The over heating didn't kill it...

Who remembers this? It was for sale on eBay last year, I think a link was put up here about " I bet this will overheat "

Looking at that front I cant see how it would get air to the rad , although it looks like a lot of work has gone in to it so perhaps they did a mod on the rad .

They were probably too busy watching the tem gauge rather than the road........ Wink

The round "badge" bit is a mesh cover the air gets in there. Smile

I'm sure that's looking worse than before though - wonder if it got squashed by a proper VW. I saw a similar front on a Subaru the other weekend.

Do those V.W fronts come in a kit form , or do they have them fabed up themselves ? .

There is a place in Japan that do them, but your looking at best part of £1500 to your door.
