Someday it will be ready to ride.
We are on finish line with my 2.5 Rocco. I had the 1st ride on it last Saturday. But have done no photos at all.
But I bought one more Scirocco. It will be for winter and kind of Alltrack thing ))) There will no lift, but stock suspension for winter.
Its was a big turbo project, but previous owner didn't have strong nerves as needed. So he sold everything from car and bought a lot of chip ****. So its now front wheel drive, 1.8T, k04, in Lapiz Blue color of VW Golf 7R.
I'll make 1.8 + ihi from audi TT + dq250 awd + haldex4 + almost stock everything. Normal 300hp awd car for winter.
But I don't know weather it will be interesting to read about this project or not. And I don't need one more thread for sure.
Yesterday I was on carwash with Poseidon the first time since May 2017. 2017 have been really has period in my life. This week there is 4th anniversary with my car. My friend. not hobby ))
Car is not finished finally but we need to not much. now its absolutely stable and cars to Norway and back again )) Current mileage is 3300km
Some photos I've made this morning.

What an awesome build! Just read through the whole thing lol. Unfortunately this forum is mostly US based and we didn't get the scirocco here so there isn't much traffic. Thank you for finishing the thread though and not leaving us hanging, for those of us that are reading.
Couple of questions, how come you wanted to keep the 240 KM/h cluster with the white and black screen? Just preference?
Thankfully I get to admire these cars when I visit home, in Romania. In the mean time I drive my VW CC here in the U.S.
I will definitely keep an eye out for updates, but until then congratulations on such an awesome and unique build!

If you look at color and 3d color clusters you'll see its like Siemens S55 and S65 ages ago. B/W more accurate and minimalistic with the same info in it. I prefer thing to do something. Color do nothing and its not beautiful in these clusters.
Btw, this was the best build thread and most interesting one that I've read through so thank you for posting on here as well! Also enjoyed the road trip pictures as I enjoy road trips a lot as well.

long long time has gone since last update. Last Wednesday Scirocco was looking like this.
We wanted to finish all the problems of the car. Literally.
32 points we had in a list. 29 finished a bit more new was found.
Each last Saturday of May we have VW Festival near Moscow. So we had 3 day to finish. Successful ))
Saturday morning photos
A bit photos after festival.
May be some day I'll write final spec list
Greetings from Denmark
