Hello there! 22-yr-old California owner of a wonderful Bradley GT. I bought it from a gentleman who was on here, and was somewhat active. I will be posting some pictures of the car. I was able to drive it home, and she is a beast! I will plan on posting videos and images on my YouTube Account, in order to keep up with documentation. So far, the electrical is done better than I could've done, but there is two shorts that I am currently working on tracking down in the car. Big dreams are going into this car, as were apparent with the previous owner. I know I will have questions (the current one is what the best technique for adding oil is!) about this car often, and this will be my place to go! Beyond ecstatic to be a part of everyone else here, and hope to see other projects build up along with mine!
Not sure what the car is classified as, but I'm just going to assume it's an exotic.
Hi Josh. Welcome to the forum. I am glad you found it. The trick too add oil is: Open the bottle, set ti up against the filler neck and start to tip in in, the cap should be the top corner if the oil bottle is at a 45(+/-). Tip the bottle further, addin the oil to the engine. Then, as the oil runs out (and, hopefully into the engine) rotate the bottle so less and less oil is in the area below the neck. The 'belly' as I call it. You can get MOST of the oil out of the bottle and into the engine that way.
A bike will keep you young, the wrong bike will stop you from getting older, there is a difference.
Don’t forget how little oil a VW engine actually holds. Three quarts! If you are a quart low, you are 1/3 low. Keep a VERY close eye on the level, especially if you have a leak or burn some. These engines are very hard on oil and it is a major contributor to keeping your engine cool too. Change often and don’t use cheap stuff.

geddes66 : Thanks for the advice! I struggled with putting oil in directly, so I bought a funnel that has a filler neck connected. Makes it easy to get the oil far enough into the vehicle without spilling it all over the exhaust.
I thought the engine was burning oil, but it turns out there was a hose running to the oil plate that needed to be adjusted and tightened. No more leaks, and the car doesn't eat any more oil than the original VW motors do!
