So for some time i have trolled here on a regular basis as i have always loved the styling of a mk1 scirocco. Well, i wont be trolling anymore rather posting on the regular as i have finally acquired one!! I have been through 8-10 other vw's prior to getting here an the journey was great but i can see now after driving this thing that i will be here for some time to come.
Little about the car.
81 model with 153,248 on the body an right about 7k on a 2L 09A 16v swap running on Digi. I am the 4th owner an she runs strong an is a blast to drive. She had one small rust spot that has already been addressed from the previous owner. Other than that one spot.....rust free. Fee dings here an there but i'm having it PDRed. plans are winter respray!!
ceramic coated header
ported throttle body
single electric fan new
2.5" stainless Borla exhaust.
fk coil overs
all Poly Bushings
upper and lower strut braces front
upper strut brace rear
mk2 big brake conversion
usrt short shift
Most of the whole drive train has only 5000 miles on it and is top of the line.
yellow e code lights
At the moment i have some ATS type 5's waiting to be applied. Tires should be here tomorrow so i'm hoping to have them mounted an a little lower by the weekend. There really isnt to much to address at the moment other than the dash an steering column bearings. Also for the weekend I will be relaying the HID setup as i dont like the current way it is ran. Well enough of the blah blah blah you guys wanna see it.

it is THE best forum on here!!
I have snooped around some of the other ones to get some knowledge about other cars and there is far too much infighting and insulting.
there is no need to slam a person for asking a question.
welcome, cant wait to see the progress of this car
Nice score . Is that the original paint? Looks super clean under the hood. What paint code is that? Interior color? Keeping the tint?
My Original 1977 Scirocco is for sale: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...n-Baltimore-MD
As far as the tint goes i am undecided, i like it because it isnt really dark yet at the same time i am a huge fan of fishbowl
