Hi, some of you mite remember my frevious black mk3 Golf (Black, Cheap & Simple) project on here
Loved it but a lack of power and no spec made me think of selling this car, went to some young fella from Sligo so i mite see it someday

Then i decided to get something more powerfull so either mk2 GTI or mk4 GTI was on the list of interest. I always wanted mk2 Gti, since years i was looking for a right car, mk4 Gti was more sinsible option, newer car better spec etc.
I was looking loooooooong time and i found this only 10 miles from Sligo, was advertised 98 days before i found it and first idea was that this car is gone long time ago, next morning i rang to the seller and suprise, car is still there


Its a mk3 Golf GL 1.8 ADZ (90 bhp), UK import with a nice list of spec:
- 4 electric windows
- electric mirrors
- electric sunroof (in perfect working order)
- velour interior in superb condition
- back head rests
- adjustible steering rack
- factory fitted side skirts (not a mark on them)
- colour coded mirrors, mouldings
- factory fitted 8 speakers

Just had an NCT today, no problems at all with a car and the guy at the station complemented Golf by saying: Nice clean Golf you have!

Looks like its a good base for modification

Where did you get the wide G60s?

Looking forward to it

The plan is to do a good service first and finish cleaning the car my way

Then coilovers of course and wheels, got some ideas already but first need to find a good wheel in need of refurb so i have something to do over winter.
Still have some bits left after the black Golf like hella silver tail lights etc. , also want to have a heated sits in this car so need to look for parts, many ideas in my head so fingers crossed hope it will be sorted
