Nice one mate, so your getting a Sunny GTI?
Aint they got about 140BHP standard? thats not bad at all, abit of tuning could go along way on that car.
Oh and for the coils, i agree some can be pretty rough and harsh for road use, but it depends on which type you get, some are also adjustable, so you can soften them up abit if you wish.
Ive got some FK's on the Astra, and they are great, they deffinatly aren't too harsh in my opinion and the handling really is amazing, summer will be the ultimate test when the roads warm up some. They are fully adjustable too, and can drop up to 70mm
Ive only got it on standard wheels at the moment though which are 17's i'm after some 18's, they aren't the best of brands but look alright, was considering painting them or having them refurbed in black as they are second hand and seeing how much more i can drop her.
yeah ill be after a GTI to bounce around in until i can get a GTI-R im sunny mad lol, yup about 140bhp standard, prob around 125 after all these years, exhaust & intake and a few other bits and bobs should take it up to around 160 without breaking the bank, N/A tuning gets pointless really quick.
Uses the sr20 engine too, so GTI-r engine can be dropped straight in, but the prospect of 220bhp at the front with about 300kg less weight than a pulsar is a fast but scary idea.
I toyed with the idea of getting a R5 GTT, but i dont know if i can be arsed with maintenance costs and finding a gen of a 5 these days is very very hard.
Coils and their harshness come down to the driver really, i certianly dnt mind being bounced around
aw man you got to replace the wheels, put 16's on and slam the fucker
edit: perfect GTI on pistonheads, such a shame i dont hav that kind of cash right now http://www.pistonhea...ales/414540.htm
