PKD Soarer

So for those interested in the cars I use to mock all of my parts out and test parts on, here is my 1991 Soarer 2.5TT.  I also have a v8 GT Limited and I’ll do a write up on that soon.

I’ve owned the car just over two years now and it’s a keeper for sure.  It’s a POV spec TT so only options are folding electric mirrors and that’s about it.  Upon buying it from a good friend it had HSD’s, ARC intercooler, TTE alloys and the MINES ecu, other than that it was totally standard.  Two years of messing about and here is my current spec:
