    My 1994 Cabbie

    This is my 1994 2.0L Cabbie. Bought for £600 2 years ago. Been garaged 12 months and have bought it out to air. Will soon be tidying it up and adding bits to it (not that its had bits done already) so thought I'd let all see. Since I had it I have changed the interior, wheels and general tidy up. Have replaced the original 2.0L with another but the 2E engine is not the best. I have a 1.9D donor which will be dropping in it in the near future. Any way here's some shot for the time being.

    This was what it looked like the day I bought it.

    Sadly for the moment yes. But am looking to up grade to a TDI in the future.

    Unsure of the colour code. Need to check as want to re-spray the engine bay when the engine is out.

    Nice colour and looks pretty tidy too, I would opt for a TDI though.

    I wouldn't want to do a engine swap then wish I had gone for the better engine later down the line.

    Also I'm picking up a Cabby for breaking later if you need any bits for this?

    That needs a VR6, not a diesel!
