    The engine is back where it belongs. In the rear.

    I've been looking at T5's all day at work, not the prettiest car in the VW lot, but wouldn't knock one back either especially if it had a GT2 motor in the boot.

    Guys, your hearing aids need an oil change. I could hear the guy loud and clear...I had no probs to understand him. What's your problem?

    PS: I certainly would accept the T5 as a present, I certainly would not spend 150 grand on a car. I might be mad but I am not crazy. I would flog it off to the next best buyer and get myself a nice T3 with a set of new tyres and Bilstein B4 shocks...maybe a lick of new paint....and a rebuild gearbox....and a rebuild engine....and new suspension rubbers and, and, and. Did I mention a new wind screen?

    One of my bosses drives a Cayenne - I have moved it in the car park at work but thats it. They look just like a lot of other mum taxi's on the road, which is what this one is - might have leather seats but it still has a booster seat in the back and McDonalds wrapper on the floor. Not sure how she still has her licence though...

    I haven't driven a T5 yet.
