Glad you're finally doing a writeup. Nice to see more 1.8 love on here.

How's the new tranny holding up?

Liking the thread....watch out on the E-Golf wheels, they are aero designed, so improve air flow...& might be lightweight anyway...

I also see you went GTE front grille.....If there was a way of cleanly removing the blue strip & leaving full chrome & full chrome badge surround..I would...

How's the Polo GT steering wheel?

Sucks that it happened, but what an adventure. Can't wait to see where it ends up.

Although there was an early run that is compatible, your 1.8 will most likely have smaller bearings, not allowing the use of a 2.0 crank. Being that you have a launch Edition, there may be some hope. Good luck.

2.0T GLI longblock ordered. 28k miles coming from a '17 GLI. Should be running again by next Wednesday!

build your own, if the "numbers" part is fine.....all matching numbers & spec you want....win win...

Really happy I came across your build thread for the information on the brakes on your wagon. I’ve been looking for an upgrade that would keep the same size rotors and allow me to keep my 16” snow setup.

Bummer to see the old motor blow but happy to see you already got a new one!

If you swap a new motor in your car does the 100k mile bet continue? Or is it null and void now that it blew up the first motor?
