Long time no post! So a little update, as most know, I had a lovely RED MK1 Octavia which I adored. Well, obviously someone didn't want to have it as the other week I was taken out at a small round about. As I was indicating to turn right approaching the round about, a gentlemen in an Alfa decided not to stop and give way (he was coming from in front of me, to my left as I was turning right) and went straight into me damaging the front left passenger wing and setting off my air bags. Damage: KEY: Red is me Blue is the other driver Crushed all the side inner wing, cracked the struts housing attached to the chassis leg, which is bent out of place. Total WRITE-OFF! Was absolutely fuming and gutted. Well anyway, driver accepted liability and I've kept the car for spares. So on to my new car......

I couldn't find a decent red one anywhere and I needed a car quickly.

So I was talking with a friend about what I fancy for my next car..... I have an Itch to scratch with a 1600 mk2 squareback which I'll get round to.... But the idea that was set down in my brain is finding a damaged Fabia VRS estate with the 1.4 dsg 180bhp engine in it & graft the front end from a Polo 6r onto it. To give me basically a Polo GTi estate.....!! am I bonkers or would that look cool!!??
