    The boat trimmer at lemon tree passage is cheap and does good work.
    Turns out, far too much has been written about great men and not nearly enough about morons

    VS. Goes without saying. Easily the best colour available on a VS. Good pick up.

    One of my bucket list items, own another VS with a S-Pack kit, then LS it if some sorts.

    Will never happen so I will pretend to be you until you sell it

    I now have my kids on weekends so doing a bit more driving with them in the back. I'm 6 foot so the Polo I bought in 2015 is a bit of a pain. I'm thinking of swapping the Polo for a Civic Type R

    Looks good, but I doubt a VS commo with IRS is going to be able to tow if a GS can't.

    Aside from being a sleeper

    I fail to see how this is any better than a VZ for the same money for example

    But that's probably why I currently only have 1 bike and 1 car

    I agree with this guy, for the same money you could have got a schmick 6L VZ SV8. A much newer and nicer car
