It has covered just over 130, 000 miles and passed its MOT a month ago with no advisories.
Everything is present and correct for Sportline spec including the Recaro interior, leather steering wheel and gear knob, correct 15” BBS rims with black centres, red instrument needles and Sportline decals.
Everything works, including the electric roof (which was replaced 5 years ago but it has been garaged since so is as new). The MFA is fully working too with a fully functioning screen!
It even has its original dealer fit VW floor mats and mud guards in place and tonneau cover.
A light restoration was completed earlier this year, including renewing the cooling system, heater matrix and radiator as well as replacing HT leads, distributor and rotor arm. The gearbox oil was renewed along with new seals. New modern retro headunit as previously mentioned with new speakers all around and upgraded DAB aerial booster. The oil and filter were also changed along with air filter and fuel filter. Inner spotlights lights were refurbished as they had clouded and are now clear and the headlight loom upgraded and relayed in order to improve headlight output. The wheel alignment was also seen to. In addition to this the engine has been set up correctly and tuned so it purrs just like it should and drives with with the responses you would expect from a GTI.
Shortly before my ownership the car was also treated to new pads, discs and drums all around, new spark plugs, injector lines and injectors. It also gained a new standard exhaust so no silly boy racer sounds.
Other things that mark this car out amongst all the trash out there is the little touches, such as the dash having never been drilled for security systems or the parcel shelf for speakers. Everything is as it left the factory, such as the original and correct green tinted VW glass all around, including original windscreen! There have also only been 4 owners in 30 years and the car is HPI clear.
The car has a comprehensive service history from new, including original service book and original bill of sale as well as receipts going back through its entire life. Both keys are also present and they operate all locks and ignition as they should, so nothing has ever been changed. I have changed the oil and filter every 12 months (only covering around 1000 miles between changes).
I also had an immobiliser professionally installed recently with certification included to protect the car from less desirable people.
This is my second Sportline and it took me 4 years to find it. Must be one of the very best in the country and attracts smiles and questions everywhere you go as well as constant offers to buy it!
The only reason for sale is that our family is growing and the cabriolet only seats 4!
A rare and totally standard bit of VW history! Must be one of the best in the UK!
Thank you for looking
