Tezler - Tornado Red Volkswagen Golf GTI Mk4
« Reply #1 on: 04 February 2015, 23:03 »
After hours of trawling through the classifieds on Autotrader, Pistonheads, eBay and Gumtree, I found the car I have been looking for ever since I started looking at first cars and mk4's. It was exactly the spec I wanted it in. I found the advert on Gumtree and went to see it as soon as I could. The car was in Nottingham, so it was a 6 hour round trip but well and truly worth it although my dad drove it home, I still followed it back not being able to take the grin off my face the whole way home

The car : It has Full service history with only 2 owners ( the last owner had it for 10 years ).It's a 2003 Volkswagen Golf MKIV GTi 1.8 Turbo (AUQ - 6 speed gear box and 180 BHP) in 3 door, finished in Tornado red and had only 74,500 miles on the clock when I bought it, it now has 84,500 miles on it.

This is my fourth car and third GTI : 2003 Volkswagen Golf GTI mk4 1.8 Turbo (AUQ) in LY3D Tornado Red ( Current car )

This is how the car looked when I bought it back in August 2013.

It came with the following modifications:

Oettinger grill
Audi RS4 V1 reps
Pioneer 6X9's in the parcel shelf
Lowered springs (70/80mm?)
Factory tinted windows
