I bought a T3 Syncro with one rear diff lock, original MV 2.1L 95 HP engine and a 'camperize' camper conversion last week.
I used to own a Syncro back in Germany, which I missed sooo much that I had to get one in Australia too. The one in Germany is with my Dad now. It is a 16" two diff lock camper with a 70 hp Turbo Diesel engine. We had to fit a new gear box a few years back, but otherwise it's been fine ever since.
I live in Carlton in Melbourne for almost 3 years now, and I will be here for at least another year. Then I might have to leave the country (Business Visa expires when the jobs expires). My partner and I decided to do so in style, by taking the Syncro around Australia and the ship it home to Europe from Perth. We gonna take it with us to Europe, Sorry :-).
I have a question to the community already:
Does anyone know a reliable and knowledgeable VW mechanic that would be proud and happy to give my new Syncro the 'all over'. I even think ti have a engine rebuilt done. I am getting married in a few month and my folks want to give us the 'Syncro-rejuvination-treatment' as a wedding gift.
I was told that Volkscare in Boronia are very good, but I just thought I get a few more opinions, and where to better get them then here?
Great to be here!
