    Just got back from me jollies and was chuffed when Sixt handed me the keys to a new VW Golf only done 3000 miles. Started off as a great car, I know it's a brand spanker but my god was it quiet, even at 80mph it was silent, you couldnt even hear any noise from the tyres. It was averaging 50mpg...

    Has anyone changed the plugs on a 2003 1.4 Golf and able to advise me on how to remove what looks like the DI? There are two bolts holding a tray with coils over the sparking plugs, but then what? I think that it might be similar to the Saab and just pull off, but it is pretty tight and you...

    Do excuse me if I'm posting in the wrong place, but I'm considering relegating my c900 autos to the subs' bench and doing the bulk of my mileage in a smallish diesel. It has to be an auto, and to have been available for long enough and in sufficient quantities to make it relatively inexpensive...

    Can anyone advise if the heads on the 1600 & 1800cc (carb) Golfs are the same? It looks like my son has stripped a plug thread so it might be a helicoil insert The alternative is to get another head from a brakers. According to Haynes the valve sizes are the same (height and diameter) the...

    Now that I've got your attention .. My best pal has a friend (female) with a 1996 VW Golf Diesel. I asked him why he hadn't tried to talk her out of it! She has been told that it needs a new water pump, and to help him out ( ) I said I might be prepared to take the job on. Despite my...

    Have seen a few of these about on the road recently - have they had a face lift? - wondered what they were. Just a quick look on Google - pretty impressive........ Has anyone driven one here? Mike

    May be the "peoples car" but it isn't very cheap. Prices start at £19995! It's got a 2.0FSI Turbo - 200PS - don't know how quick it will be though - not a light car.

    Are any golfers going to Anglesey? If so, do you fancy trying to fit in a round on Saturday morning? I suspect that I might feel very lonely on this list, but I'll give it a try .. 1 Keith

  14. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Just taken my friend to buy a MK4 Golf 1.8T GTI. When compared side by side both cars have around 150bhp, however the Golf is reknowned to be a little porky and my 9-3 is a (lighter?) ragtop. I was just wondering if any of you guys had any idea which car would be quickest off the line. No...

    Mrs has a 1.4 Golf (1994 88k miles). On braking, typically above 40 mph and especially down a hill, there is a graunching / grinding/ rumbling noise coming from the front of the car. It's not really loud, but is disconcerting. Local VAG dealer and a local specialist have looked at the car and...
