*Woooow* *Ahhhh* Another new arrival. As long as i anticipated this i have finally, surprise surprise got my shiny (used) Volkswagen Scirocco 1.4 TSI 122ps in rising blue. As much as i dawned upon getting the 140 'twin charged' my insurence would be higher than kites. But with this its still a cheap *echem* ish insurance plan of just shy of 2k :mad: ... But im 18 wanting to start now and the 122 is still to me, good enough. So here we go on the slowest project but im glad to own one. :clap:

Welcome to the flock. We do love Sciroccos here.
Ah yes, the start of earning insurance bonus. I paid about the same back in 02 for a 94 Audi S4. Now i don't know, my wife takes care of the boring car stuff.

If you have monies left after the insurance payments you will find many idea here on how to modify your car.
The R has been passed on to the next generation. Hard to see it with more battle scars than a gladiator. But when the roof goes away on the replacement it is all good. M4 Convertible.

Washed, clayed, machine polished and a full interior clean.. Looking lush with the new editions of the simple gloss black badges and door mirror caps. Next are the alloys :yes:

Cracking car to have at that age, wish I was that lucky, not many people have such a decent car that young, my first was an 8year old Astra!!

Yeah man, it's an expensive luxury especially if on an apprenticeship wage. Yeah Astra is where it's at ;) But I've got it for 4 years with a long list on stuff to do haha

But as you have probably noticed, there is a dent in the nearside quarter.. Yeahh in September in a car park going to a local restaurant, while i was stationary i lady decided to reverse out of her bay without looking and hit my car :( . Being my first 'collision' the lady was 100% sure it was her fault, but funnily enough changed opinion going through insurance. Stilll going through it, didn't realize how much of a long winded process it is. But hey ho.. Here are some depressing pictures of what it looks like. But i did get the dent pulled out a was really impressed on the work the body shop done. LUCKILY she didn't damage my brand new alloys.

After some saving up I got myself a Stage 1 Remap

For the standard turbo engine.. It goes! Feels like it’s boosts twice. Little difference in the HP, hope for more but the torque increase is insane and makes a hell of a difference thanks to A1 BHP in Broadstairs.

How did you get on with the insurance? I always had the understanding that the person who's reversing is the first to be blamed

Just over a week ago I got a letter saying that the woman and the insurance company haven’t paid or even defended their case in over 3 months so they raised it to solicitors. A few days ago I got a call from them saying that the insurance paid in full the damage and it went down as her fault. So I guess they pooped themselves once it raised to solicitors. So happy days that’s off my shoulder. Glad I didn’t get a claim especially for what I’m paying at the moment. :) :yes:
