I saw this thread at the completion of the project (unfortunately), and it aligns with my desire to convert my Scirocco to AWD. I had always figured that the way to go was to pull the drivetrain out of a Golf R, but also would like to own a TT RS. Your project really is the best of both worlds, as I like the Golf R, but I am not a fan of the styling, hence I bought a Scirocco, just a pity it is not AWD.... and it doesn't have a 2.5 TFSI under the bonnet. You have done a great conversion, and the Scirocco is a good platform....

What an awesome build! Just read through the whole thing lol. Unfortunately this forum is mostly US based and we didn't get the scirocco here so there isn't much traffic. Thank you for finishing the thread though and not leaving us hanging, for those of us that are reading.

Couple of questions, how come you wanted to keep the 240 KM/h cluster with the white and black screen? Just preference?

Thankfully I get to admire these cars when I visit home, in Romania. In the mean time I drive my VW CC here in the U.S.
I will definitely keep an eye out for updates, but until then congratulations on such an awesome and unique build!

Its 300km/h and facelift case :)


If you look at color and 3d color clusters you'll see its like Siemens S55 and S65 ages ago. B/W more accurate and minimalistic with the same info in it. I prefer thing to do something. Color do nothing and its not beautiful in these clusters.

Ahh I see now, at first I thought you kept the 240 KM/H cluster. And you do bring up a good point, although I switched my cluster from black and white to color.

Btw, this was the best build thread and most interesting one that I've read through so thank you for posting on here as well! Also enjoyed the road trip pictures as I enjoy road trips a lot as well.

long long time has gone since last update. Last Wednesday Scirocco was looking like this.


We wanted to finish all the problems of the car. Literally.
32 points we had in a list. 29 finished a bit more new was found.

Each last Saturday of May we have VW Festival near Moscow. So we had 3 day to finish. Successful ))

From festival




A bit photos after festival.













May be some day I'll write final spec list :)

Greetings from Denmark

Soo nice this build, i love the scirocco, and your car is so complete, i dream of the day i start to build myself a scirocco aswell, i tend to bring up your build when i talk about my dreams of scirocco.
i'm sorry that i haven't been writing back in here, but i will try to be more vocal in here.

or maybe drop a message onc ein a while on your instagram, sadly i can't read russian, but i love to follow the ventures of you and your dear scirocco.

by the way, congratulations on getting push to start in the car.

hope you will update a little up the thread here, i'm sure there's more following your build than you can read ;)

Anymore updates? Did you manage to solve all the 32 'problems' ?

Interested to see 0-100km/hr timings.

Is the haldex working well on your roc? / How does she handle?

Awesome thread!
