  1. Whats the model of BBS's my BBS?

    aye, all centre caps are present and correct. Food for thought, a set of my dream wheels (well in my top 3) just came on the market.
  2. Whats the model of BBS's my BBS?

    A quick google search says you are correct sir! Cheers. On a different train of thought, what would a set of these go for including tyres? would £200 be pushing it?
  3. Can anyone tell me what model number my mk2 is currently wearing? I know its not the standard mk2 gti wheels, think they are BBS RA? These are 14". Any insight appreciated. P.S. They are a lot cleaner since this pic was taken :oops:
  4. Spotted this on my lunch break

    so I got curious...just gonna leave this here
  5. Spotted this on my lunch break

  6. bmw 320 E21 coolest thing Ive seen in a while, not 100% on the rusty finish, but the car looks unreal. anyone on here know it?
  7. MK2 got broken into last night

    EDIT: Just of the phone with the engineer, cash settlement of £1000 minus the access, I fix it myself and no black marks against the car. This Is the best outcome in my head, unless I'm missing something? Probably get shafted on my premium or something. Anyways, all the insurance faffing about has been sorted, so now I just need to get my mk2 back fighting fit. for anyone interested I'm insured with Footman James on a classic insurance policy. If anyone want more specifics of my policy just PM me.

    Quick EDIT: Just back from the Engineers visit to inspect the damage, Nice guy knew his stuff and was into mk1's and 2's. He took notes and pictures and said he'll be in touch next week. Seems to think the insurance company will come back with a cash settlement and then for me to go and get the car fixed myself. Not sure how this would effect my premium and status of the car etc. Fingers crossed this all plays out in the end.
  9. MK2 got broken into last night

    Update: Talk about a long winded drawn out affair, Basically this past weeks has been spent ringing around trying to contact the correct people who actually are in charge of insuring my car, so many third parties involved. eventually got speaking to the correct people and the are sending out an "engineer" to inspect the car and get an estimate cost for the damage. Not sure how its gonna play out but ill see what they say anyways.
  10. MK2 got broken into last night

    allymac and wickedonemk2, your are kings! T2000 It all seemed a bit amateur, probably just youtube it or something and then couldn't get it started. It was covered in hand marks around the bonnet where they pushed it. pile of wee hoods about here. A big bat would be too good from them! When I do get it fixed im gonna have to get an alarm sorted or something, these parts are too dodgy for a poor defenceless mk2. I'll also try and keep this thread updated with what the insurers say etc.. maybe it could be used as a point of reference in the future for some unfortunate person.

    Im interested in what that have to say anyways, and if its useless I'll just cancel the claim. I'm with footman james so i'll just have to wait to see what they say tomorrow (hopefully). The only main damage I can see it the drivers door and the electrics, (then theres the psychological damage I suffered when I seen it) pics: http://imgur.com/a/kxdv5

    A very valid point! something to consider. Its really annoying to see something you've spent countless hours and ££ on just be destroyed by clueless scumbags. Ive had nothing but bad luck with this one :/
  13. MK2 got broken into last night

    So, not the best way to start a friday morning. Looked outside the window to discover my car was not where I parked it, so I paniked and then saw it parked about 100 yards away from my house. They completely wreaked the drivers side door, (im thinking crow bar) and destroyed all the wiring below the steering wheel and fuse box...also took the rear badge? and one of my BBS centre caps stickers (it was only a cheap sticker cos the original had become all faded.) The strange thing is that nothing else was taken, they went through the entire car and didn't touch the stereo or anything. I think im missing a tax book and maybe the insurance cover note (I dont usually leave them in the car but I had just taxed it last week)...they did take my bag of tools and my basketball though. *sigh. Anyways, just thought id vent, I'll post some of the gruesome pics when I get back from work. Also, anyone any ideas on where / who I should take her to to get her fixed up all proper? Ive been doing bit and pieces myself but If the insurance is covering it I'd like to get it done to the highest standard.
