    Was out a drive Sunday night and as reaching national speed limit, what i thought was lower cover i removed to change belt blowing away, turned out to be this.. If anyone has this part, bottom front lip of front offside arch liner please let know. Also need offside front spoiler half [emoji106]

  4. 1997 golf vr6 project rebuild.

    Long time since last post, but any updated pics of it? [emoji106]
  5. 97 Mystic Blue 5dr

    When the car arrived it had no grommet fitted below the aerial. Wee bit of silicone sealant evident. I purchased a "2 for less than 3 quid inc delivery" aerial grommet/seals supposedly suitable for mk3 golf. When fitted it became quite obvious the claims were nonsense. This introduced a drip into the car which a towel below the headliner was recruited to the stop the flood. VW couldn't find a part number when i called, but i found one online and ordered the kit from them; £11 Fitted today Part number for base seal, o-ring and nut is 3B0051751
  6. Just bought a MK4 VR6

    Good choice on the exhaust [emoji106] K&N are one of the originals, RamAir and Pipercross are good also. Anyone else any first-hand experience with induction kits on their VR?
  7. My Corrado vr6 today.

    That is a lovely looking thing. Do you have a thread in members rides?
  8. Just bought a MK4 VR6

    Carry out a good service first, oil, filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, haldex oil and filter and have it scanned for fault codes. Then once that is completed upgrade the exhaust, fit an induction kit of some kind with a heat shield then its on to upgrading brakes and suspension

  10. Hi, My vr6 arrived last week, all the way from Norwich. Offside half of chin splitter got smashed going onto the truck, but otherwise arrived unscathed. 108k, fair amount of bills and original service book. Standard apart from coilovers. Radio was removed as part of the deal, stuck one in I had lying about for the last 10 years and fitted a new drivebelt that came with the car.

  12. [SOLD] mk3 Golf Vr6

    As above, time of year is against you just now. Is it advertised anywhere else? to get decent bread I would avoid ebay, facebook, gumtree etc... and try listing on autotrader, car and classic or pistonheads Good luck!
  13. Steering wheel

    if it is a standard oem wheel you have I would reckon ebay would have some for a fair price. or try local gumtree for a mk3 being broken or head down the local scrappy. To get it recovered search for a local car interior trimmer; http://doncastertrimmers.co.uk/ https://www.doncasterleathercare.co.uk/car-leather-repair-cleaning-doncaster/ good luck!
  14. Project Ripped Off
