This car is pretty cool, though I don't know the condition of it now. Nice that it has airbags and Mk3 GTI Recaros.

Whats the Golf Oettinger? My guess is its a base model jap import with a Oettinger badge and maybe some wheels.

All easy/cheap jobs to sort? Mr Dent should be able to take the dent out of the c pillar.

It's riding on coilovers so it is firm, yes  :)

While this is a bit tired, in the right hands this is a great starting point for a great car.

This car has now been sold to a panel beater in Queenstown, good things to come I'm sure!
