VWoA should equip its GTIs with those Pirelli tires instead of those shoddy Michelin HX MXM4 tires.

I'm in Salisbury, Wiltshire.
Got the exhaust done in AmD www.auto-amd.com Based near Banbury (just north of Oxford) would be about a 250 - 300 mile round trip for you but worth it. They are the largest installer of the Milltek system in the UK!

well it looks wicked!...looks a lot nicer then the 4-motion exhaust pipe though!...whats the drive like 2002 GTI compare it to a 2001 GTI?..any differences?..as my boss got a 2000 GTI and i can feel its more of a punch when accelerates.

not thinking of getting a 25th GTI in the UK?

Re: New Pics of my UK GTI 1.8T (webbman3)

Not gonna go down the 25th anni route at the mo.....
Only done 1k in it so far so it's hard to say how much punch it's got It's doesn';t feel as quick as the demonstartor bu then that had done nearly 10k so had loosened up.
I did notice with the zorst though some extra grunt lower down, I pressume from having slightly more torque,

Yeah I was test driving one of the dealers demo car before i bought my car and it felt abit faster but now feels more or less like that besides i have done 8k on it now so it feels smooth so hopefully yours will be pretty similar to the demo car u drove a while back...
did u managed to get recaro seats?..as i heard that VW stop putting them in for the 02 version of the GTI...

Yeah...Recaros aren't standard anymore....
The only way to get Recaros is to upgrade to Full Leather Recaros - The cloth ones aren't even an option any more..

Not True, many people (ME) and others are selling all of these at any given time, you can usually find just about anything thanks to all the wonderful people on vortex... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
