New-ish MK2 Owner Saying Hello.

Post by rich1068 »

Been browsing a few weeks now so thought I should say hello.

Bought this a couple of months ago. 1999 Rev5 with 54k miles. I've not really needed to do much to it other than general service stuff, I just get in it and drive it! It's not been used much prior to my ownership and every time I head out it feels like I'm blowing a few more cobwebs away. In fact I've had two runs into the Peak District this weekend and it feels better than ever. No stranger to Jap cars (Lexus and Honda) so I know how good they are compared to their contemporaries and this is no exception. A couple of jobs pending, replacement period head unit going in tomorrow (nasty touchscreen thing in atm) and pads and discs for the front from TCB.

Anyhoo, welcome to my mid-life crisis.

Thank you both.

Meant to say, did my first little mod a couple of weeks ago. Got the glass roof panels tinted so I can drive around in the sun, roof shades off and without the interior cooking me.

I'll post up the stereo tomorrow once it's in. I think you'll like it :cool1:

There's video of the unit doing its party trick. Bit large for here so I'll try to add an Imgur link when I've worked that out.

Wow beautiful!!

I’m sooooo envious I’ve had nothing but trouble with mine, including water in the system, we’ve taken the thermostat out and it seemed to work but now we’re pretty sure it’s the dread head !!


Wish I could have just bought a beauty like that !!

What would one in that condition cost ruffly ?

Thank you.

More than I intended to pay! But the way these are going in this condition and low mileage roughly on the money. I got in while I could.

I had actually seen another identical one that was a tad cheaper and was all set to view and buy but the military titled seller of usually Bavarian cars (if you know, you know) sold it to one of his mates from under me. I've since been told that I probably dodged a bullet as his cars aren't all that. Or maybe I'm just bitter? :annoyed:
