    You must be very happy with it. Looking very nice .

    92 VR6 . DBP. She will never be a show car ..... But will be up there with the best of em .

    The bmw seems invincible in isolation . But along side the corrado - a modern classic , we think- it has its work cut out . Autocar 1992.

    Well I'm now booked in for early June at Stealth, but I'm not going to go as far as you (he says haha) as have chains, head refurb and clutch as primary jobs which will take dent out of the budget. Will do suspension anf engine bushes, track rods, driveshafts, brakes, abs pump...

    I like your exhaust. Tempted!

    ... plus exhaust then.

    Sounds very good, my chains have been done last year by the previous owner but the only history of a head gasket that I have with the car receipts was back in 2006, I think the engine block could be the only big thing that could could bite me on the arse one day. Have you done the transmission oil, that was a huge difference on my notchy gear changes I used Castrol Syntrans Transaxle 75W-90 Manual Transmission Fluid - 2 Litre

    Yes the exhaust is well nice , for a catback for £500 that is not bad really as some other motors your looking at at 1K, you could always go for a jetex which is a bit cheaper. One thing I have noticed with the Milltek is the tail pipe has gone that gold colour within a week which has surprised me.

    I know in the states techtroincs have incorporated some Borla parts in theirs , I so highly rate Borla exhausts above and beyond Milltek. They use the highest quality 304 grade stainless steel. Not sure if these fit right hookers but VW Heritage should bloody get a batch over if they do !

    Did you go for resonated or non-res? I am really tempted to just get it done. I've listened to a sound clip of the non-res Milltek on youtube and it sounds great.

    The bottom end is pretty strong on these, fingers crossed you'll be just fine. I'm unsure whether my head has been off but do have a small oil leak from the headgasket at the rear of the engine (under mainfold) that can't be traced back to the rocker so maybe it has been done (badly) or is needed. I shall find out in June!

    It must be nice to have something to drive that's now known to be in fine health.

    It is great it's like driving a modern car knowing that it will just have a thing or two that come up needing to get replaced and of course reliability for long journeys. I went for the resonated just in case the none res had a horrible drone at certain speeds when cruising.

    Great effort Keyo. I was at Stealth last week booking my car in for a similar refresh and took the opportunity to have a quick look at yours on the ramp. You must be well pleased as it looks fantastic.

    Thanks Jon your not to far away from me. I'am well chuffed. The good news is as well I think I may well have found an old skool body specialist who is skilled and can cut out metal. My neighbour at my works yard is a land rover defender specialist that takes them back to the chassis and rebuilds them and he recommended him for body work. Not getting anyone excited but this guy actually can make body panels in his lock up a bloody legend ha. I'll keep everyone updated on his work and the conclusion . He is based in Nuneaton and well known in the classic Jaguar community and a fair price.
