    "E" stands for electronic = I can't usually fix :thumbs do

    And injectors have a nasty habit of gumming up..... even if they are more economical ;)

    Went for a spin around the streets tonight, front tyres must be replaced (wet road + hill + front wheel drive = spin)

    EFI is much better than the ole Carbys...

    They are much better to start in the morning...and are more economical..

    And Injecters pretty rarely clog up...

    If it were my choice…I would go the Electronic Fuel Injection...

    If Carburettors were better than EFI...they wouldn't have replaced Carburettors with EFI... :p

    Yes Moose, there are very distinct advantages to using EFI - it's just that I'm familiar with carburetters (ask Mr. C why he doesn't get a new car - same idea) :laugh:

    And it rarely gets below 9 degrees where I live - so I don't have a problem with cold starts ;)

    Got 2 new 13" Dunlops put on the front today, alignment and full balance. Seems OK, but the spare had an "illegal" puncture repair, whatever the hell that means :confused:

    Power Steering reservoir is strangely missing (not that you need it in a small car anyway), looking at how much a compressor for the air conditioner would cost (a lot I imagine).

    Just keeping peeps here up-to-date :wave:

    There's only a certain amount you can do at home anyway on a car nowdays...some day you will have to switch over...why not now?

    I agree MySTiCuSS, but Volkswagen parts are very hard to get (and very expensive) in Australia :(

    There is no way in hell I would buy an engine with a carby. Too old and crappy, uneconomical and did i say old.

    I'm happy with my EFI 2.4L 4-cyl toyota, good, reliable car.


    And from what it sounds like Al, you got sold a lemon. Obviously the car has been stripped before it was handed over to you.

    Err...... what happens if we were aware of that? ;)

    If you strip things like the radio/CD player, you save $$$. If you get the 10" sub out, more $$$ saved (besides I need the boot space).

    So it sometimes works out better to get a stripped car for a lot less than to pay thru the nose for a fully decked-out version :)
