Im back

Hello all, after who knows how long I am back with a new VL. Well almost I got a new VL berlina 3L Manual lined up which ill be buying in a few weeks. Not 100% sure on what im gonna do with it yet, just thinking up ideas as i don't want to spend too much on it.
It needs a new paint job so that will probably be first on the list.
Will post pictures when i get some

Yea Ive always said I would turbo my old vl, but never got around to it. So I thought I better not say that as it probably wouldn't happen lol. But its still possible.

Everyone knows Aaron. He lived around the road from me for awhile :-P.

Does anyone know what happened to my old VL, Apparently the guy who got it off me was on here and turboed it, but didn't hear anything else about it. The car is my profile picture.

New Kelford Cam Installed Car running mint on 10psi all day everyday. Eats my mates 20det and 25+t Reakon it would give my Vr a run for its money

Only problem i had was blowing the head-gasket when first bolted turbo on cause i didn't do top bleeder and must of got an air bubble.. Witch i thought was bad turbo. I'm still sorry for thinking it was bad turbo. I love the turbo I want 2 for my V8

yes well that was awesome. And I would also like to see your bt1 again one day, on the road :-P

So everyone, Paint colours! What does everyone think? I like the Yellow. But i don't want to make people think im trying to make a fake bt1 :-P so not sure if thats the best colour. I like that Dark Red VL thats on this site (too lazy to look it up).
Not keen on pink, purple or black. Don't like black Vls that much :-P
The Car is currently White with rust :-P

Its mine. Well as of say Thursday. But there is a catch it died today while the owner was driving it. He said it just died while driving and now it won't start. To begin with it would crank and fire up but then die in about 2 seconds. We towed it to my place and now when you crank it, it doesn't fire at all. So I'm guessing it has a problem with the fuel. Just as long as it doesn't cost too much to fix :-P

Na never really had a problem with the clutch when I had it, so never worried about it.
I was planning to have a play around with it today but since its raining I might have to wait till sometime during the week :-( Yea any parts we could try would be a help. lol im pretty sure the AFM on the car I sold you came off this vl as we swapped them once when my old vl was having a few problems.
