For sale due to a change in my circumstances. Unfortunately I'm having to part with my 1997 P reg 3dr Mk3 Golf 8v GTI with
only 88691 Satin Silver metalic Pearl standard factory colour. LB7Z.
The last 3 owners of this vehicle were VW enthusiasts, and previously before them 4 from the same family.

Reclining height adjustable Black Recaro sports interior.

Kenwood faceoff, Bluetooth, hands free telephone preparation headset.
Golf Anniversary Red seat belts, front and rear.
Perfect uncut rear parcel shelf.
Rare and expensive wooden Momo steering wheel with Momo boss not everyones taste but can easily be changed over.

New BOSCH battery
Recently serviced with Fuchs oil, Bosch oil filter, Bosch Distributor cap, Delphi coilpack, plugs and ignition leads.
New rear axle bushes, with Epytec axle plates, New brake pads, and discs.
Cv boot, tie rod end, ABS sensor.
The car was in very good condition, prior to my purchase, no major rust accident damage, or dents.
However in the last 3 years the Golf has had a professional glass out respray from a reputable classic car bodyshop in the Midlands. No expense spared, costing close to 4. 5k this includes paint and preparation, stone guard protection underneath to front and rear arches which are painted body colour. Many new parts fitted during respray including new lower side sill trims, clips, and seals, front spoiler, with receipts.
The 2L 8v injection Golf drives really well, starts first time, pulls good in all gears, the clutch and gearbox feel nice, mechanically the car is very good. Up to you if you if you fancy an engine swap to something quicker, again options of ABF 16v, 20v turbo or R32 can be achieved.
Obviously with the bodywork close to showroom condition it is a wonderful looking GTI, probably one of the better examples on the market currently.
I may have forgotten some items, but feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Private plate not included.
