1990 mk2 8v GTi needs a new home
« on: 09 May 2021, 10:18 »
Hi everyone,

I have a much loved, though recently neglected 8v GTi that I need to find a new home. I've had it for just over ten years. It was regularly serviced and had the bit replaced as they came along. This has included 75% of the rubber hoses, sparks, battery, ignition coil, distributor, starter motor, fuel pump, breather etc. It has a K&H Air intake, BBS RA wheels, a cat1 alarm with two fobs and two sets of keys. I have replaced the roof lining, but the replacement has now started to sag too. I do have replacement fabric and spray glue, but haven't got round to that project yet. It also has a decent stereo with 9x6 (i think) in a false parcel shelf, usb/bluetooth etc.

When I bought the car in around 2010, it had just had an engine refurb and respray. It currently does need a little TLC but would make a good runner again or an unbelievable source of parts - but I would prefer it to go to a good home as a runner again.

Unfortunately, a combination of poor health, pandemic reduncancy and a divorce means that at the moment I no longer have the time or money to devote to the old girl. Shas been sitting in her parking spot for just over a year now. I would like her to go to a loving home. Today!

Unfortunately not. I had to do something that I hated and scrap it. It was a running car - OEM with a respray and an engine rebuild. Absolutely gutted that I couldnt find it a good home.

Some one some where has the car it is sorned and mot'd until 22nd June next year.

I would have given you a fair price for the car if noticed the thread sooner.
No use kicking a man when he is down and taking his car for free.

Ah well hope your luck and life is doing you some good now fella.
