    Hey what's up guys....

    I just started to wonder if there are any Europeans or owners of European cars in this forum?

    I moved to Germany from the states about 2 years ago.

    So I've really gotten into the European car scene.

    Now don't get me wrong, I'm as much as a fanatic of the American muscle cars of the 70s as anybody on this board(Cudas rule).

    But it would be interesting to see some European names, mainly VW(Golfs etc).

    Golfs?

    I'm working on a VW Polo. That's something you don't see on this site everyday..lol
    I love the bulkiness of those cars.

    Nope both are GTI's...the 02 version was a somewhat daily driver car that i hooked up for show and some go. It was a 1.8T. And the project car is a 91 Gti turbo vr6.

    Polo's are cool little cars.

    hmmm......There are different kinds of gti's here.
    GTI is the description of the engine like 1,4i 16V or 1,6i 16V etc.

    Do you use GTI as a description for a model?

    Ya I have the Polo 6N. Those look real nice when you fix em up.

    Ahh yes.....then I'm sure you've heard of VW Scene or VW WOB.

    Those are all VW magazines.

    I get those on the regular and according to the layouts Belgium has a lot going in terms of car tuning.

    Do you have the 2,8 or 2,9L VR6?

    The sound on those is crazy!
    I've been looking for one for my Polo but I can't find em for
    a)a decent price
    b)or with decent mileage

    I might just drop in a G60 or 1,8T.
    Those are easy.

    Not sure what part of europe you guys are in.

    But the best looking MKIV i have seen was Gary H. His car is just absolutely beautiful.

    Yeah in U.S, we have the GTI which is the 2 door that is a 1.8t or VR6, and the Golf is the 4 door that is the 2.slow or TDI.

    Yeah i love my project car. I mean how fun is it to pull stock or modded E46 M3's & M5's in my lil 91 gti.

    Ya I think I've seen some pics of your project.

    So I guess that explains the whole gti thing over there....kinda confusing.

    I wonder why they don't use the same name.

    I friggin hate M3's.
    Although a lot of M3 parts are available for my car like mirrors etc.

    yeah M3 mirrors are a big thing around here putting them on MKIV GTI's.

    They dont use the same name cause VWOA is gay...

    Ya so I see the styles are similar.

    You see more M3 mirrors on v-dubs than the factory mirrors.

    Personally I'm not a huge fan of em.....they stick out too far.

    I'm looking for nice cup-mirrors for mine.

    Do you have any pics of your projects?
