  1. Hi!

    Hi all, I thought it was about time I introduced myself on here formally. I have met a few of you over the years at shows and hoping to meet more over the coming years. After owning ~80 cars in the past 10 years I decided now was the time to go and buy my dream car and start the project. This led me to leaving a deposit on a 1988 MK1 Caddy yesterday. Looking forward to picking it up in November once it has had a few bits and pieces done! From there I plan on using it and finally attending some GTINI shows in it, rather than just spectating as I have done. So that's me, hi all and look forward to meeting you! Ross
  2. Polo 6n2, Polo GTI Donor Car now

    I used to own that gti! Sold it after Dubshed this year and then saw it had been vandalised on Gumtree. I did a timing belt and water pump on the engine - was also a massive service history on the car before I owned it! Great to see the engine will be used!

    Some photos and a quick write up over at Gotlowz - http://www.gotlowz.co.uk/gtini-castlewellan-2014/ Anyone need any high res copies let me know.

    Not surprised, looking a lovely motor - my own car just sold today so was interested in buying it! The search continues!

    Great day at the show, will be processing and uploading my photos later tonight. Well done to everyone involved! The wife bought a Dubshed bag to use in work - dedication! As an aside, does anyone have contact details for the white mk2 that was for sale down the very bottom corner, alongside the white leon with the BMX on the roof? I took a photo but can't make out the writing! Thanks
  6. Mk1 caddy just picked up

    Excellent story with the tattooist! Health to drive - very jealous! Will it be at any shows this year? Would love a look round it!
  7. Mk1 caddy just picked up

    Looks a great example of a Caddy! Always like them a bit rough around the edges! Where did you find it? Not often a NI plated one comes up!
  8. MK3 Ibiza Cupra

    Recently bought this low milage MK3 Cupra. The car has been well looked after by previous owner who stored it in a garage while he worked offshore. The condition of the car sold me on it as this car doesn't suffer from the all too common rust problems of older VAG models. Also a good service history and low mileage (currently 82k) helped seal the deal! The car has also been REVO mapped which makes it a very capable little car! I did a bit of work to the car when i got it to make sure it was running correctly and to cure an intermittent misfire that was present ~3k, turned out to be the MAF and coolant temp sensor both giving intermittent incorrect readings! This work included:- - New Battery - Refurbished Alternator - Timing Belt Kit and Water Pump (metal pump used) Replacement - Aux Belt Replacement - Coolant Temp Sensor - Genuine Bosch MAF - New discs and pads all round - VAC hoses all replaced with silicone equivalents - Full service (Shell Helix Oil, Oil Filter, Air Filter & Spark plugs) - 2 news Toyo T1R tyres As the wife was away for the weekend I had a chance to give it a quick once over with a coat of Autobalm for protection, followed by a few snaps up near T13 in Belfast's Titanic Quarter. Plans are to either sell the car (as it is sitting in the garage 90% of the time currently) or keep upgrading and move towards stage 2. Currently have a Forge TIP on route for it! Comments welcome!

    Looks great! I have a red GTI and in the same boat as yourself - other projects mean I think it might have to go shortly! Great fun little cars!
