  1. hi all, hoping for some help. I have a 1.8L 16v 1989 Corrado that I've dropped a 2.0L 16v from my Mk2 Golf into (2.0L Audi Block). The last guy that took the engine out didn't label or photograph anything, and I can't figure out which wires go to which terminals. Anyone out there with 1.8L or 2.0L that could possibly sent me some photos from their engine bay?! Or I'll come and take them myself. I'm a bit of a noob, but I believe a pre-91 Mark 2 Golf has the same wiring loom, so even a golf would work?! I'd love you forever for any help!
  2. Most Beautiful Car Ever?

    Sorry if I look like an idiot, but what model and year is the dub?!
  3. cars you love but you know its wrong!

    Got to agree with the AX GT. My dad gave me a blue 1.0 for my first car that I shared with my sister. 4 forward gears. He had a lovely white AX GT sitting in the yard, but I checked the insurance... nearly £2.5k, and that was nearly 10 years ago when I was 18. Still wish he had it... + 1 on the fiats too

    Are these real? The 'Ficticia' text on the bottom left leaves you wondering???
  5. Photoshop or real?

    Different alloys on the front too, couldn't find anyone selling 6 of the same!
  6. Newbie with '87 Mk 2 Golf GTi 2.0L 16v

    I think it's staying VW for a while but I'll see how it goes. With my first dub still in the garage after so long it may not end up that way though! Cheers guys
  7. My few toys

    Nice! A Mk 2 lurking behind the Caddy?!
  8. bit of help plz

    The tin worm. I bought my pretty mint looking mk2 a year ago. When I pulled it apart I nearly sh!t myself. Not mint at all. Though it is green. Sills, spare wheel well, filler cap, tailgate, under the battery. The list goes on from what I've heard.
  9. Hi all, Newbie saying hello. Sold my perfectly good 2001 Astra 1.6 16v for a Mk 2 GTi. Had it for nearly a year, driven it 3 days. Been in the Garage and still is. Hasn't really put me off though. I think I'm in the right place. Anyone got a Vauxhall for sale?
  10. Death of a Rocco

    You didn't by any chance get that off a guy in the Ballymena/Ahoghill area?!
  11. Next meet

    Christ, My first insurance was 2.5k too, myself and my sister. Blue Citroen AX 1.0L with a white front bumper. 4 speed gearbox :0D

  13. warning about number plates

    Maybe this is a silly question, but is there anyone out there making pressed plates with the legal font? They'll still look better than 'normal' plates, and as long as they're reflective it shouldn't matter?
  14. Changing logbook details?

    Hi all, does anyone have any experience changing details on a log book? For example, I'm thinking about buying a 1.3cl and dropping a 2.0L 16v in it that I have in my current car. How tricky is it getting engineers reports and changing the actual vehicle details. More importantly - what does the Insurance company see? A 2.0L 16v or something that is obviously modified? If it's changed on the log book, is the car technically still modified from the original or simply the new 16v?! Sorry about all the questions, I think the answers will make or break me buying this donor... Thanks all, D.
