Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

in a somewhat lower price bracket this seems to be a lot of car for the money, looks to be a decent quality build

Not to my own taste, but it looks well built.

The part where you get the bits together is fine, finishing is where the hard work really starts. First off, you have to completely strip it again to get the body ready for paint, then there's chassis finishing, then wiring, then trim and glass. It may look complete in the pics, but it's a long way off being finished.

And taken down again. Sold i suppose. I thought of this as i saw one on a transporter the other day. I assume it was a kit.
Needs an Alfa V6 so it sounds Italian at least.
