Here’s my gti 180, kind of saved it from being broken as I picked it up at a local car auction for £800 with no mot looking a bit sorry for itself. Despite its appearance it drove ok and I was pleasantly surprised at how well it got down the road.

First thing was to get rid of the rear Lexus style lights as one of them had a broken lens, I went for stock face lift units. Not sure if they were part of the sp kit as the car has the rest of the kit. Also changed the exhaust for a used scorpion cat back as the car is way too loud with the dragon racing system that was on the car. I gave it a good bath and checked all levels before driving it again before I take it in to work to put on a ramp to properly see what I’ve gotten myself in to.

Then I decided to ditch the interior and stick it on the scales, the weight is with 20 litres of fuel.

Decided to go for a sparco race seat on side mounts on custom brackets, a schroth 6 point harness and a sparco steering wheel.

As I got the car with only a couple of old mots and no real service history the next step was a full service including a cam belt and water pump change as well as deleting the air con and secondary air pump.

Nice to see another track car out there, I would consider dropping wheel size and weight out of the wiring harness too as there is fair few KG in the harness!

I bet standard headlights would weigh less too...less expensive if you break them too!
