VW Avus 'snowflake' wheels (scirocco)

Just added a 1992 mk2 scirocco to my VW collection. Looking for some 14" snowflake wheels suitable for referbishment as mine are too far gone for diamond cutting.

Re: The VW Engine Company - Catford

100% recommendation from me.
Great help from my first call for information through to test drive on collection.
Friendly and very knowledgeable
Not quite to my 500 mile service, but all good so far

I went for a 1641, little extra torque

Re: The Engine Shop (Kent) - any experiences?

isn't google wonderful !! 'Engine Shop reviews' throws up some unfavourable results so search continues for a possible engine supplier I've come across The Engine Company, http://www.thevwenginecompany.com/index.html. Looks promising from the reviews, anyone had experience ? Any one else to consider?

You can then continually work out what's the next important improvement you want to make, it will continually change as you live with the bus Otherwise, you'll have spent your mo...

Re: Looking forthe thread on Accelerator adjustor unit

Cheers Lee
That's the one

time to dip into the moneybox

thx
