    golf vs a3

    Hi all i been out cruising tonight and had a run with a mates golf mk4 1.6 8v and he left me for dead so i dont know whats going on here i thought because i got the 1.6 16v i'd have the edge anyway i sat in his car after and it felt load faster than my a3 so is there more to it than just the engine whats everyones thoughts on this? also got this video from earlier

    Is your an 8L (mk1 A3) ? Didn't think there was a 16v 1.6 in the 8L.

    I dont know but it was one the main selling point the previous owner said it be quicker being 16v but even so mates golf left me for dead! and sitting in his golf it really pulled me back in the seat. im thinking maybe my a3 should pull like his golf but somethin is wrong with my engine its got me absolutely pissed off

    I suspect your A3 has an 8v engine. Have a look for the vehicle data sticker either on the first page of the service book or in the spare wheel compartment. On there you will find the 3 letter engine code and the engine output in KW.

    Your mates golf pulls round the clock fairly well, it looks to go better than any 1.6 8v golf I have experienced.

    If you want a battle of the 1.6 engines buy an ek9 civic type r! You will wee all over your friends face! Or if money s tight an ek4 1.6 vti civic you will still wee on him.

    90% sure yours will be an 8v also, don't think they did a 16v 1.6 in the 8L. An engine bay pic would confirm.

    there could be all manner of sensors not functioning correctly on yours causing it to be down on power

    i just checked at a local garage and paid to have a diagnostic been told theres no fault codes and on the way back i tried from 30-80mph and i just dont understand. looking at the video he manages a 30-80ph in under 5 seconds i cant even get to 50mph in that time so have i bought a dud???

    A heavy car like a golf with a 100bhp 1.6 engine does not do 30 - 80 in 4. something seconds!

    Here's some 1.8T 150bhp golf specs:

    1.8T (150)
    Max speed: 131mph
    0-60: 8.5 secs
    0-100: 25.6 secs
    30-70: 8.5 secs(through gears)
    50-70: 9.4 secs(in top gear)


    I would say the golf in that video is not an 8v 1.6, unless it is going down a very steep hill!

    Search 30 - 80 mph on youtube. Some pretty fast cars dont manage it.

    Tbh id he interested to know what it is as it doesnt hang about. 1.8t no doubt. The music in that vid was loud which would mask the turbo and dv noise.

    That's definitely a 1.8t that's too quick to be a 1.6!

    The video has clearly been sped up.

    It's so obvious.

    he was seriously fast plus i noticed his black rub strips against his silver paint so atleast i thought it was either 1.4 or 1.6 and he did say its a 1.6
