    No they went 1.4 polo didn't they?
     
  3. As I said did they miss a trick in not buying Subaru on license?

    Yes because it's a better engine than VWs own attempt at water cooling theirs
     
  5. 1.4 Flex fuel Fox engine but basically the same

  7. Think VW vans where mainly diesel at that time so suppose they could have gone for the Scooby boxer diesel?

    They'll be glad they didn't because they're beset with crank failure issues.

  11. Just re-read this:
    https://www.gov.uk/government/uploa...ical-interest-substantial-change-guidance.pdf

    I believe production of the air cooled brazilian ceased in 2005 when eplaced with the water cooled motor which ended production in 2014. So a scoobie conversion Would seem to me to a change which is not a substantial change as it is a change of a type that can be demonstarated to have been made when production was ongoing, and/or within 10 years of the end of production.

    Below:

    The following are considered acceptable (not substantial) changes if they fall into these specific categories

    • changes of a type, that can be demonstrated to have been made when vehicles of the type were in production or in general use (within ten years of the end of production);
