I may be selling if anyone is interested as I might be going for something with a bit more umph! I have a book of receipts that show about £8,000 being spent on the car by the previous owner since 2003. I just put a new clutch on it and its not yet registered. It has a full service history and is a amazing condition. The last guy loved it so much that he insisted on keeping the rear number plate as a momento!

Here are a few pics..

Nice clean Golf - only thing I don't really like is the single headlamp grille and silver VW badge.

Like the Harry Chapin song im a 'red roses are red and green leaves are green' type that prefer's a GTI to have a GTI badge on the grille and its twinheadlamps.


The grill has to have its red border too - to me that's the coolest feature on the GTI

To be honest, I think I'd agree with you there. I've been considering getting that grill and may do if I don't sell it.

Have to say I agree with AG in that if the car was mine I would be inclined to return it to something approacing standard condition. The main thing is I'm not convinced about the cl grille/big bumper combo, although I love cl grilles on small bumper cars. But that's just my personal taste and the car looks well as it is and is obviously a very clean example. That is a very nice colour on a mk2, think 8valvers mk2 might be that colour as well.

Why are you considering selling it? I thought you were very happy since you traded 'down' to a cheaper car with no repayments etc

Yeah, totally am. Just thought I may be able to get something for a few more quid. VR6 conversion or something along those lines. Not sure yet.

A nice big set of splits on that and it would look sweet

Lovely colour
