a mate of mines jus let a mk3 2.0 GTI go for scrap money... no one wanted it... mk2 golf GTI's are about the best one they made IMO.

ye lol mines a gti, or it will be once the new 1.6 8v's in it.....

Just because it has a GTi engine in it, doesn't make it a GTi.... :doh::tape::laugh:

Have to agree though, I would have kept the Astra :sad:


It is full GTi spec, with the engine on the floor ready to go in. So yes it is, just doesnt say it on the logbook yet. But it will engine wise anyway. Love the mk3 golfs, 1.9 TDi ftw!

What so people who buy mr2s and put Ferrari body kits on are actually driving Ferrari's? Not really.

Same applies to people on here who make GSi reps, still a merit/ls or whatever underneath.

ye they dont have the engine, i do :laugh:

If its upgraded that much to the point its a much higher spec, The only thing saying any different is the logbook, much the same story with Sierra Cosworth owners, Merc 190 owners, Peugeot 205 etc. Most of the base cars now have the running gear and trim, Its exactly the same bar the logbook. And i think this thread has gone a bit off topic lol.

I've also found the same, even ebay doesn't have any 1.6 Gti golfs, loads of 1.8 and 2.0 ones though :nod:
