  1. Exterior Trim on mk3 golf

    I was wondering what peoples views are on the plastic trim on the mk3 golf!

  4. Hi, I was wondering what will be needed if I want to put a desktop PC into my car. A few Q's: 1. Will I need more then the stock car battry to run the PC and the monitor? 2. Can I use a big battery and a big alternator or use lots of small (normal size batteries)? Basically just wondering how to power the computer and monitor, not sure about keeping the battery in car now because that is already running sound system and alarm and all the norm. Hope you guys can help, Toby

  12. 1.8T conversion

    Hi, was just wondering what the best way is to go about converting a 1.8t engine into my mk3 golf gti. I have very little mechanical knowledge so I would not be able to do it myself but have been quoted 7000 to get an engine fitted, is this price good because it seems alot when i could sell my car and keep the 7000 and buy a faster car. Do love my vw golf though so would love to do this engine swap. Hope you can help, Tobi
  13. G60 in a mk3 GTI

    Hi, I own a mk3 golf fti 2l 16v and was wondering if anyone knew about putting a g60 supercharger from a corrado onto my 2.0l engine. Would alot of work have to be done? Is it possible? Or would it be better to find a corrado g60 complete with engine and put that in instead? Last question, how much would my insirance rise if I did either mods? Thanks in advance, Tobi
  14. Specs of mk3 vw golf

    Hi, I am looking at getting a mk3 gti 2.0 16v gti and I was wondering if there is anything that I should look out for when inspecting it that anyone knows of! Whats your view on gun metal grey as a colour? How can I tell it is a 16v and not 8v by looking at the engine because person is not sure which it is? Were leather seats an optional extra when mk3 gti golfs came out? Should I wait for one with leather seats? This is what the advert says: 1996 VOLKSWAGEN GOLF 2.0 GTi 3 DR, N reg. 66000 miles, finished in metallic grey with contrasting cloth upholstery, pas, alloys, remote locking, e/windows, only 66,000 miles, fsh, in lovely condition. £3,495 ....does this sound dodgy? Sorry about all the questions but a newbie here Tobi

  20. Should I change my VW Golf

    Cool thanks for the advice everyone! I have opted to maybe change to a mk3 GTI 2.0 16v because I like the look so no need to change much, so save money and also it will be able to carry me and 4 others without slowing down alot! Thanks for all the advice, Tobi Would love a R32 or Corrado Storm but insurance is way to high for me ,maybe in ten years
  21. Should I change my VW Golf

    Hi, I have a mk3 vw golf 1.8 GL and I like it but I am always wanting a GTI. I was wondering should I go through all the hassle of selling my golf and getting a GTI mk3. I love my 1.8 GL but I think that if I lower it and put some alloys on, people will laugh because it is not a GTI. Also I either have just me in my car which is fine or I have 5 people and this makes my GL asluggish on acceleration. Should I go through all the bother of selling and buying or should I just keep my GL and shut up!
  22. mk2 GTI 1.8 16v

    [ QUOTE ] I used to have mk 3 GL in Flash Red. But now, she is gone! R.I.P. Red Barron! [/ QUOTE ] I think it may have come back and is now with me, my vw is a golf mk3 gl in flash red Thanks for all the replys! My only decision for a mk2 gti 1.8 16v engine is that I was told that it is slighty quicker than the mk3 gti engines. I will ask a few mechanics about prices! Thanks, Tobi
