Rare spec GTI?


Recommended Posts

Yeah rich it is pretty difficult iirc.

I remember having a look at fitting the unit in to mine when there was a Gti with it in braking years ago. everything is electronically actuated rather than the standard cable setup. It had a couple of extra things wired to the Ecu too which was in turn wired to the fan and a/c controller in the front wing.

I got to that point and decides against it. Way too much hassle. Although it's a nice extra, very rare in uk spec cars.

If you get the wiring right, you can even get it running on a bench.

Well you can't really.

Where's the condenser and evaporator for the AC for a start?

All that unit is doing on your kitchen worktop is illuminating the screen and powering the fans, it's not climate control in that state, it's just a heater blower and a control panel.

True on the bench,; but when in the car and wired up completely, does hold whatever temperature you wish for.

I'm going to have to install this into my polo aren't I?

Good job it's coming apart next month.
