    Hopefully I'll be running mine for years. I love it to bits. Still don't know what I have that would be any use. Can't do that lol. Going to try that bearing fix with how rare these are.

    I'm not going to bin the old box. It was hard enough sourcing that one. Probably is the ffv one, just the breakers don't know what's going on. Interestingly, rang veedubs up in Gateshead and they had never heard of a 1.7. Something interesting?

    I'll definitely have a look into that as a bit extra power going up hills wouldn't go a miss. Gearbox is in and doing 80 @ 3000rpm! 😀 Glad it was the right box. Possibly like. How much? I like the rat/patina look. Apologies for ruining the colour.

    Ok magic, I'll look into that MK2. I'm not looking to sell it on, I love it to bits. I just want to concentrate on getting it sorted, then when I get bored of the SDI speed I might go down the conversion route when funds allow... But that's a ways away. Thanks for the reference on the RPM. I'll see what it sits at tomorrow once it's fitted

    She gets waxed everyone she's washed. Anyone recommend any particular type of box oil. I seem to remember seeing a post somewhere about a different grade to the standard stuff, but I can find the thread now. Many thanks in advance

    The guy who had it before me has already attacked the back with a sander, so I thought might as well carry on. Yeah there's a few gti's round here and a few chavvy looking ones as well. I'll definitely have a look into that bearing and I'll get some more pics up :]

    The strange thing about it is it wines from 40-55 ish. It's definitely transmission based as when you press the clutch in it disappears. It also whines when letting off the accelerator in 1st. Shame about that box as I rang the seller (breakers in Ipswich) and enquired as to whether it was the one I needed. I'll have a look into that seal and bearing kit as I'd rather not be reving the tits off it. Thanks for the kind words on the colour but it won't be like that for long. Going down the patina/rat route

    Hi Y2ACP, I'll upload some pics tomorrow when it's light. She's low, got retrofit lenses with HID's custom soundsystem. Looking to do much more when funds allow.

    Hi MK2, Yeah, I've already ordered a gearbox. It should be here tomorrow. It's cost about the same as the repair. Might strip the old box down and try your fix and keep it just in case. The box I've got on the way is ETF
