    Just two simple questions please

    1. Are the new 1.9 CDTi 120bhp 8v or 16v?

    2. How hard is it to spray the black plastic door handles and black plastic door trim on the outside. Can you buy these parts already sprayed for the Mk4?

    i sprayed my handles and they where fine. non colour coded so bumpy black...

    did same with strips and they came up cr4p. bought some smoth primed ones from vaux, and painted them, spot on...

    if can afford i'd order painted or primed parts that are alread smothed. save you time and effort and c/c them yourself...

    sorry no number flying about, they did have the indent but i filled that. when got em they where fully smothed plastic, ready to spray...

    think it was about £70/80 for all 4 strips...

    Yeah I would agree with Jammy there.

    Even though 8v's give more low rev power I thought that 12v's would still be the better option.

    So the 150bhp is 12v's then, am going to be awhile saving for that beauty, Gun metal grey sportshatch, the dream.....
