Re: (90_golf)

there are several different management systems that came stock in our cars. some have fuel rails and junk and other just constantly squirt fuel and junk. some can be chipped, others can be enriched. some people like what they have and others don't. the nice thing about the digi is that it will support small amounts of boost from a turbo system - a completely other side of the coin. do a couple of searches or read through the FAQ on here, you will gain a good perspective of our cars, as well as the potential of them.

get quad rounds, bbs wheels, recaros, and a vr6 or 16v, and be like everyone else on here...
seriously, welcome to the vortex, do what you want to your car, and dont let the people tell you otherwise....

youll need grill, lights and rad support for round lights.. you can usually find a whole setup on here for cheap and it takes maybe a half hour for the swap

Seriously, do what YOU want with your car. I've tinkered the idea when my trusty 8v blows up (ya, right) that I'd swap a VR or something... but realisticly I'll just get an ABA bottom etc etc...
My car is ... ummm... rough. It's my daily driver. I drive it roughly 1000km/week I use it for work. I love it. I have different gauge faces, smoked tails, Pslot rims, black headliner, relocated stereo and some more goodies that make my care my own. Oh ya, don't mind the cat, he likes to drive, but don't piss him off.

edit: Oh ya, I have flares on (the front in that pic) as I have some rust on the rear.
1990 8v 4dr Golf LAIZ (light sahara metallic). Love it.
