Hi guy's

I have been looking for a Caddy for a while now and have been visiting the site to keep an eye on the for sale section.
I didn't want to make myself known untill I'd got one. I have now bought one from eBay on Sunday night. Its an 86C, factory black, 1.6 petrol 4 speed, totally standard bar a set of Mk2 alloys. Looking forward to chatting to you folks and maybe even meeting some of you at one or two of the meets.


Speak soon

The Mk1 has a 2ltr 8v engine with a spec list as long as your arm and the chassis has Audi A3 280 disc's and calipers and Mk3 rear disc's, Koni's and Quaife diff in th 5 speed 16v box. I'll have to post the full spec when I find my list. Got my work cut out for me. I'll be wanting an axel flip exchange as well. Its all going in the Caddy

Whats wrong with the mk1? Seems a waste to break it if the chassis is in good nick.

If you break the car which seems a shame could you post up some pictures of the front break setup for people to see and if your going rear disc's on the caddy do a search for the info as it's not straight forward on a UK axle.

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

The Mk1 is coming apart for a restoration. It failed the last MOT because it needs welding underneath. She'll be going back on the road, don't worry about that. Itís got 266,000 miles on the clock and two folders full of receipts it would be a shame to see it scraped.
