    Golf gti mk3
  1. Will they do suspension work i haven't used them before.
  2. Son has a 09 Scirocco gt tdi and there is a vibration above 30 mph. Sounds like a wheel bearing. Can you recommend anyone near lisburn to look at it. I've had wheel bearings replaced in the past that only lasted a couple of weeks and failed again, won't name garage. Any recommendations?
  3. Mk3 gti letting go

    Bitter sweet moment, have loved driving my seventeen year old mk 3 GTI. Daily driver Dragon green cost £3000 ten years and 100000 miles ago. Spent over £3000 servicing and maintaining it. Wife hates it. Car dosnt like her either grones and rattles when shes in it. I just turn up the stereo and the rattles go away. Me and my car know each other very well. Thats why its so hard to move on. I know its time, pint of oil per week, window regulator gone, starter groans, power stearing belt squeels on full lock. indicator cover missing. Ne/t repair will be more than the cars worth but i keep on driving it WHY?

  10. Classic Insurance

    Has any one any experience of classic car insurance. I have been running a 1997 mk3 gti daily for 5 years, but have had to buy and insure another car while work is being done ( Sills and floor repairs ). I would like to keep the GTI insured while the work is being done ( going to and from Mot center etc) but want to do so as cheaply as possable. Can anyone reccomend a company and what terms and conditions apply.
  11. Hi guys, I need help with my 97 MK3 GTI. In May i got the front nearside wheel bearing changed and since then the turn in has been awfull i took the car back to get the caster angle set up but again it didnt feel right. the bearing is making a noise again. I was wondering if you guys could reccomend a garage to do the work properly.
