You should have bought my lads, the back end of it was mint (not a Polo) it was just the front of his that had perforated!

But I had the front of this welded up the other year....

Besides I wouldn't buy a non-supercharged one cause the blower makes me laugh when I floor it.

Mathewson's has one in stock ready for auction. Not that I'd ever recommend Mathewson's but this one is rotten to the core.

I've already got a rotten one thanks ...

I rung them today to add the nsr bumper mount to the welding list. I'd forgotten to mention it when talking to them before. No idea when it'll be done though.

I spoke to the garage again today.

The brackets arrived & are good. The bushes are in the subframe ready to refit & the welding is currently happening, so hopefully I'll get it back by the end of next week (they said maybe this week, but I know how their estimates slip).

And then when it blows up as it's been modded, assuming I don't write it off against a wall, or skip, first of course.

Meh. At this price range they're disposable. Robson reckons 50mpg on a run which will be a lovely novelty.
