    It was imported here in the early-mid 90s. I reckon it had two owners in the UK. It's had two previous owners in Australia, so I'm the fifth owner I guess. It had its 30th birthday in March, but the car was in a workshop waiting for a new distributor, so that was a bit of downer, haha.

    Some interior pics below, taken after we gave it a bit of a clean up. Probably should have vacuumed first though. It's a bit tatty in places, but overall in very good condition considering its age. I think the seats must have changed because as far as I can tell it was tartan seats only for GTIs until the MY81 update a few months after my car was built.

    The steering wheel is not original, it should be a three spoke "Wolfsburg" wheel. I have one, but the horn push is busted so its just a matter of trying to find some parts or a new wheel to get the look more authentic.

    Yes. The black badge was an original feature of Mk1 & Mk2 GTIs.

    You want to swap the clock for a voltmeter? I've got one here if you do.

    Looks good Liam, would be hard to find one at all let alone one that's been well looked after. A lot of history there, awesome seeing the Golfs evolve!

    The car has spent about half its life in the UK and every year they have to have an MOT inspection. I have all the certificates except the first two. My guess is that this was the first owner and the second owner was the anal one who collected all the paperwork. He was the guy the brought the car to Australia and sold it pretty much as soon as he got here. The next owner had it for 10-12 year and I understand the majority of those saw the car sitting in a shed. Loon from VWW was the next owner and he "restored" the car to a degree. There's a lot of little bugs to iron out to get it truly concourse.

    Not yet, haha. As a rule I drive it once or twice a week and I think I've only put 2-3 tanks of fuel into it. Haven't had a service or oil change yet.
