Any comments/thoughts/advice on this ? I am tempted for my first dip in the 101 arena.

Its the year I have always looked for and radio body..... seems reasonably priced.

My main concerns were the 300tdi conversion/radio conversion and gnarly blue hoses.... over worried ?

Everything always looks nice re-sprayed :)

I wouldn't be worried about that. It looks like a tidy conversion and you will be surprised how usable it is with a 300tdi.

Yes those hosed are that color because they are the kind that won't collapse or have give for the turbo ?? I believe. I would go drive it, see how she goes with the 300tdi.

Not having driven a TDI it does seem strange that after all the work of a conversion it is up for sale. It would have fetched a higher amount (possibly) with the standard V8. .....Just saying 8)

Don't think you will be disappointed if you test drove this. A lot of work has gone into this vehicle and has been completed to a very good standard.
