    First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

    Your car spec says 0. Can I suggest that you add your car spec to your signature as it will save users asking every time, if you know the engine code that will also be great? Oh you can't do this of a phone. Adding your car spec

    I am not sure what you are trying to do, do you want to fit a Golf 3 subframe into a Golf 2 or the front engine mount carrier? The picture below is a Golf 2 with a VR6 engine, Golf 3 subframe and Corrado VR6 engine mount carrier

    2003 Skoda Octavia VRS Estate. APR 98RON remap, APR R1 diverter valve, Jetex exhaust, K&N panel filter, 7.5x18 Alutec Monstr wheels with 225/40 18 Uniroyal Rainsport 3 tyres.
    2006 Polo GTI 1.8T, APR 95RON remap
    1988 Golf 2 GTI 16 valve, 2.2 with Weber Alpha injection
    1983 Golf 1 GTI 8 valve, 2 litre with Eurospec racing 42/36 head
    1972 1302LS auto 1641cc conversion

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    The Golf 3 subframe bolts straight into a Golf 2, make sure the front caged nuts are free (it is common to snap the old bolt off in these) and run a M12x1.5 tap through the front and rear threads to help prevent damaging them which is painfull to put right. The Golf 3 subframe has rear extension mounts and to make use of these I fit M10 captive nuts into the floor rails and use a thick M10 washer to take up the small gap but you could weld in a plate with an M10 nut. I have some pictures of this on my work PC.
