2002 GTV 3.0 V6

Hello Again

Hi there,

Although I did originally register & do a brief intro 5 years ago, when I had just bought a 98 phase 1 gtv 2.0 ts lusso. Shortly after I lost my licence for 3 years due to some reckless irresponsibility I used to suffer from. However, I kept the car because I was smitten. For the past year or so, the awesome guys at Alfashop Norwich, have carried out many upgrades/improvements to make her safe & great to drive. ( fyi-the only car I have ever owned that sailed through an mot )!
Then I recently discovered that insurance was now possible for the one I always wanted, & bought a 2002 Ph2 gtv 3.0 V6 24 Valve. Sort of like the same car, but somehow the style, quality, feel & drive-ability is so much more, more than I expected & even more beautiful.
After many weeks of waiting I finally managed to transfer my cherished plate & now I'm able to sell my 98. Also I need to find a fuse box for my 2002? ( Same old rear demister issue but with added spoiler brake light ) That's not a real tech question, right?

Many thanks! Absolutely lovin' my V6, just took a look at my tyre pressures & from 34 - 32 to the correct 39, 36. Nice 45 min run around local B roads, incredible handling!

I need to make a few more posts before I'm able to try to sell my old one here right?
