That's a bit rare. so not really a basic 1.8 8 valve :)

lock it. Put an alarm in it. Disable it. Track it. Remove the steering wheel. B'stards who take my cars...

It’s got a very 90s alarm, no battery, no seats at the moment

and it’s makes a funny noise at 1750 rpm 😀

That'll be the supercharger? Centre bearing maybe. Or a loose hose which is throbbing as the air pulses out of the exit port. Not sure you can get the seals anymore. It was tricky finding them a few years ago when i rebuilt one.

It’s the charger, it’s an addictive noise. It came with a twin light debadged grill, it now has a proper quad light back on. 

A full stainless exhaust

The typical sunroof leak which was the seal.

Factory BBS in need of a refurb. 

And it’s done 100 miles in the last ten years

Where did you find that?! You lucky thing and you probably only paid £100 for it...

My friend had it, and for years I was saying “sell me the golf” the reply was “I’m not selling the golf”

after about three years of this he asked if I was still interested...

£3000. We were sat going through all the paper work with a brew and it turned out he’d owned it since 1999. I’m the third owner. At this point I was only bothered with one with, whether it was a ‘he or she’. He said neither it’s just a car but before I drove off he tapped it on the roof and said “goodbye old girl”

and that’s the sad story of how I came to own the g60. It’s had all of the rear tub and new rear turrets welded too.
