Hi,

Im not yet an MK4 owner, but its what i hope to be soon. Drive an MK4 Polo at the moment, but think its time for the next step. Looking to spend around ?6,000/?6500 and im wanting 3 doors and more than 1.4.

Ive been looking through the members gallery, and you can tell you guys really like your cars. Im not surprised, there are some real inspiration cars in there. Feel welcome all ready.

Welcome to the forum mate, Sure you'll be able to find a decent example TDI for your money....maybe even a 1.8T GTI [:D]

The GTI come in 2 main guises, 2.0l 8v 115BHP and the 150BHP 1.8l 20v turbo. If you can get one thats fits your bill for the money I'd definatly go for turbo.

I'm from over the other side of the moors in Baildon, got any mates over this way? I sometimes go out on the beer in Ilkley, not since before Christmas though.

Welcome mate.

Can't go wrong with the ole soot machines (yeh, ok - i'm biased)

If you're looking to tune a GTI, i'd get the 1.8T!

Bit of a tough situation. with my budget (?6,500) im gonna struggle to get a GTI with sub 100,000 miles. i can get a low milage 3 door but it will only be a 1.4. trying to find a compromise, but they are few ard far between.

And thats before you start modding whatever you buy [:D]

Now your a member on here somehow I think you might end up with an extended budget [;)]

Still looking, and still want a black 3 dr. would love a 1.8 or 2.0 much diff in insurance? been quoted ?750 for full comp on a 2.0 GTi. Fed up with my polo now, want some torque.! Bumped budget up to ?7,000. mainly to get the mileage down. Keep an eye out for a nice motor you yorkshire folk.
