My Rocco, Kermit!!
« on: 30 March 2013, 17:32 »
I'm giving dub rides a go instead of a another dub project, as I like the idea of fellow members being able to openly voice their thoughts on things :smiley:

As a lot of you know, I was unfortunate enough to lose my lovely mk4 earlier this month! :sad: I love the golf and have always owned one, but i have always let my eyes wander over the years, and the Scirocco has been a car that has always tickled my fancy! Well after some maths, and a journey to the bank, I realised that I could do something crazy and go and get the car that I had always wanted, since its release! :evil:

One long stuffy 6 hour coach journey down to Plymouth, and I was sitting in a Jaguar dealership signing the papers for my viper green Scirocco, which I have aptly named 'Kermit'! :smiley: No points for guessing why?! :rolleyes:

The spec is lovely, and I'm still finding out features that even the sales exec didn't realise!! Here is a list of it's credentials:

2.0 GT TDI 140bhp engine
DSG gearbox
Flappy paddles
Black leather heated interior
Black headliner
Auto wipers
Auto rear view mirror
RNS 510 Satnav/DVD player
Integrated Bluetooth
W8 light
Footwell lights
iPod connection
Flat bottomed steering wheel with controls
Cruise control
Dual climate control
Traction control
Adaptive chassis control
Rear privacy glass
18" Interlagos alloy wheels
Headlight washers
Scirocco door sills

It is gorgeous to look at, inside and out, and it's even better to drive! :cool:










If I'm honest, there are a few mods that I'll do, but I don't think anywhere near the extent of the golf!

Comments welcome :afro:

Very nice, I'm surprised that modifiers don't use this colour for their motors.

Got hold of some spray paint and changed this

...to this!! :cool:

I'm very impressed with the colour match! You can also see that I've finished it off with a smart looking Audi R8 oil cap :smiley:
