Looks like a really nice find mate, oak green with small bumpers you don't see many of them about so be sure to keep it that way.

Wouldn't be any harm dropping it a few mm :wink: haha

A nice find.

If you need a rainbow driver's seat I still have this.....

Thanks to Jezza for supplying the seat I can now sign off the interior as fully restored, this forum has been superb, I have fixed the glove box, sorted the gear linkage, fixed the on-board computer, changed a seat, wired a stereo, replaced all the old crappy rubber on the doors, fixed the window regulator, fibre glassed the rear of the door cards and installed a water tight membrane, replaced Reverse light switch, vacuum seal repair (what a difference that made), windscreen washer replacement, replaced the faulty Clifford alarm dash control, fixed the central locking all of which I did with posts and advice and mainly photos from this forum.





















Now I can concentrate on the outside thanks for everyone's support!

It's been nearly 4 years but I'm still rocking the MK2 GTi.

Looks fantastic. Pretty rare to find one with just one owner!

yes pretty rare, I've had mine since new 1987, stored for 18 years in my garage with 80,000 miles.

need to get my finger out and get her back on the road   :smiley:

ps the oak green is lovely,  classic,  and also the small bumpers.
