looks very cool!! drop it though for deffo, if you want to run in vwdrc then just make sure you dont drop the back much (more than 1 spline) to make sure you still get weight transfer to help traction.

That will be a lovely chap named Speedy Jim you're thinking of :)

Really nice looking car you have there mate - looks a lot lower than mine so I suppose that'll have to go on my list later in the year...

Good luck with the driving test and all that. Remember, the best drivers pass on their SECOND go ;)

I say keep it a nice stock looking vintage bug. Too many are getting lowered, yours is rare in that it hasn't been messed with. Best of luck with it and enjoy it !

I think the plan is to do a few bits too it but not go over the top, and most of these bits are gonna be reversable, such as changing the wheels, putting T-Bars on etc.
Speaking of wheels, i lost a hub cap the other day!! :mad:
Gutted!
I was just driving along and i heard it fly off but there was no where to stop and when i went back past i couldn't even see it!
