otherwise you'll be getting stopped by the feds every day or so as their ANPR devices will be going ballistic as your car trots on past them!!

9 years of fun driving ended today, the vi has gone to the scrapyard in the sky

Bottom end engine problem.
Strange engine management fault that I couldn't get to the bottom of.
Rusty rear arches and some serious corrosion in one of the roof channels.

Bought a tidy ZS.

Last pic........

Wow blast from the past.. haven't been on this forum for probably 5 years at least. Good to hear you got so long out of your car! Great to see the forums still going too.

Despite a noisy bottom end and a strange intermittent misfire it still went like a hot snot!

I probably could have sorted the engine and misfire but the rust had taken hold, I did a patch job last year on the roof channel but it really was a horrible place to weld... lots of panels all meeting together. The water that had leaked in at this point had rotted out the rear inner wheel arch.

I removed all of the good bits before it departed...

160 vvc cylinder head.
The brand new ZR160 full suspension I fitted last year.
Front discs and pads fitted two weeks ago
HID fog lights.
Sound system.
Climate control system.
Red AutoArt ABC rear lights.
Exhaust system.
Various BRM trim bits.
Emptied the petrol tank too!

The VVC head will be used on an engine build which will end up in the ZS.
