How r yas?

I am looking to buy a new model diesel Golf, so if you can help me out that would be great. I used to have an mk4 130bhp and I was more than happy with it, it was a great car :)

I have been looking for a GT tdi but they seem to be rare second hand, well that and people wanting to much money for them. If I cant find one soon then I will probably buy a 1.9 tdi. Are they any good for chipping? What gains am I likley to get from that engine or should I just hold out for the gt?

I also have planned the reiger bodykit and 19" wheels. Reiger good choice or?

Cheers guys

Thanks for the reply fella :)

I am really looking forward to the new motor, I have a Peugeot 206 gti at the minute but it eats petrol. I love the look of the new Golf and the look of the kit from reiger . Either 3-5 door will do me so that narrows my search a bit. I was always a 3dr man but the car on reigers website shows a 5dr and I love it. I have planned Audi rs6 wheels, think they will suit it well.

Still hunting the car though. So you think a 25-30bhp gain could be possible from the 1.9 tdi? its 105 bhp isnt it?

Whats the lowest springs you can get for it at the minute? 40-45?

I probably would not go any lower than that, learnt my lesson with the 206 its lowered 70 mm at the back and 50-60 at the front. I cant even take people in the back, not very practical but looks well.

Like so :

Setup an account with photobucket.com (Its free). Then to post up pictures all you have to do is copy and paste the img below the image into any post in the forum to display that image.

Handy once you get used to it.
