Heh all,thought it was about time i got around to starting a proper build thread for my MK4 R32....
Well here goes....(WARNING!!!!! pic heavy)
Picked her up on the 29 October 2011,
Im the 3rd owner of this R,the 1st owner of this R was a member of this forum BigMeanBob here is the for sale thread that he started way back in Feb 2009,
https://www.r32oc.com...r-stg-i-320bhp/,
The R got sold to someone in central London who i then purchased from in 2011....
couple of pics when got her home..
https://www.r32oc.com...ercharged-pics/
Started adding bits to the R very slowly as all spare cash seemed to go on fuel for a whilePosted Image ,1st thing i changed was the aerial as the original looked way to big..
Then spent most of my spare time cleaning her.couple of reflection pics.(https://www.r32oc.com...ercharged-pics/)
Next up was a set of dark indicators... https://www.r32oc.com...cators-fitted/.
Got round to buying some R center caps...(https://www.r32oc.com...-few-pics-mk4r/)
Fan fix kit now fitted thanks to Andy4motion...Nearly one year of of ownership of the R now and seem to have OCD about keeping the R cleanPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
Also 4 new tyres fitted goodyear eagle f1 asymmetric 2 and hunter wheel alignment done.(took her on castle combe track day)https://www.r32oc.com...t-castle-combe/
Also got Pressed plates now fitted,wanted to get some arty pics so went out to find places to take some pics,(you cn click on links)https://www.r32oc.com...6-mk4-r32-pics/
Fitted new rear wiper,and gave a good clean.(https://www.r32oc.com...ing-the-ragain/)
More pics..(https://www.r32oc.com...-black-mk4-r32/)
Start up of the R(https://www.r32oc.com...art-up-of-my-r/)
Private pressed plates now fitted...(https://www.r32oc.com...-cleaning-my-r/)

H&R springs now fitted,Posted Imagefew rolling shots of the R, https://www.r32oc.com...-rolling-shots/
More cleaning pics..(https://www.r32oc.com...cleaning-the-r/)
Have now fitted new genuine VF serpentine belt and a set of rear 20mm spacers.(no pic of these fitted yet...)
