Well, the car had a lot to live up to after Tom’s write up.. it didn’t disappoint!
Perfect set up, great condition for a high mileage car. It was a real thrill to drive, no sense of body roll but also a fairly forgiving suspension set up, great noise from the dansk exhaust. Fantastic car, congrats to nimrod for creating an air cooled gem.

Picked the car up last week!.. has lived up to expectations, it drives and feels like a new car, zero body roll, most consumable have been replaced with better than new components. looking forward to breaking the 100.000 mile mark Thumb
