After the huge success of the Mk1 Golf, Volkswagen introduced the Mk2 Golf at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September '83 with UK production commencing in March 1984. During it's production Volkswagen continued to developed the Mk2 with mechanical upgrades including the change from the early K-Jetronic injection system to the more advanced Bosch L-Jetronic / Digifant system and minor interior and exterior changes culminating the 'Big Bumper' models being introduced in late 1989 models, with production finally ceasing in 1991.

This beautifully presented late production, Aug '91, Volkswagen Golf GTI was originally sold through the VAG dealership J.E.F Waltham Cross was clearly well specified when new, with the car having the following specification:

  • 1.8 Litre Digifant Engine (PB engine code) with 5 Speed Manual
  • Finished in Alpine White (code: L90E)
  • Ultraviolet Interior (code: XT)
  • 15" BBS RA Alloys (refurbished and fitted with a matched set of Yokohama tyres)
  • Central Locking
  • Power Steering
  • Sliding sunroof
  • addition approved Alarm
  • Door pocket speakers.

In addition to these options the car also has the following extras:

  • Volkswagen over-mats
  • CAT 2 immobiliser

Having owned many Mk2 Golfs the opportunity to find original, unmolested examples rarely occurs these days, so when we were contacted by the current owner of this car, the gent having bought it from a specialist 4 yrs ago we jumped at the opportunity to bring this example into our portfolio, the 150 mile back to base being an absolute delight, with the car returning over 38mpg too! 

Finished In her stunning Alpine White this 'Big Bumper' Mk2 Golf GTI remains is in very good condition, with panel gaps consistent with Volkswagens high build quality. All the rubbers, side trims, wheel arch plastics and the bumpers have resisted any bleaching, suggesting she has been garaged through her life and with the exception of the odd minor mark, none of which detract from her condition, it is remarkable to consider this GTI is now 30 years old and she happily still wears her GTI badge with great pride!

Consummate with the exterior condition the interior is just as it left the factory, no after-market speaker holes etc. The seats, in the rarer Ultraviolet fabric are free from any marks, the fabric throughout is free from any creasing and the front seat bolsters still remain firm. Often a weak point on Mk2 Golfs the roof lining and rear parcel shelf are in excellent order too and the car comes fitted with a full set of Votex (Volkswagen option) over-mats. The dash area remains free from any damage and the MFA (trip computer) remains fully functional (indicating an impressive 38.4mpg on the 152 mile journey back to our showroom) and on inspecting the boot area shows the car to be all original, with the Volkswagen F.Aid kit, tool-kit, warning triangle all in place with the all important Volkswagen 'build' sticker is present on the rear panel, matching exactly the one placed on the inside of the service book.

Mechanically this Golf GTI has obviously been cherished too. With the CAT 2 immobiliser deactivated the 1.8 litre, 8 valve engine fires without hesitation and settles into a smooth idle. Out on the open road the GTI performs exactly as expected with the 8 valve providing smooth power delivery through the crisp 5 speed gearbox. As the advertising campaigns suggested, 'if only everything in life was as reliable as a Golf', I would have no hesitation in jumping into the GTI and driving anywhere, she's a real pleasure to drive.

A truly cherished example this Volkswagen Golf GTI comes with a great history file and she's had just 3 previous keepers. The box folder contains a great selection invoices, the original Panasonic Stereo instructions, the original dealer book pack with instruction manuals, dealer network information and the all important Volkswagen service schedule booklet with 10 service stamps, early history being VW main dealer, followed by independent garage and VW specialist (cambelt etc @86483 in '17) and the last being in 2018 @ 88,471 miles and naturally she'll be fully inspected / serviced before she leaves us for her new owner. In addition to her comprehensive history file, which includes MOT certificates, previous tax discs, she also comes with 2 sets of keys, plus spare immobiliser fobs.

A classic in every sense of the word, the mk2 Golf GTI, gives all the enjoyment of classic car ownership with the driving dynamics and ease of ownership of a modern motor and in such wonderful condition, with the history to match we really don't think you'll find a better all round classic.
