  1. Nezzi's 8v GTI soon to be VR6

    Thought I would post some pictures of how the car is sitting just now. Finally got some motivation back to finish the engine rebuild and get it in the car, will have more updates over the next few weeks. Wheels ideally need blasted and powder coated and still need to properly sort the ride height, I have added some fake all red rears as well. Slowly getting somewhere near decent though it’s sat about so long it needs some work bring the paint back up for next year.
  2. 97 MK3 GOLF VR6 HIGHLINE

    ***£1300 ONO*** P reg 1996/7 mk3 Golf VR6 Highline Auto 123k Stainless exhaust 6 branch manifold Coilovers Full leather Original Tape Cassette Radio Fischer Tape Holder Decent history and lots of receipts Last serviced around 3k miles ago, had a replacement fuel pump less than a year ago and also a new fuel pump relay as it was playing up. Around 1.5k miles ago the car had the gearbox oil replaced and filter done at the same time. There are around 30 automatic highlines left in the UK apparently! Bad Points: Needs 2x wings ( I have a pair in the garage in black ). Windscreen needs replaced due to a stone kicking up. O/S/R arch needs a touch up due to previous wheels rubbing. Bonnet has a few scratches on it, but should polish out. I have added pictures of the bad points, as previously mentioned I have a pair of wings in Black that will be included in the sale! This is my wife's car and she is gutted to be selling it, however it's not being used due to her having an R32 now. I can have the issues rectified for the right deal but that would take a bit of time and would cost more than advertised! Please ask if this option interests you! I also have some split rims that could be added to the deal but again these will not be cheap!

    RC's are half done, hopefully finished this week then up for sale ( maybe lol )
  4. Nezzi's 8v GTI soon to be VR6

    So not updated this in a while but been busy refurbing the RC's for this year. So far I'm half way through but like so many times before a set of wheels popped up at reasonable money and couldn't say no! Loved these for ages! So be a quick spruce up with some silver paint and already have some tyres and various width adapters sitting there. VR6 rebuild is nearing completion as well but that will most likely get put in over the winter as I really want to get out and drive it this year! Sadly the RC's will be getting sold ( advert to follow once they are finished )
  5. Nezzi's 8v GTI soon to be VR6

    Progress has been nonexistent due to my birthday yesterday and the inconvenience that is work! However back on it tomorrow so should get the head painted and back on the block, can then start to get things built back up. I did manage to have my Brother in law blast these 2 mounts, some other things going to him this week to get blasted as well. Question is should I give them a coat of paint of do they not need painted??
  6. Nezzi's 8v GTI soon to be VR6

    Bore wear actually looks good, but yeah the gasket is a bit on the ropey side. Will be cleaning up the surfaces tomorrow, will post some more pictures later.
  7. Nezzi's 8v GTI soon to be VR6

    Well bit more work on the engine tonight, bit ott with the pictures but wanted to keep track of it all and some people may like seeing them? lol. Any way, cylinder head off tonight. Still one or 2 wee bits to come off like the water pump and oil cooler. Job for this weekend is to get the block and head cleaned up. Paint the block, head and gearbox then make a start getting it all back together. Head Gasket, Bolts and new crank seals will be here tomorrow as well.
  8. Nezzi's 8v GTI soon to be VR6

    Well finally got my finger out and brought my VR lump down to the garage at the house. So went out to the garage for half an hour or so tonight to make a start stripping it for a rebuild. Its been sat a while but turned over so easily. Hopefully get some progress over the next week or so. Plan is strip down and clean the block/head/gearbox then paint before rebuilding with alot of new parts lol. May stick some cams in while im at it if i can pick some up for decent money.
  9. Nezzi's 8v GTI soon to be VR6

    The steering wheel and gearknob were listed on a local forum, got them both for £25! Stupidly sold them a while later, seriously wish i hadnt now lol
  10. Nezzi's 8v GTI soon to be VR6

    UPDATE: Been considering selling my wheels and getting something new but can't seem to find something I really want plus the money i save buying new wheels will be spent on parts for the VR engine rebuild. So plan is to strip the lacquer off the lips and fully polish them up, thinking i may change the colour of them as well either Gold, Mystic Blue or keep them red??

Then get he centres away to be blasted and powder coated. Few other jobs to be done over the next month or so. Hopefully finally get this finished!! lol.
  11. MK3 GOLF VR6 HIGHLINE

    Thanks! Tbh its pretty clean apart from the very bottom of the front wings. Noticed yesterday when swapping the wheels that they are starting to go, so will pick up a pair of replacements and get them painted along with the rest of the front end.

    Pretty sure its just a standard Gti lip. I want to go VR6 lip but it scraps on the drive already ?
  13. Thought I would post up some pictures of the wife's daily 1997 mk3 Golf VR6. Its a Highline and also an automatic, So far we have only done some maintenance work to make sure it all works right before we do any modifications. Having said that it does already have a full stainless system with 6 branch manifold and a set of coilovers. Plans will be fairly low key with it being a daily driver. We have some standard headlights to fit as the light output is terrible with the smoked units, also got some Rear smoked VR6 units to fit. I have a few sets of wheels in the garage including Porsche Twist reps and 16'' Merc E-Class wheels. Will most likely be the Merc wheels as the Twists are 17x9 on the rear lol. Will be a few other bits and pieces as and when i acquire them. Some pictures as it stands just now and a few pictures from the UKMK3's meet back in August. Along with my Mystic Blue 8v and my Brother inlaw's Indian Red VR6.

    Couple of pictures to update this abit: Also a couple of pictures from a UKMK3's meet up in Crieff along with the Wife's black auto VR Highline and the Bro-inlaws VR as well: There will be a fair bit more work going into this over the winter. VR6 engine there to be rebuilt and put in with a smooth bay. Got plans for the wheels and a few other bodywork related ideas as well.
