables.

One small rip in the drivers bolster, was there when I bought the car two years ago and hasn't really got any worse

Other Details:

The car will be sold on silver snowflakes with decent 185/60/14 tyres, for an extra £150 I can include some black multispokes I was going to run this year whilst I refurbished my Compomotives

Just like to say that due to a change in circumstances I can't go ahead with this, nothing wrong with the car as far as I was concerned.

I had spoken to Jon a few times and others who had seen the car, I was basically planning to buy it if everything matched up to descriptions.
