« on: 19 May 2009, 18:49 »


i really hope this works!

my new car, 1991 8v gti.

i bought it from traff22 off here, but it was in hampshire 239 miles away from me! :laugh:

as it stood on friday when i bought it:

mot till oct this year and taxed till july, lowered 40mm on shocks and supersport springs, single light grill. clear headlights, fogs and indicators, 16v rear lights. it has had a respray and there are only a tiny few imperfections in the paint. door armour plates. 15" bbs ra wheels with toyo proxes tyres. full stainless steel system including manifold twin 3" backbox.

now for the good bit........

Very nice, who built the engine, just wondering what crank they used.

well tbh i have not got a clue the guy i bought it off said he had bought the engine complete, so i did a bit of research on it and found he had bought it off a member on southern dubs, traced that back through the old threads and basically had a pop at it, im glad i did! :smiley:

a few things wrong with it on first look, needs 2 bottom arms, the exhaust was in need of new rubbers, some trim needed putting back on, numberplates were on the piss, the seats dont match the doorcards (not really a problem, but it gets on my nerves) needs a tyre and prob new discs and pads. oh and the armour plates need a rub and a spray.
