Yay, the shocks and springs have arrived from TM Tuning, and are on the car, so at last I can post some up to date pictures in here. Very happy with the lowering amount, and the car now goes round corners like a gocart.

Phil, that's a beautiful looking golf. Hi perve factor, that one, it's my favourite colour. The wife wants it! It's great that there's a few out there with the TM Tuning suspension to give tight wads like me the confidence to get some too one day. Now how about a snap of that other car of yours mentioned at the bottom of your posts ?

Thanks Hartster. I love my golf so much I have decided to sell the 911, as I want the garage space for the GTI. I want to replace the 911 with something like a S2 Coupe or similar that will serve as more of an every day car. Here a pic of the Porsche, it is also for sale on TM.

That's a highly desirable car, that Porsche. Oh well, I weighed up the options and ended up with a Citigolf instead ;)

I don't think I've ever heard someone say they've given up their Porsche for a Golf. It's like a Ferrari for a Fiat. Whatever, it's a hell of a reason.

Hi-i am new to the register(what a great site-impressed!).
I have just purchased a early 85 Mk2 GTI Golf (3 door ,NZ New-1st reg March 85).
Rescued the GTI before it went to a life of being in in a wreckers and ultimately sent to the crushers(owner just wanted to get rid of it).
Exterior colour is white(original paint in good condition) and has the original grey with red striped upholstery. Has the factory windback sunroof,Pirelli Wheels,1.8 8 valve engine,5 speed manual plus headlight washers etc...
All original-not modified.
Chassis #WVWZZZ19ZFW358909
Engine #EV055496

Slowly learning about these-does anyone know about my particular model?

Will post some pics soon..

Mike

Looking very tidy on the road. Spotted coming down Khyber Pass this morning. I was driving my 'new' wheels, more about them somewhere else.

Yes, the extractors are in the car, and the rest of the exhaust has had an overhaul. A 2 inch pipe (same diameter as the Milltek extractors) with two resonators leading to a muffler with new 3" twin tip pipes. I had it without the muffler and a 3rd resonator for a few weeks, but I sounded like a boy racer, and replaced it with the muffler. It now has a better understated sound which is what I am after.

And yes there is a difference, not sure exactally how much, but it does seem quicker.
