  1. @vitz are you 100% sure about the 92 Octane ? @iRage I have a vague recollection of us all discussing this on some other threadπŸ€”
  2. @Virenmg psycho indeed 😁 Oddly this isn't the first time i've heard this idea bandied about - there was something like this on one of the old VW forums sometime ago..... https://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?2249293-W8-in-a-B5-A4 https://www.audizine.com/forum/showthread.php/338944-W8-in-a-B5-S4 In a nutshell it is a NoπŸ˜… - complexity, weight, balance, cost
  3. HT 42 42 or 24 24 or something like that In this market a cash offer might go a long way πŸ˜‰
  4. @Dileepa12xgiven the current climate and the lack of job security as @GK_007 also mentioned personally i would be very uncomfortable taking a loan in these troubled times That said the Picanto seems like a good option
  5. @vitz is this first hand or local (long) term review or just what the European automotive journalists have to say?πŸ˜… If it's the latter then just be warned that they aren't exactly the most objective bunch neither are they the best an judging what will hold up the best in the real world or worse still our harrowing tropical local conditions😐
  6. As time goes by there might be niche opportunities for skilled craftsmen like panel beaters etc for restoration work - it's harder and harder to find good tinkers and the like these days
  7. True @tilvin Despite preferring the looks of the T-190 generation being partial to that shape having had an AT-192 Carina MYROAD for over a decade i wouldn't mind that ST-210 generation drivetrain with the 3S-GTE http://en.japanclassic.ru/booklets/107-toyota-caldina-2000-at211-st210.html http://en.japanclassic.ru/booklets/toyota-caldina-1992-t190.html
  8. Acrylic paint since it's likely PU right?
  9. @fiat fan on the subject of B5's and Quattro's that red one was for sale some months ago.... Would that be a simpler place to start your project from?πŸ€”
  10. @tilvin off topic but why did you go with a Caldina? It's one of the less popular / more uncommon Japanese options out there...
  11. @Gummybr don't think we missed that slightly questionable looking shifter - there's a Thora joke to be made but i'll steer clear and instead just offer a solution and propose a nice HURST shifter or gear knob? πŸ˜… https://www.holley.com/brands/hurst/ Perhaps even a pistol grip if you want to keep things as interesting as that existing one suggests πŸ˜‰ https://www.shifterdoc.com/productcart/pc/viewCategories.asp?pageStyle=h&ProdSort=3&page=6&idCategory=52&viewAll=yes
  12. @Gummybr nice to see some of the old crowd still skulking about 😁 Interesting project πŸ‘ Speaking as someone who endured a "mas kade" red interior for 3 more years than he should have I can assure you that it is in your best interest to have an upholstery bloke look at it and suggest some options - you and anyone who has to ride with you will thank you for it. Also in our weather PU/pleather/vinyl is no one's friend πŸ˜…
  13. Hmmm @ajm the steering wheel and interior fabric suggest originally pre-face list. The ADR also was on the mid 90's units only right @fiat fan?
