Well, I've had mine for a year and a half now and I rescued it from the scrap heap it was heading towards. I looked at a few Mk1 GTIs and even some Mk2s, but this was the one that 'spoke to me'. It was basically saying "Save me".  8)

It's an August 1982 1800 GTI - So big bumper big light combo. Sold originally in the UK and imported to NZ in '84, I'm the 3rd owner.   
Factory Schwarz black with black and grey interior.

Currently sporting some 'temporary' flat black paint and other notable mods include:
- Becker stereo
- H&R Cup suspension (Febi-Bilstein top mounts up front)
- Stainless exhaust
- Custom lower front X brace, built by 80 Vert
- 'Missing Link' weighted short shifter
- '80s aftermarket sunroof
- Aftermarket Pirelli P Slots with Pirelli P7s.

Plans are to keep driving it lots and slowly restoring back to period original, doing as much as possible myself.

I've had this for a couple of years, 1983 NZ new, 110k
Before this I had a UK import mars red GTI cab for about 7 years.
It's got some Nuespeed and GTi Engineering bits on it but is other wise standard.

Not sure about long term plans, Thinking about some 15" ATS cups and dropping it a bit.

Maddie, 83 gti 1800, 5 speed. Diamond Copper Brown Metallic (LP8Y), apparently a uber rare color. NZ seemed to get gold, silver and bronze cars around this time, as a few bronze mk1 convertibles around.

Got her from filx a while back, before that ex Gannaway Mk1 hoard. Always amazed at how well she drives, the cars must have been a revelation in the early 80s. Just hit 190k. Running pretty stock, bar spax lowering springs (only about 30mm), and 15 inch corrado steeles. Have fixed the mfa, new genuine headlights, oil cooler, valve guides, and had the drivers bolster repaired.

Plans....considering puttin on the zender 3 piece spoiler, but means drilling holes...

BB's old Mk1. I bought it about a year ago. Spent a bit on it but mostly on rust repair. As most of you will know, it's got an ABF and running Vmaxx coilovers. I've done mintex pads better fluid and stainless braided lines. Oh and a duckbill and 15x7 "no name" wheels. Next on the list is probably a couple of race seats and quick release boss kit (just because I can lol) OR panel and paint and berg cup arches maybe.
99 S3 Imola Yellow, Yellowspeed coilovers, Rotiforms. Loud and low.
'80 Mk1 GTi resto mod project.
