didnt this used to be green?

looks better red, but still looks a sack of shit, and as expected the engine bay looks untouched, in regards to charger and real value holding work

love this quote

"It is a standard car that has been striiped out, reworked, rebuilt and repainted by Volkswagen technicians"

and to put into laymans terms

"it is a standard car that has had the door cards and rear seats removed, oh and random bits of dash, not rebuilt evidently, and painted by some monkey garage"

what does reworked mean?? and how dare they say "Volkswagen Technicians" when clearly they are just some pikey's

"detailed engine bay" where? all you have done is stick some yellow pipes on, halfords spark leads, and painted the rocker cover

"Its easy to drive though it is highly tuned" highly tuned? he just likes to use words that sound good but actually mean fuck all!

No mention of all important engine spec, engine work, clutch, services

"apologies we do not know the exact details of all of the modifiactions, we are not experts in this field so we will not be able to give details on suspension components, size of supercharger etc etc"

has he really just said that???

these guys sound like crooks to be honest

fuckin hell, visit the website and see the results

the g40 came highest for handling????

i hate people and things like this, really annoys me

Is that a genuine G? If so someone needs to save it and put it back on the road properly! They have butchered it!

there's two g40s in that event though! So this could be the other one.

god knows what they were thinking by putting all that crud on it or what any of it has to do with being a "road racer"

I might go and have a look at it as i work in Enfield.

Best handling car, a G40 on 17s???

They are VW technicians though, it's an inter-dealership challenge that pits workshop staff against each other.

The other G40 that was entered in that event was done by Heathrow VW.  I remember a lad coming on the forums asking for help etc and it turned out ok I think.

Shame about this one though

if they've done decent quality work on it though it wouldn't take much to revert it back to a really good g40, set of bumpers, arch trims and stuff.  taking off those sideskirts might leave a mess though

i sent a question:

Dear david-cameron,

if i bid on this and win because i am genuinely interested..do you have all the original bumpers and stuff so i can bin all the shite that has been put on it? Do you have the original wheels and door cards too? potentially it could be a good buy but the wheels and body kit will all be thrown in a skip by me cos they are shite so ill need the original bits to make it a decent g40 if you had them. Would they be included or would you take the shit off me in exchange for the original bits? Also when was the car in a front end smash? the front panel is not original and has been welded or bodged to the wings which isnt the way it is meant to be? am i right in thinking its had some front end damage? can you also tell me wether it is an orignal g40 or a conversion before i check the number plate? These questions will help me determine wether this is an economical purchase or just worth buying for the engine and the rest can be scrapped. thanks very much :) dan

"blueprinted engine". If that were true(which I doubt) then it could be a worthwhile buy. Reckon they probably mean weightmatched.
