New Mk8
« on: 30 March 2024, 11:45 »
Hi All

Just joined as I got myself a new Mk 8 recently.

Had a Mk1 and Mk 2 back in the day and a nice Mk5 GTD.

The Mk 8 has a similar feel to my Mk2 and I am loving it!

Welcome Sol  :smiley:
I had mk1 and mk2 Golfs back in the day too, and mk5’s (and all the rest!) and there’s a definite familiarity that runs down the lineage.

Welcome.
My favourite car ever was my 3 door Mk2 16v 1991. I bought it when it was 1 year old with 8k miles. I sold it way too soon. Cry.

I never got on with the 16v, much preferred the 8v.
The 1991 specs were fab though. My 1991 GTI is the only car I had massive regret selling.
