Make sure both front seats move to allow access into the back, apart from that I think it's just the same as other Mk4 faults

get a 1.8 T Gti or you are wasting your money, then just the usual mk4 faults,
Always baffles me why you're wasting your money if you don't buy a turbo[:(]? I've had a non turbo for five years now and I'm more than happy with what I've got as it's exactly what I wanted.I have about as much interest in big BHP and engine tuning as I do in flower arranging,a lot of other people are the same and will always be happy with stock BHP outputs and buy their cars for other reasons.

Laffin. Your own thread? lol.

Imagewerx. I believe there were 2 threads initially, and this is probably the second, less popular thread.

That's what The Allstar meant above by "door drop",yes it can be fixed easily with the right tools and NOT by putting a trolly jack under it as I'm sure someone will suggest.
