MK3 Golf GTI 8v - Dragon Green
« on: July 05, 2016, 09:44:36 pm »
Hi, might not get any interest on here for this but might as well post :)
 
Up for sale is my MK3 Golf GTI 8v, due to me buying another car I have no space to keep this.
 
Make: VW
Model: Golf GTI 8v
Colour: Dragon Green
Year: 1997 (P reg)
Engine: 2L 8v Petrol
Transmission: Manual
Milage: 94k (will rise as still using it daily)
MOT: September 2016 (3 months left)
Location: Leeds, West Yorkshire
---
Details of basic spec:
 
- 2L 8v 5 speed manual
- Electric Windows (rears go down but not up, replaced mechs)
- Central locking and dealership fitted alarm,immobiliser
- Electric sunroof (works and no leaks!)
- ABS
- Foglights
- Two keys and fobs.
- Heater works great cold and hot on all speeds
 
I got the car on 78k miles and this is the stuff I've done in the past 2 years of my ownership
 
- Cambelt & tensioner done around 91k miles (original cambelt done 68k miles but did it for peice of mind)
- Both front wheels bearings & ball joints
- Both inner and outer CV boots
- New reconditioned gearbox (reverse is a bit noisy but works fine)
- New clutch & cable
- Both front wings sprayed in Dragon green
- Genuine sills fitted both sides to a very high level (proper cut and weld job  & all sealed up)
- Boot and bonnet have been resprayed
- New windscreen 2 months ago (green/blue top tint visor)
- New front grooved/drilled discs with new pads (I have the rears but haven't got around to fitting them)
- Serviced by myself (oil, coolant, air filter etc)
- New PAS belt
 
Mods I have done:
 
- FK AK Street Coilovers all around (new top mounts/bearings when fitted, not seized)
- Arches have been rolled cleanly (when i got the front wings I took all arch trims off and cleaned rears also, trims are  bonded on now after bodywork sorted)
- 15" Banded steels powder coated silver  - pretty clean but some scruffs around rims (8.5J rear 7.5J front all straight)
- Practically new Kuhmo 175/55 fronts and 195/45 rears
- 350mm wood momo & boss (do have original wheel if wanted)
- Full Colour Concept Salsa Green interior, doorcards (this is in great condition, just usual wear to drivers bolster)
- Full exhaust system with 3" polished tailpipe, looks really nice and is same level of noise as original exhaust
- Amber indicators all around, dewipered rear, satin black grill
- Polo coupe gear knob, leather gaiter with green stitch
- CD fischer holder
- Car has some EGDE speakers in, not my style but they work ok with general radio, I have put in a VW Beta 2 radio
 
Car is a great runner, never let me down, drives really smooth. I tend to average between 37-40mpg daily.
 
As mentioned there has been some replacement panels and bodywork done but overall the car is very clean, doesn't have any rust bubbles but does have a few dings/scratches etc around the car + roof (worst been on drivers door which is pictured) . Saying this it is nearing 20 years old.
 
Underneath is solid, it has had a few patches welded on rear feet wells but it's a good standard and all the usual bungs have been properly sealed up and it's very solid. I have kept on top of keeping it clean.
 
Interior is a really nice place to be, the Recaros are very comfortable daily. Headlining is pretty clean too (small bit pulling away at front after I had windscreen fitted but i'm probably been picky)
 
I do have quite a few spares that will come with the car including, alternator, wing mirrors, original longbeach wheels with pretty new 195/45/15 tyre, new central locking pump, plus lots more.
 
I think based on it's condition but it's short MOT:
 
Price £1200

However I'm open to offers but recommend a viewing to see for yourself.
