    She's looking a bit grubby in this pic which was taken this weekend at the southern mini show (hence my mates mini beside her) but you get the idea. She's 24 years old, only 3 owners and 72,000 genuine miles!

    Mike.
    Looks very tidy mate (from what i can see) - and not a patch of rush I bet

    VW Passat 1.9tdi with power convertor plus upgraded MSU breather kit giving a little more edge over standard hehe very economical 60+ MPG. Would love to spend a bit on shoehorning V6 tdi into it with low profiles, uprated suspension and brembo brakes plus a good paint job.

    I drive a 1998 Holden Vectra (Known in England as a Vauxhall Vectra GSI 2.5 V6) I have lowered it with performance springs, swapped out the standard alloys with 17" mags and fitted performance tires. Economy isn't fantastic but it isn't slow either.

    Hate to break it to ya but there isnt a big market in Passat Modding there, its Golf Modding thats the in thing. Fine there is some and Awsome GTI have done bits and bobs but if you want to do that amount of work i'd get a Golf. But please what ever you do, can you do it tastefully OR ELSE THIS HAPPENS:

    Nothing as yet, and to say that the Log Book says its Black as its colour, well it looks more like mud brown at present so won't be having an PR Arty shots at present, but one day. But its all standard, got the usual BBS GTI Alloys that the MK4 had, red and black GTI Sports Seats, leather bits and bats, dark wood trim, smoked rear GTI Lights etc etc.

    Re: Edugeekers and Their Cars

    Anyone want a fecking Citroen?

    Last night, as I left the theatre I was parked facing a wall. Lights on, back out, two sets of beams. Travel a mile or so, up to main beam on a rural A road, all OK. Dip for an on-coming car; "Cor, why has it gone so dark?" Ahh, I've lost the off side dip lamp. On with the fogs, and drive the next 5 miles home.

    Next day, go to change it. I've got spares, and the handbook; how hard can it be? The book says "Take off rear cover, remove either the main, or dip lamp, and replace."

    The offside lamp cluster is immediately in front of the engine management thingy, which is in a plastic bucket arrangement, and under some hot pipes. OK, the bucket must be removable, surely you should be able do this at the road side!

    Like hell; you need a long reach socket set to get the bucket out and all my tools are at work!

    The nearside fitting is marginally easier, all you would have to do is take the battery out.

    Grrr!!

    Try a MK4 golf you have to take the entire front of the car off if u do it the "easy" way, but if youhave long fingers that are tripple joined you can sometimes get away without

    Re: Edugeekers and Their Cars

    My dad's taken the corner off the battery box with a hacksaw to make changing the bulbs on mum's focus easier.


    Rover 75s are awfull too, the left hand bulbs involve taking the front wheel off and going in through the arch, and if you have aircon there's a nice refrigiration pipe in the way...


    My metro on the other hand still takes H4 halogens with but a small clip to hold them

    I have just joined Kris in owning an Alfa, a 146 1.8 Twinspark. Alfas are a bit like a *nix distro, takes a bit of tweaking to get it going 100%, but it's glorious when it does

    (only pain is that when the engine is at it's most glorious, your drinking fuel at a similar rate to a 747...)
