    Hi all,

    My name is Rai, some may have seen my car at a few shows and meets for the past few years.

    This is my pride and joy and currently undergoing changes to the engine and to the bodywork

    13923402_10153861127318602_2789875593586332015_o.jpg 13920032_10153861128378602_3680962581082639500_o.jpg IMG_7748.jpg

    She is a 1995 1.8 with a manual transmission

    My Instagram is @Blitz_UK if you like to see more pictures of her and how much changes she went through.

    The current stage of her at the moment is that the 1.8 engine sadly gave up after 250k miles and got my hands on a M111.974 2.3l Kompressor which is in a process of being removed from a 2000 chassis.

    Any thing else you like to know, just drop me a message or I will try my best to reply on here

    Thank you all

    Hello Rai, I hope the replacement engine gets it quickly back into service. You obviously get a lot of pleasure from your car and I've seldom seen such a brightly polished interior. Welcome to the forum.

    Nice project!
    If you want an 'easier ride', then I've got a low mileage C200 / M111 and manual box available, cheap, in London.:)

    Hi Mcdonald, Thank you, I gained a lot from her, we have been through a lot together, thick and thin but i still love her and how much work has gone into her to get her where she is now. I may never give up the love i have for her. Even my girlfriend still gets jealous, I just say to her just be glad it is a car and not another living female hahahah.

    Thank you all, Yes the interior is a real eye catcher, that is what makes her unique. She was more like an unfinished project when i bought her off a friend but I never regretted it since I bought her home for the first time
