20 Years powered by RBS
« on: May 10, 2022, 12:22:22 am »
As mentioned in my Edition 30 topic, I bought a sweet “20 Years” mk3 GTI 16V❤️
I’ll go on from here when I got back from Madrid to Antwerp… a 1600 km trip… and without any hiccups :happy2:👍🏻👍🏻
Put it on the Quickjacks and give it a good inspection 🙈

Next up were some new Hankook tires and an alignment, the old Pirelli’s were at their end…

Oh and it took an other + / - 1600 km under its belt👊🏻❤️👍🏻 Without any drop of oil burnt😍❤️ The only thing I saw, was that is “sweating” a bit on the oil drain plug… but hey it’s 26 years old and it covered half of Europe in one week❤️😍👍🏻
From 89.400 km to 93.000 km👍🏻

So rare to see a mk3 that clean and rust free. Enjoy it mate. I'm also dead jealous of your workshop space.

Wow - That's like a 1 year old UK car - still has engine undertray, really helps keep the engine bay clean and helps warm up a lot on the ABF.
Only spotted the front fogs in the bumper look odd to me - usually they are full silver
