New Car *Non Fiat Warning*

Well got myself another dub on Saturday. Only bought it for the wheels really but now ive driven it i've fallen for it, im gonna try get my insurance switched over for the last 3 months, got 1 weeks temp insurance so i can have it on the road while jetta gets sold.

Spec:
Mk2 Royal Blue Driver 1600cc
New Mk3 Cylinder head & Cam fitted & Mk3 VR6 Struts with 80mm Lowering Springs.
New Starter, Alternator, Gaskets, Clutch, Radiator & Rear Shoes & Wheel Cylinders fitted last year.
Uprated Front brakes (spec unknown)
New GTi 16v Exhaust
GTi 16v Interior, Front Splitter & Rear Lights
Crystal Headlights, Smoked indicators & Side Repeaters
Wolfsburg Leather Gaitor, Wolfsburg Mats and badge set, may fit Wolfsburg steering wheel i have in the cabby aswell.
Sparco Front and Rear Strutbraces
Best bit: 15x7" Ronal Turbo Alloys with new 195/50/15s
DVD Player with 7" Screen fitted in centre console.
Alpine Front Components & Tweeters in front & Pioneer coaxials in rear panels.
Sigma alarm fitted last month (operates central locking etc etc)
Came with eyebrow spoiler, original splitter and German plates

Pics :
Before I Got It:


Now:
Gap between bumper and kerb? I dont see one?

Crystal & Smoked

Shiny exhaust & Wheels

Ronal Turbos & Chrome inserts in bumper (Jetta in background)

Ronal Turbo baby! no gap under arch

Ever growing collection :

New Wheels This Weekend (BBS RA 15" with BN tyres and BMW Mini 15")

My Karmann Cabby, 'rents insuring £200! switching 14" BBSs to new 15" versions

Quick one of the mint jetta (as MOT tester put it)


The sound is awesome in the Driver, exhaust and engine noise, almost cream every time, maybe K&N filter helps . Thinking of maybe doing Jetta front conversion (as i have the jetta sitting there) with maybe the light brow, as the crystal lights are going on the cabby anyway, and maybe try find the arch kit ive got on the jetta and spray it body coloured and fit that.

What you think? Thoughts, suggestions?

Craig

if you do that i'll hunt you down. jetta front conversion is morally wrong, how could you live with yourself?!

Re: New Car *Non Fiat Warning*

with jug on this one mate, no jetta front on it, would ruin it IMO. Other than that, you know my thoughts..

I want your drive only thing its missing is a turbo in that cinq you know what i'm talking about right?

Thanks guys on the cinq comments, i do love it, is very fun to drive, if my mum and dad get a good quote on the cabby with me as a named driver then i'll use that (they have their own cars aswell) and keep the cinq insured on very limited mileage and maybe look into 1242 etc. But this golf is so quick its unbelievable (compared to what i thought it would be), with the new bits and mk3 head&cam, 70mph is pretty easy cruising in 4th, took it for a spin yesterday on the motorway and its awesome. Obviously its harder in town, like 3pt turns are not really an option, and thats where the cinq is good, a town car, quick off the mark and easy to park. I dont think ill be able to get a cinq again like mine in the same condition, and with all the new bits ive got on it, so i'm kinda undecided on what to do atm, which one to sell..

Re: New Car *Non Fiat Warning*

Putting the Ronal Turbos and DVD Player in/on the Cabrio, New golf will be sold with the BBS RA 14" wheels on it, and MOT. Drove the Cinq yesterday and i cant sell it! So Golf Mk2 and Jetta Mk2 both getting sold asap. It is nice to drive on motorways etc but it isnt as fun as the cinq for what i do every day.. town driving. Cheers for the good feedback tho guys.

Re: New Car *Non Fiat Warning*

Aw shame your not keeping it!

MK2 golfs rock, I should know . If you do end up keeping it then ide keep it small bumper without the arches. looks smoooooth. Could bodycolour the bumpers though. That would look niiicceee.

Would you consider selling the ronals? ive got a brand new set of multispokers i could trade with
