Thanks for the feedback guys, yep its a new roof

My only concern was going 17 inch, can this still be considered Euro?

Will take more pics today..

The car is running a 1800 MP9 motor, motor was completley redone a month ago from pistons up to all gaskets being replaced.

Running a 40mm drop, but would like to go coilovers soon.

Runs like a dream now.

The roof cost 6K bud...

A friend of mine working at lenz VW told me about this car, showed me pics. Really awesome cars he had.
But I find it a waste buying a car, having it your entire life time and hardly using it.....

oh well one mans loss another mans gain.....

i wonder what other cars he had :evil:
i think 100k for it is madness i will never pay so much


It was an almost brand new car. Definately worth it. The collectors pay the price.
I had an offer of that for my one. And mine has been used a lot.
