Purchased as a BONE STOCK 76K mile car this thing is a survivor! Plans are to preserve it as best as possible while adding period correct mods and use it for an occasional autocross. In April 2016 I completed a major suspension and brake refresh which included the mods below:

Suspension: Koni Sports, Ground Control Coilover Sleeves with 350# F/450# R Eibach Springs, Scirocco 16v 24mm solid rear sway bar,front sway bar removed, lower strut brace, Eurosport upper strut tower brace, Delrin control arm bushings.


10.1" Brembo blank rotors,,rebuilt Girling 54 16v Scirocco calipers, Carbotech XP8 pads, rebuilt 200mm rear drums,SS braided brake lines.

Wheels: 15x6" BBS RA Wheels, 15x6.5" Jax Light Wheels
