  1. Good Morning I am in need of a bit of advice regarding doing a engine swop from a 2.8 12V AA to a 2.8 24V BDE in my MK3 GOLF VR6. Does this 24V fit straight into my MK3 body of does engine mounts need to be made up? Does the CV Joints and shafts fit on the 24V? I will be running and aftermarket fuel management system should I decide to follow through with the swop. So I would appreciate it if someone could shed some light on the swop and the ins and outs of the 24 motor? Kind Regards Gershon Adonis Cape Town, South Africa.

  5. Hey guys, Got some spare time on my hands so thought i'd upload some pics of my daily VR Only had it for 2 years and already cost me a small fortune Current mods are a full milltek exhaust system and Ram air induction, seeing just under 200hp Engine is strong and had the chains re-done recently.

  8. Hi there and welcome the build thread for my cabrio vr6 so far the journey has taken over a year and only now is she becoming a vr6. The car was given to me by a very good friend. All i know about the car is that it is a 1.8 1997 golf cabriolet. The car has 179k on (providing the clocks haven't been switched). The cars tax runs out at the end of the month.

The current faults are that the exhaust is Blowing (Ahem more like in two parts) So that will be repaired. The

  10. 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.
  11. 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!

  15. 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 th
  16. Hi People, I'm in the process of buying a Mk3 Golf VR6 Highline that's been off the road in a dry garage for a couple of years. Before I send it for an MOT to get a list of what's wrong I'm doing filters and fluids in the current owner's garage (a mate). I've drained the sump and the oil filter housing by removing the plug, but when it comes to removing the housing itself, I can't budge it! I've tried using and adjustable spanner and channel pliers on the 36mm 'bolt' and also a nylon filter strap-based removal thing on the larger area at the top of the housing. The housing doesn't seem to
