    Hi all. Haven’t gotten this car running yet. Old starter was smoking so I assumed it was busted. Replace starter, bushing, battery cables and it STILL clicks and the connection on the positive solenoid terminal (upper) gets red hot and/or smokes. I’ve tried jumping it with mixed results. I can...

    I bought this car with a friend back in Sept. We have been fixing every and all issues. Including F&R Window Rubber, Window Scrappers, motor mounts, tucking steel bumpers, fixing interior trim etc. I think we did everything. I'm running out of things to fix.

    Complete newb here, I do a little above normal engine work, I've torn a head down and rebuilt but I am in no way a professional. Things like Camshaft and piston sizing are way over my head. So to the question.. I have an 86 mk2 scirocoo that I'm slowly trying to build. Nothing crazy but I'd...

    Hello everyone! I'm looking for anyone who might have a photocopy or pdf of the bentley manual for the scirocco. My understanding is that it has body dimensions listed as well as engine bay dimensions. I don't have access to one of the manuals myself at the moment, and I need to get my hands on...

    What's better than a lightweight, low slung sport coupe? How about one with some big power under the hood? If you're in the market for something a bit different; a Volkswagen Scirocco with a turbocharged VR6 engine. But should you buy it built, or build it yourself? Option A: Buy It Built...

    Instagram is a lovely place for photos of VWs, but we can’t think of the last time a post has been quite so laser-focused on our interests. Photographer Jeff Zwart is sharing collections of his ad work from the ‘80s and ‘90s on his Instagram page. "I spent 10 years shooting high-performance...

    "Bring the Scirocco!" "We need the Scirocco!" "All VW's problems would be solved and there would be global peace and everyone would be rich and there would be no world-wide pandemics if they gave us the Scirocco!!!" Sorry, but Volkswagen never gave us the Euro-only Scirocco. But guess what...

    Spring's around the corner: football is now over (hope your team won!), the 365 days of January are over, and the groundhog in Pennsylvania did not see its shadow. Better yet: RADwood started to announce 2020 shows. If you're in the market for an 80's or 90's ride, have we got two options for...

    There's a recurring joke you'll hear every year at Cincy . It changes a little bit depending on who's telling it or the context, but it's a version of "Which red Scirocco is yours?" Well, we've found two and a half (what?) examples of Volkswagen's little sports coupe. And if you're in the...

    So you're looking for a rare car? First-gen Sciroccos are getting to be pretty rare. Throw a custom powerplant and all-wheel-drive system in it and you've got perhaps the rarest 'Rocco around. But maybe the rising auction price is out of your reach; we've also found a project car to make your...

    Have we got a great member's car for Scirocco Week! Let's say you want a small, lightweight coupe to terrorize the track with. And let's say a standard engine swap just won't suffice when you start craving better performance. You could go out and buy a car, or you can get creative. VWvortex...

    It's happened again. After my fourth Scirocco event in southern Ohio, I'm sitting here with Post-Cincy Depression (PCD). What is PCD, you ask? And, more importantly, what the heck is Cincy and how has it been going on for 20 years? Let me tell you about Cincy. If you are an auto enthusiast, and...

    It's Scirocco Week on VWvortex, and we're starting out strong. If you're in the market for a fun-to-drive coupe, here are two Scirocco's (Scirocci?) in need of new homes. So do you build or buy? Argument: Build Article: 1986 Scirocco 16V To start, this '86 appears to be a lot of car for the...

    Ready for a great Friday diversion? Love wild build threads? Questionable English skills? If you answered "Da!" to any of those questions, then today's Forum Friday feature is for you. Now we've seen in the forums how much our readers wanted Volkswagen to bring the third version of the Scirocco...

    I have to say, I'm having trouble sharing this find with you, our loyal readers. Despite already having my own Scirocco 16V, this weary white coupe is calling to me. "If you love something, set it free" so, ladies and gentleman, I (begrudgingly) give you this week's Ratty Rescue: a $1,988 1988...
