***This amazing car is part of my private collection and not part of our regular inventory. I purchased the car several years ago from the original owner. The car was parked in their garage and all original.
Since the paint was original and over 2 decades old, had it stripped down to bare metal and professionally repainted. The sheet metal is all original and 100% rust free.
I also removed the interior and installed new carpets as well as a matching suede headliner. The seats are all original and like new. I also installed a period correct Alpine pull out head unit and top of the line Alpine remote alarm system with the optional dash mounted keypad.
I hid 2 amplifiers under the passenger seat, nd a bass engine under the driver seat just to give it a little depth. I also added power windows and custom mounted the switches to the dash bezel, luminum pedals, luminum shift knob, amp; genuine Lloyd's custom embroidered carpet floor mats.
Trying to keep the upgrades mostly period correct and trying not to comprise the originality too much, he exterior upgrades are subtle and tasteful. The large square side reflectors were shaved, nd the bulgy plastic fender flares were removed.The fender mounted antenna was shaved and replaced with a Fuba roof mount. The stodgy metal bumpers were replaced with lightweight European bumpers and smoked bumper lights. I also added a genuine HellaEuro rear fog light. The halogen sealed beams were replaced with projector beam units with HID xenon bulbs, nd yellow Bosch Euro fog lights were added. The Rabbit GTI hatch emblem has been changed to the Euro Golf GTI style, ut the original emblem is like new and included. There is also a very hard to find NOS Zender rear roof spoiler that gives it a muscular and sleek appearance.
I replaced the clutch, lywheel, xles, teering and suspension components, nd also added Racelandcoilover shocks in order to be able to adjust the ride height. I also added a genuine Neuspeedupper strut tower brace. The gold BBS RS Style wheels look amazing and are period correct. The original GTI 14" snowflake wheels are included and in great original condition.
Under the hood, he water pump, adiator, an, askets, eals, attery, lternator, lugs, ap, otor, ires, C compressor, tainless steel fuel lines, ilters, luids etc. etc are new. Most other components were removed, leaned and either painted or powder coated. I replaced the hood prop rod with aluminumgas charged hood struts, nd added a racing style battery cut off switch in order to keep the battery from draining when not in use.
I have the GTI owners manual as well as remotes, eys, ack, pare tire, enter cap removal tool and also some of the original parts that are included as well.
There is so much more to be said, ut I encourage serious buyers to call with any specific questions or concerns and I will be happy to help. I will also be happy to do a virtual walk aroundwith skype, acetime etc. I do not NEED to sell the car by any means, o I will not entertain any low ball offers and and am not interested in any trades. Since this is my personal car, here is no retail sales tax!Free nationwide shipping will be included in the BUY IT NOW price! Thanks for looking, an
