Cheers for the comments :) Think I know that diesel Jetta mate, owners username is Mozza?

Not a great pic, but it's getting there! Getting tracking done in the morning, then just need to give it a final tidy - remove old stickers and such like - then next weekend I'm taking it to a mate to have it polished, will definitely get a load more pictures then  :D

Yeah you got it Mozza looks just like yours.That looks spot on mate with the wheels I keep saying to Mozza if I had his Jetta I think some ATS cups would look ace with it slammed.You dont see many Jettas at all now so its always nice to see one like yours  :wink:

Small update, it's been doing a fine job on daily duties :) You can see in the pics above that the front bumper had dropped on both sides so I got my hands on a pair of brackets from an aftermarket bumper to replace them.

Unfortunately I didn't realise that the aftermarket brackets are different to the genuine ones .. the pic shows that aftermarket ones are too short;



So I decided to chop up the original broken brackets and plastic weld them up;



Job done :) Rubbish pic but it's sat nice and straight both sides now. A minor job but worthwhile.



More updates to follow soon :)

Cheers guys, yeah you don't see too many G60s in Jettas eh, should still be good fun even with the big arse hanging off the back wheels :tongue:

Got some new front stoppers and a 23mm master cylinder to go on too :)

Picked up a new interior yesterday so will be fitting that over the next couple of days along with a couple of other bits, but today I polished it up so it's looking pretty reasonable (from a short distance away at least :tongue: )

A sort of half and half shot, but my camera is rubbish so you have to look hard!



After a coat of wax etc;
