  1. I have been forced into the decision to sell my 1997 Highline. It's a good little car which I've owned for 6 years. It needs the MOT renewing as it's been in the lockup for a couple of months. Once that's done I'll be listing it up here.
  2. Up for sale soon. Low mile VR6 Highline.

    Black 3 door Highline.
  3. Up for sale soon. Low mile VR6 Highline.

    Dropped the VR down to the MOT place and will be collected tomorrow. I have little doubt it'll pass. I noticed I haven't even done 2000 miles in the last year. I'll have it valetted and then I'll list it.
  4. Turbo build

    Have a chat with Stealth Racing in Southam.
  5. I can't remember that it made any difference. I do remember that when mine was playing up the catalytic converter got extremely hot - and I mean glowing red! This would happen after 3 miles driving! is your cat overheating?
  6. I had a similar issue with one of my old VRs and it turned out to be the lambda sender. I disconnected the sender and she ran ok. Just a thought, I'm no mechanic
  7. I thought it was possible to bypass the immobiliser. Someone on here offered to bypass mine. There are instructions how to do it online. The immo is behind the drivers side air vent and it involves swapping 2 wires over and disconnecting another 2. Seems fairly easy. Google it.
  8. engine problems

    Yes mate. I got stranded a couple of times when the car refused to start. I'd leave it half hour and it would fire up. My mate fixed it for me so I don't know where they're located. I'm sure youtube or google have the answer.

    You could try replacing the throttle sensor and the crank position sensor. I don't think they're expensive.

    Thanks for showing me your knob!! II'l tell you in much better condition than mine! Ok, so 45 it is then. I'll PM you and we can get off the boards.
  13. *Reduced* Breaking Black vr6 highline

    Fantastic. Have a think about how much you want for all three items inc postage.
  14. *Reduced* Breaking Black vr6 highline

    Are you willing to remove the items from the car and post them? I'l take all three including the gearknob which, hopefully, I can refurb.
  15. VR6 OEM+

    Nice clean car, mate. I loved my old Mystic Blue VR. I had him for 8 yrs and did 150,000 miles. In all that time it only let me down once with a shot coilpack. I sold it to some little scrote weed dealer who wrote it off the day after he bought it!! I've had my current VR Highline for 6 years but thinking of selling him on soon. @javichu50 I have a spare VR6 badge you could put on your Mk3
  16. *Reduced* Breaking Black vr6 highline

    I need a few minor bits like the OBD port cover. An original wooden gear knob and passenger side window seal. Any of these things available?
  17. The guy who revamped my car had to get new seals for the rear and it was cheaper to buy new windows with seals included! I'll admit I haven't looked for front ones. Surely any Mk3 Golf bits should fit. It has been suggested to me to just to cover the window motor in clingfilm and spray with WD40.
  18. I gaffer tape the window seal when I wash the car and make sure the pressure washer avoids that area. I recently had my VR 'overhauled' and the bodywork guy managed to get new rear window seals. I'm sure you'll get them easy as they're the same for most mK3s. I just haven't got round to doing mine.
  19. I have the same issue. After I have the car washed or it rains heavy the passenger window plays up. I find when I stop somewhere and shut the drivers door, the passenger window goes down. If I open the drivers door again and slam it the passenger one goes up again. All this silliness stops when it all dries out. I've had a new window motor (200 quid!!) and it made no difference. I'm thinking I need new window seals. I got the doors off ebay for a quid and the rubber is a bit perished. My other solution is simply to disconnect the motor and do without a passenger window opening.
  20. VW GOLF VR6 Highline 1998

    Looks like a nice example. I already own an identical one. Good luck with the sale.

  22. VR6 Highline badges

    There is a difference. See you other post for photos!
  23. VR6 Highline badges

    Regular VR6 badge. Highline Badge.
  24. VR6 Highline badges

    Yes. The highline badge is a black rectangle with VR6 in the middle. A non-highline badge is like a silver cut out VR6. I'll post some pics for you.
