MKIV Golf Seat Mounted Fire Extinguisher Bracket...

Found this while mooching on German eBay... No interest to me but may be useful to anyone with a MKIV Golf in their stable, I'm guessing they're old stock and perhaps no longer readily available, but I could be wrong! Not sure it's all there either, check out the image of the fitting instructions, t...

They're currently re-running the first seasons shows and it's a white MK2 Golf GTI this Friday, 12th July at 9.00pm. Try these - Freeview Channel 6...

Type 3 and Beetle Parts...

I've done a bit of research but as usual there's so much conflicting evidence I'm really none the wiser. I'm aware a few members on here are also Beetle fans and/or have owned one so I'm hoping you may be able to shed some light on something for me. The question's straightforward enough, maybe the a...

Re: Rear VW badge reinstalation

I bought a 'new' badge just like yours a few years back, a genuine part. Just tried fitting it and as you say it doesn't want to go into the grommets... I'd be concerned that the pins on the badge'll snap if I try any harder. Maybe soaking the grommets in boiling water beforehand, the problem seems ...

Re: Tow bar.....wrong?

Found this on eBay.de... possible your PEKA brand of towbar, but if not it's very similar and the principle could be the same. The hole as shown in your first image seems to allow a bolt to the horizontal inner metal bumper bar, the 2 x legs into the bodywork not being needed. May even use one the h...

Re: New Member, heres my 1991 Mk2 GTI

Never got into Facebook and the likes so can't properly comment on what goes on there. Having said that I took the plunge and created an account recently, simply to get access to a couple of BMW owner groups, but I was culled by Facebook within a few weeks for appently being fake! Bizarre, but just ...

Re: 306 XSI - alternative 90's hot hatch

Daughter just got her driving test so was looking around for a suitable car. Being near you, you'll maybe know MH Motors on the Antrim Road, between Mallusk and Templepatrick? Called in on Friday for a nosey around and for a moment I actually thought it might have been you until I saw the reg! There...
