i have owned this car for years

it has seen different sets of wheels, exhausts and bits n bobs but now it has:

4-1 4 branch manifold
6x4 oval magnex exhaust (not by choice it was all i had spare)
14" original wheels painted white (which people seemed to like)
pipercross induction box
coilovers
brembo grooved discs
green stuff pads
2 front leather corrado seats (i like to sit low)
stripped out back
dvd player with basically no speakers as the car is stripped out
german plates

oh and power steering that i fitted myself...not a nice job

it will soon have a 2l 16v engine and afresh lick of paint....hopefully...and a set of king 7x15" old school wheels if i can be bothered to refurb them

here are some pics

at the F1 hotel in pbo with my mates and there mk1 (he is a fendubbers member) and corrado

my valver 26092008332

on the drive with my mk2 8v and my 200 mk3 16v donor car


there have been many times when i have wanted to get rid of it because it has caused me so much grief like having it vandalised more than once by jealous people and then it sat in a barn for 6months due to the bottom end being f*cked and leaking oil from absoutely everywhere.

but now i am growing to like it again...its just the power, speed an the noise the thing makes when its at high revs

the car is not perfect but she owes me to much to ever get rid of so i figured i might aswell pour more money into it

Wheyyy nice rims, yup, they'll be an absolute bitch to clean, mine are too. Mesh'd BBS Rims like these make VW's though in my opinion.

SHITE the heat is on.

Love seeing build threads like this where people get hands on. Good luck with the conversion.

I am liking the white rims. Not so sure on the exhaust!

an abf'd mk2 gti would be my dream car! that's why I bought a mk2 ibiza 16v cos it's the closest thing to it! mk3 golf is too heavy to really make good use of the power. your car is looking reall nice!
