pulls very well, I love it! speaking to the previous owner about vr6 swaps  :lipsrsealed:

Glad it runs well.   :cool:

Wanna VR6 it?... Work two jobs.   :grin:
was planning on working weekends  :lipsrsealed:
one part of my mind is saying vr6 it but the other side is saying keep it standard

not updated in a while as nothing has really happened as saving up, apart from some twonk has hit my mirror  :sad: car will be going in the garage after january and I shall have a mk3 to waft about in, whilst the mk2 will be having welding sorted, the rust all taken out and smoothed over and sprayed, then eventually garage next door at work will be happy to drop a 1.8t in it, but he wants me to go for the tt 225 engine but they're alot  :shocked: and keep it looking pretty much as it is
edit, forgot that it still struggles getting into 1st gear in the mornings, drivers window opens about an inch before its too stiff to put any further down and heaters make a humming noise when on number 1 and 2, maf is now working but says i'm managing around 13mpg on a decent run, said i was getting 16mpg to blackpool yet from £65 i got 350 miles

Plans have changed, never finding time to sort it out and done a list of what I wanted doing and 4k to be how I want it to be was putting me off so unfortunately a friend came and bought it for not far off what I paid for it and I've swapped the coilovers over onto the vr6

Bit of a thread revival, after owning the a3 for 2 years, I'm still missing this mk2, if anybody knows it whereabouts or where to look, would be much appreciated
