He's going to re-inact the D-day landings and float across the channel in a Golf GTi and pick up Tom Hanks for us all to poke with a stick

This GTi he's saving must be owned by a chav, and it's going to take
him "about an hour" to talk it into changing the GTi for a Saxo VTR, or
even better, a VTS!!

LOL near enough , it was something like that.

The sotry begins (wat have i got myself into).

As I said before in a previous post, I am looking for a 1.8T mk4.

I had a look for a while for one and found one on autotrader. Had a look, was nice but had a few things such as scratches, dents etc. Now i managed to get quite a bit off the guy cos of this and said id think about it.

TBH i couldnt handle seeing a GTi like that. So now i've got it.

and need help lol

First main prob

Scratches = will be taken care of in a body shop

Toad alarm = god knows how the hell you work this piece of crap!

Few serious probs

Engine cuts out - This only happened a few times on my way home, but at lights when ive stopped - Anyone know whats causing this?

Air bag - The light is on continiousley and says air bag fault - Any ideas?

Speedo - Its not telling the right speed on the digital clock bit. If im doing lets say 40mph it will say like 22mph - Once again ideas?

Apaprt from that, theres nothing else that I can see so far, itll be a fun and frustrating project, just hope overal it aint a waste of money.

Oh and its one sweet drive :)
