My first car, bought in 2009, drove it untill 2011. Then fully restored it to better then new.
Very impressive how you restored this car.
Sweet GTI! It looks great. How big are the G60 brakes compared to stock?
huge difference, disc is 280mm*22mm vs 239*20mm, caliper front is 54mm vs 48mm, 38mm vs 36mm calipers in the back, and 22mm mastercylinder vs 20.6mm stock.
Mine was an 8v so the disks were TINY!
Ah so the same size as the VR6 Mk3 ones then. That's what I'm running on mine. I did a 20vt swap though and I wide-tracked it. Changed the pedals to the mK4 (DBW) and installed the mk4 brake booster and master cylinder. It's a bit of overkill on the brakes at times as they lock up with ease but I haven't gotten them to overheat so far so that's a bonus.
