Well with the Golf taking up a lot of attention, she's had to take a back seat for a while, well a week and my did she not like that. As Steve wanted to spend the day on the Golf, I needed the Rado to get to work. She didnt want to start did she, I know I should have popped back to garage and started her up every morning and it wont happen again. It took us the best part of an hour to get her going Rolling Eyes She is called Christine to us as she is very mischievous lol!
She is having a front wheel bearing replaced on Friday as the Carmonas will be going back on at the weekend, and think Ill get the tracking done while Im at it.
MidsDub are doing a photoshoot and we want her looking smart so a good wash and polish Friday too Very Happy Im off to get the Rado started and get the interior cleaned lol!

With a WUR-mod guess it's still a KR?
