right here we have for sale my pride and joy which is only for sale due to me wanting to put the money from the sale towards finishing my corrado vrt project off i have put a lot of time and cash into this car turning it from a standard gti 8v to what it is now but its time for someone else to enjoy it! i bought the car in 2009 spent a few years doing the conversion with a lot of help from a friend who is a vw specialist, the car got back on the road in 2012 and i reset the clocks to zero after doing/having all the work done, i had the engine installed in a previous car so thats been with me about ten years!

rear 1 toyo proxes t1r and one older style toyo proxes


bad bits: some slight bubbling around the filler cap which has not yet broken the paint

odd stone chip here and there but not that noticable as i have always touched them up then gone over them with my da polisher to make the surface flat again

couple of scuffs on one of the sideskirts

some corrosion on some of the running gear/ gearbox paint

small hole inside one of the front jacking points (not the sill the bit that sticks out that folk jack the car up on!)

non matching rear tyres (one old style proxes one new) having just bought the pair of fronts i wasnt going to pay out for another for the rear just so they all match plus the new owner may wish to switch to another brand

front seats not wired in, i have the loom somewhere but the fuseboard end plug has been removed can be wired to any ignition live


so yeah overall its a lovely mk2 with a decent spec was made more to be a drivers car which could still rock upto a show and not look out of place which is what it has done unfortuatly due to being used properly some of the running gear etc could do with a spruce up to be at its best again but is still perfectly presentable


i chose to mention the small hole inside the jacking point as i would rather know about it if i was buying, i could of quite easily sprayed over it with underseal and kept quiet as it is i have just sprayed some waxoil on it to stop it from getting worse the area is still solid and you can still jack the car up at that point i have a pit in my garage and any serious buyers are welcome to inspect the car from underneath as i have nothing to hide, i could sort this/get it sorted but i have spent the past few months of my spare time getting the car ready for sale (sorting all the little jobs that i never got round to doing!) and would rather be putting the time into my corrado

may possibly take a px most likely for a tt worth upto £2000 for my gf (no silver ones!) and obviously the rest of the money my way!


could also sell it a bit cheaper if i kept the front seats, would be supplied with the original rainbow ones
