Thanks JV.

Well I was on the look out for a G60, and I did drive Jordon's old one and just missed out on buying his, but continued too look around and this one came up:-



She's a 1990 G60 Edition One.

My first task was to source some replacement caps for the BBS RS rims, which some toe rag had nicked from the previous owner. I ordered up a set of these from Just Matz, but I've not fitted them yet due to the nasty summer weather !
I'll get a pick up when I've fitted them.

The body work is a little scruffy on her, but the engine seems fine having recently having a rebuild, it runs well. Most of the ancillaries have been replaced recently too.

The Charger has had some work (porting) but is on a standard pulley at the moment, which seems sensible, until she has done a few more Km after the rebuild.

Ok, she's been up in the air at the local VW specialist, and one shock is blown, so new suspension to some soon......

Car back from Automotive Solutions, Front end alignment done, drives much better, new auxillary belt, and new front splitter.
Fingers crossed for dry weather at the weekends before Stonor, so I might actually get to clean it !

Ok, been a while...

Been getting quotes on engine / charger mods
Decided on Koni Coilovers...
Bodyshop quotes next...

Plus I've been down to my local GSF to get some decent Hella headlamps and some decent Osram Xenon bulbs, the headlamps on it at the momment are cheap smoked ones, and they are poop. Can only se about 10 yards in front of the car. Plus I got a single headlight badged Grille  :wink:

Samll update, Back from E38...Got a deal on Weitek coilovers from Vinesh at Eurotek, also phoned my local dealer today and ordered some G60 Steel Wheels for the car, hopefully strip down and rebuild the BBS RS over the winter.

Just booked another track day to at Bedford, not sure if I can get the G60 ready in time, might go in the 8v shopper again...

Ok, G60 has been slammed on Weiteks and is riding on G60 steels since I posted anything. Seen some track use at Bedford too.

Been to Storm Developments while the forum was down, went on the Rolling road, here is the graph.



Not bad for a standard pulley.
