So I been looking at cars again, yes I keep on talking about getting a new car and here's another potential car I could get.

Well in this case not so new.

Found a black gold GTi Mk2 1991 1.8 16v. 110,000 miles and surface rust on the rear quarter panel (where's the rear quarter panel?)

£1250

What do you guys think?

I got an insurance quote of approx £1000 but a couple of things are playing my mind... Although I love Mk 2 golfs, I cant ignore the fact that it's now a 16yr old car and it's done 110k. What should I be expecting if I do decide to go for it? Will I have to fork out shed loads to make it driveable?

Any advice would help! Cheers Guys

Richie

my mate sold his with 120k it was a 8v not a 16v (8v more torquey, so personally would have a 8v) for £350.....I'd have a look around :)

there easy to maintain yourself!!

I had a couple of mk2 golf gti's, some of things to look out for:

Hand brake failing/not working
Rust on bottom of doors and corners of tailgate
Shiny/worn steering wheel and torn front seats equals high mileage
Check 2nd Gear, that it can be selected easily.
Check the electric windows.
Ideally buy with FSH/Old MOT's to guarantee mileage.
Get an HPI check, lots were stolen etc.

Cracking Cars, hope u find a nice one:)

I have one and I doubt I would use it as a daily driver. Having driven modern cars its a bit rickety !

Its reliable now but done a whole shed load of work to get it that way.

Things to look out for are -

Head Gasket
Check for smoke from the engine
Tailgate / fuel filler rust

Plus all of the thing mentioned previously

Here is a link to my garage to wet your appetite or put you off !
