It’s been a long time since I’ve written up a Scirocco, but this red one is a great way to get back into it. The main thing the Scirocco gives up to the Audi Ur-Quattro for me is the amount of wheels driving; it wins for me in the looks department. Refreshingly stock and with less than 140k miles, this could be a great buy.
