That's a perfect candidate for a 1.8t swap!

If only it was as simple as a swap! 2.0l 16V maybe...

Hi Rambo

A bit late in the night to reply fully but will update soon. I own a 1990 MkII GTI 8v (Big Bumper) purchased in the UK full original UK spec..a bit new to the lingo, so bear with me. Dark metallic blue 5 door model. No changes ex factory EXCEPT had to replace factory installed alarm after Giltrap's stuffed up majorly (they cut the alarm wiring as they did not know how to disable; this was followed by not replacing the gear links properly after a clutch replacement, causing the gear to lock in second the day after I collected. NEVER use Giltrap's! Will post photos soon (once I take them lol). Now use two brilliant guys in Newmarket Auckland who used to race VW's and know the models inside out. More techno stuff to follow but not sure how much interest there is...Regards Michael

OK..my mechanic's address and details:
Morrow Auto Electrical & VW Service Ltd
15 Mahuru Street
Newmarket
Ph: (09) 520 6554

Dirk seems to work more on Audi's and Vic on VW although both are good. Been using them now for about 10 years. They know how to work on engines with their brains although they have diagnostic equipment of course. Mahuru Street is parallel to Broadway, just before the junction with Gt South Rd..

Here's our 1987 16V GTI.  Sold new in Auckland, but has spent most of its life in Wellington.  We've had it 6 years.  No mods from standard.  It's for sale if anyone's interested in a well run in original condition car with reasonably good history.

1986 5door Gti 8v. Original appart from sound system. 1400w amp with 330w 6'9s in the back Bose speakers in the front.
No warrant or rego (still got black plates). Condision isn't to bad. Bit of rust in one door and a couple of dents. Needs new paint, recondition exterior plastics, and interior trim is a bit ruff. Should be a bit healthier in a few months.

Well I completed the "initiation process".  My car ('87 Golf GTi 16V) was sold to me as NZ New but turned out to be a SA import, it was imported 1 year old with 13,000km on it.  I bought it sight unseen off trademe and had the seller met me at Auckland airport after 10 years oversaes.  The owners manual claims 103kw and it certainly feels like they all are still there after 188,000km, what are the differences between NZ New and a SA import car?  Also, the paint is a bit faded/oxidized, I bought a can of polyglaze cut and polish is this okay to use on my car?  Sorry if these are dumb questions, have only owned new cars for the last 5 years.  Thanks.

We had an SA MK2 GTI 8V  import, I know on that car certain parts are different to euro spec cars.

I knew a bloke who owned an SA MK2 GTI 16V, visually, they are painted black under the bumpers (small bumper model) and dont seem to have bee sting aerials which all euro spec MK2 16Vs do.
