Its been a while. V6 content.

  V6 Mk1, Golf GTI Mk5
Afternoon all,

Its been a while since I was on here! Its great to see a good few 172/182's in the projects section getting well looked after and OEM standards being rectified. More my bag 🤓

In 2018 I went over to the Nurburgring with a good chum. I was in the process of buying my first flat so was supposed to be a possible fair well to the Clio but I quickly realised I just couldn't do it, and fell in love with her once more.

My Uncle sadly passed away, so myself, brother, cousin and my best friend done the North Coast 500 in his S-Type before it was sadly sold. Was great fun and it was a rule to dress like we were from the antique road show. I was also very fortunate to get the plate from his car which is now on the V6. Very proud of this. :)


Last year we took on part of NC500 again but cut across part of it. We essentially done the Grand Tour route. Weather was horrendous in July! really gutting.

Then got into a few local classic car shows. Would post more pictures but limited to 10!?

Owned a lovely Mk5 GTI but had to sell and currently have a VW Up! :race: all in the aim of keeping the V!

Up! was sold Then just before lockdown I was supposed to by a 'sensible' car perhaps Golf/A3 ended up buying an Elise S1. Sadly it has since been returned to the garage I bought it from, I got the car into a independent Lotus Specialist, bit of a delay due lockdown etc but the list that came back was rather scary. It came to light a good 2/3 items should have been rectified before a garage sold the car. I was hoping costs of repair would be split and I'd have a tidy S1 but it was returned. Gutting as the car had bags of character but couldn't justify spending £2k plus! on essential repairs. Learnt a lot so possibly on the hunt for another.

Technically carless at the moment so can see the V6 coming out this year. No complaints. :)

I bet a set of ph2 wheels would set this off lovely! I thought it looked odd side on, assume its a common mod and most I've seen have had bigger wheels!

Thanks for comments, seen a silver Ph1 with the bigger wheels and for some reason it doesn't work (for me) plus they are bloody expensive and rare to get a set!
