Hi, Here is my Royal Blue G40 J599 CWB
« on: September 04, 2012, 10:15:24 pm »
Hi, I'm new to ClubG40, here is my G40, bought of bengim in early June 2012.
The car was also owned by a certain Craig Wallet (superchargedpolo).

(last car on page)

All I've done is fit the Montreals (were on previous mk2 polo), and a lower front strut brace (some people call GED bar), these two reduced vagueness when steering on long bends, and helped to tighten front of car up. Still hoping to get some GLader ARB blocks.

Here is my previous polo

I'm not 100% what colour it is to be honest, actually has a slight green pearl when close up.

Not sure about hole in dash, there is a neat blanking plate for it that fell of when photo was taken. If you look to far right of that row of buttons there is another blanking plate...

Plans wise: First to discover what the oil leak is and fix it (goes from max to min, every 1000-1500miles).
Gear stick is very sloppy, hoping to fit a bush to sort it out.

Otherwise, look after it for moment, previous owners have added stainless exhaust, induction kit and stage 4 charger.
I may add some wider tyres when these wear out, maybe better brakes, maybe better dampers but keep original springs. I have a GT inlet I could swap in.

Looked in the boot at sticker, and it is paint code LA5U - Royal Blue, Yep good spot.

Seats are good knick, previous owners have looked after it! I would like to put corrado seats in (preferably black leather), as G seats are a touch narrow for me. Plus I'd much rather wear out some corrado seats. Just got to find a scrap yard / breakers...

Took car to garage, apparently there is a banjo bolt at front of charger that is weeping, will plan to get that replaced.

Cheers

Joe

Ahh i see, Royal blue is by far the best  ;D.. wish mine was royal blue.
have to keep us updated on the seats, I can never find corrado seats anywhere.. well good ones anyway.

Do you think you'll put the badges back on? or keeping it 'stealthy'?

The oil may be coming from the oil seals in the charger is it going over the break fulid bottle? If so the charger needs a service I've just had this problem myself hope it helps

Spark Plug replace + tracking done.





Not sure what the existing plug is, says Bosch Super 4 008
