    VW Golf GT TDI





    Got myself one of these last Saturday
    For 115bhp it's nippy. It'll never be a 330, but for what it is, it's a good little car.
    It now means no kids in the 330, no more crumbs on the back seats

    When I got it Saturday, within 1 hour of having it, the turbo blew. Thankfully I bought it off the bro-in-law who's also a mechanic, so he got a turbo and we fitted it this Saturday just gone. The rear end of the car was plastered in oil, which I managed to get cleaned off yesterday. It shines up well I think. The new turbo should see me through plenty of miles

    Turbo aside, the first job was to remove the cheat box:


    Got a few other niggles to sort out, but at £800, I can't complain.

    Admit it Chris , you bought it , hated it then tried to kill it didn't you?

    Never had a turbo go on me bud, did you think the police were following you or just get the plume of smoke following you ?

    This is one car that I've bought, quite liked and not tried to kill on purpose, yet no one believes me

    Also, no one believes me when I say that this thing has gone through more oil in a day than the RX8 did in 2 months

    My Mrs had one (130bhp) for 4 years, sold it last August, they run well on biodiesel that's why she has a 100bhp Beetle now with the same engine.

    I thought it was only the newer Golfs that had cheat boxes.

    Must be some sort of "keep the engine thinking its cold so it puts more fuel in" box?
