  1. Hey Folks, Please help me diagnose what the noise in my R32 MK4 is! The high pitch whine/ noise in the video (below) occurs when I take my foot off the accelerator (usually happens when I'm in 3rd or higher) and coast. Doesn't always happen and seems to occur once I've been driving around for 5-10mins+. This may not be accurate but it seems to occur between 20 and 30,000 RPM and sounds like it's originating from the passenger/nearside of the car though I'm not 100%. I've taken it to VW and they reckon it's a vacuum leak from the engine, however, the guys I bought it from have pressure tested and not found any leak. They think it might be related to the EBC Redstuff brake pads. Anyone had a similar issue?
  2. Hi I'm selling my golf VR6. I've had this car for three years and selling as we're downsizing to one car. I paid £2k for this three years ago and replaced the wheels (Wolfrace) and added new tyres (yokohamas) and had some of the body work replaced. Mileage is below 100k. Has all the extras (leather recearo seats, Air conditioning, electric sun roof) - note Leather looks worn from pictures, it is not, leather is all sound, but pevious owner re-coloured them them from yellow to blueish colour and it's just where the colouring has worn. I've had two new front side panels fitted (each side) and a new rear passanger door and also had the crank shaft sensor replaced. Front spoiler / splitter was replaced with genuine OEM, MOT'd until April 2020. Lot's of service history. There are spots of rust, with rust on the side skirts. The Alloys could also do with some refurb. The central locking doesn't work. Runs really nicely. Photo's attached - happy to provide more. I've no idea what the car is worth, will be sad to see it go, but I'd say this is a pretty good one and would sell for £2.5k. Send me a message if you would like to discuss. David
  3. Hows it going. I own a 01 vr6 12 valve I noticed somethings going on lately. At higher rpms when I really get on it I noticed a burning smell kinda. It kinda smells like exhaust kinda a hot smell I guess you could say. Another thing I noticed is that my oil smells like exhaust is this normal? Not sure if it’s just me but I feel like there is some power loss and I noticed when I’m at idle with my hood open and I give it a little rev to about to grand I noticed a ticking/knocking/binding noise could this be my intake shiftrod I know some people have problems with that. Motor has 113,xxx miles on it the car does have no muffler. Timing chain and guides were just recently done. Any help would be great thank you!

All the conversion work was done by Darren Francis at vwenterprise.co.uk http://www.vwenterprise.co.uk/portfolio/hans-mk2-r32/ http://www.vwenterprise.co.uk/portfolio/hans-dash/ Since I have owned it I have had it serviced and had to replace: 1 rear caliper.

  9. Hi all, Just got my car back from body shop, put it through an mot yesterday and it failed on rear (both sides) brake pipes. Now, is there somewhere in leeds that can do full length of car (braided hoses) then build it up with ends and crimps or is there somewhere pre-made in leeds that sells them (if full length can be done?) Or shall i go to ebay n snap up some Goodridge uprated ones for the back end? Need to be quick so i can get it in for re test ? Thank you ?
  10. I thought I would put my photos/videos up from my AUE V6 Turbo build because there is not enough info on the AUE engine out there. Power target is 500bhp, if I can get more safely and practically it will be going up. I've seen a stock motor get 474whp/576bhp on YouTube, be interesting to see if it is achievable. My engine is not forged. If anyone is interested in the build let me know and I will do a spec. Also ask any questions you want, I am happy to answer. The car is going to Stealth Racing UK next week for stock management (ME7.1) mapping, I started this build around 4 weeks ago. R32 Side skirts are being left off as Stealth Racings Dyno is risen from floor level. The kit does need a respray at some point and the Aristo wheels will be going black. The current wheels have Rainsport 3 tyres on which are nearly new so ill be using those over the winter and then put the Aristo's on next year. 335i is my daily at the moment 20170801_200554.mp4 VID-20170801-WA0142.mp4

  19. Hello to all, Finally got myself another VR6 and it feels like i am a kid all over again i am so exited to start working on my project but first i would like to say hello and also i would like to apologise for all the questions i about to start asking, so the car i have is a MK3 VR6 it has had some work done it has been stripped out and i am only every going to use this as a track car. Currently has a Eaton M112 supercharger fitted with a inter cooler it connected to the belt and it is turning but its not connected into the intake, the guy i bought it off never finished it so i saw an opportunity and stepped in the engine is totally standard so i have lots of work to do, which leads me to my first question! It runs lean with the supercharger connected so i plan to install red top injectors and to help with the extra air but i am wondering what to do with the MAF ie, keep it, move it, or upgrade it to a Audi S3 MAF. I am very open to suggestions here! Glad to be part of the club again! Rgds Ky

  21. Golf Mk3 bodywork

    Hello, So when/if I do buy the VR6 Golf Mk3, I want to get a new 'bodykit', front and rear bumpers along with side skirts. Now, I have found the bumpers but the skirts are no were to be seen. So this is the front bumper. This is the rear bumper. The skirts I can not find. One thing I noticed was that the website has named them as JE Design, where as the picture and other websites claim they are Rieger Racing. While I am here, on a stock Golf 3, what are the lights in the front bumper? I'm asking because the front bumper I provided above doesn't have them.
  22. Hello, so I've been looking to buy a Golf Mk3 VR6 and want to get insurance on it for a small amount of miles a year. I'm looking to drive it at a maximum once a week. The lowest quote I have so far is £4.6k which is more than the car it's self. I'm 17, so hence the high quotes. I've even had companies say no. Please help!
  23. http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&id=321553506889&alt=web Can you let me know I really will appreciate it.
  24. Anyone selling any or know where I can get them? Thanks in advance
  25. Result: http://i.imgur.com/oPV6yXw.jpg Lowered the car to a two finger width space between the arches and tyres. This was 315mm between the centre of the alloy and the top of the arch. I can JUST fit a jack underneath if I get a flat *touch wood*. Bought refurbished 16" BBS RXII RS771 and coil overs from www.lowerks.com. Tyres are Falken ZE914 195/45 (I read good things on various sites). Steering wheel is now pulling to the right however. Mechanic said run it for a few days then come back since they will adjust from driving. After he's done the final tweeks, I'll probable need to get the wheels aligned. Anyone got any more info/experience with this?
