hello i am Darryn i live on the costa blanca spain i have a 1987 caddy with a 16v conversion its a good truck all round and i can understand the following they get,personally i am a rear wheel drive fan so the caddy inevitably is starting to get a bit dull only so much understeer one man can take so its got to go,i would show you a picture but i cant make this bloody thing work.anybody interested in a dutch caddy(lhd)in spain its up for grabs,oz wheels and discs all round surely are a plus.2500 euros.i will be visiting the south east of england at christmas in the truck so maybe that will be of use to somebody

You can get most of the understeer out with your setup. Stiffer rear springs and shocks help.

Don't bail on 'er...A1 VW one of the most fun rides you can have...at any price.

Don't mention the bimmer here son, leave it at the door.
Sort out the sounds and cruise in her, she deserves it, its not all about rwd slide action.
Love the dub, she will love you back baby!!!

My Bimmer is an AWD ix, fit for the Wife...the CADDY is MINE...

Oversteer (or drifting) may look cool but unless you are rallying it's the slow way around a corner...
