  1. Thanks for the quick response. Yes, on a warm day when the car is already warm. I do have a spacer between the carb and manifold. I can get it to start, but it is more of an annoyance. It starts so easily when it's cold, I just figured I was doing something wrong when warm, or that the choke was engaging too much when warm and flooding the engine? Any other thoughts or words of wisdom on the topic are welcome.
  2. Rather than start a new thread I will ask my question here.... I have searched via google and the forum and not found my answer. I have a Weber 38/38 with Electric Choke on my 2002. It starts and runs great! My issue is that I don't know the proper procedure for restarting the car once it is warm? If I press the gas pedal again, should it re-engage the choke as it does when it is cold? Whenever I stop at a store or stop to get gas and the car sits for a few minutes it takes a bit of cranking and feathering the gas to get it started. Is this what I should expect? Please let me know if there is some adjustment I should be making. Thank you in advance for your time and knowledge.
  3. Looks like a successful event. I will need to make sure and join the next drive.
  4. I would also like to know if the E30 wheels will fit a 2002? It was my understanding that they won't

  6. Great price from a great seller! If I didn't recently purchase a cupholder from Kooglewerks for my long center console I would be all over this! GLWS!
  7. Recaro "Trophy" seats out of an 88' VW GLI. I had the centers recovered in the Plaid cloth. As you can see I had the door panels recovered to match. The rear seat is at the Upholsterer now being recovered.
  8. I may be mistaken, but I thought if they were Real Recaro VW seats the mounting brackets bolted on if they were power or manual? There were lots of other sport seats made by VW that people would mistake for Recaro (kind of like people calling E30 Sport seats "Recaro"). I'm not sure why Recaro would make a separate seat frame for the manual Recaro's, seems like extra work on their part, makes more sense to make the seats the same and just use different brackets. (But auto manufacturers don't always do things that make sense😉) Also the Power Recaro's are only power for the seat height. I would ask for a pic of the bottom, if there are the 4 or 6 bolts on attaching the brackets to the seat you are good to go. If not, then I stand corrected. And yes. they will mount into a 320 as well.
  9. If they are from an early 90's GTI or GLI (1990-1992), they are a true recaro seat, and are in a full gray cloth. If they are from an 1988-1989 GTI or GLI they should be the Recaro Trophy seats (also a true recaro) but have the black vinyl bolsters and back with a gray cloth insert. Either seat is comfortable and will fit in a 2002 if you have the Recaro Adapters. I have a pair of the Recaro Trophy's, I have had them for 11 years or so, and put them in a few different cars. I recently recovered the centers in a plaid cloth and installed them in my 2002 using the brackets from Massivebrakes.com (Blunttech may have some of these brackets available as well). Pics of my seats below. Good luck with the seats.
