Finally back in a VW after a few years of slumming it in Vauxhall. I know.
Previously had the grey mk4 with green rs4s, silver mk4 on LM reps, and the blue a4 quattro money pit on rs6s.
Accidentally just taken ownership of this after a random text from a mate who'd just taken it in trade.
130k, leather, slightly tatty 19s and quite possibly some cheeky tuning at some point. Will be getting it checked over in the week to see just what it is I've bought!

Will hopefully get it up to the meet next week.

Cheers mate. Needs a bit of tidying, some paint, and probably lots of mechanical stuff beyond my comprehension, but it's mad as a box of frogs and I love it!

Two engine mounts had gone, exhaust snapped, wishbones, shed load of bushes, air bag issue, and decided to sort the cam follower out as nothing in the history to show it being done over 130k.
All that aside, I love it!
Still has a low rev and idle issue, so thinking pcv.
It's been neglected a bit so needs some attention.
I've missed all this
