Bought sight unseen, the first time I set eyes on it will be when I collect it!

I need to also go find out where it is currently residing.

Same thoughts here, they look a bit like our old 9N Polo's keys. But not too similar, and what VAG products are popular here?

Next clue: It's European and has a turbo

Had a quick peek at it. It's a bit shabby inside, but then it has done 210k miles.

Keyfob doesn't work. Interesting mod inside the fob to make a smaller battery fit.

Collection start!

First thing, go down to the garage and collect my trusty steed that reliably* gets me in everyday.
IMG_20160920_092705.jpg
This thing gets me in to work in around 15-20 minutes. Bus takes 30-45 minutes. Car 45-1hr. No brainer really.

The money saved makes me feel less guilty buying cars!

Also, if the car FTP me on the way back, it provides a practical, alternative way of getting home. :D

This won't be a very long one. I can literally see it out of the office buildings window...
