You really need to get yourself over to Spain and pick up the black one with the dodgy head gasket :laughing2

You would almost have a full set of colours then!

At last the GTi turned up today :) Must say was it a surprise as i havent heard anything for a week since paying a deposit via Ebay :laughing2 Anyway im happy to report she was worth the wait and is completely RUST FREE with no sighs of ever having had any paint work done :o I think i might keep this one and convert over to DOHC spec :S

That’s the most basic GTi I’ve ever seen.... steel wheels, SOHC engine, cloth seats, manual windows....

Alloys were optional on the 216GTi and many were sold without but most that have survived have had the steel wheels replaced by alloys. Cloth bolsters and manual windows were also standard. Only the 216 Twin Cam and 220GTi got the leather bolsters, elec windows and alloys.
