Hey everybody, been lurking around vwvortex for a while now more or less just trying to absorb as much knowledge as I can. Well, the day finally came... yesterday I purchased my first VW. A black 1998 Golf Mk3 GTI! I've only had it for 36 hours and already I can say that I absolutely love it.
And without further adieu, PICS!
Pretty clean overall, a few small issues here and there but all-in-all I'm more than happy with the outcome. Also, if anyone knows where I could find a replacement rocker panel for the passenger door, lemme know because mine is rusted.
Straight, clean, almost completely stock (except sound system) and drives like a champ.
105k miles on the clock, super clean interior.
I do have a question though, does anyone know what that little toggle switch above the purple diagnostic port is? I've asked a few guys and nobody knows what it is...
Ahh... the pièce de résistance. This VR6 is the lifeblood of my new baby and I cannot WAIT to pump out some serious power with it.
The car isn't perfect, nor is it a clunker. These next few months may be a little rough what with college and being low on spending money but in the end I know this car will go the distance.
So, I wanted to put it to you guys and see what you thought: What are some good low-budget, college-kid mods you can do to these cars? I'm totally open to anything and I wanna get the brain juices flowing so I need some suggestions.
Changed the title seeing as how my GTI is no longer *new* to me, plus I finally decided on a name for it. I quite enjoy the comparison between a VR6 and the sound Chewbacca makes so... Wookie it is!
