Exterior Features
The Golf is finished in Aston Martin “Tungsten” , the condition of the paint work is great all around the car. There are no rust issues and the overall body is superb. The bodyshell and doors were given a full dismantle and respray in Aston Martin Tungsten by classicandcustomworks. Being an early example, this model features the smaller bumpers with red stripe detailing, body arches and the black VW badge set into the twin headlight grille
Wheels & Tyres
The BBS alloy wheels finish off the retro look of the early 80's Volkswagen shod with Yokahama 185/55 R15 Tyres. These wheels were the iconic optional extra for Golf GTIs back in 1987.
Interior Components
The Front and Rear Seats have been re-upholstered in Bridge of Weir Inglestone Butterscotch leather with the doors retried in the same leather. New carpet, soundproofing and headlining has also been fitted.There is a mechanically operated sun roof in good condition and the car has an immobiliser system fitted for security. Centre cassette console fitted with all trim details in place including the Golf-styled gear lever knob.
Mechanics
The car is fitted with a TSR Engineering Brands Hatch 2.0L 8V GTI Engine giving 138 BHP on rolling road test. The engine is responsive and reliable standing the test of time, still running as well today as it would have in the 80's. To improve parking and low-speed handling Mk2mania Easysteer electric power steering has been fitted by Leon Birchall – adjustable and makes a real difference for an every day fun runabout. To improve handling the suspension has been stiffened and lowered by 40mm with KW Engineering suspension dampers, springs and an engine bay strut brace have been fitted. A Stainless Steel Exhaust has also been fitted.
There is supporting documentation from 2008 to the present for all servicing, upgrades and refurbishment, including MOT certificates. The vehicle is HPI clear.
Drive & Comfort
This Golf is a shining example of the Golf Mk2 and drives superbly well. The handling is great and suspension feels comfortable on the road with all components working brilliantly. Economical and responsive, this is a great example of 80's German engineering.



Blaupunkt Original Stereo is fitted (non working) with connection for personal sound systems to an integrated Amplifier/ Speaker System in the boot and front drivers/passengers doors. (Pioneer stereo and hands-free comes with the vehicle but no longer fitted – spoiled the look!). The original OEM roof bars are included with the car if required plus some replacement spare trim parts ( GTI Radiator Grille, Rear Light Cluster & Mud Flaps)
