Doing the maths over that tank of petrol was 32.5mpg.

Fairly respectable given the hills and the heft of the thing.

I really fancy an early galaxy. The shape has aged well.

To create more room under the bonnet while working just remove the lower scuttle/Bulkhead extension, it's a simple weather strip removal then three 10mm bolts and a little wrestling to remove panel from the nearside corner on my Sharan and I assume its similar on yours.

No, not at all, but they aaaare practical, and could look good with the treatment?

Are these 5x100 in keeping with their vag DNA?

No, off the top of my head they’re 4x110 or some peculiar number.

I was looking at Mondeo alloys for it but they don't fit (or so it seems).

They're 5x112 according to the usually reliable wheel-size.com

MANY WHEEL OPTIONS AVAILABLE.

Personally I would fit the Mustang tri-bars that I have in stock; 5x114.3 so will wobble bolt straight on.

Si you are correct, had a proper look at some oem ghia alloys I’m watching for no particular reason and they are 5 jobbies.

Later models are 5x108 like most modern fords/Volvos/jags.
