The money has to come back somehow, as i was bailed out with the money to get me out of the issue, i need to pay it back now. Sucks, but i'll be building something new soon.

    .
    Sadly I have no more free time to take on such long drives for this year and I will not be there, guess we should try our best to be in Austria next year with working and unseized cars LOL

    I'll wait for some e28 content in the meantime

    Too bad about the whole situation, but what i don't understand is that you where in France and then drove to Colonge that's almost in de oppisite direction looking at the map.

    Damn, it's sucks so much dude, I feel you!
    I see something on IG (the live was tragic/comic to say at least) but read all the stories sucks even more.

    Now that I know this, I think I'm never put a foot in Germany with and illegal car, especially because making a new plate here is a fucking nightmare!

    Sad to see JDO ends like this, but from what a read next build gonna be awesome.
    Good luck dude

    Morning all!

    Update from the Germany situation...

    So i've still not had my plates or ownership documents back. Considering this was 4 weeks ago now, i'm taking that as they're not coming back.

    So with that in mind, i decided to go to Europe in JDO again Why let one shitty situation ruin everything?

    VW DAYS 2019

    Well, what an awesome wekend. Really took the downer away from missing out on Worthersee, and put me in such a good frame of mind.



    On the 6:30 ferry from Dover, only when i reached france did i realise that i LEFT MY BAG AT HOME
    So i did 4 days with no clothes or wash gear, lovely. Nah, i went to the cheapest shop i could find and bought some bits to keep me going for the week lol



    Day 1, wash time





    Few spots from the sunday show:















    The main reason we go mind, is for the people. 4 days of being with people you don't often get to see, it's great.



    Managed to seize some nice photo's this time too!







    All in all, awesome holiday. The CandyShowroom video will give you a better idea when it drops on monday...

    I really regret we didn't go to VWDAYS this year, is such a great show!

    And just out of curiosity: how you can use your car without all the paper?

    In the UK, you don't need any documents with you when you drive! So that makes life easy for us hahaha

    Morning all, been a while!

    So whats new?

    Well, we've been informed our documents won't be getting sent back over from Germany. This is completely illegal, being as both the V5 and reg plates are UK property, but i'm past caring now. I've got a nice new fresh crisp V5 in my possession, so as far as i'm concerned, that shits over and done with.

    Whats happening with my car? Well, it's still coming off the road, and i'm still getting something new. BUT. This isn't the end. It's not going to be my main focus for a fair while, but there's a lot i've still never done, and a lot of things i want to try (Like turbo'ing it)... so yeah, this is going to be a little back burner for me.

    I'll have some nice fresh photo's up shortly, cheers

    Dear Lord. I'm absolutely speechless at how our authorities have been acting towards you. It's embarassing.

    Thats correct, it will live on!! No real reason given, all it's done is give them an even worse impression to the UK...

    Trust me the UK Traffic laws are incredibly laxed compared to other countries. Even the traffic police can be incredibly laid back...

    Yeah man! Glad i'm keeping it going tbh. A lot of unfinished work to do!!

    It's terrible really isn't it. But thats how it is i guess, not a lot i can do, all it's really done is create a very negative vibe towards them from a lot of the UK...

    Not a decision that i've taken lightly, but it's one of them. I can justify the money anymore (especially as i want an E28), as to get it where i want was looking at another 2-3k which could go towards bigger and better things. It broke, i made the polo cool and i kinda lost the love for it. If money was no object i'd just put it away and come back to it, but after almost 6 years, it feels right to end it on a high. I really need to start stripping it to be honest, it's just sat outside dying atm
