  1. Not been on here for a while. Been having a few dramas at home. Anyway, as a result it's looking like I may have to part with the VR. I really REALLY don't want to.

The first proper project build I did was this: Built from a bare shell in about 1999, with a 2.0 8v with loads of uprated bits. It made 167bhp, which was really quick in its day (probably used more fuel than a VR though!) Since then I've had a few MK3's, loads of MK2's Corrados, a bullnose Passat, to name a few. Anyway, fast forward a few years, and I now have a house, Mrs , and kids. About a year ago I got offered my dream job as a technician at PS
