    Thread: Should i buy this Golf to eventually mod?

    1. 10-05-2012 06:34 PM #1
      So my past car was a handed down to me by my sister and i want to buy either a Golf or a Jetta.
      i came across a 2003 golf 2.0 with 70k for 5,000$ witch is all i can afford rite now. it has a K&N air filter and Magnaflow exhaust and bbs looking rims i dont know the brandThe car is also very clean and is being sold by a owner of a body shop my cousin knows.

      I wanted to know is it worth buying this to eventually do engine work to? and how more difficult this would be rather than buying a Gti or a 1.8t

      Pictures don't work

      I have a 2.0, and it's pretty reliable. The only downside is that it is rather slow. If you want fast and reliable, get a VR6. 1.8T's are fast and sound good with an nice aftermarket BOV/DV, but they are rather problematic
