      Here's a question. If I'm doing 90-100km/h in a Mk II on the M7 on a day that's about 30 degrees, and the oil temp is showing anywhere between 120-125 degrees, should I be concerned? That seems a bit hot to me?

      Good oil should be OK. Don't be concerened. (Be confused)

      Ours is an Aus delivered car, as you know. If you think they will fit in the back, tell me how much I need to pay you for them [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Have a look either side of the rear parcel shelf. There should be four plastic studs each side (with nuts hopefully). The speakers are designed to fit here. These speakers were bought ex TKM (the Golf 2 GTI importers) and the box says GTI & Passat variant. $30 there yours. When are you in Sydney?

      I thought the 3 phase make more power, but draw less current?

      Yes each phase uses about 33%.
      If it's 2kw, it's 2kw. That's how you pay for power. It doesn't matter if it's 1 or 3 phase.

      I don't know much about it really.

      I dont know what the power usage is but i know air tools arent as efficient as electric/cordless tool by a fair margin for whatever thats's worth but given its infrequent use at home you'd only turn it on as you need to for workin on the car and stuff im sure you'd barely notice the power use.

      we have both at work and the 3 phase is damaged (flywheel) and is going to cost heaps to fix, wondering if the electricty bill is so high from the single phase cheapo

      theres oil temp gauge?
      I thought it was just water temp.
      that is high if in that range. I track my car and it only gets to 110.

      Yeah, but l337 Mk1s have oil coolers, big fat Mk2's don't ... AFAIK anyway.
      But then your engine isn't exactly OEM, so dunno if you have the oil cooler anyway.
      I still haven't done a Brindy run in the Mk1, but even when I've been fanging it as hard as I dare the oil temp has been struggling to make 90° (all based on the assumption my gauge is working accurately, haha).

      Golf 2s have a watercooled heat exchanger oil cooler. The same as T3 transporters. Not as good at cooling as the Beetle cooler of the Golf 1.

      It's good oil to my knowledge, so I'll just take it easy I guess.

      Wicked. I'm told by my brother that what you describe is all in place, so I'll take them I'm in Sydney a lot in December, so will email you as it gets closer and organise to drive to where you are to collect them. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      The rear OE speakers in late Golf 1 and Golf 2 were 5x3".
      I have a set of genuines here if anyone needs them.

      I am not sure they will fit. I took out the old ones from my MkII and replaced them with 4x6, which was the exact same size. Are you sure 3x5 wasnt just MkI. Mine is an early MkII. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Well given it says they are for a MkII on the box, and they were sold by the importer that imported my car, it doesn't matter much in this case

      There's an oil temp display in the multi function computer. Luxury.

      I'm done thinking and the decision is 16 valves is better than 8. Hoping to share more soon. Very excited.

      And here are those glorious 16 valves!

      So 'Green 16' arrived yesterday from Brisbane.
      Pretty happy with it as it was bought sight unseen, quite a bit of work to do, but nothing major in any manner.
      In a few weeks after some works - new cat back exhaust system and rego - it is time for a pre summer meet. I am not sure if I would be keen enough for taking a car that I have only had a short time on the track, but would consider most other things.
