      I absolutely adore my 1988 16v GTI, but the previous owner had an exhaust system put on that I consider to be obnoxious. Looks like what he did was cut everything from the cat back and weld in new...

      I just bought a 1988 GTI and it has a new set of JOM coilovers on it.

      Please forgive my ignorance, as I have never had coilovers before, but how is my car supposed to be set up? Right now, (and...

      Ended up settling at 3600. The teardrops are really nice and two of them had good tires so I only have to buy 2 instead of 4.

      I'll post some pics when I get it home tomorrow.

      Not my first go around with a MK2 golf, so I already have the Bentley!

      I can live with the exhaust for a while, and it won't factor into the negotiation. The tires/wheels definitely will. Even...

      I'm going to get it on Saturday.

      The only real negotiation is over the tires, as it doesn't come with those BBS wheels and the set of teardrops doesn't have 4 usable tires. I figure when you...

      Thanks for the response! It's indeed an un-molested car aside from the coilovers (adjustable) and those wheels which I would replace.

      I have NEVER seen another Mk2 Gti for sale around here, and...

      1988 GTI Possible Purchace

      I just looked at a 1988 GTI 16v. It's in fantastic shape with only some minor paint issues in terms of the clearcoat. Interior is near mint with no tears in the seats and the bolsters are still in...

      FS: Hardback MK2 Bentley Manual

      As I have gotten rid of that dumpster fire of a Golf I had, I no longer need my Bentley Manual.
