My vr6 arrived last week, all the way from Norwich.


Offside half of chin splitter got smashed going onto the truck, but otherwise arrived unscathed.


108k, fair amount of bills and original service book. Standard apart from coilovers.


Radio was removed as part of the deal, stuck one in I had lying about for the last 10 years and fitted a new drivebelt that came with the car.

When the car arrived it had no grommet fitted below the aerial. Wee bit of silicone sealant evident.


I purchased a "2 for less than 3 quid inc delivery" aerial grommet/seals supposedly suitable for mk3 golf. When fitted it became quite obvious the claims were nonsense.


This introduced a drip into the car which a towel below the headliner was recruited to the stop the flood.


VW couldn't find a part number when i called, but i found one online and ordered the kit from them; £11


Fitted today


Part number for base seal, o-ring and nut is

Not much been happening to the vr6, mot time next month so stuff will need to be done. Been working on the Nova, and the mk2 will be this weeks jobs.

Only job done was to replace the expansion tank cap as it was goosed. Searched for the part number on ebay and got one listed for a transporter for £3 delivered lol no Vr6 tax

Washed the vr today and used it for going to a christening reception20190511_210637.jpg20190511_210711.jpg20190511_210735.jpg
