Hi All,

Been a member for a bit and finally bought a Golf :D I know its a 1.6
and not everyone likes them but its all i can afford and i cant wait
until i can afford a 1.8T.

Its a 1.6se on an 02 plate with 63k on the clock and FSH.

Thoughts please and some cheap mods that aren't going to screw my
insurance over :) And before everyone says it, im looking for new
wheels, if anyone has any for sale please let me know :)

Cheers guys

Ah sorry the jvc looked like a double stack
I wish!
Was my first mod, gonna get a new one soon [Y]
Heard good things about JVC and Sony Double din's if that helps and believe it or not, Halfords often do good ones

I did the following mods a while ago but forgot to update my build thread. I have serviced the car and bought some goodies from the scrapyard to clean up the interior.

New engine cover and cleaned the engine bay whilst i was there.

New wheel to replace the battered faded old one.

New gearnob and gaiter to replace the faded old one.

All this cost 15 or 20 pound, cant remember.

Think im going to debadge the rear this weekend as well and have ordered a stubby aerial
