Chris I really wouldn't spend too much on a 2.0 gti,
Really not worth the cost. If you want to mod a golf then sell the 2.0 and buy a 1.8t

Hi mate, that's the only downside to the car the engine, I bought it cheap £550 with near full on service history, only down side as I say is the engine, I have considered the 1.8 turbo but also really like the 1.9 GT TDI?

Think I'll do as you say and save my money.

At £550, any decent exhaust is likely to cost you nearly as much as the car,
Both the 1.8t or the derv are far better cars than the 2.0.
I own a 2.0 but im under no illusion. Its a piece of crap!
