Yeahs seats were cared for lol

Scirocco is great running 310 bhp at me and ran rings around much more powerful cars at last track day :)

Did you see I got another fd project car on the go now. Just starting with it. collecting bits and selling some bits on :) wont be on the road until next year then will take to some rotary meets and track days will help ke avoid binning 25 k\'s worth of vw  lol
