I'm Tom, from Staffordshire. I wierdly like my Bora.
It's a 2005 Sport, PD130 ASZ.
I got the car as a p/x against my previous bagged A4 avant (below). I knew it needed a bit of work, but always fancied one so thought why not.
Previous Avant. Cheeky 140 TDi, Accuair Switchspeed, etc etc scene shoot. I loved it, but fancied a change.
Now onto the Bora. Usual late sport spec, so heated seats, parking sensors, etc.
In addition to the usual stuff;
Remappppz to 180ish
V2 Airlift - not as nice as some of the Accuair stuff I've had but seems to work fine so.
Massive straight though that sounds like shoot and looks like shoot, I've just not got round to changing it yet.
I got it with these JR rep things on, looked shoot, so sold those and rolled on these RS6 reps for a while.
Around this time, I made some interior upgrades. Modified the clocks so they have chrome rings, needle sweep etc. Painted the interior trim glossy silver, and replaced the gearstick (which was loose for some reason) with a different one.
Dash said STOP as I was mid brake change.
Ended up buying some Rotiform IND-Ts, staggered (Can you tell I like these wheels?)
Yes my wife and I have matching number plates. We are totes adorbz.
Retrofitted projectors into the headlights, not my favourite work so will be redoing these at some point.
Daily drove it 40 miles a day or so to work, fun little car. Always liked the shape, I like the interior etc. Things were going so well until one day, driving home from work, the clutch pedal went down and wouldn't come up again. Oh dear. In the middle of rush hour traffic. Oh dear oh dear.
Ended up turning it off, putting it in first, turning it on and doing a full send into a side road until it got recovered.
Aaaaand it's sat at the back of my driveway since then, diagnosed as Master Cylinder fault. I've got a new one of those and I'm in the process of changing that over.
Plans for the future is to get rid of this shoot exhaust, tidy it up a bit as it's a bit tatty, make the interior more comfortable as it's a bit dated and the seats aren't too comfy, and drive it. Front bumper could do with some paint thrown at it as it's fading a bit. This seems to be the only colour that nobody is breaking too, joys.
In the meantime I've been driving my Volvo V50 (below), just can't really get along with it. So selling this will be funding the mods on the Bora and a new bathroom!
So if anyone wants a V50 let me know, happy to do a deal on a MK4 estate or a Bora
