6n2 1.8T K04 GTI

8 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi some of you might remember this car, it was originally Jamie1.8tpologti's. I bought it beginning of May last year as I've always wanted a 1.8t ever since I saw this very car when Jamie had it all those years ago. The spec is BAM 1.8t engine (done by TSR), mk3 golf tdi gearbox, custom 3" turbo back exhaust system, custom drive shafts, R-tec map running 270bhp, Hi-Spec 4 pot front brakes, Bilstein coilovers, Rota Grid alloys, Porsche rep front seats and false floor rear and smoothed bumpers. This is how it looked when I bought it.

The main reason I bought it :D

The wheels weren't my thing at all so decided to get rid and replace them with a set of OZ superturismo's, got these off ebay for £200.

Tried them with the slicks just out of impatient-ness. Sold the slicks on and replaced them with a set of Nankang NS-2R's as the yokohama s-drives on the Rota's were just not giving enough grip.

We had a club stand at CumbriaVag so wanted to tidy up the engine. Top is before and bottom is after.

At CumbriaVag 2016

Painted the wheels black soon after CumbriaVag and that was that for 2016. Took it off the road over the winter, put it in my garage to start a on few things that had been bugging me. Like the intercooler pipe sticking out the driver's side grill, rusty wings, and a general tidy up.
 
So started on the intercooler pipe, stripped the front end down including the slam panel. Removed the a/c radiator and pipes etc to free up some room to move the intercooler back 20mm. Cut the cooler pipe down and re-welded which gave me the room needed to have the pipe fully behind the grill. Also removed the wings and replaced them.

Got a mate who runs a sign writing company and he sent me this through. I'm feeling the motorsport look and tbf the car is quick enough to pull it off. Taking inspiration form the Mercedes F1 team livery. It's not going to look exactly like this (don't really fancy a 'Brazzers' sun strip :lol:

Still got front splitter to make, sides to make and figure out rear spoiler options and give it a good clean. Back on the road 1st May.

I remember Jamie having this...

I was hoping you'd keep this as a sleeper. Good to see you're looking after it!

I know what you mean but on the other hand if people think it's all mouth and no trousers when trying to have a play then it'll be a double bluff ;)

      Hi, have any of lovely people out there got any body panels in Evergreen (Paint code LA6C) that are available for sale. I'm especially looking for a driver's side rear door in good condition and preferably with the colour coded bump strip, though not essential. I'm based in the Midlands but would be prepared to travel to collect. Thanks for looking 😁👍

      Hi lads, I'm on the lookout for an afk engine to replace my akk engine. If I can find one, would this be a straight forward swap? I would intend to remove current engine and box and replace with afk engine and box. I'm also assuming that the ecu and clocks need to be swapped.
       
      Thanks for any help!

      2001 Polo 1.4 TDI – AMF engine – £900 ovno
      123,000 miles (approx. and changing as I use it)
      Just passed its MOT on the 30/06/17
      Located in Monmouth, SE Wales
       
      Up for sale, my daily driver that I’ve used to commute to work for the last 2 and a half years. I’ve covered over 50,000 miles in that time, all dual carriageway driving. Has had various repairs as it’s needed them, but has never broken down on me or failed to start. All repairs have been done using quality parts, Febi, Sachs, etc. no cheap bits as I have needed it to be reliable for work.
       
      Genuinely sad to see the car go but we’ve outgrown it as a family now that our second child has come along, so need to replace it with something bigger. It’s really nice to drive, there are no clonks, rattles or weird noises; it has a really strong engine and uses no oil or water. At or near the asking price there are various bits I’m happy to pass on with the car: a pair of genuine VW roof bars, Haynes manual, spare alloy wheel (needs a refurb) and some new spare parts (front pads, bushes, etc.). Message me on here if you’re interested.
       
      Good bits:
      · £30 tax per year, insurance group 13, so cheap to run and insure.
      · Excellent engine, pulls really well and fantastic on fuel, it averages 65 MPG consistently with more on a run. Surprisingly nippy for what it is.
      · SE spec, so has: remote central locking with alarm (one key), front fogs, electric tilt and slide sunroof, rear discs, front electric windows, electric mirrors.
      · GTI bits: Xenon lights, upper grille, front splitter and full leather interior with heated seats, stubby aerial.
      · All the electrics work, no warning lights on the dash.
      · I’ve serviced it with oil and filter religiously every 10,000 miles. Last done at 121,800 miles along with fuel filter. Air filter and pollen filter done 15,000 miles ago.
      · Recent rear pads, rear shocks, front and centre exhaust sections.
      · Just had around £400 of work done to get it through the MOT, both lower wishbones, ball joints, inner and outer anti-roll bar bushes, pair of front tyres, ABS sensor.
      · Timing belt done on the 17/07/17 by my local garage along with water pump, tensioner, etc.
       
      Bad bits:
      · Category D write off (lowest level) due to damaged drivers side doors – these were repaired and the car returned to the road before I bought it. The repair to the driver’s door isn’t the best and it is visible.
      · Bodywork generally – the photos make it look better than it is. There’s no rust anywhere, but there are various dents and scratches, the worst dent should be visible in the photos on the bonnet. Alloys are in mixed condition with some kerbing. I'm probably making this sound worse than it is, but I'm just trying to be honest; the bodywork isn't terrible, it's just what you'd expect from a 16 year old car.
      · Rear tyres have about 2-3mm of tread on them – advisory on the MOT.
