Soon to be Mk2 Owner (Still looking)

Post by SensibleInvestment » 27/12/18 20:05

Evening,

As the title suggests, I am actively looking for a Mk2 (Preferably Rev3+) to restore and potentially turn into a project car.

Hope to use the forums as a good source for finding information, but also getting involved once I have found the car I want.

Located South in the Bristol area, and consider myself a bodge of all trades having just made my own headlights, replaced interior fabrics, and modified body panels on my current daily driver. Try my best to DIY when I reasonably can.

Thanks for reading, I look forward to the future discussions.

I believe the turbo is what I'm looking for, still trying to understand all the different models and revs.

I guess my initial goal is to get a 300bhp+ mk2 that I either do myself or buy from someone, and then add my own personal touches (Don't worry, won't be the same as my profile picture).

Have always wanted a RWD car, something with a bit of power behind it, and the pop-up headlights are a huge plus.
