1990 1.6 CL AUTO 65k mileage £4,250

It's only done 65,000 miles!

Power Steering, Central Locking including fuel cap, Factory Sunroof, Matching Michelin Tyres. In the 4 years I've owned it, it has been utterly reliable, never let me down. I've been through the car mechanically (my 4th Mk2 Golf) and it's A1. Heater Works as does the blower fan. New wheel bearings in the rear, those are the only things that came up on the last MOT as an advisory. New radiator, water system is now A1, no leaks. Doesn't burn oil, I check the dipstick on occasion but the level never moves. This is due to its early life, it was only driven 1000 per year for the first 20 years, so the engine was perfectly run in. I have all the MOTs from new to prove this. Have a folder of all receipts too. The first owner also put the tyre spec sticker in the boot so you know it's always had Michelins. Dent Wizard came out and went over it when I bought it, it's not perfect and has a few dings, but from a distance you wouldn't notice. Could do with a clay going over it and a wax, not really my thing - prefer the mechanical side. Pierburg 2E2 has been refurbished during my ownership by Coln Engineering. Options sticker is still in the boot. Grey interior is perfect, much nicer than the blue interiors in my opinion. Oh, I took the cloth off the headliner as it was sagging. I'd probably Raptor spray the headliner now if I was keeping it. Easy job to remove the headliner, takes about 40 minutes. Bought one of those FISCHER Centre Console Cassette Tape Holders as it still had its original stereo/ tape player. It's been a very cheap car to run, parts are very reasonably priced from VW Heritage. Always garaged. It receives very positive attention, so be prepared to answer questions about it.
