Written on: 01/09/2009

The Volkswagen Golk m2 is fast becoming a classic. Ive owned 1 mk, 2 mk drivers(inc this 1) 2 mk2 gti's and a Vento.
Bought as a runabout for £250 after driving a top of the range Audi a6 and it took some getting used to but once I had it was great. None of the abs, power steering etc but great fun to drive. Its 1 of those cars where you feel the speed, 40 feels like 80 and you really feel like your foot is mm from the engine. Now it is obviously not as quick as the gti but you will be hard… Read Full Review

My distributor was faulty, the ignition coil was faulty, and a few other things.. since ive had it, ive replaced my original shocks with new coilovers.. switched my bottom end with a 1.8one and now the car is unbelieveable! ive never had so much fun driving a car! ive driven alot of my friends cars such as corsa's clios saxos but nothing compares.. the drive in the golf is… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/08/2008 by lurch676 (1 review written)

The Second MarkII VW Golf I've owned (the first being a 1.3) and I love it - bought it "without a starter motor" and then found that the lady had just flicked the immobiliser switch that some previous owner had put in.
I dunno what you mean about no grunt, drop from 5th to 3rd and FLOOR IT, watch that increase. Quite right about the driving position; I'm 6 foot 5 inches tall and I sit comfortably for up to 4-5 hours at a time. Fuel consumption is great... £15 from London to Nottingham (with… Read Full Review

“I own a 1989 golf mk2 1.6 driver, it has been recently...”

Written on: 11/02/2008

I own a 1989 golf mk2 1.6 driver, it has been recently fitted with a weber 32/34 carb, GTi front suspension and GTi interior. Even though the interior was badly put on and is now decaying, the car is in great shape. The 1.6 has enough grunt for everyday stuff and enough for some fun, but it could do with more, maybe 100bhp rather than 75bhp. Boot space is great, rear leg room is good, and driving position is perfect. The engine is noisy due to its age, but its nothing disapointing. I recommend… Read Full Review
