I had a Cosworth.
I swapped a D reg GTi for it. It belonged to a mate who lived in
Tooting and insurance was ridiculous. I joking offered to swap my GTi for it and I was really shocked when he agreed! I didn't put a lot of miles on it though, it's possibly ten years old in that pic and the body is still pretty much perfect. I am reminded of it every time I put my hand in the pocket of my leather, I have the remains of the valves from when it dropped one.

Got a few motors, Merc Vito for moving stuff , Rav 4 for fun in the snow, A6 Quattro estate for long journeys and an Audi TT Quattro S Line, augmented by Audi Sport CH to 313 bhp, for when I just have to get somewhere quick.

That is bloody spectacular. Have you got a build thread somewhere?

I've got a 110CSW you can get your teeth into...

Not sure if i've posted in here or not, but here's my humble Octavia 4x4 which has been brilliant, especially this last week on its winter tyres

Nice fleet!

Haven't had anything sporty since my wife jettisoned her Beemer.

(Mind you the S-Max can manage quite well with a full load, I had three German friends hammering across the Highlands to make a meeting at a distillery, and they could not believe how it shifted.)

Had a Vito of the older variety, lovely size of van and handles beautifully.

Our two main cars are Pajeros. In three years total bills for service/repair is less than 2k. That is what both cost too! They will get over just about anything you could still see the road in.

update on my fleet.

the 20vt mk2 prioject is ongoing, but the light at the end of the tunnel is now getting brighter.

I treated the caddy to some very rare Porsche fitment MSW wheels. I bought them 2 years ago and they needed one centre cap as it was missing. Been looking worldwide and not found another. Eventually took the decision to have one CNC machined. You have heard about the people who's wheels are worth more than their cars? my centre cap is worth more than my car haha

Image

I was offered this as a swap for my wife's mk3 golf tdi estate. It came without an interior or wheels. Located a cheap interior, slammed on a set of tt rims and lowered it 40mm. then had it remapped at http://www.map-tech.co.uk to 200ish bhp. Been a really good car and i am going to miss it.

Image

But I have just replaced it with this!

Image

Its a 230 coupe but the previous owner has replaced the engine with a tuned 325, also running a map-tech remap. He estimates about 200 bhp - its off on the rollers as soon as they arrive in the unit i share so we shall see! It also has an M3 diff so its an interesting drive....

Coilovers and new wheels soon (bbs rc split rims for those that care...)
