I found a 2004 Wagon unloved in Dubai in March this year.
With all that can go wrong with these cars, I should have ignored it, Japan import, no history, no registration, no battery, no wipers, no radio, but I couldn't let it die there, was too cheap for that!

Leaky transmission seal and many suspension arms replaced to get it on the road, but I've been using it everyday since, so far, so good.

It must be the only W8 Wagon in the Uae, I saw one saloon for sale.
Parts are awkward here, mail order from US best option and the local VW dealer has no idea what's going on under the bonnet.

Engine check light had me scared last month, but was just a leaky air pipe.

Not sure how to post photos?

Good luck with your project. I've got a new project of my own. So welcome to the forums, from another newbie.

As far as posting pictures, try photobucket or another pic hosting site then copy the link in.

Works, nice looking wagon! The rims suit the car nicely too.
