Jon's Millenium mk4 1.8T
« on: 19 March 2012, 12:33 »
As some of you might know i have wanted a GTi for bloody ages and now i finally have one!  :grin:

I took the long (ish) drive from Bracknell to Cambridge on saturday morning to go and see the car, it belonged to sveed1.8T on here and was the first one I had gone to look at after selling my astra, from the pics i knew it was very well looked after and when i arrived it really was as good as the pictures! :smiley:

sveed was a great guy and filled me in on everything I wanted to know about the car, we took it for a test drive and I knew i had to buy it!

Anyway enough of the boring stuff heres the spec:

2000 Reg
1.8T ARZ Engine
R-Tech Remap
Pearlescent Black (R32 Black I think)
Bora Sport Clocks
Retro fitted Cruise Control
Original Recaro GTi Seats

I love it already and had a nice drive back with it and have already hammered through a fair bit of petrol, will have to have my eco head on from now on :evil:

Havent got many pics yet but heres a couple to get an idea and will get some more later:




Plans for now are to lower it a little bit and get some nice wheels!

Purchased a nice few extras now its payday. :smiley:

So when they arrive I will be installing a Pipercross panel filter and a forge 007p.

What are peoples opinions on drilling the air box on a 1.8T? Am I better off just smoothing it out?

Managed to get the forge and the panel filter for just under £90  :smiley:

The panel filter arrived today and I'm just waiting on delivery of the DV

Smooth it out is a good move.
