Hi I am new to the forum, just wanted to say hello and let you know about me and my motor. My first car was a white Mk2 Gti which was sadly killed by a bastard taxi driver after 3 years of love and attention, enough said about that. On my second Gti, a black 95 Mk3 Specs below. I'm in the sunny UK I have done almost 70,000 miles driving Gti's over the past 5 years, I have been doing a lot track days for the last four. Joined the local motor club at Christmas and now have a competition licence I am slowly getting into Sprints and Hill Climbs but money has stopped me from doing as many events as would have liked. Been dreaming of a supercharged swift for a few years and have finally chucked the money into it, (a lot more than I paid for the car) should be up and running on low boost in the next week or so, fingers crossed it doesn't go bang ! will post the first the rolling road print out for you and some pics of the car when its all done.

Hope i haven't boared you to much !

Hi my name is Nathan.

I currently live in Townsville and on my uni holidays I live in Toowoomba, at the moment I drive a 1974 Mazda RX-3 coupe but i used to own the swift cino that swifty18 now owns mods that I done to the swift include:

Engine rebuild with a shaved and cleaned up head,
Rejetted carby,
14' CSA twister wheels,
lowered 1.5'
kenwood headunit
kenwood 7x10's
2 x kenwood 10' subs running off an audiobahn A300l amp.
(There you go Heidi :wink: )

The RX-3 is currently off the road for a full respray and also I'm currently getting a 300HP 13b turbo motor built for it.

Cheers

Hi all (waves and shakes hands with everyone)
lets see

i have a mk2 GTI brought it about to years ago off my mate
it came with:
veilside front bar and side skirts
blue paint
sterio
lowered on superlow kings
koni shocks (adjustable)
16" mags
pod filter

i have
retrimed the interior (backs of seats, door trims and the back peices) soon i am goin to do the rest of it ie: seats, new carpet, roof lining..

i have changed my sterio set up about 3 times now but this time i think im going to leave it like this :roll:

about a year ago the car got scratched all over so i had 2 get a respray, in the time that it was all scratched i smashed it and crumbled up my front bar.. so i got a new one..
got the car sprayed bout a month later.. went and saw my painter he mixed up a nice colour for me it was still blue but when the light hits it right you can see abit of green and purple..

a few months later i blew up my gearbox doin a burnout, (tried to copy my bro which was 15 at the time) he ripped one up got it smoking up nicely, then i jumped in dumped the clutch at bout 5k smoked it up very very nicely then 4got to put it in 2nd :oops: so i just went and brought a reco cino box 8)

now the engine has done about 235thou k's gettin a rebuild at the end of the year (hopefully with some head work done at the same time) :wink:

just recently i have brought a veilside rear bar (which is getting painted atm) and i have changed my back lights from mk2-mk3 (that center peice is a pain in the ass to put in)

about 2 months ago i almost sold it but i just couldnt let it go (ive got the gti bug)so im keeping it and rebuilding it slowly :lol:

i think thats all mite edit later but for now
catch

Hi everyone, my name is Andrew. I live at Newcastle in Australia, and this is one of the first times I have been on a Forum, so go easy ;) I have a 1992 GTi, It's Black but the roof is falling to bits :( So far not many mods have been done, I got it pretty much stock. My driving record is..... impeccable, and anything the NSW Police tell you is a lie just kidding :^o

Whats up people? Been reading posts forever but had nothin to say. My real name is Paris and im 22 years old.

When i first joined about three or four months ago i had a 93 falcon wagon for surfing and camping, but ive since crashed it. That bad boy wasnt worth fixing. Got tired of not having a car so....I put my loan application in today!!!!! :D
Shouldnt be any hassles but its a deferred repayment student loan and apparently they take like a month to be approved.
So at the moment im still tossing up between a Gti and a Honda VFR400. Both so much fun!
Im more concerned with power and reliability than kits/paint/wheels, but its all good. If anyone has a swift with some decent engine mods done, (or if not, a corresponingly low price) that they want to get rid of in the coming months, fill me in huh?
I want to keep the thing atmo, but im interested in exploring the possibilities of cams, chip, cold air intake, high compression pistons and rings, stealth exhaust, pumped and rolled guards, deep dish rims, half roll cage,.....ghhuuaauurch(drool).

I really enjoy checking the new posts every day and learning about these fat cars. WaylowJr that sounds like a good idea mate, i'd love to come down and meet everyone. I drive past the carpark in my loaner volvo almost every weekend on my way to a gig or something. Never even thought there'd be RedlineGti boys representing.

Hi everyone, i'm Ben, and i drive a swift.

It's my second swift, as my 1st swift was written off when a drink driver hit me from behind at 70km/h, pushed me through an intersection into a telegraph pole...

I'm from the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, actually in Sydney unlike a majority of NSW members on here who live out in the sticks :lol:

I'm currently at Uni, struggling to make enough money to run my swift, let alone pay all my debts... [typical uni student i guess]



I enjoy long walks along the beach at sunset, and spending time with my closest friends.
