Right heres the new'un...

She a 51 plate ex AA 2.5 TDI 102bhp but it may have been played with by the AA, 140k and yep she's yellow but the bottom isn't green it's been painted black..
5 seats with belts.
gay wheels but they roll so it's all good.
black rear and side windows.
towbar.
winch.

It's a pretty straight bus tbh with you.











And some of the inside..









And the rear mounted winch.




As for plans she'll be slammed with a set of 18's.. Few other little bits and bobs for now..
Some entertainment in there for good measure i think..
Then she's gonna be painted bright orange with white stripes along the bottom of the doors and quarters maybe another pair of windows as well...Probably at the end of summer..

The interior is gonna still as is for now but will be getting a rock and roller in there.. gonna sort a screen or 2 out for the rear gonna run a WII in the rear as well that'll be great fun at the shows.. lol! lol! lol!

If you want to get it remapped I can highly reccomend John at DNA Tuning up in Stratford. He's currently doing an offer of a remap for 150 on Evvo but it depends on what your ECU number is. I know all Newbies fall into that catagory and some T4s and T5s do - not sure which ones tho as he needs the ECU number to tell.

He remapped my Bug and it made a hell of a difference and even improved my mpg! Very Happy

Coolio, yeah I'd be interested in how much the insurance goes up (or down) by bro and how much with the mods etc in compairson to classic insurance etc on the split was,as this is my main concern about going water cooled. Smile

I got a bit bored this morning so popped to the unit and wound the front end down...
