Alright folks!

I couldnt believe my luck when I stumbled across this wee beauty the other day! Went to look at it yesterday morning and being honest, I wasnt expecting much due to his asking price...

But my god, its in great shape for a 1997!

The car was imported back in 2007/8 and owned by a mature lady here until its next owner bought it for his wife.

Its totally original 1997 6n 16v with low miles and a fully stamped service book. Its also NCT'd.

All electrics work as they should, also has a sunroof!

As for the plans, where do I start! Coilovers are a must, along with wheels down the line! Stubtle mods like 6n2 rears, stubby aerial, clear indicator lenses, badgeless grill (added) to name but a few. If I decide to keep, I'll get the front bumper smoothed with top grills and 6n2 gti splitter.

Also, thanks to brian_ie for driving it back for me!!

Anywho, time for a few pictures

You Jammy bastard! That's seriously clean. Best of luck with it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Edit: That's bloody cheap! Did you pay asking? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif) And that mileage (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif) Wow!
