    Im a newbie, be kind!!

    Hi guys how u doing??

    thought id join this club as ive just purchased a 2.0 16v SRI Mk4 in silver

    Had a saxo vtr turbo before and a punto gt but decided to go for something bit more reliable even though im tempted to put a gsi turbo lump in soon!!

    To be honest im a bit dissapointed with the fuel consomption on my car but i think thats as the previous owner put a open air filter on it and i no the engine runs better with a panel filter?? First and second gear seem very long and slow!! But it looks the part and i like the lower insurance

    Some parts im really looking to get are SRI/GSI turbo 17" alloys, irmcher rear splitter,skirts and front splitter, debadged grille

    so if anybody knows of anyone selling the above please let me know!!

    oh by the way im from Bristol

    Nice meeting you all!!
