After months of searching and saving I've finally got myself another golf, a mk3 tdi. Has the gti interior (which is mint!), deep dish alloys and coilovers. Its lovely to drive, isnt rotten underneath and is a miser on fuel what more could ya want


Needs some bit's and bobs! two new back tyres, gear selector needs to be adjusted, some welding on the exhaust, sunroof needs a bit of tlc (its taped shut
), and other small little things like a decent radio.

Pics are below, just gave it a quick bath so when I get the chance it'll get a proper wash and wax




I love how low it is, a bit impractical for the roads around where I live but I dont care!




Dont know the make of the wheels, think they look well though





Sunroof needs to be seen to



Should be on the road 100% next week

and my dad insists i raise it up on inch front and back but we'll see

Nice example, i like the wheels and as said look like Brock B2s. Is it on coilovers? It doesnt seem that low unless the ground on which the photos were taken is a hill?

I love the wheels, it was the first thing I liked when I saw the car on done deal

Yeah its on coilovers, the ground is uneven in that pic so it dosent look low. Its not super low though, just compared to the jeep I was driving all summer it feels like im sitting on tarmac all the time
Ill have a heap of proper pics up in the next few weeks

Did you look in the back of the wheel when you had it off to see what make they are?

Nice car btw, I've a set of Rh cups in 8x15 that are "identical" to your wheels (bar center caps, i've vauxhall in mine)

Don't see many of these around if so...love my 3dr tdi


Tis a cool motor indeed. I had a tdi 3dr once, came from NI originally i think, sold it about 4 years ago, never saw it again until 3 weeks ago when i saw it twice in the one week. It's now got a couple of rust holes

Its taped shut now
, was sure my dad would be able to fix it but no joy! Dont mind the gti arches n skirts, I didnt like the headlights at first but they look pretty cool at night so I decided to keep them, had planned to put mk4 lights on it.

i never needed to tape it. if you get someone to push down on it while you close it using the motor, it should close tight enough and prevent any leaks. thats what worked for me anyways.
you got any more plans for it?? and if your ever thinkin of sellin, give me a shout.
