Points to Note:
Automatic choke needs attention (common fault on these):
Winter starting needs coaxing of revs up to 4k rpm to clear the issue before setting off then it's fine. Some opt for a manual-choke conversion

Carburettor fine but would benefit from a rebuild in future; new gasket set included in sale.

New vacuum hoses fitted but fuel econometer not working

'E' (fifth) gear not working (common fault on these); it has only just stopped working! I was quoted £1200 including guarantee for a gearbox refurbishment by a specialist company; A1 Gearboxes Biggleswade, Bedfordshire.
The gearbox oil has always been changed at specified intervals and all the other four gears and reverse are still working fine.

Sun fading and light fraying of fabric on top edge of rear seat back
Sun cracked dashboard; (common fault on these)
Sun faded top edges on front door cards
Small patch of worn fabric on offside of driver's seat bolster
Good used set of front seats as covers in same original fabric available

There is a slight seepage of water on the glass sunroof; this is very minor and happens if the car isn't parked level and the water ponds in the corner of the glass. Sealant or new seals would fix the issue

There is a slight seepage of water around the N/ S/ Rear light cluster which allows ingress into the boot. This only happens when it's been hammering with rain but the light cluster needs taking out and resealing with non-setting compound

New paintwork on new near-side front wing doesn't quite match
There is a small dent on the roof the size of a 10p piece
There are minor blemishes and dings (only minor)

The under-bonnet insulation foam has deteriorated with age.
A new set of self-adhesive under-bonnet foam is supplied

The cassette player part of the stereo has decided to stop working

Other than that it has never failed to start in my 30 years of ownership and it is a model that is renowned for reliability and build quality. It is easy to park and has a deep spacious boot that can fit most things. Overall an excellent practical classic that is engaging and communicative to drive!

I've lost count of the people who've come up to me and said; 'I used to have one of these...' and the positive reflections that followed about their Scirocco ownership. Some of them showed remorse for getting rid of theirs...

Drive something different, drive something unique!

P. S. I'm only selling because I am relocating to a country where the steering wheel is on the opposite side otherwise I would have kept it.

Included in the sale:
Original set of alloy wheels with good tyres
Some parts including spare headlamps
Original tool roll with original jack, wheel-brace and screwdriver
One key operates all locks including fuel filler cap
Specialist performance air filter cleaning kit with re-oiling spray

An engaging driving experience with a great sound!
