Ok. I have managed to break this thread. Got so many bits I need to update but I have hit the attachment limits on this thread. I think a website or something else is in mind. Any ideas on where to go will be great.

 

In total there are the following I need to update

X904NJO, X907NJO, Y937DWL, L6UPO (Red Gti), L6UPO Blue Tdi

I need to add two more. (7 cars in total)

Could you not add it all to the Wiki page?

Yeah, when Matt switched server he apparently forgot to copy the wiki over... shame, as we spent hours doing a really good buyers guide, covering all the most common faults/issues and stuff to watch out for when buying a loop.

Agreed. The other option I suggested while ago a creating a dedicated wiki to Vw Press cars (UK). However this did not go anywhere. If I was too do this option I would need a lot of help due to vast amount of models vw has had

L5 upo is dead now friend of mine scrapped it last year but the full leather air bag interior lives on in my sport 

That's sad. Thanks Morgan for the heads up. I had the twin to this interior. It was 1 of 2 interior.

Update time. A bit more research later and a few bits of information have come to light

 

So the photo of the press car L5upo that appeared in EVO. This is NOT the same car as believed to be OW51LCZ. Two sepearte cars. However to clairfy on the subject. V43RBW is probably this car. Two many similarities. Which leads onto

 

V43RBW. Where do i stat on that? Well i think this sums it up 

"As of the 31/5/2019, the car has been dismantled for spares. Before this date I did make the owner aware of this cars history, they briefly changed their mind and offered this car to me, I asked for some detailed photos of the car which unfortunately they did not provide and they changed their mind to break the car up. A sad end to car I felt worth saving."

 

S112JWN - as it turns out the plate was not real. A vw polo estate debunked this myth (from the press office too)

Also there a Lupo Gti cup car press car too (that one is quite interesting, currently compiling the info togther on that.

 

So this is still soldiering on. Its a shame my upload space is full. Otherwise i would put new photos etc up. I am putting this togther into a book. Currently on about the 7th draft. If you are interested give  me a shout.

That is probably a press car rich. But what for i am not sure. Its got a regier style grill. Not seen that on a Bora before - might of even found it. If you go onto car analytics (£1.99) it will tell you if it is one. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Volkswagen-Driver-magazine-May-2003-Issue-36/133286106743?hash=item1f08789677:g:N9sAAOSwcWJb2E6E
