    BREAKING 1999 Mk4 Golf V6 4motion

    Breaking silver 5 door mk4 Golf 2.8 V6 4motion. Apx 111,000 miles (haven't had time to check yet)

    Front suspension/wheel damage to N/S/F and steering rack/subframe

    Engine ECU has been mapped by us here at BVR.

    Full black leather Recaro interior.

    All none damaged parts available.

    Until Friday this was used daily by one of our customers, they crashed it and had it towed here - we ended up owning it

    Nice, was it yours? If so how much difference did it make (i.e worth it?) and improvement in mpg?

    EDIT: Do you have to faf about with keys/immob etc when swapping the ecu, or is it unplug 1 plug another?

    Not Biscs, he works for me.

    For a naturally aspirated engine the VR6 lump has really good gains, it makes them more responsive.

    Yeah you would have to have the immobiliser recoded to match the new ECU.

    £100 delivered (but would really prefer to sell the dash clocks, ECU, engine and loom as a job lot for a conversion)

    Ahh right sorry. How'd you go about recoding to the new ecu? Also would that be a ideal time to get a new key since i need one. ;-)

    I'm definately interested depending on how difficult the coding side is, but if you want to see if you can sell as a job lot first i understand.
