Amazing looking van. Plenty food for thought there

Thanks, it has just cheap Stance+ at the moment.
I’ll upgrade when I TFSI swap it. Currently looking for a donor car.

Bought a recovery truck, don’t really know why but it has and will be handy!

The R32 has also been collected, needs a little more than TLC.

The Q7 is nearly ready for scrap, should be getting rid on Monday.

I know I only said 2 days I was on the look for a donor tfsi car but I’m having second thoughts. The van looks cool, returns good MPG and is super practical....
By the time the engine is in I can’t return the van to standard my only option to get some money back would be to break. If I don’t convert it I keep the good mpg, cheap insurance, practicality and lots more $$. I think I want a B7 RS4 Avant, with wingbacks then I’ll put wingbacks in the R32 giving me a wingback trio.
Hmmmmmm

The conversion will cost me £5k by the time it’s done properly. That’s 1/3 of a nice RS4 which should only hold/appreciate. Assets not liabilities.

Got the R32 in the air yesterday. Turns out I need 4x springs, front pads, rear discs and pads (got these), 4x tyres and a couple of CV boots.

Left it on the 20” speedlines, makes me want another of set of 19’s for the golf!
