I'm not offended by anyone that isn't keen on the snake print, as I knew it was a marmite mod! But for all those that do like it, thanks for your comments :afro: Got pulled over by the 5-0 the other night, as I had a headlight bulb blow, and the sergeant loved the snake print! :laugh:

I've since bought a front splitter, which will be sprayed and fitted, as well as some Scirocco R side skirts. Looks like the modding bug is staying!! :evil:

No, just a couple of hookers! :grin: One of my colleagues remarked that with the black headliner, leather interior and snake print, my car looked like a brothel! :laugh:

Been a bit of movement on the Rocco since the last update...

I decided to give the wheels a bit of a refurb, as there was a bit of lacquer peel. It takes a bit of patience, and hard graft, but the results are extremely rewarding :smiley:



I bought some R-line side skirts, as I didn't like the cheap looking black rub strips that VW decided to tarnish the Rocco with. By recommendation of Hoggy (off this forum) I took the car up to Evolution Paint Works in Carlisle, where they worked their magic. To say I'm chuffed with the end result is an understatement!! :cool:

And if that wasn't enough, I purchased a front splitter to finish the front end off. I initially bought a cupra splitter, as I was misinformed that they fit. Simply, they don't!! :grin: Unfortunately I am finding that mods on the Rocco are costing me more that on the golf. The splitter I bought cost me in excess of £120 :undecided: Looks spot on though! :cool:


Comments welcome peeps :wink:

Did the police say anything about your plates when they pulled you?
