    Mk2 GTI 16v

    Something I've had for a couple of years but it's nearly finished
    It was bought like this and came with lots of spares




    It's now repainted and doors and bonnet will be painted tomorrow so I can finally finish it off
    Will put some more words and pics in later

    That looks good. Is all of the '90 spec trim going back on?
    I've had a few late MK2s and the current owner of the one car I owned 6/7 years ago, and regret ever selling, has has been in contact to tell me it's now up for sale. Unfortunately I'm not in a position to buy it back, unless I sell the Caddy...

    Those wheels look like they're taking up valuable space in your living room. I'll do you a favour and take them off your hands

    I sold two sets and got my money back over the purchase price, also came with another set of recaros,BBS steering wheel + the BBS on it, roll cage, new front lights, fogs, rear lights etc etc

    Trim is being restored back to how it was, I'll get some pics up

    painted inside and out and seats slashed but not real heavy damage like smashed windows or dented panels - that's got angry woman written all over it

    The previous owner died of a illness and his mum done this to the car! It was then moved to a place near me where I knocked and asked if it was for sale! About a year later the guy came and see me and asked if I was still interested and I obvioulsy said yes!
    The fuel pump had seized and I finally got it running after 4 new pumps and 4 new injectors! I think she may have put sugar in the tank to!

    I sold two sets of the RM's and kept the set of RS's to go on once it's finished, also came with a set of refurbished RA's and I sold the RM's that were on the car itself.
    So had 5 sets off BBS wheels included in the sale!
    Sorry if you wanted a set
