golf4ever wrote:Hi Guys,

Just got my MK1 Gti. I noticed it starts fine but sometimes the engine light comes on. I can also hear a winning sound coming from the dash.

Any ideas in what the problem could be?

Re: MKL's MK2

Please make sure you have the polo fuel level sending unit installed, if you use the Golf's one your fuel indicator will show empty when full and vice versa

Exhaust issue

good day guys I took in my ABF Jetta in to Noise Boys for a new exhaust as the old system had corrosion and was now too loud for my liking. I had the two silencer system installed and afterwards my jetta was sounding much better. http://i224.photobucket.com/albums/dd260/mafosta/mk2exhaust2_zps37fd1d...
