Sold the 23 window and the mint 72 Bay...........believe it or not this lot was not that expensive, the majority of the retro fit stuff was from flea bay, for example the porker wheels and adapters were £240....so lots of bagains if you hunt around, the most expensive items were the replacement running gear, genuine VAG parts for the T25 are very, very expensive.
