Ay up all! albino

Im VR6Midas aka Adam, I live and work in Sleaford as a Barber and I have recently accuired my second VR powered People's Car!

I've been waiting for a while now for a really nice example, but as im sure you all know they're becoming as rare as hen's teeth nowadays, this one however seemed to be waithing for me, the guy I bought it from said it was on t'internet for about 5 weeks ( Shocked !!!) before I took it away, and im so pleased I did!

It's a 1997 3-door VR6 Highline in Diamond Metallic Black with full black leather and heated pews, twin airbags, factory air-con, electric glass sunroof and factory full-closure alarm! I couldn't believe my luck when I found it, and I knew I had to have it, especially as it has only covered 72k miles!

It was a demo car for a VW Stealership daahn-saahf, so they loaded it to it's ickle gunnels with goodies! With only 3 previous custodians, its remained very straight and trouble-free, and it feels tighter than my previous car; an '02 Ford Focus ST170 (which was a HUGE bag of w*nk) which had 40k miles and was 5 years its junior!

Anyway, thats quite enough babbling for now! I hope I get to meet you all in time, and that I should be along for the meet in Hykeham, Lincoln next Sunday (18th) so whoever's there can give the old boy a good butchers Smile

Thanks guys, you all have very tasty dubs too Very Happy

Originally im from North London, but i've been up here for a few years now. Ooh, also meant to say that i've carried out and have got a few tasteful minor and major mods planned in the near future (major mods when my insurance is up in April). As far as I can remember this is what i've done so far:

- Bosch AeroTwin Retrofit Front Wipers fitted
- Budget Cone Airfilter fitted (plan to fit much better quality one in near future!)
- Lamin-X Ventureshield Headlamp protection film fitted
- New Radio Head unit installed
- '03 Bora Rubber Floor mats modified and installed (surprisingly close fit)
- '03 Bora Battery box cover modified and and fitted
- '03 Bora (yeah, as you can see there is a pattern emerging, I basically raped our old Bora for parts Very Happy) Spare Switchblade style keys retained to retro-up the bulky old key and seperate fob

I've got a set of number plate surrounds to go on, so they should be on for next weekend Razz

I've owned a few other veewubs too;

My first VW - 1999 Bora SE 1.9 TDI 110 (Diamond Met Black)
- 1995 Corrado VR6 (Moonlight Blue Pearl)
- The Aforementioned 2003 Bora SE 1.9 TDI 130 (Diamond Met Black also Very Happy)

Found a pic of the old '99 Bora



And heres a nice big colour pic of my 'Rado:)

Thanks again folks, yeh they were all pretty sweet cars, all the cars pictured but my mk3 golf remains now though so even the passat in't background of 'Rado pic has gone Sad there are only 2 dubs left on the drive now, my VR and mum's new baby '07 Golf GT Sport 2.0 TDI (the 170ps one!) Highly rapid, but doesnt have the howl of the MIGHTY VR6 Very Happy

SlimG60 - yeh i was on the corrado forum for a while actually bud, i remember seeing u, but allas the coupe has long gone, sold it to a guy in Northhampton, but it wud be nice to see it floating around again, especially as close as Meg! Smile

wayneyb - *gasp* a BMW!? The audacity! Lmao! Joking of course Very Happy i'll let u in on a little secret, i nearly bought an E36 2-door 325i of me old man, but i had to fold for the cheaper, less-powerful, better-sounding Golf VR6 dance
