1988 GTI 16v, 3dr, Tornado Red, just done 282,000k's.
Adjustable Konis at the front and Bilsteins on the rear are about the extent of modifications. My plans are to return to it's original glory but with a few extra enhancements. I'm already part way there with the Corrado steel wheels and factory exhaust, one day I'll get some crystal head lights and smoked tail lights. At some point I'll get the body freshened up and look at getting a bit more power out of the KR.

What it looked like when I bought it;

Sachs struts and Jamex springs
Passat hubs, calipers and discs
Clear tail lights & indicators
17" Advanti Mags
debadged grill
G60 arches

Plans:
at the moment im a student so I don't have any money to spend on mods and most of my income is spent on living and petrol etc... but once ive a finised and have real job I want to give the engine a top end rebuild or potenially replaced with a 16valve. Id like to fit extractors and a pod filter also
The gearbox also needs a bit of work too.

It has a few little dents and nics which I'd love to get sorted

New spot lights

1989 MKII 8V, damn near bog standard, a few electrical mods; iPod dock, homemade water temp gauge.

Almost all the same colour, small bumpers ( I prefer them ), creaky drivers seat.

It's about time I did some serious work on it. I think 2.0 16V, bigger brakes etc, etc...

I have a big bumpered Mk2 "GT" Golf, origially a RV engined auto from Japan and factory labelled as a "GT".
It has the GTI interior as standard, no sunroof but aircon.
Came with the 15" BBS alloys, quad headlight grille, and smoked rear taillight lenses.
It now sports a 2.0l 16v with K-motronic injection, 256mm front brake set up, rear discs, is lowered 40mm with Eibach springs, and of course has a 5 speed close ratio box.

My venerable old valver, enjoying country life being thrashed around the tight and twisties.

Plans: change out the current AON gearbox (8v) for a close ratio FD out of a MK1 / Scirocco.

To cage or not to cage? Still haven't made up my mind which car to transform into the hillclimber, this one, the MK1 or the Scirocco. All talk, no action, blame the farm / baby / wife / weather / building projects / life.

Great to be able to upload at last!

Yay, the shocks and springs have arrived from TM Tuning, and are on the car, so at last I can post some up to date pictures in here. Very happy with the lowering amount, and the car now goes round corners like a gocart.

Phil, that's a beautiful looking golf. Hi perve factor, that one, it's my favourite colour. The wife wants it! It's great that there's a few out there with the TM Tuning suspension to give tight wads like me the confidence to get some too one day. Now how about a snap of that other car of yours mentioned at the bottom of your posts ?

Thanks Hartster. I love my golf so much I have decided to sell the 911, as I want the garage space for the GTI. I want to replace the 911 with something like a S2 Coupe or similar that will serve as more of an every day car. Here a pic of the Porsche, it is also for sale on TM.

Post by: hartster on August 29, 2006, 08:56:59 pm
That's a highly desirable car, that Porsche. Oh well, I weighed up the options and ended up with a Citigolf instead ;)

I don't think I've ever heard someone say they've given up their Porsche for a Golf. It's like a Ferrari for a Fiat. Whatever, it's a hell of a reason.

Hi-i am new to the register(what a great site-impressed!).
I have just purchased a early 85 Mk2 GTI Golf (3 door ,NZ New-1st reg March 85).
Rescued the GTI before it went to a life of being in in a wreckers and ultimately sent to the crushers(owner just wanted to get rid of it).
Exterior colour is white(original paint in good condition) and has the original grey with red striped upholstery. Has the factory windback sunroof,Pirelli Wheels,1.8 8 valve engine,5 speed manual plus headlight washers etc...
All original-not modified.
Chassis #WVWZZZ19ZFW358909
Engine #EV055496

Slowly learning about these-does anyone know about my particular model?

Will post some pics soon..

Mike

looking good phil. have you got the extractors on the car as well? have u noticed a difference?
Title: Re: Mk2 Owners - Your cars please... (New)
Post by: phil on September 02, 2006, 06:39:41 pm
Yes, the extractors are in the car, and the rest of the exhaust has had an overhaul. A 2 inch pipe (same diameter as the Milltek extractors) with two resonators leading to a muffler with new 3" twin tip pipes. I had it without the muffler and a 3rd resonator for a few weeks, but I sounded like a boy racer, and replaced it with the muffler. It now has a better understated sound which is what I am after.

And yes there is a difference, not sure exactally how much, but it does seem quicker.

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

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.

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.

Post by: 89Golfer on December 28, 2006, 01:49:20 pm
sadly it was sold, the best golf on earth.. :

1.8 digifant, with performance chip.
13.25 km. per liter petrol!
2 x 12" subs, 6 x 9 (x2), 6"(x2) Amp, Cd head unit, all sony components.
15" mag wheels, thier name not known.
(I have not driven a Gti yet, but can you beat the economy?)


I justified my reasons for calling my digifant the best golf because
of its economy.   Well I just bought MK2VRT's Gti. see the thread below.
http://www.vask.org.nz/index.php/topic,4977.0.html (http://www.vask.org.nz/index.php/topic,4977.0.html)

I just used $166 traveling 1580 km.  Thats a long distance of
losts of uneconomical driving becuase of the busy traffic and
the season.  And I also spent the time chasing other commuters
who were in a bigger hurry than I was.  For you NI road users it cost
me $55 (36 litres) to Palmerston North (520km). 
Now is something wrong with my Golf or do the 16valvers just kick butt?
- do any of your Gti's return the same figures?

Yes, my SA car has the same steering wheel and the fuel economy is similar, especially if you put 98 in it.

Yes.  Its got the SABS "strengthened" sticker things in the corner of all the windows
and tire pressures also given in Afrikaans.  :) By the way whats the difference between
SA spec and NZ new spec?  (apart from the stickers).

Losts of little things I do believe, one thing I think could be different is that the SA 8V GTI has solid front discs.

Hi guys

I actually joined a few months ago but for some reason have had to re-join. This also means I've had to do catch-up with all the posts. I will upload photos this week, but for starters, mine is a 1990 MK2 8v GTI big-bumper, dark metallic blue 82kw engine..will post exact details next time with pics. Imported by me in 1994 from the UK and unchanged from factory spec.

I did post an address for Auckland service guys who I've found to be excellent. Noticing there are a few SA imports around it may be good to mention them as they are both from SA themselves, where they had their first business, so they know SA VW and Audi's well. They've been servicing my car very well and inexpensively for over 10 years :

VW Services LTD
Morrow Auto Electrical & VW Services
15 Mahuru Street
Newmarket (Auckland)
PH 520n 6554

Title: Re: Mk2 Owners - Your cars please...
Post by: Rado on April 18, 2007, 11:19:55 am
Yeah fresh Tornado Red (we made it quite deep red, lots of variations of this colour and I didn't want it to be too orangey).I left it in town one night and a drunk guy feel asleep at the wheel of his car and smacked in to the back so I thought "Oh well I think I had better just paint the whole thing now heh heh, get all the red matching an all!"
1989, but I don't think it was registered til '90 or '91 . I've had it for 6 years but it might have had a plate change before then I don't know.

Yeah full respray, had rear damage and since that was going to get repaired I got the rear panel vertical seams flushed off, and I never got around to sticking the 16v badge back on.  The VW symbol in the middle is the wrong one too, might have been off one of my Golfs originally, not sure...it just didn't quite fit (at first heh heh)

Yeh i still love it ;), i care more about how it goes than how  it looks tho, so i expect itl be a wile b4 i do anything to clean it up.
My dad brought it of my mates dad for $500. There were a few things wrong when we got it, was only going on 3cyl, water was full of oil (headgasket had been done), bit of rust in the door and panel, dereg.
But there wasnt much realy, was prety simple stuff to fix, but it just took a hell of a long time to get done(8 months).
I finaly got it re-registered & wof a cuple weeks ago.

Whats the story with yours, i bet you paid more for it than mine. :P 
Title: Re: Mk2 Owners - Your cars please...
Post by: Natesgti on May 01, 2007, 10:53:23 pm
Mines a 85 gti 8v, same as yours. Its in pretty sweet nick actually, the reds just fading as it does ( why is red always the first to fade?) but not peeling. The interiors pretty good, except for the usual drivers seat rip and its all original except for an automatic aerial and the button i put on the unused button row haha.. The engine is basically sweet, ive not done anything to it since ive bought it ( 2 months ago) It sometimes leaks a lil bit of water, but ive had it pressure tested and it holds pressure, im pretty sure it aint the head tho, cos the oil is good, and the water is good and it doesnt blow white smoke which is a bit frustrating... Might just get a new radiator and see whether that fixes it, ( brand new ones on trademe for 75 bux) It was my sisters car before me, thats why there is little scratches down the left hand side and a bump from where she drove into a hedge ( not too noticeable tho...) So far im up to 650 dollars out of 1800 paying my sister back, so yeah i suppose it is a bit more expensive. How much you spent on fixin it up? Show me a good pic of your car...
Title: Re: Mk2 Owners - Your cars please...
Post by: Otto Valvola on May 02, 2007, 05:42:06 pm
Ye yours looked pretty gud when i drove past it.
I think all up there would be more than $2G spent on it. Not including the stereo. Defenetly alot of money wasted at qualitat, even tho they did very little.
Ive never uploaded an image b4. but il try.

Did VW make RHD Golf G60s?

I don't think so, think the original ones are all LHD.

Piece of cake I'd say...I saw them all the time when I was working over there. All those E30 M3's that they get to drive ...unlike here with out draconian LTSA laws.

Yeah, well they sold LHD cars brand new in the UK, like Phil says, E30 M3s, Rallye Golfs to name two.

...and the first 160-odd Ur-qs (with quad headlights) imported into the UK were LHD, as originally there was not going to be a RHD version. That changed when the UK bought a lot more Ur-qs than expected.

How are you getting on with the LTSA?


im having trouble with ltsa regarding the front impact law it have to comply with does anybody know more about this if not i might have to sell her :'(
Title: Re: Mk2 Owners - Your cars please...
Post by: robh on May 11, 2007, 08:27:45 am
If it's a 1989/90 you'll have to wait until 2009/2010 before you can ship it to NZ.

All cars that are imported have to comply with frontal impact standard or be over 20 years old (from when it was first registered to the date it lands in NZ).

There are only 2 options I can think of that may work for you:

1.  Try and get it registered as a motorsport vehicle, you'd need a cage and all sorts of other safety gear and a motorsport license, etc.   Even then I don't think this lets you just drive it on the road whenever you feel like it.  May be an idea to find out exact requirements and limitations.
2.  Wait a little longer and see what rule changes happen later this year, the LTSA are looking into changing the rules for vehicles of special interest/collectables.  This may or may not happen and even if it does they may not class a G60 Golf as an exception to the normal rules.  If you scratch around on their website there is some informtion on this proposed change.

Nice Jetta Jake!

Looks like Coromandel or Kaipara?

Look out at pick a parts for a gt passat with leather it's pretty easy to fit them in a mk 2.
35 bucks a seat if you get in quick enough!
While your there you may as well grab a 16v 2l motor and slap that in! cheapest way to gain bhp.
Another Jetta owner on this forum (NASTNAS) has done this to his jetta.

Welcome.. ;D

That's a lovely looking car and the best colour ;)

Is it a G60 that was converted to RHD or a GTI that had a G60 motor conversion?

Also love the intercooler shrouding, where did that come from?  I assume your just pulling air from the front of the car and not through a bonnet scoop?

Sell it to me for $100 :)

Always liked the G60. Its not an original as they were only lefty's, I did the install in my GTI. Was easy conversion, plug n play really.

The TMIC is standard G60 for cars with A/C and turbo diesel. Air is pulled through from front. It does get hot if always on the boost.

You are in the same boat as me... I have everything except for the skinny side strips - and you have more chance of getting what you need cause there seem to be plenty of big bumper Jettas around and very few Big Bumper 3 door Golfs.

I might have to get some in from the UK maybe?

Here's my '88 8v Digifant CLi i bought toward the end of last year. Besides an aftermarket exhaust, alloys and stereo it's essentially stock so it's riding nice and high.

Have just bought myself a set of second hand 15" Advanti's (two of which are fitted with pretty much brand new 195/50 Goodyear Eagle F1's) so it's the first upgrade i've made asides from the stereo. Have only done this because one of the previous owners decided they'd go and put Mazda wheels on which have a 60.1mm centre bore  ???. Not sure if the previous owner is a VASK member but i guess we'll soon find out... Will post an updated version with the new wheels when i can.

Hi, new member here.
Thought i would post my Jetta, nothing special but i love it to bits apart form its little niggles. It is a 1991 South Africa CLI, 5 speed with leather interior.
At the moment I'm at a bit of a loss as my drivers side head light has broken and i cannot find a replacement anywhere. I've been told it was a rally model???? and that i can put in the standard headlights but will need new grill and mounting brackets? I've had a look in the for sale section but there doesn't seem to be anything in there.
Any input or help would be great. No Headlight = no wof  >:(
Thanks

Welcome to the forum.

Is the headlight cracked, a hole though it or is the reflector toast? If its just cracked, put some skins over them. These lights will make you bleed when you find out how much the cost. Aslos,believe it not it is meant to be the same unit that was used in the Ferrari F40.

if you go to Golf lights, make sure you keep hold of the old Rallye slam panel, grille and remaining headlight, they are extremely rare new or second hand.

Hello Everybody , new registered member here. Been looking at this forum for a long time and have been admiring members cars till now that i have got my own. I just picked a 1990 VW Mk2 Jetta yesterday. Love the car to bits , my first fwd car and  good on fuel compared to my Bmw e32. Its a 1.8 with an autobox (unfortunately), bloody good condition though. Bought from a an old couple in Otorohanga  (And i bet thats  the only reason none of the hundreds or so thats viewed it on trademe bothered).
  I don't quite know what model it is though , cli,glx,gl???? Its a 1.8 and its got a cat. Imported but the only other standard Jetta ive seen with leather interior other than another VASK members car. I love the bucket front-seats. The only  thing that bothers me is a lack of a lower front spoiler (the car was from a steep gradient farm for many years).

Awesome score!  It's dead easy to make that a manual.
Just wait for a mk2 manual to turn up at pick a part and milk the box and shifting bits out.
Some one here will have some stuff to help you out??

For your rubbing issues you need to roll the lips on your guards and trim the plastic back a little bit around the tops.
Some euro projects have the arches extended cut n weld.

Took it off to address some rust in the boot. Ground it back and rust treated it.... Maybe I should start a thread for this car.
Wasn't planning on making a start on it till Golf was sorted but couldn't help myself. The interior is mostly stripped and I'm getting rid of the back seat support. No need for a back seat...

Post by: dubstar on December 11, 2008, 04:09:00 pm
Don't need tint spray.  Just some standard black enamel and lightly dust.

The tint spray is really really thin and watery and goes everywhere.  It's also a lot more permanent then normal enamel so there's almost no going back if you stuff up.  I just did a few even and thin coats of black gloss enamel on my indicators.

Ok time to come clean, this has been the latest summer project to help me get over my BMW fetish, it's a car originally started by a Brendon Dixon so you'll all know it, I've been slowly finishing the work he started.

I'm just finished refitting all the trim with OEM screws, fixed the central locking etc and because I'm anal I've been swapping out any worn parts for newer items. I need to finish the final touches to my false boot floor and source and fit OEM stereo speakers and then find some early arches, so I don't need to refit the side trim.

Maybe I also need a debadged grille??  My only query now is can I hang on to it, as the wife's grandad is terminally ill and wants us to fly back to the UK in June/July to see him for the last time and this is currently spare $'s on the drive.

Cox is a Japanese VW tuner. It depends on what the owner ordered.

halcyontom's Golf has Cox bits on it. Wheels, suspension, exhaust. Its a digi with a 4+E gearbox.
A friend of mine had Cox strut braces on her Mk3 GTI 16V, all the rest of the car was standard apart from a Cox rear badge. . .

Hi! I'm from Whangarei, NZ but am living in UK. There are a lot of mk1&2's around here but they lack the classics :( Anyway here's a pic of my motor I got about two months ago, haven't done much, am currently rolling the s**t out of the arches to get my coilovers right down :)

PS Any faded bumpers out there? Give them a spray, peanut butter or use Linseed Oil, or even better I took those ideas and mashed them into one and it works wicked.

Buy some Peanut oil from the super for about a dollar, heat it up in a pot and wipe it on using a rag, watch out it will be hot.. I did this on my car about a week ago and they are still black as and shiny!!

Dunno bout NZ but Cups are whores over here, but if someone paints them its the whole lot without keeping the detail which imo totally wrecks them...

Must be on bags, that's the only pic I could find of it so might be a photoshop jobby. My dream is to get mine that low

interior isnt as tidy as it looks, and it has a few rattles etc, but not too bad for a 24 year old car :)

im either going to paint the P slots black, or find some BBS style wheels for it and lower it about 30mm. that should be about it for mods.... oh yeah and some ICE. cos the jap import stereo that was in the hole isnt connected.

1991 UK import Golf GTI, 8v

mods:
Sachs struts and Jamex springs
Passat hubs, calipers and discs
Clear tail lights & indicators
17" Advanti Mags
debadged grill
G60 arches
KnN panel filter

Plans:
at the moment im a student so I don't have any money to spend on mods and most of my income is spent on living and petrol etc... but once ive a finised and have real job I want to give the engine a top end rebuild or potenially replaced with a 16valve. Id like to fit extractors and a pod filter also
The gearbox also needs a bit of work too.

It has a few little dents and nics which I'd love to get sorted

New spot lights

It's on VR6 suspension but i'd say 40mm from the 16v it was before, which are slightly lower than a stock GTI

I got given a 4 door auto mk2 digi today. 163,000 kms and goes sweet. Regoed till 3/11 and wof till 2/11.
 Needed a cambelt and tensioner bearing. The bearing was seized! and it wasn't squealing or anything! I drove it home without knowing.
 All done now found a cambelt and a bearing in my stuff and shes a good runner.
 Need some weather strips for the doors?

I really rate those 1.8 KR motors.
 Choppy says I was just pulling away from him up the straight in my ABF but only just.
 The 1.8s probably have slightly lighter pistons or something?Its all about piston speed when there revving hard.

89  8v GTI  purchased aiwi
It had a burnt out digi ECU and has been pumping the motor full of gas.
Which rooted the starter motor and it seems the FPR has seized so it's flooding on start up.
Good old Al got it all sorted pretty quick.
So I drove it back to the shed and gave it some long overdue love!

171000 ish, was owned by the same family for approx 15 years prior to me.
It has been 100% reliable. Has a seriously high compression engine which has taken a little bit to run sweet with a bith od tweaking of the fuel ratios & the timing adjustment, it pulls really well with loads od torque.
As well as the upper strut brace it has a lower one also, I've manufactured a short shift linkage,  wheels, steering wheel, & seats and general maintainance.
It's my every day ride & part of the exclusive alpine white mk2 club 8) 8)

Yes I am a software developer. I have a digifant which means no OBD II port, so I am busy building a device to read the values directly from the sensors. I may look at converting it to Megasquirt as I will then have more flexibility. I am not an electronic engineer. It is just a hobby to work with electronics.

What are your plans?

This is my second Mk2 which i picked up two days ago. I now own two Mk2's, one for the North Island, one for the South  ;)

Stock 1989 CLi manual with 199kk on the clock. Fairly straight and tidy, just a handful niggles like dodgy wipers and lights. Engine, drivetrain and steering are solid. Plans include giving it a good tidy up, lowering it to around 16v height (not too low, i want to keep it chugging on dodgy gravel b-roads), 15" dub wheels, GTi trim, and possibly some sound deadening to make it just a little plush.

Post by: Poonmobile on May 23, 2011, 12:46:26 pm
First impressions would lead me to believe it is much quicker, off the mark and also better handling due to the reduction of weight. It feels like it should have always been in a mk2 body. In saying that it is much more raw and viceral, you can really hear and feel the engine and it just puts a massive smile on your face. I haven't had a good chance to ring it out, not being completely road legal and the fact I still have some fine tuning to do with suspension I don't want to do anything stupid just yet. If I can make the next track I'll be taking it down for a good blat.

This is my baby. Had her for a few weeks now and just sussed out an ECU thanks to BB.
Still have to suss out some wiring in the engine bay but should be going in a few days.
The only plans i have for it at the moment is to get it a bit lower and re do some of the tints :D
Is running a 2.0L 16valve engine.

Haha to be honest the wiring was a mess. Some of the joins were cellotaped together, and i actually mean cellotape not electrical tape haha, and there was a lot of cut wires that lead to no where, but i think i've sused them all out. But apart from that everything is good   :D
Just hoping the police around here don't pick on me because of the look of it, sick of police attention haha.

Oh sounds mint! I love the wide and low stance.
Well with the plans I've got for it i think it will pull a bit of piggy attention  >:D
I want to weld up some stainless steel Bozo pipes, lower it another few inches and lathe up some spacers so the rims sit out a bit more.
Going to give it a nice hellaflush stance, just need to start saving haha.

:/ I'm getting some spacers for the rears as they don't sit out far enough for my likings haha not going to bother with re-certing just for spacers either just take them off when I go for wof :P haha and hop cops don't pull me up

I saw this was for sale on TM ages ago but you obviously pulled it off? or did you buy this from the seller on TM?

:) Me, brookfromhamilton and Jason hunter on here have our lil VW group here in hamilton, we're all about the Low/wide/stance scene haha I take it your in auckland?
Title: Re: Mk2 Owners - Your cars please...
Post by: Brady on May 30, 2011, 10:37:33 pm
Haha cheers bro. Low loud and proud  >:D
Oh sick, i think this one already has spacers but they're pretty small, i want them BIG!
Yeah that's the way man, just take them off for warrants, certs are a waste of time and money.
I bought this like 3 weeks ago off a dude in Auckland, then bought it back on a trailer back here to Whangarei. I'm pretty keen to move to Hamilton aye, it's a pretty mint place and I heard the night life there is sick!

I got a nice shot of it sitting on the back of the trailer while i was bringing it back up. Looks pretty sick, we should organise a meet sometime. I'm pretty keen to head to raglan sometime this year for a surf so i could call in for a few days in hamilton.

This is the shot i got.

haha I agree certs are a freaking waste of time and money! but i needed my car as its my daily and don't have that much money to contribute to fines so I thought I might as well get it out of the way, Ah must be the same guy then? Hamilton's alright! haha theres about four of us young guys here with golfs all are mk2's though I'm the only mk3 in the group! aside from brooks daily which is a mk3 GTI but his mk2 is super sick LOW as f#@k with 8.5s all round and 165/60/13s stretched as f@#k lol (Also the Hamilton night life is pretty good, we get a lot of aucklanders commenting on it hahaha)

I'm keen to organise a meet, I've always wanted to see your car in the flesh! Raglan? oh yeah I'm from there wouldnt mind going back haha when you looking at coming down?

Looks good on that trailer! haha gunna keep it on those OG rims? or sort out another set?

Oh that sounds so sick, I can't wait to meet up with some of you guys and just go for thrash down the motorway. Especially in convoy that would be bad ass.
I haven't even started this car yet so i don't know what it even sounds like, does it have a nice sound? It should be going in a few days but i just wanna know before hand if it's going to sound mint haha.

Yeah man I'm the only young dude here with a Volkswagen, I'm only 17 haha. Yeah I've got the same style as you guys, just drop it low and wide haha

I'm planning for the end of the year sometime closer to summer, but i think i might just end up coming to hamilton for a bit and just party up a storm aye, and meet up with some Vask members.

Umm at the moment i'll be keeping them, but i've been on the look out for some new ones with some huge dish and a nice offset. But for now i'll be keeping them until i can afford to get some newer ones.

It sound from memory like all nice mk2 golfs should slightly discreet and able to blend in when needed with a viscious bark when pushed hard, sometimes with a bit of overrun poping as you change down negotiating corners

Oooo that sounds mint, are there any dates set or do they set them later in the year?
Hopefully i'll have those bozo pipes and new springs before then. I might try n make up some bozos this weekend since it's long weekend.
If i meet up with you guys in hamilton and went to raglan in convoy with you that'd be mint, get a chance to have a thrash on the motorways  >:D

Its usually in December, it was the 5th last year, so hopefully its around the same time this year lol If you keep track of the Auckland VW clubs website they should have the time and date on there, We all meet up at the greenwood Mc donalds in hamilton and then convoy out to raglan, then park up there and show our crap off lol

I want to see these boso pipes bro get em ON! haha

Haha yeah bro i'll let you know once I've made them up, I'll probably so it this weekend if my mate lets me steal some of his stainless steel piping. They should be bang'n, and hopefully they sound pretty sick aswell.
Sounds sick man, do they stay over night in raglan or just day trip it?

Hey Cheers,

I bought this golf ages ago as a standard spec non gti 8v been using it mainly as a daily

It now has a 9a 16v with a slightly worked head and kr cams
Gti mk2 box, with light flywheel

Heaps of other bits I have added or changed over the years, brakes, steering, cluster, interior, suspension etc (probably should have just bought a GTi to start with haha)

Still enjoying it :)

Drove it down to pit stop today to have the muffler connected to the down-pipe.

did you take the trim off and roll the crap out of the guards? I have done the same with my mk3, not sure on the best glue to stick them back on  ???
Title: Re: Mk2 Owners - Your cars please...
Post by: MK3SOME on October 26, 2011, 10:15:04 am
did you take the trim off and roll the s**t out of the guards? I have done the same with my mk3, not sure on the best glue to stick them back on  ???
i went quite hardcore on it.on the back i cut the quarter arch lip and trim lip off with a air hacksaw and used a slidehammer to pump them out as far as i could.then a hammer and grinder to tidy it up.the front i cut the lip off the trim but not the guard as it loses all its strength and becomes flimsy.just gave it the hammer treatment.if you cut the back lip off make sure to seal it up and spray cavity wax from the inside.iv also done this on my mk3.it gives you more room to play with as just rolling the lip up you lose at least 5-10mm of offset you could possibly have with spacing.
i used polyurethane adhesive sealer to stick the trims back on.
i dont know if you have seen either of them in the flesh but that's why my fitment looks like its rubbing.it actually duznt the rear guard arches
are just super thin probably 2-3mm max including the trim.on the jetta the rear arch fits between the rim and the tyre.so tyre choice
is critical also

Bought this 1984 GTI off a guy in christchurch last year, ex vask member, still standard except the coilovers, alot of time and effort went into this car to get it to this standard.
It was purchased unseen but was worth the risk!
Just needs winding down abit then abit more fore the stance off at the end of the month..
Want to keep the look the same but would like to do some engine work, any idea's on getting the best out of a k-jet engine???

Yep that's one nice Jetta Duncan! Glad you found all the bits you wanted. Agree that a small spacer at the back would make it even better.

Hey all, New to the whole Vw seen, But love them to the death! i have a red mk2 87 type 19 i think its called? not the gti unfortunately!

Plan on keeping her for a long time and was wondering what your thoughts would be on playing around with the engine, Worth it or not?
Goes hard, but looking for maybe some more power. buy a new engine ? or is it possible to maybe do something like a turbo ?

novice questions but let me know your thoughts.  Thanks

Marq.

They are there for economy. Roof racks can create up to 8% more fuel use due to drag. Fairing is supposed to lessen this effect.

Hey guys I'm pretty new here,

This is my 1986 Golf Gti 1.8 Kjet - Gun Metal Grey

Haven't done much to it at the moment as I am lacking some funds. So far I have put in some Yellow Speeds and installed some sound equipment.
I plan to get some wider, smaller wheels to get it sitting a lot nicer. Haven't planned on much else as I'd like to keep the car clean and OE.

Here are some before and after photos  8)

i rescued it off some old chap in ellerslie for 2k firm.
its was imported from the uk in 95 but has no rust in the usual spots.
overall its a minter was stoked to get it so cheap.runs real well.150ks.
just goin to run staggered bbs rs 17s.
i have some rs 16s but rs 17s i havnt seen on a oldskool dub here yet so would rather do something new.i have some 185/35/17s so the overall rolling circumfrence will be smaller than my 15" rs's
i ran on the jetta.should be rolling this wk.just got fresh wof and reg.polishing rims myself is all thats holding it back haha

Looking clean mate!
Second time since I gave it to him that he's cleaned it ;D ;D ;D,top job looking good well done for 17yr old with the vag bug.
The history of this car goes back around 10yrs I guess,my first golf ,picked it up with a blown clutch, 1 broken cv and a mystery overheating problem that surfaced as a blown headgasket .
Thought these cars sucked so I parked it up in my works carpark for 14 months and it sat,picked up a car trailer and drove it on with a sump full of mud :laugh: :laugh:.
The rest is history,I reckon this is one of  the best 4 door 89's around ,the best colour and really straight.

Elite in Christchurch do some really cool steelies think there called NASCAR D's probably be bit more expensive then just getting some factory ones widened...
But way to be different

Thinking of getting some for my Mk2. Thoughts?
I have read that the diamond racing pro series steels overseas are quite weak and these look to be quite similar, so would the steels from elite be okay for normal daily use?

ps how are you fitting intercooler? -remember to take pics 8)
Title: Re: Mk2 Owners - Your cars please...
Post by: mitch16td on October 17, 2012, 09:19:11 pm
I'm no mechanic but pretty all good, maybe 7/10 difficulty. Really gotta keep it clean. need a tacho though egt gauge and sound isn't enough to go off. Previous owner cleared out just behind the grill, slimline inter cooler fits well. mounting so it doesn't shake it crazy might be tricky but well cross that bridge when we get there haha

this is the walk through:
 
http://www.vwdiesel.net/forum/index.php?topic=24323.0

without the front mount egt's get high quick so the stock cork head gasket will need to replaced with metal if you haven't done that already.
definitely replace all the seals when you do the mod as well. seal kits come pretty cheap, 27$ or something.
few little basic things that i'm sure you'll pick up on that i'm pretty sure are covered in the walk through

this car's still my daily and have had no problems since the mod
power is overwhelming. great mod.

Yeah front coils are originally for an evo V but must have been modified. It has VW tophats. Read suspension is for a Jetta though. Rides really well plenty of travel considering how low it is

Ive managed to buy myself a mk 2 golf four door 1.8L 8V. Its very red and high. Its 180mm high which means a 4" drop is on the way. Ive made some custom extractors because the factory ones made me sick. Ive also customised the intake plenum for no apparent reason. I am a little sceptical about the mechanical injection though. Im trying to find some RH Cup wheels or anything 15x8 or 9, I dont want the offset police knocking on my door ether. I bought this golf with a hose clamp blocking the second port and the nut for the hose clamp in the first cylinder, not to much damage though. Watch this car in the next few months as I have a tig welder and a large imagination haha.

Sorry mate nice job but they wont fit,go straight down with an offset for the subframe 4 pipes into a connector and a 2 inch flexy connector ,mid resonator after decat and you will find 2-4kw if you do it right

M45 better for a 1.8 and they will fit with a/c delete ,don't turbo a 8v ,VW tried years ago and spent a huge amount money developing the G60 blower ,good system but not as reliable as the Eaton,this is an expensive mod having said that,

Gave the Jetta a good work out today on a day trip to Piha and Karekare to do a few small bush tramps and enjoy the sun with my girlfriend.

(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Aeun2TnSIH0/UMVzE6p34AI/AAAAAAAAANQ/_mlNMbJcp0A/s1024/P1180041.jpg)

The ABF went great up and down the hills! Pulls so well through all the gears. All new bushers makes a huge difference in handling and the bigger 256mm brembos make it stop! Still has that awesome Mk2 feel with the 020 but damn the ABF can rev  8) heaps of torque all through the rev rage too.

Used bugger all gas, think its better on gas then my old 8v! Temperature stayed perfect the whole time too. Really happy with the swap  ;D

Again another huge thank you to Choppy, Timmy, Jem, Anton and everyone of Vask for your help. Couldn't have done it with out you!

Got the golf back from the paint shop on friday and have spent the weekend putting it back together.... Still need to rivit the arches on, track down some door moulds and think about some new shoes. So good to be back in the old valver after 2 weeks of a Corrolla Ceres....although the aircon and auto in the traffic was very nice  :laugh:

What door mouldings are you after..

I think I have a full set of the chunkys
Title: Re: Mk2 Owners - Your cars please...
Post by: BCH on December 18, 2012, 03:02:31 pm
I'm ideally after the early style moulding with red stripe but its proving difficult to find. I probably should come take a look at how the chunky ones could work.

Hey y'all,
After a few hundred hours of labour, here's what we have. I'll do two postings, as the 200K limit is a bit tough.
I have a set of P-Slots that are queued up for a fix up-- quite liking the cheapo 15s though.
Car might be for sale. Not sure. I'll drive it for a couple of months, and see how I feel about it. Probably $3500. You can have my labour for free :-).
Had bought it to do an electric vehicle conversion, got sidetracked on the body resto, and now it's a bit nice to hack up.
Cheers,
Gerald in Katikati/Tauranga.

Post by: 3ur0Tr@5h on February 21, 2013, 08:25:46 am
Yes, it's an '86 8v K-Jet GTi that started life in the UK and arrived here in '87.
The colour is "Blue 5085" picked from a stack of swatches!
Deleted rear wiper, aerial, passenger mirror, rubbing strips, rear body joins & badges. I have a set of GTi beltline stripes, but I'm liking the look of it as is, so might leave those off too. Added the towbar.
Fairly pleased with it overall. paint is not perfect. Engine bay is untouched apart from maintenance items: new cambelt/tensioner, shift linkages/bushes, rad switch, thermostat etc.
Drives really well. I've put my E28 BMW on hold for a few months while driving the GTi. Will have to choose between them eventually. Maybe give one to the 16 yr old daughter :-( Nah, probably better to get her something disposable with big bullbars and airbags!

Sweet dude, met you at Movenpic one day. Best rear hatch/boot combo. You can always re-engine your car, go 1.8t or ABF. Make sure you make the meet if you aren't working!

Will be good to talk to people who know their stuff as I'm pretty clueless when it comes to cars. All I've done is suspension wheels and audio. Would love to do something engine wise whether its just a rebuild or full conversion! See you guys Sunday then!

Has the jetta front back on now, also have a boot spoiler that ill fit at some stage

For those that dont know its now running a 1.8t, running the standard ecu (with the immobiliser removed) close ratio 020 box with heavy duty clutch, mk4 radiator mounted a bit further back, intercooler is tucked in behind the grille, gets nice low intake temps, 2.5" exh from the turbo back, mk3 gti/vr6 running gear, mk3 gti wheels with 195/50/15, suspension is just a lowering kit that was in a mk2 that I wrecked a while ago, will get some coilovers so I can lift the front up a bit.

It goes quite well, close ratio box helps it a bit

Hi there, thought I'd drop in and say hello. Picked up my first Golf a few weeks ago, 1988 CLi 1.8 auto, 140ks, been off the road for 4 years. It's a jap import, so nice spec, sunroof, air con, leather. It could be quicker, but it'll do as a cruiser for now. Not too much to do on it for now, just sort out the locks/central/handles.

(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/05/15/eguha4uh.jpg)

Currently on these cool Heroes Racing wheels that I imagine it was imported on, so now 20+ year old lightweight Japanese rims. I love the look, definitely won't be letting these go. (crappy TM pic)

(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/05/15/vahe9u5y.jpg)

So far all I've done is change the fluids, gave it a clean and heat gunned the bumpers back to black.

I bought Muskies GTi off him a couple of months ago.

Havent dont too much to it since; just chucked some coilovers in and changed the grill out to a single headlight with no eyebrow.

Also picked up Omes's steelies yesterday.

Needs a bit of guard work then i can get it sitting a bit lower in the back. Pretty happy with how they look though.

Oh, and I got these to refurb and go on it yesterday too.

Ill get some better pictures once the guards have been done and it's sitting where I want it.

All in all I'm super stoked I decided to go the Mk2 route after my VR6 got written off!

1989 Volkswagen Golf GTI 16V, manual, 196000kms, Tornado Red, 1.8L KR engine

The only thing I have done is rebuilt the gear linkages with the Techtonics weighted shift rod, short shifter and replacement bushings
Future plans: Get it back to a factory image, new original parts - boot straps, gear knob etc. Reupholster the headliner, fix the curb rashing, paint the front and rear badges black, K&N panel filter, new 3.5" and 4x6" speakers, new Headunit and figure out how to use the alarm!

Well about seven weeks ago I drove to Auckland and picked up my dream car off of The Ridler, it took my sleepy girlfriend and I eight hours to get home at 4am. We ended up leaving it in Taupo for the night and driving back the next day after work because I broke a selecting rod. Apparently it had only done 1500kms in the seven years that he'd owned it for. That's all I really know about it. I'm just an 18 year old kid, working full time as a spray painter and living in Hawkes Bay. Hopefully it will be perfect in a couple of months, it's my second even car and I absolutely love it.

I bought Muskies GTi off him a couple of months ago.

Havent dont too much to it since; just chucked some coilovers in and changed the grill out to a single headlight with no eyebrow.

Also picked up Omes's steelies yesterday.

Needs a bit of guard work then i can get it sitting a bit lower in the back. Pretty happy with how they look though.

Looks awesome on the steelies Baxter! Can't wait to get your old grille on the Jetta... end of the week  :) will get photos on here once it's running and wof'd

Cheers for all the positive feed back guys, its much appreciated. We put a lot of effort, time and cash into this build, when I say we, I actually mean Barry (M), I just paid the bills and pretended to know what Barry was on about,
haha  ;D

Here goes at a bit of a spec...

Engine: OBD2 12V VR6, 268DRC cams, Ferrea kit, ARP bolt kit, complete gasket sets, new chain / guides etc, Autotech 10lb fly wheel, Sachs clutch kit, Gruvenparts billet pulley kit, Magnecor high performance leads, Mishimoto hoses,
G60 radiator & high output fan, ECU upgrade, Vibrotechnics engine mounts, K&N air filter, a few additional custom parts that only M can explain  8)

Gearbox: MK4 V5 box, 3.94 final drive, OBX LSD modified by M.

Exhaust: Techtonic tuning 2.5" down pipe back system (no cat) with Magnaflow back box.

Suspension & Brakes: KW V2 inox all round & Wilwood superlite 4 pot brake kit up front.

Wheels: B-Star RA's 16x8 ET35 front 25 rear with Hankook RS2 205x45.

Interior & Exterior: All standard GTi.

That's covered most things I think, M maybe able to add what I've missed. I couldn't be happier with the end result, designed for the local roads, Crown range, Lindis pass etc and looking forward to a dry, sticky summer  >:D

Cheers Karts and yea should be heaps of fun, just waiting for the Winter roads to clean up before being able to really enjoy  >:D. I imported the wheels from B-Star in the Uk, if you can source a decent freight option the overall cost is not too bad, I would advise getting them sent finished. PM me if you need some details.

Thanks Karts  :) I haven't yet decided how I'm going to tackle the seats. Where abouts did you source your seat covers from?  I'm hoping to keep it original so if I could find some original fabric that would be great. I'd love to see how you do it as it could be inspiration for me to give it a try!

Post by: KARTS on July 29, 2013, 07:37:37 pm
Haha, I was hoping you'd go first! I've got a garage full of seat frames that I need to piece together then re cover. In regards to fabric I bought some seats on ebay uk, got them couriered to an auto upholsterer who stripped them for me then got them stuffed in a suitcase for a family member to bring home. A bit of a process but they are MINT so well worth it. I may have some spare fabric from some rears that I'm not using that might work for you. Where do you need to replace?
Title: Re: Mk2 Owners - Your cars please...
Post by: chis on July 29, 2013, 09:58:44 pm
I did what KARTS did, found some on ebay, but mine were stripped so a little more straight forward, shipped in a bag, cheap as.  Mine were re upholstered by Auto Interior specialists in Mahuru st Newmarket.

Post by: BCH on August 03, 2013, 08:43:57 am
I've got the usual bolster wear and a generally tired drivers seat. If I can source the same fabric I'll probably just fix up the one seat. Otherwise it may be a total interior rethink

I've been putting it off adding my cars to this (cause of not having good photos!) but here,

This was my mk2 Golf I had about a year ago, brought it not going, only needed the electronic points changing, drove it up to my first Stance off with the Hamilton guys like this
(http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w151/Gooie_Andre/P3150669.jpg) (http://s175.photobucket.com/user/Gooie_Andre/media/P3150669.jpg.html)

Then sold it because we needed the cash. I had it like this on TradeMe, but the buyer didn't want the wheels
(http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w151/Gooie_Andre/P7100775.jpg) (http://s175.photobucket.com/user/Gooie_Andre/media/P7100775.jpg.html)

I think I fell in love with Jettas after seeing Duncans one!  :P  ..and found this one in Wellington with a very VERY slippery clutch!
(http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w151/Gooie_Andre/2012-08-17110133.jpg) (http://s175.photobucket.com/user/Gooie_Andre/media/2012-08-17110133.jpg.html)

And have got it to a wof-able stage now (it's only taken me 9months!!! :o ) but with a new edition to the family, that has taken priority of my time. Have added Standard Shortened shocks and compressed springs all round, but the back is rubbing so that needs tending to, badgeless single headlight golf grille with eyelid from Baxter, and the OG's for something better to look at than the standard 14"steels. It's got a carbied engine which is cool for a difference
(http://i175.photobucket.com/albums/w151/Gooie_Andre/P7260280.jpg) (http://s175.photobucket.com/user/Gooie_Andre/media/P7260280.jpg.html)

Plans are to add the sway bars I got off Basil, a stereo that works and some signage for my business on the bottoms of the doors, then in due time, coils, cert and some body mods which I are just ideas at the moment  ;D  Since it is carburettored, I'd love to 16V it with quad carbs, but that maybe is just a dream

Thought about Vinyl wrapping the front guards and bonnet in carbon fibre vinyl (since that's my job!) just for a short term. I know alot of people won't like that, but it's also got to be a work vehicle and shows a little about what my company can do.

Biggest problem is if the seats get damp as they do the wire rod that holds the centre cushion firm into the edge of the top and bottom boosters corrodes and wears thru the fabric sleeve which is nothing more than a light weight cotton material?.
These are hard to fix because the rear seat back is a sleeve over the frame and bolster.
We have very nice covers (thanks to MM) but loose baggy seats,sewing the wire sleeves back on is a major as it is sandwiched between the top fabric seam.
The boosters are and easy fix but the above issue requires a lot of unpicking and careful machine sewing to fix,good luck.

Thanks man, I just used some acrylic primer, paint and clear all off trademe but it was made by PPG paints. Most of the Equipment I just brought from Supercheap and Repco like 2.5hp compresson and 1.4mm and 1.8mm spray guns, was abit sceptical about using them because of quality but they worked fine and it came out way better than i thought. I had to cut and buff each panel though which took around 2 and a half hours each haha but was worth it. Oh and the steelies I got custom made from elite wheels in chch

15x8.5s et8.6?! How do they sit under the guards? Do you get any rubbing? And how far off the struts n body are they in the front? I like that width!! And they look sooooo good!!  :D

It's actually not that bad, it rubs over large bumps if i have people in the car but rarely. My guards are pretty heavily rolled and inside of the flares are cut out so that helps alot. Wheels easily clear the struts so no problems there, and cheers dude pretty pleased with em myself (:

Interesting... what's it like on full lock? Misses everything? And the backs are the same ET?
I know they would be the most used wheels on mk2s, but there's a reason for that! I'd go RSs if I could afford them!

Yeah same specs on all four corners, slight rub on full lock when turning left but only catches where the flare is attached. Haha yeah never thought i'd own a set myself.

Had my Golf for a couple of years now. Driver her everyday and love every litre of gas she burns. She's a bit rough but she has character.

Done a few things to her, lowered, eye brow, she's a work in progress.

Hi All

MK2 Golf CLi with some minor motor work done, now running a mild cam and extractors.  It has the GTi 4 light front grill, front lip & rear spoiler and sits on 14 inch P slot mags.  Just installed some GTi springs which lowered it 40mm, and now looking for some 15 x 7 rims for it.

Future plans include brace bars front & rear, short shift kit, upgrade steering wheel & fit a new stereo. What's the collective wisdom of drilling the airbox & fitting a K&N filter ... anything to be gained?

Cheers Chris

Hello to you all,here are the only 2 pics of my fella that I have in my photobucket account. Turbo Diesel (jap import) been on hold for a year now pending a makeover has recently been replaced by a MK3 GSX (SA import) as a daily. MK2 developed a brake fault,only seems to brake on front passenger wheel.Any ideas? Have done master cyl and both rears.Not changed the bias valve yet though.There will be more pics if and when work starts again.

So now I finally own the mk2 I've wanted for many years now (Pontos mk2) built by m developments. It's been in my dad's hands for several years now since we picked it up from Barry in the south island and cared for it like a baby as will I . Only changes that has been done since he bought it is the change of the gear box as he daily drove it for quite a while and the short ratio was awesome for driving quick but not the best for open road . He bought a brand new Nos mk4 gear box from south America with a final drive between the normal vr6 and the v5 ,so more of a happy medium, can't remember the exact final drive off my head but he also had a  wave trac lsd fitted at the same time which is awesome . Other then that the car hasn't changed much perfect the way it is .
