after having my hours cut in my job down to 25hrs, having 3 kids , running a polo as main car , what should i do with my gt2, has not seen a good run for a while, what is wrong with it you say... well not much ,charge battery, fit stainless filler neck, service, done, do not want to break car , although thats where the cash is, 96k, weber, fancy grill
you know the one, new pirelli tyres, bodywork tip top, interior immaculate ,

get it through mot you say, well cant afford at mo, cant afford insurance at mo, also no tax,

keep it till work picks up?, track it ? upgrade it slowly ?

anybody in northants area like to help get it through mot , could do bbq and drinks one sunday maybe?

If you have the space and can do without the cash/hassle of breaking just SORN it for a few months. The amount of 'returnees' to Sciroccos on here recently shows how people regret letting their motors go in the first place.
