Merry Christmas guys.
Some pics of it out and about. Don’t look too close as it’s pants but better than it was. Also can’t actually believe it’s higher roof to roof than the T5 Image

Oh god yeah lol. Loads. Still got all the interior to sort out, audio install, finish polishing the outside up and detailing it, lining all the fit and finish, new wheels, air suspension, brakes and also considering swapping 2.0 TFSi and dsg out of the wife’s mk5 gti
