Hi folks, new to this site, had my scirocco GT for past 10 years, ive decided on stippin her down and givin her an overhaul, the car is in good enough order i just feel it deserves a freshen up, rebuild the engine, freshen up interior and a new lick of paint! the car is alpine white with the black bodykit, which i like but cant decide on repainting alpine white or changing it to jet black, which i think suits the scirocco's best, any ideas on colours??????????

now am really undecided !!! i do like the white but was lookin to colour code the trim and bumpers with a new set of rims, keepin the 1.8 8v engine, just rebuild it, got new petrol tank to go in along with upgrading the brakes, they really are frightening sometimes!!! always a sore point come the annual MOT test! ordered the long badgeless grill from germany and goin with the single headlights, although not sure what it will be like driving on very dark roads !!! anyone tried these?
them mirrors im not sure about either, kinda like em but there is no internal adjustment http://www.vwvortex.com/Anthony/Smilies/frown.gif
