    Thanks for the cabby advice guys, I went to view the car this morning, it was at a garage friend of the sellers awaiting a new exhaust and a fuel/temp gauge repair. It has been sat a while and had a flat tyre so looked a bit sad for itself but it fire up OK if sounding like a tractor, it was very tidy with no signs of rust and bone dry inside. 
    It needs a couple of tyres, a good polish and clean and a service as it's not been used much for 7 years and the suspension it's stupidly low on adjustable coilovers but we shook on £3250 which I felt was fair. 




    I spoke to the previous lady owner too who said she wish she could afford to buy it back, she's the one who lowered it all and fitted the wank number plates, it will be putting back to standard again!

    I'm off to view a potential new car for Mrs Trigger tomorrow morning but if I'm honest I don't know a lot about them. 




    It's this 1983 Golf Cabriolet, apparently its a GLi but with a 1.8 GTi engine from factory? Is that right? What do I need to look out for? I'm told it has no rust, it's had a new hood and is currently at a garage having a ew exhaust and fuel sender fitted. 
    I've found a old advert from 7 years when it was sold by the last owner.

    It's up for £3500, is that about right?

    The steering isn't heavy on my Scirocco and that don't have PAS either. I wouldn't swear to it, but I don't think the wheel is correct, that's from a base or very early model surely? The posher models should be more like this...
    Bloody good fun tho'

    Re the GLi /GTi  thing. The engine in all GLis is the same as GTis , VW just didn’t badge the convertibles as GTi much the same as early Escort cab.s we’re  not XR3i, rather 1.6i. Probably an insurance thing.
    I had a hire one for a couple months in 1984 and loved it, even new it creaked and rattled a bit if you abused it( I was 20, it was a rental) but it was still drove better than my new  XR3i when that finally got delivered.
    Bought a Clipper a couple of years ago that never ran right because of a shit carb, obviously not an issue with this.
