    The latest project.1.8 driver auto very solid with just 86k on the clock.not much history but believe it is right Visa records go back to 2012 when it was at 56k.
    Another good indicator is interior isnt wrecked with no bolster wear.has a twin choke webber on.and I'm off soon to pick up a gti camshaft.then gti exhaust from
    Manifold.
    Should be a bit quicker then but tbh it's not exactly slow now.

    Thanks.was never a fan of the dotted interior.
    This check pattern I think is one of nicest patterns in a mk2.i would have had a set of green ultraviolet seats but in all honesty I was never gonna find a set been looking for ages so settled for these.at least there mint
    And that's more important.and it's kind of right for the car also being a driver.no sagging no bolster wear either amazing for 30 years old.this pic is drivers bolster looks like factory.happy days 20210115_151307.jpg

    Very nice I had my eye on an identical car for sale 3 years or so ago entirely stock. Not sure if its the same one. The most distinctive thing about that one in that listing was Kienzle head unit and Clarion speakers front and rear.

    Finite long time seeing you post.
    Hows the mk2 gti I know you had issues with
    With something (head or something)did you get to the bottom of it.
    This car was an ebay impulse buy dont really know why I bought it tbh.just a bit bored at the time I think.my missus wasnt to impressed when I turned up home in it.
    Had a strait to cherry bomb when I drove it from Dudley to kettering took a week for ears to return to normal.lol
    But sorted most of the bad stuff now had some unsavory mods that I've got rid of.
    Doubt it was the same one this certainly wasnt stock.think on the whole been pretty looked after most of its life.just been let go a bit in the last few years.think it's a car that's spent a lot of years around Nottingham area.

    Soon be mot time.has been a worthwhile
    Project during lockdown.think I will keep this one being low owners only 4 (not bad really)and showing just 86k on the miles.
    I beleive this to be fairly accurate I've no history lost by a previous owner.but vosas
    Records show it back to 56k in 2010.
    Very strait car and still has factory paint in the arches etc.had been abused a bit by someone with some additions that wernt for me.but a car worth restoring and I'm pleased with the end results.work done
    Minor welding(arch edges)gearbox service.engine service,new interior,
    Changed front end back to a golf from a jetta,bbs ra,s,full respray.35mm springs,
    Boge shocks.weber conversion.gti exhaust.may change cam to gti if I can sort one and also the manifold and downpipe not sure if these two mods will change it much?almost ready to hit the road in spring.
