Time for some upgrading !!

I'm 'sick' of the lack of comfort that seems to be normal with a narrowed beam, so i've build meself a new T2a beam.
Only problem is that the 7,5x17 Rota's won't fit anymore...
I'm very much in love with the look of my Rota's (especialy the 9" rears), so for the front (the track width increases
45mm per side!) i'm after some old skool 16" BBS racing wheels (only at the front) which come with higher et's.

Something like this... (and the Rota 9" rears stay where they are!)

The engine is running on it's last legs... it's done some 95.000km's and i'm lacking power, leaking oil, less fuell efficiened, runnig hotter then it's
used to be and so on.
A good friend of mine build the engine and drove it some 20.000km before i bought it from him in 2003 and put on an extra 75.000km.
The downside is that my good friend Brian -who build the 1776 type1 engine- died in 2010 in a one way car crash in Belgium

There are two options in my point of view;
1) Rebuilding the 1776 by a VW/Porsche specialist or
2) Convert it to Subaru EJ20 NA (115hp) power...

No useless sh*t on my roofrack !!
