mk4s are known for having shonky ignition switches. car will appear to have same syptoms as a flat battery. sometime it will fire first time, other times the starter wont turn over at all

dunno cos your car is a 6n commonly known over here as a mk4, whereas everywhere else calls them a mk3! try asking in the mk4 section!

stick to polo engines golf and ibiza gti engines wont fit without major work and very deep pockets.
consider using a polo 16v engine instead, much less hassle

vw estoril alloy wheels

15"x 6j et38 pretty good nick for their age, all caps present, fitted with federal 165/50 tyres, two half worn and two have a few mm more on them, so have loads of life left in them. repainted them last year and polished the outer edge. http://i137.photobucket.com/albums/q233/g40jon/DSC00118-1.jpg h...

for 14s up to 6.5 j 165/55s look the dogs. fit the rim perfectly and have a nice low profile. anything wider then 185/50 or 195/45s are the only way to go.
185/55s have a tendancy to scrub on lowered mk3s

why not! it wont hurt. in fact it should work well with the one litre engine, as it will suite its short stroke high revving nature. no point in polishing and porting the head, just buy a 1.3 head, it will have bigger ports as std. for other tuning ideas go have a look at what old skool mini owners ...
