    Looks like a mate of mine's managed to bend his MK2 Golf, if anyone happens to have any front end bits (preferably in maroon) in the West Mids/North West England/North Wales area could they PM/email me?

    It's a long shot but I might as well start here

    Have you/he tried Edition38, Club Gti, or any local VW forums? Usually all an aladdin's cave of spare parts!

    A Merc B200SE 7speed Auto Oil Burner for me does 50mpg however I drive it and I got me a Pug107 2tronic Auto for when I have to go into town (man thats a crazy box of cogs! but what fun to drive), hopefully 0 congestion charge for the Pug in October.

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll pass it on

    On another note, WTF can't I find my balljoint seperator? Looks like I'll have to get another one, requiring another 20-mile drive to the motor factors...

    My best was a 12.8 @ 110. It was my first time at the strip though so hope to improve next time!

    Not too bad at all, I've never taken a car up the strip myself, I'd probably burn the clutch out

    I must admit i have had a varied and shocking car history. Before I came to work in the education IT environment, I wokred for a local garage who were a Jaguar, Land Rover, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Citroen fanchised dealer.

    Being a car nut, this was a dangerous place to work. I was well placed to buy cheap cars and so I did .

    In 4 1/2 years I owned the following:

    95 M Reg Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 Merit 3Dr
    00 W Reg vauxhall Corsa 1.2 Breeze 5Dr
    00 X Reg Seat Leon 1.9 TDi SE
    03 03 Discovery Td5 GS 7 Seat
    04 04 Jaguar X-Type 2.0D SE Saloon
    05 05 Mazda RX-8 230 Coupe - An awesome car. Shame a bout the fuel consumption!!!!!

    I'm currently running a 57 Reg VW Golf GT Sport 2.0TDi DSG 5Dr and last month I picked up a Rover 420 TD as a runner (A bargain for 500) to save the miles on the Golf.

    I always wanted a Jag S-Type R 4.3 V8 & 400BHP. The best fun ever Sadly I could never find one that I could aford
