Balls, forgot that thread even existed! Sorry Alan. I guess if this one is dedicated to mechanical differences then it wont step on the others toes too much.

Its cool I wasnt saying it was stepping on toes, its free info, I just wondered if youd remembered it or not, you could re do it if you want and merge with this. Though I think its something that would be better as a PDF and not a thread as it would be easier to search that way
 
P1 and P2 GTi suspension differs as follows:

Front: P1 has a lower spring seat than P2
Rear: P1 has a larger diameter spring than p2.

Thus you can swap whole struts over from P1 to P2 and vice versa, you can't just swap shock or springs.

The rear strut brace does notactually bolt to the strut tops, but to the turrets above them.
