    What do you think an unmolested original (well mostly) Mk1 GTi is worth ? Would anyone buy one ?

    i have seen some alfa's with Golf GTi wheels on line, i know the stud pattern PCD is very close to being correct and that this could be got round with "wobbly bolts" but does anyone know the bore size difference between golf wheels and the Alfa wheels?

    On my way home from Sedgefield this afternoon as I came down Sir Lowry's Pass there was a blacked-out silver mk5 GTI with CW registration. I noticed his huge rear dual pipes. He had his tuning stickers on the rear doors (wulftegnik or something) and it looked nice. The golf followed me as I went...

    On Saturday...very early morning after dropping a mate off from the Linkin Park concert I had a chance to give a Golf 5 GTI a proper go on the highway. From a rolling start (+/- 80kph) off of the on-ramp there was nothing in it up until about an indicated 220kph. Then he slowly pulled a car...

    Hi guys, See the Car magazine is saying the Golf 7 GTI will make 200kw and then went on to say the only car that will be able to challenge the new Golf 7 GTI is the Alfa Romeo Giulietta fitted with a 224kw 1.8l engine. They seem sure the 1.8l engine will make it to the Giulietta :cheese: You...

    I know they are 2 very different cars, but they are the 2 cars I am considering. I know im posting this in an Alfa forum, but want your opinions! Im coming from a 147. The Alfa is without doubt much better looking, more comfy and has a nicer interior. Although its not fast and does feel heavy...

    I'm becoming quite bored with my GTV, and am considering selling it and getting a Lupo GTI. I know the GTV is a classier looking car but the Lupo is light, quite fast and economical. Has anyone ever owned one, or thought about buying one?

    Followed a very nice blue 1.9 this morning on the way to work. Always liked them, I had a girlfriend years ago who had one. Then saw this on PH PistonHeads Headlines - SOTW: Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6 Great handling wee things, better than most modern hot hatches :cool:

    Guili, This story is just for you. Last night on my way home I drive past a red Golf 5 with Revo and a few other tuning stickers on it! I was doing about 75km/h and he probably did 60km/h seeing that we were in a residential zone... As soon as I passed the Golf he put his foot down, catch up...

    So Sarel invited me to join him at the GTI club dyno day. First time for me, never attended one before. My results: 194kW @ 6269rpm, 311Nm @ 5307rpm.:D Someone from the GTI club asked me to leave my GTV to him in the event that I have an untimely death, and many people were more than a little...
