    I had no intention of buying another car as I was very happy with the black vRS but this local example came up in Rally Red with a genuine 47k and I couldn’t refuse. My third vRS Mk1 in 9 months! It was bought new in Howard Abrahams in Lurgan 15 years ago. I bought it of the second owner, an older gentleman who had 4 years who basically did not drive it. I gave it a light detail today, replaced the centre boot badge and wheel centre caps. I have it booked into have the rear spoiler ( common fading issue) and the front bumper redone due to a few kerb scrapes. Its also booked to go in for a full service including the oil pick up pipe. Future plans are a wheel refurb and tidy things as I go.

    It's been a long long time coming and now she's home! Really chuffed with how it turned out definitely worth the wait! Still alot more changes to come. Dual chambers are in and CL taillights so I can get it through MOT. Need to order new clips for the door mouldings too so I can get them on. The plan is to get it MOTd next week then I'm going to get the coilovers and wheels on. The boot lock needs attention and number plate bulbs wired in too. I want to run amber indicators in the front bumper but the Euro ones don't fit in the US bumper so I'm going to try and split the lense and get the orange ones in. Lower bumper ducts don't fit either so OEM grills it is. Interior had 18 months of dust and crap in it so it got a good scrub and I also changed the pedals.

    Can't beat a red Octy! Mint dude, looks almost as nice as mine BTW the spoiler may respond to being cut and polished (mine did) although the rest of the paintwork won't.

    If you disconnect the battery will it allow you to open it manually with the key in lock? Then once door open remove the door panel and disconnect the module so that the button only operates of the key and not the central locking???? Just a thought, not sure if this would work.
