« on: 07 March 2011, 20:52 »
Hi, i bought a mk4 golf 1.6 last night, and to me it seems a little bit fast for a 1.6, i have just come from a mk4 1.4 so maybe thats the reason, but it does seem a LOt faster , plus havin a bit of trouble veryfiing milage, im thinkin its had a engnine change but my engine doesent seem to look like the other 1.6 engines i have googled lol, what the hell is under my bonnnet lol, ill add some pics tomorrow of the engine, and hopefully someone can shed some light on it

The little different colour patch on the black plastic cover? Thats where the 2.0 badge should be!  :undecided:

Where did you buy it, private or garage? What did dvla identify it as?
