Mine lives in Laindon at my parents house in their garage and only comes out when it's sunny and for trackdays really (been there since November).

I see a couple of silver ones and a red one around Bas sometimes. I think there is another yellow one in Wickford.

Heard of them but this is the first VW I've owned. There's usually meets down at morrisons most weeks unless there's a bigger meet elsewhere. I remember when I worked at the McDonalds and literally everyone would be round the drive thru at 12am-2am :roflmao:

I would've loved that! I'm only 20 and unfortunately missed out on the Max Power days! Really into old Fords &Vauxhalls (70's - 90's). Never thought I'd own a Leon til I saw this gem pop up for the right price.

I can only imagine how hilarious it looks to someone younger but back in the day max power was the sh*t lmao. I remember watching two mk1 escorts drift around a mini roundabout with a crowd of like 100 people clapping. I got my Leon in December and always wanted one. If you ever need a spare set of hands mate hit me up!

It looked great haha, I have a few of the DVD's somewhere of max power that I used to watch growing up, I just like the whole idea of each car was "unique" in it's own way. Nowadays we just get financed cars that all look the same sat in a car park doing nothing. Might take you up on that offer at somepoint, thinking about putting a body kit onto mine and getting rid of the plastic trim and maybe a few other ideas here and there [B)].
