    MK2 16v

    Thanks for the comments guys, yes the mainfold is a bit marmite but I quite like it as it finishes the car off nicely but can easily return to the normal finished one, the car is going back to its original orange front indicators soon but I do like the red mirrors so will keep them the way they are I think

    MK2 16v

    This is my original Mk2 Golf Gti 16v in Tornado Red, it’s one of the very last being a February registered in 1992 I’ve owned the car for 2 years and done a few hundred miles in it. I looked for months to find a 3 Door genuine 16v and I wanted one as original as possible with the correct engine and gearbox which hasn’t been messed with too much. I found this car and have to say after I am so impressed with the condition of it and it’s not far off mint condition for a 27-year-old car. It has electric windows and power steering as standard and even has the original head unit and Fischer Cassette box in the centre console and the rainbow interior and in excellent condition It is a used car and other than the bonnet and front wing being resprayed the bodywork is original Tornado red with an unbelievable 160,000 miles and some 8 owners who all must’ve cherished it, the top end of the engine was rebuilt at 158,000 and the gearbox around 120,000. The car runs really well with no oil consumption and everything working as it should. Trying to keep the car as original as possible it does have some uprated parts, coilover suspension, Milltek stainless exhaust, G60 brakes with red painted calipers and inlet manifold painted, mirrors and smoked front indicators everything else is as Wolfsburg intended. Other mods include painted mirrors, no rare wiper and smoked front (and side) indicators. I have all of the actual originals with the car as well, even an original exhaust! I’ve cleaned the car properly and polished and wax sealed it. It has the registration plate etched in each window as well which harks back to the early 1990’s! Future plans are quite big, I don’t want to ruin the OEM vibe with the car but I want it as good as it can be so I have decided to get the engine bay even more detailed and the gearbox cleaned and treated so it look as good as the block and a full underseal and powercoating of components. Hopefully attending a few shows this year and entering into concourse where I can Thanks for looking!

    Recently picked up a lovely MK7 GTD, so pictured it next to my MK2 16v, both the same colour, 22 years apart, both Tornado Red

    Mk2 16v - Tornado Red

    Bit of a thread update, attended GTI International over the weekend and entered concourse on the Saturday, didn’t win but was up against the amazing fully restored Rallye Golf next to me which also won Best of Show for Saturday. The car received 92 out of 100 on the judging, room for improvement but quite happy with that, anyway onto some pictures: Was very pleased with the MPG driving there and back as well!

    Mk2 16v - Tornado Red

    This is my original Mk2 Golf Gti 16v in Tornado Red, it’s one of the very last being a February registered 1992 I’ve owned the car a few months now and I love it too bits. I looked for months to find a 3 Door genuine 16v and I wanted one as original as possible with the correct engine and gearbox which hasn’t been messed with too much. I found this car and have to say after I am so impressed with the condition of it and it’s not far off mint condition for a 25-year-old car. It has electric windows and power steering as standard and even has the original head unit and Fischer Cassette box in the centre console and the rainbow interior and in excellent condition (steering wheel and gearknob have been replaced with OEM versions since the interior picture) It is a used car and other than the bonnet and front wing being resprayed the bodywork is original Tornado red with an unbelievable 160,000 miles and some 8 owners who all must’ve cherished it, the top end of the engine was rebuilt at 158,000 and the gearbox around 120,000. The car runs really well with no oil consumption and everything working as it should. Trying to keep the car as original as possible it does have some uprated parts, coilover suspension, Milltek stainless exhaust, G60 brakes with red painted calipars and inlet manifold painted, mirrors and smoked front indicators everything else is as Wolfsburg intended. I’ve cleaned the car properly and polished and wax sealed it. Future plans are limited, I don’t want to modify it further and ruin it so it’s just keep it nice and hopefully keep it forever as a bit of an investment as there aren’t too many around anymore, anyway some pictures, any comments welcome!
