WANTED - 3dr GTI or WHY

Postby eddypeck » Fri Sep 20, 2019 5:13 pm

So time to make this official and put it put there I think, it's been long enough.


Budget = £1500-2500(ish) maybe up to £3k for the right car.
Must be 3dr with a factory sunroof, GTI ideally but may consider nicely modified / GTI replica.

Really needs to have an MOT so it can be collected and driven home - no 'need a flat bed or trailer' projects please (although may consider an MOT failure if its local enough and cheap enough). I know it won't be mint for the money, but I've also been watching the market long enough to know what is available in that price band and I know they are out there - somewhere.

Not really that fussed either way about 8v or 16v happy to see what comes up. I would consider a working ABF or 9a conversion even in a non-GTi Shell. Not really interested in VR6 or 20vt but would probably be a basket case for my budget anyway.

Not too fussed about small bumper or large bumper, although slight preference to large for a change as I've had 3 small bumper.

I also don't want to travel to the ends of the earth, so thinking up to 70 miles outside of Bristol is reasonable.

If you've got a £4k car to sell but value the wheels at £1500... keep the wheels, I'll bring my own and lets talk £2500.
Strictly no Jettas - no offense to Jetta owners, just needs to be a hatchback don't think my dog would want to ride in the boot of a Jetta!


So there's the wish list - what have you got stashed away for me?

Glad to hear the time has come for you to get back in a mk2. Will be looking forward to see what you end up with.
Don't know of anything myself but like many of us spend far too much time on ebay etc looking at stuff. If I see anything interesting ill send you a link.
Good luck and enjoy the search mate

Having almost made up my mind I wanted a late spec car this time round I found myself messaging a guy about an early Jade Green 16v last night. Unfortunately I got no reply and the car was marked as sold this morning.

Bit disappointing, looked to be a good one for sensible money, with electric windows and dealer fit Air-con.

Oh well, the hunt continues.
