If you are thinking of viewing or purchasing a MK11 why not post and see if a member can assist you and give some advice. They may be willing to travel and offer assistance when you go to see a prospective purchase. Please be sensible when asking these fine people to help you as travelling 100's of miles and the time it takes isn't really practical. Try and find a recommended Local member of the club or visit the Links page as some of our specialist restorers may well be approachable.
