hey, any history about car appreciated.

hi, first time ive found the scottish section on here lol, i usually use 106oc as i have had other 106's in the past and still own my gti.

i bought my rallye a few months back with no previous history. the guy couldnt tell me much about the car. its got a 106 rallye register tax disc holder and a rallye register sticker on the rear window. just wondered if anyone knew any history about the car, i have changed the timing belt on the car and it would appear to have a kent cam vernier pulley on it and im curious as to what camshaft the engine is running without taking it out.

ill post up pics, comments very much welcome.

the way i got it




when i bought it, the previous owner said he got his mate to change the clutch in it, it was making a really loud noise which i knew was the thrust bearing, heres what it looked like when i look the gearbox out


i then tidy'd the car up and changed the front bumper and added a laguna lower splitter


it then sailed through an mot, just scraping through on emissions


recently got myself an omp halfcage


got myself some speedline comp 2's and fitted rally style mudflaps




cheers, james.

Alright, would be good to meet you and see it, I've recently bought another rallye that I expect to have on the road in the next couple of months.
