309 GTI Empty 309 GTI

Well here she is, though i'd post some pics of it as i bought it, only changes i've made is i've 2 tyres on the front so it legal to drive and ive set it up on the gas anyliser, co was at 5.38 recomended 2.5-3.0 so i'd say it would have been costing the previous owner a fair few quid to run, it now set at 2.85 and she runs good only problem is i set it up warm and it wont idle when cold so i need to play a bit more Smile

First thing im doing is changing the mirrors they are S**T, i have got a spare standard pair but 1 has damaged glass and the other a damaged arm so might just put the matigs on for now and see how it looks, im not sure on the alloys at the moment im on 2 mind at the moment 1put standard alloys on it and keep everything original or 2 put smaller tyres on it and lower it 80mm de badged grill etc etc

Now I think Mike's right on this one, keep it standard (or as close as you can) I'd say proper old school but I think my school's a lot older than most of yours TBH 309 GTI Icon_lol
