well this is only my first car...im only 17 so the 1.4 was the only insuarable golf:( anyway i have only been driving since august and in that time i have only done a few things...insuarance means i cant really touch anything that alters performance...the only major thing i have done on the outside is the 18" Fox RS UV1's and Hella tail lights...i have put an alpine head unit hooked up to the ipod adaptor on the inside...i have these connected to an audiobahn amp and a pair of audiobahn subs....they are more than loud enough.....neway let me kno wat u think...i know its not much but not bad for a first car in my opinion:)

Thats nice for a first car mate! Should be lucky, im not even gonna say what my first car was lol.

Wheels look nice, different! Colour code your rubstrips and doorhandles and lower it. Itll make a big difference

thanks for the advice guys....thinking about colour coding but i actually quite like the contrast between the blue and black even tho i kno its obvious its only 1.4 or 1.6 with the black strips....as for lowering the car....insuarance wont let me:( i have to wait till i'm 18 but more likely until i've been driving a year:(

the sad face was just a type-o....im new to the forum didnt realise i put it there

Im nineteen mate, and ive had this car ever since I started to learn,
and insurance is very painful. But wait a couple of years, and you'll
be able to get insured on some tasty stuff for similar prices that
youve got on the 1.4 now, so the tasty stuff seems more obtainable!

It makes sense in my head!

There is literally no point in modifying the 1.4 engine wise! The cars too heavy to make it worth it unfortunately.

Ive been insured on quinn direct and with pass plus I got insured for
slightly over than a grand, which is significantly cheaper than any
other quote I got!

ye exactly if anyone would quote me...it was near the ?3000 mark which i thought was a joke....zurich and norwich union are very good tho considering i haven't even got pass plus...having said that though....i am 2nd driver but all of my quotes were with me as 2nd driver

Sounds like a plan mate!

It may sound silly, but im 19 now, and I can get insured on a A3 1.8T
quattro (180bhp, 4wd, 6-speed) for about 1300! Seems a bit ridiculous,
especially when a clio 172 would cost me the best part of 3 grand to
insure!

Sounds about right mate!

If you passed you test less than a year ago, I cant recommend pass plus
highly enough. Its easy as pie if your even an average driver, and will
only take half a day or so of your time, but will save you some serious
money! Well worth it!

lol,it realy don't make sense.

When your young and want nice cars you pay loads on insurance,

then when you over the hill you don't want nice cars but pay peanut's for insurance.

lol.
