Hello there!

Hey guys! This is my first post here, because I am new. I hope you guys still welcome me around here, even though I'm mostly an enthusiast and I know next to nothing about cars.

Unfortunately not an eco one :P I have a Volkswagen Golf which I'd like to sell and maybe switch to something else, but I don't really have enough money right now. Also, thanks for the welcome!

A VW Golf will eco-mod just fine, a 4x4 2-ton lumbar truck, probably not.

Anyhow, post pics of your car, some of us use photo bucket.com and it is easy to use and upload with.

Check out the 65+ tips and the 100 tips links at the top of the page

Also, it doesn't matter if you post once a month or 1000 times, we are happy that you are here and may or may not have ideas that could be beneficial to the rest of us.

I personally have been a member since 2008 but really got into it around 2014 as times have changed and I have made this more of a game, and that for me, makes it fun!!!

What's so bad about the golf?
If it has the 1.8t engine then I understand.

Thanks for the warm welcome!
Well I'd like to get a "blue efficiency" golf, since mine isn't, and I've heard those are better. Excuse me if I just said something dumb, it's just something I've heard from people.

OilPan is right. You can mod the Golf you own just fine. Is it a manual transmission or an automatic?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
