I think he's aiming for the tallest final drive as he's planing to do a lot of highway drives.
What is cruising speed with 3.78:1?

Oh and thanks for all the offers guys I'll sure let you know what he decides
The truth is under the bonnet! :)

Later GTI & GL diffs, at first glance they look the same but the GTI has much stronger planet gears.
I did have a build diary on here (the Story So Far) showing the complete gearbox rebuild where I fitted the GL gears into the GTI box etc... For some reason the whole thread got deleted
