Auto Retro / French Scimitars in the spotlight

Not a 4TC (hopefully :wink: ) but a Sport! My brother and I, we had GTi in the past and I'm still dreaming of a 16v. Regarding the main topic, no I haven't contacted the french side but I have only experimented my Scimitar for 800km and since I'm waiting the papers. So, except to explain why I bough...

Nice! I have participated to the one regarding the Chimaera recently, it's a good idea to collect owners' feedbacks.

Thanks, I've done some research but I missed this one. So it's almost impossible to see it in the engine bay?

The adventures of Tom Thumb the daily driver

Nice presentation and nice car!
Changing the wheels was a good move indeed.
It make me remember when I bought my Chimaera, I had to stop several times during the trip back to home due to overheating. Normal people would have bring back the car to the seller but too late, I was bitten by the virus :D.
