      Marti just picked up her new Scirroco R this afternoon to replace her Polo, to say she is stoked is an understatement. We started looking at new cars for her three weeks ago and she quickly decided on the Rocco. Lucky our mate who owns a leasing company was able to find one just arrived in the country in the spec she wanted and she drove it off the lot this afternoon.

      A couple of pics of her picking the car up and huge thanks to Graeme86 for going with her and checking everything over on the car.





      Cheers Al

      Not mine guys I have the porker its Marti's ride but I'll let her know you give it your collective

      I've only just been allowed to have a drive of it, not sure whether I like the DSG but she loves it so that's what matters :-) I have ordered her some VW Racing lowering springs from Ian at Rennenhaus she just found out about but I had to do it, it just sits too high

      Cheers Al

      That second pic looks as though it was taken by Wayne.

      She won't be having the wheels done as it is a two year lease so we wont be keeping it that long and too much hassle to return to stock. Though if we were it wouldn't be black more likely anthracite or gun metal grey as the black you just lose the wheel.

      Cheers Al
