    welcome to the site fella, good to have an enthusiast on here with regards to volkswagon, i am more into my fords and the odd jap piece but currently punt about in a MK3 golf.
    do you currently drive?

    there is currently a MK1 golf sat in the work shop of my mates, it is a bare shell atm but there is 4WD and over 600horses of VR-4 power going in it this is a better power to weight ratio than a bugatti veyron for an expample.
    im sure 'psbarham' will tell you more as its in his work shop and the cars is not our but a friends who we are helping build.

    i might see if we can get a few pics to post up with a thread on the build.
