16v engine gone. so must go

Post by marcdublin37 »

Hi all.

Unfortunately my 16v gti has suffered catastrophic engine failure. It has to go as money is not available to repair. Dont want to scrap it. So scrap value will do. Needs to be moved from garage asap. Burton on trent area. Pics to follow.
