    Tried to be fancy.. just ended up with a big lump of gate post ;)

    Two previous owners, 58k Miles, FSH. Body work is pretty much immaculate as is the interior. Was quite pleased when i went to see it and saw a Forge Intercooler on it. Got it home and also found a Forge 007P (Recirc Valve) and a couple of silicone hoses too.

    Not much in the way of plans. Would like a new exhaust and then a remap. Possibly new wheels (although may just refurb these, undecided yet) and some decent lowering springs/shocks.

    :)

    I paid £3600 for it. Compared to other ones i had viewed (people wanting PX's for my Mondeo) its a bit overpriced, however they were all really tatty, this one was worlds apart from them all.

    It took weeks of waiting/searching but i'm very pleased that i didn't impulse buy.

    Can't knock it for that price, is it the 1.8T or 2.0T VAG lump?

    Love it, Phil.

    If hadn't gotten into Rovers, I probably would have ended up with an Octavia VRS.

    A mate has an ex police VRS in white. I've had a nosey and find them really smart.

    Why would someone go to the expensive of putting a Forge FMIC on (they aren't cheap) and then not spend the few hundred quid on getting it mapped?

    Strange :p

    The previous owners address was on the reciept for the Intercooler so I had a look on BT's website, found his number and gave him a call.

    Nice chap and was pleased I called (I think!). He said a remap was next on his list but he saw the car he has now at the garage I purchased the vRS from and PX'd it in on an impulse buy!

    Looks like a cracker and in the best colour too IMO of course.

    I'd say that the essential mod is a rear anti roll bar followed by remap if you fancy a bit more go.

    Wonderbar. Make sure its boost tight and get it off long life servicing and it should last and last

    Worst colour ever? Of the four I can't see how red is the worst when you have washed out banana yellow and ZZZZZZzzzzzz Silver :p
