I just cannot bring myself to fit sequential lights as the council depo is just down the road from me and all the new street cleaners and bin lorries have sequential led lights.  :laugh:

my GTi is now a bin lorry :laugh:

Due to lockdowns, Covid, Winter, working from home, supermarket deliverys, Amazon deliverys etc,

Ive only just realised apart from making sure i run it every few months and move it back and forth. 
The Mk6 hasnt done any miles this past year.   :sad:

My MOT guy is really going to rip the piss out of me this year. :grin: :whistle:

Thought i better check the other cars and OMG ive only done 600 miles total in the past 6 months!   :embarrassed: :undecided:

Ive turned into a hermit.... :huh:


So today went for a 20 mile drive in the mk6 (collected some parts on route) forgot what the mk6 was like.  :smiley: Stalled it twice  :grin:
