2000 Volkswagen Polo Polo Saloon Tdi 260bhp Sleeper | £4,250
Going to stick this up for sale too. Really only built it as I had all the parts/running gear in my Mk2 golf.
The thing is pretty quick, will dust most things once rolling, happy to cruise doing 50mpg or pull off the clock.
Road trip to germany in June, no issues at all, plenty of spares etc, just don't really use it anymore.
