Looks clean! You got it for a good price too
Moar pictures please!
Also welcome! You came to the right place.
First pic of my 1983 Wolfsberg Scirocco
I just bought it a few weeks ago. This car had the same owner from 1985 - 2011. Now it's my turn!
I found some BNIB euro lights that are going to go on soon, then lowering, then my deep dish Eta Beta's.

Awesome car! More pictures please!
I'd love to find an unmolested Silver '83.
Op, please post in there as well!

Check the build sticker in the trunk. If you have the 1.8 JH engine with a close ratio 5 speed (2H) that's the Wolfsberg model. I also think that the leather interior was a standard option....
Here are a few more from the first weekend on the road...
I gave the car a well needed wash and did a quick Eta Beta test fit...
With the right stance I think these will look sweet. For now I'm rocking the OG 13" wheels. You can also notice the nice dent and primer fix on the door... and the rust on the rear arch. That will have to wait till spring.
Get some H and R sport springs with bilstien sport struts,and you will have a nice comfortable ride.
Marc beat me to it.
If notice there are not to many of us here with a 83 wolfsburg eddition scirocco.
preserve the history.
Huh looking closer it looks like that one was loaded from the factory.Got a/a too?

Dr.Dub is the shiz.
make shure you get the sport struts too if you dont the struts will bottom out.
I killed tokiko blues in 20k.It was horrible,my 82 has the bilstiens and are old but still good.I rode
around for a week puckering waiting for the impact but it never happened.
Wahhh,ohhhh,BAAMMMM,,,,,,M*ther F*ck'n'.........pot hole's..........

No a/c on this car.
Manual windows & steering.
Just the way I like it.
Does anyone know if you can mod the rear wiper arm to lay flat.
I remember I did it on my rabbit way back when & it looked slick.
Obviously the silly stock ride hide makes any wheel look retarded... but I was wondering how you like the Eta Beta wheels?
Yeah I like the wheel's they are unique looking.
I've been daily driving the roc since I bought it last september. I had the fuel pump die a few months ago, but otherwise it's been solid and reliable. It's amazingly 100% stock and a very addictive drive... The parts have been assembled and I'm ready to tune and tweak this scirocco!
Below is a sampling of some new parts ready to be installed soon....
zender front spoiler
full exhaust with dual manifold/high flow downpipe
h&r cup kit
upper and lower front stress bars
1991 eta beta wheels
90's alpine cassette deck with aux in mod
vintage momo wheel
kamei golf ball shifter
Gave the car it's first wash in 8 months.
I also installed my rear euro bumper! Wow, what a difference. It really transforms the cars shape. It just looks so right now. I love it. The US bumper is also super super heavy. It will be nice to loose a bit of weight along with the cosmetic upgrade.
I was planning on installing the Zender front spoiler once the car is lowered. It will cover up that little damaged spot. I think every scirocco I've seen has a similar curb dent! It's way more noticeable with the euro bumper on there now...
Does any one know the weight difference between the US and Euro bumpers? Not that it matters, but I am curious.
I need to get some rattle cans of touch up paint. (zermatt silver) Has anyone used one of the online options? Other sources?
