  1. Hi guys, Bought this for my 1997 Mk3 Golf VR6 but never got round to installing it and have now sold the car . Cost £100 new. Comes in original box, which is slightly squashed due to moving house, the part is brand new and immaculate. I've seen others selling used / worn parts on Ebay for £40 + postage! . Selling for £45 with postage included in price to UK address! Or you can collect if you are close to Bristol UK.

  3. Are you a lurker?

    The body is in an OK shape and the engine is pretty solid, she's just a rusty bugger! Will probably end up keeping it and buying another vr for a engine swap! [emoji23]
  4. Are you a lurker?

    Hi, I'm Stuart and I'm a mild lurker... I guess you could say I am a Golf enthusiast.. I now currently own 3 I originally started 5 years ago with a 1986 mk2 small bumper GTI, which I got as a 'project car' off my mate. Due to living in Bristol most of the year (I'm originally from Northern Ireland) it has taken its sweet time and is now a shell being worked on. 6 months after buying the mk2 I got a 25th Anniversary which has been my daily for nearly 5 years. With living in Bristol for the last few years, with only on-street parking, people have stolen parts off the Anni and marked it through parking so I had enough and took it back home last month to garage it. While I was home I bought my friends 1997 mk3 VR6 Golf to use as a run around until I can afford to do the other 2 and then steal the VR6 engine for the mk2! I'm sure I will be on here for many years to come..
  5. Great, this will save me a fortune. Thanks again!
  6. Thanks for the help Pete, closest I could find on ECP is this? http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/p/car-accessories/engine-oils-and-car-fluids/antifreeze-and-screenwash/red-antifreeze/?523770521&0&cc5_866 order x2 as its already diluted i'm assuming? Cheers, Stuart
  7. Hi guys, After extensively searching what coolant I need for my recently bought VR6 as the current coolant looks pretty grim.. I have came across this coolant: https://www.amazon.co.uk/febi-bilstein-38201-Antifreeze-Coolant/dp/B00FZGA8V0/ref=au_as_r?ie=UTF8&n=248877031&newVehicle=1&s=automotive&submodelId=1877 I am told G13 will do the job and I need around 10 litres of overall liquid to completely refill the system after emptying it. Being a bit slow today and cant work out from the dilution pictures on the front of the Febi Bilstein bottle that it is ok to mix the 5 litres of coolant with 5 litres of de-ionised water? Any help or suggestions of other decent afforable coolants would be much apprecaited. Cheers.
