'ello all,

a noob to the forum but not to dub ownership.

Current toy is a Purple '95 M 2.0 16V Rado - she needs a little work to get her how I want but for 500 she's a stunner.

I hope to make it some of your meets and get more involved in the scene.

Not sure how to load images on here right now but wil laim to get some on here soon!

Cheers for the warm welcome all.

Glad you like the car and colour.

As far as I'm aware the car is a UK car, I have no paperwork to tell me otherwise Shocked

Here's a few more shots of my Rado - Just had a quote of 1,000 for a full respray (windows left in) which I didn't think was too bad. Going to colour code the door handles, washer jets and remove the bump strips.

I'm thinking coilovers and a set of Lenso BSX's with black centre's........




After a quick wash - she doesn't look too bad but the paint is really flat





Needs lowering!!





Interior is pretty clean


Rear Seats pretty much unused.


rear bumper needs attention - not sure how to fix this to get it through the winter without further peeling?

Deffo a B-berry, have a look in the boot there will be a sticker by your legs giving codes should be LK4Z...

Wierdly looks like a sherry pearl from the front end pics.. but deffo B-Berry... paint looks in good nick in the pics TBH, maybe just have it all properly machine polished and get bumpers painted?

I'd lay off getting any of the plastics painted... I "had" colour coded door handles, and just trying to get the last of the paint off them now... A real PITA...

Jesus, didn't realise they were that bad - was that because Karmann only built one spec and US cars have to be like that?
