My little British Car...
Man I love these things. I was so close to getting one last summer. A fantastic car.
New car getting delivered tomorrow night
Will be a hell of a change going from a 950cc Hyundai Getz to this....
Just got my first drive today....OMG when I floored it my wife went white......my face is sore with smiling
Beautiful car, no wonder your smiling, I would be be too
wow what a beauty
Getting a lot of work done. Changing every fluid, chasing down every leak. New water-pump, timing belt, cam+crank seals. Trans+diff flush. After we're in perfect running order, roll bar, new wheels/tires, brakes. My goal is for it to be track ready this fall.
Engine looks great inside. No sludge top or bottom.
I'll do shifter rebuild and new plugs/wires at home.
I wish I was technically able to do things to my car - nice one
Ha ha, me too! I work at a dealership, so the techs help me out. I wouldn't do the timing belt and seals myself. I've only replaced drive belts, plugs/wires, removed AC components. The most mechanically in-depth thing I've ever done is a valve adjustment on a motorcycle. Had to do it every 5,000 miles on my Ninja250.
I woke up one morning and brought this. Haven't collected it yet as had to get a trailer and tools and stuff. Been reading the manual and mechanics manuals. I've probably gone over board with this as a track car lol.
Totally Radical, bro!
My old girl.
I've never actually looked at this thread before and, wow, you all have some amazing cars!
Here is my Z4 3.0si Coupe:
And my E30 track car:
Here's my 99 9-3SE.
I built the 2.3T based on the 9000 Aero block, into which I 'sunk' forged internals.
It is mated to a 00 9-3 Viggen gearbox, axles and suspension with the big brake kit.
The turbo was updated to the TD04-19T along with an ETS crossflow intercooler to keep temps in check after 'squeezing'.
A 3" stainless H/P with high flow race catalyst and custom muffler exhaust the burnt stuff.
I used my BDM to offload tune and re-upload ECU bin file to stage 2.
280 hp... 295 lb/ft and a fun commute.
My Scirocco from 2009,260BHP and 411NM Torque
Ohhhh sweet you got it!. Track days are going to be quite epic.
This is very cool! We don't get the Scirocco here in the states and I have always preferred it to the Golf.
Well Colin,here in Holland its a little bit different,but also here you dont see much Scirocco’s.
The facelift models after this one are never sold here also...its quite a unique car now already.
I’ve searched quite a while for this one,because i wanted a 2.0 Liter (most are 1.4) Xenon,what most also dont have and a DSG gearbox.
And i love it,i think its a beautiful car,one of the best from VW,so im glad i managed too find this one.
I do need to get some better shots but my DD is at the front!
This is from one my rebuilds on a V12
