  1. If anyone has this type of steering wheel for sale will you let me know...
  2. I'm actually thinking of getting one too. I want to keep my gti and get a G6r for travel to work as it's 70 mile round trip a day and hoping the extra gear on the G6r will save me a bit on fuel and I just really want one. Anyone know what mpg the G6r has? Motorway speeds
  3. I think it looks the **** mate, really like the styling! Where did u get the front bumper, skirts and spoiler?
  4. I have a tow bar on my corolla gti, it was fitted to the car when i bought it. Haven't had to use it yet but they do fit the FxGT as they are the exact same chassis just the FxGT usually were sold in countries like oz, south africa hence the different marketing name etc. As for finding one for sale i haven't seen any site that do them, best of luck finding one mate
  5. Aw man feel sorry for u, sunroof looks unreal mate, such a pity, Where abouts did you get it anyway?? Never saw one before, anyway Your Gti is looking great! Nice work mate
  6. Just a quick update on my GTi,finally have it on the road, passed the NCT no problem.recently got new alloy wheels and laguna front splitter....I know alot of you won't like the lexus lights but i had em lyin around so just put em on, quite like em but it does that from the orginal look. Car badly needs to be lowered!! thinkin of getting new shocks and springs all round ,has anyone got a G-MAX suspention system that could give me a review?
  7. Got a set of 16 inch alloys for my car and im tryin to decide what size tyre profile to get, i had 195/45/16s on my last car but im looking at 55s instead cos the ride wasn't great and not to mention pot holes but not sure if it will rub the arches!! Any one know if 195/55/16s will fit a corolla gti lowered 40mm??? thanks
  8. Have not been in my garage and seen my car in months so today i went out to her to discover there is bird **** all over it so.... straight away out wit d power washer... Here are some parts i have bought for the gti be just haven't had the time to fit them. Included scorpion exhaust, K and N filter, oil breather and air intake.stainless steel dress up kit, laguana front splitter (vented)etc. Does anyone think these alloys suit the car?? its flat and needs lowering obviously but otherwise.
  9. I'd be very interest in the koni adjustables and updated springs if u can't shift em....

  11. Was looking at getting a OBX racing manifold for my GTi..... its off a GTS US model corolla. reckon it wouldn't add much in d way of power but i have a S/S scripion exhaust and i want make it a complete S/S system.reckon it would fit??
  12. I did a compression test on my Corolla gti.... came up all around 210-220psi. this seems high as the haynes book says alot lower. anyone know wat could cause it?? Carbon build up is the only thing i can think of..
  13. pretty sure its toyota C52 gearbox!! could be wrong
  14. Cheers. Yeah i used a sanding disc on an angle grinder to remove the lettering. Im currently sanding with 1200 and will move all d way to 3000 and then buff it up! Takes a while alrite. Yeah i was looking at the OBX ones on ebay, was thinking of getting one but will they fit a gti?? I wanted a stainless steel one for both looks and exhuast flow too. I couldn't justify gettin a custom one made up for aboout 400 if its not going to give me any proformance gains. I'd just buy a set of cams with that money.
  15. Im looking for a Stainless steel exhaust manifold for a corolla gti..... i know theres probably not many about but does anyone know roughly how much it would cost to get a custom one made up??? Heres a pic of my Cam Cover, in process of polishing it up...... this is about an hours worth of elbow grease!! I plan maybe 3 more hours on it!
  16. Yeah i was very happy wit the price. I haven't gotten delivery of the exhuast yet, when i do i will be getting my trusty buffer out and give it a going over. is there a nice sound out of it?? and have u noticed any power differences over standard?? like a powerband or anything??
  17. yeah i was after one there for a while. Bought that scoripon SS on ebay last month for £130 which is very reasonable for a second hand!! Pain getting it delivered tho! Just keep on eye out on ebay etc
  18. Just saw ur post and went straight out and got a copy!! Great write up!!:)
  19. Very nice converstion mate!!! I wanna do the same with my e11 4efe....... Long term, 120,000 miles on it and not worth selling so i wanna get a ST top or BT. Did u have to mod any engine mounts or did it fit rite in?? Yeah wiring is gonna be a !Removed! but at least u ave it in.sorry no help with ur question dude
  20. yeah it'll take hours of sanding and polishing but it'll be worth it in d end!! very true but a few coats of heat clear coat will do the trick;)
  21. lookd great mate!! wanna polish my spare ones...! does anyone know can i use bigport 4age HT leas on my smallport 4age.....i know d leads ave different connectors but if i change distrubutor cap and use a bigport spark plug cover....????!!!
  22. Just had a look at my oil, for d first time in 3 years.....(car was garaged) I saw a bit of white **** in the oil cap and on dipping stick so i think the head is gone:(. My Car a Small Port non tvis My question is can i use a 4age Big port head instead, I have a head for a big port i was working on d last few weeks... coincidence or wat and i wanna see can i use this head as i can get it skimmed and rebuilt before removing the head on the car. and i have a full head gasket set for it already
  23. yeah no prob , will try to post it in the next few days. Got the Fobs and receiver from ebay.... was like 50euro! Wiring comes with the kit! easy enough to install,did it in about 2 hours although you will need a multimeter! working great, light on fob is Blue and not Red like on original ones. Connected to Parking lights too, Works from about 30 meters away!:)
