Anyone else with a 4 door GTI sort of speak . Mines basically bone stock at the moment. Pictures and comments of your mods would be great. What I would like to have done in the near future:
change badges, replace golf with 20V V in red, and change T to red one.
clear tails
clear side markers
VW aluminium shift knob
eurovision xeon halogens
17" moda R6's
tint,K&N
lowering kit
chip, still not sure which one

Re: Golf GLS 1.8T (Turbo Turd)

Yep. Got a 2001 GLS 1.8T. I love it to death, except for those awfull lint magnet seats. I wouldn't mind getting leather one day. So far I only have the Euro-GTI tails and a new Blaupunkt Head Unit. I think 17 or 18 inch rims will be next. Then lowering and then a chip. We'll see....

If it weren't for the TDI that would definitely be my first choice. UPsolute chip and Shine suspension would make it into an awesome sports sedan/HB. Minor other mods like sheepskins, carpeted mats, maybe aftermarket radio. A little conservative maybe but great allrounder.

Re: Golf GLS 1.8T (kwhiner)

The GLS 1.8T (4 door) is certainly a rare one. Since buying mine in May, I have seen only 1 on the roads. I would say that 80% of golfs/GTIs I see are regular GLS and GL and maybe 20% GTI (mostly VR6).

Same here, no mods except S2000 antenna, 8" Bazooka and red "T" badge. Will be looking for some wheels in the Spring.

I don't know Billy, you seem a littlle performance oriented. These things are heavy, really heavy.
But if you want, I will swap them with you for your engine

Who needs light wheels when you have 400hp?
Besides, I have these for when it really matters:

Whole set weighs 84 pounds, with tires...
