MK2 owners near Ashford Kent

Hi just got my new 1989 scirocco GT. Would like to compare the clutch stiffness and idling with a known good one. Also scirocco chit chat.
Anyone local open to a visit?

Hi,
The clutch can be a bit stiff, if that's what you're concerned about. If it seams overly stiff then consider a new clutch cable and at the same time check the routing and where it passes through the bulkhead. They can sometimes be off centre and start cutting though the bulkhead. That area is also weak and the addition of a strengthener plate is a good idea.

What's up with the idle and what carb is fitted?
