2001 Black GTI 87k

Recommended Posts

I'm Selling my GTi as I have bought another one, Going to advertise it elsewhere but for now I'm just putting it up on here.

I've owned the car for three years and in that time I have had the cambelt/waterpump done, two new window regulators, a new handbrake cable,and replaced the spoiler brake light. This year it's had all new brake discs and pads, and two new balljoints, new track rods and wishbones which are polybushed.

The car has a Janspeed catback exhaust which has the twin pipes so still looks OEM and AP coilovers but it's not lowered massively or anything and I still have all the original suspension which you can have with the car. I also have all the rear wiper stuff which will be included incase you want to put it all back.  Other than that it is standard.

The car has a full service history, done roughly every 7 thousand miles and there's loads of receipts for thing's that have been done over the life of the car. It will also have a full year's MOT that I am getting done tomorrow. Current mileage is 86954 but that will increase slightly as I am still using the car for now.

Obviously for a 16 year old car the paintwork isn't flawless but when its cleaned and polished it looks very nice! The EPC light is on for an implausible brake light signal, I have replaced the brake switch with a genuine VW one and all the brake light's function properly, not sure if it's just a case of resetting the light but there are no issue's with this at all and it's never really bothered me. The starter motor occasionally does the VW squeak but again that's never really bothered me much either!

Only have a few pics for now, I will get a few more when it's daylight.

Price I'm after is around £3500 though I'm willing to listen to offers, and i'm based in Manchester.

DM me for any more info, cheers.

Just adding to this to say the car now has a full year's MOT after getting a CV boot replaced. And if anyone offers £3500 you can have the standard alloys and the BBS 764's which are the rare 16" version of these BBS wheels.

Just a quick bump to say if anybody wants to take this off me this weekend. They can have it for 3 grand!

Bit late to the party but I wished I'd joined the forum sooner as this one would have been perfect for me.

How did you find the 5 speed one compared to the new one you have now? I assume it must be 6 speed?

Honestly there's pretty much no difference, apart from I much preferred the clutch in the 5 speed but I doubt that is specific to every GTI. I think the whole 6 speed thing is for brownie points more than anything!

6 speed is quicker and the quicker you go the bigger the gap

Laps of the Nurburgring and Brands Hatch

Nurburgring in a lupo... that i'd like to see a video of. Short wheel bases and track don't go well together. I bet that turned a few heads! Awesome.

Thanks - though given these cars aren't the last word in speed it's sort of here nor there for me which gets to 60 quicker.

I was more angling for feedback for feel and engagement so the clutch comment made by the OP is probably more interesting to me.

Are the 16" BBS rims for sale or did they go with the car? Thanks 

I do still have them actually. They won't have tyres though
