Got my hands on a VGC MK1 GTi - 1987 model.
Found out they are quite rare which is a bonus and
have not seen another on the road since buying, unlike
my common as muk WRX.
Mine has straight through exhaust and sports suspension and
The car is a great cheap ride, practicle, reliable and great on fuel.
Engine and handling are fun but its let down by average brakes,
heavy steering and is upset by bumps while conering.
If u are considering buying one make sure u get a good one as many
will be abused and/or not looked after. Engines handle mods well,
