If ever there was a perfect GTI that would be it clubsport. Maybe with the addition of (aftermarket) power steering.
No wonder you regret selling it.
Colour, spec, engine. Perfect.
I’m not one for rose tinted specs, and my own mk1 was a troublesome beast/money pit with an obstinate gear-change, but a BRM 152 Campaign is my idea of motoring nirvana.

And yes, the K-Jet made the car so peppy in responses which makes it a proper puppy dog missile with all that torque and the low gearing  :cool:

Prior to that a couple dozen other warmed over VWs
