Ok so had a bit of an issue at beginning of week where car sounded like a diesel and misfiring badly and no response from pedal But then since that it’s been fine all week no issues took her for a long drive today and performed perfectly even got to test the diff lol fingers crossed everything seems ok. Will be getting her mapped as soon as I can afford it and then hopefully that will be the last of my problems now to start looking at bodywork and maybe some race inspired livery lol

Well i’ve Been a bit lax on updates haha sorry
Anyway things i’ve Done since last update

Engine is running sweet as a nut now still not had her mapped but at 270bhp it’s ok lol

She has been painted By myself on my driveway
In a strange shade of nardo grey and a black pearl pigment looks pretty nice tbh pretty happy with the outcome


Plans currently are sort out the odd little issue here and there , get interior sorted And just keep on top of the general mk2 maintainability , Remember this is my only car daily used and abused lol

Final plan is to build a r32 turbo motor later in the year and have a bit of fun
