Come on, you had one back in the day! You might even have one now. Please tell us about it. Show us the pics.
I don’t have any pics but I had a 3 door 8v in white, same shape as this:
“89 on a G” as my motor mechanic brother used to say. One owner from new and full VAG service history when I bought it. He found it hilarious that it had steel wheels, hub caps, mudflaps and a tow bar (which I had taken off, obvs.) Personally I loved that car. Sold it with 149K on the clock, and possibly a slightly dodgy water pump. No rattles or squeaks. All I did was the oil and filter every six months.
Great memories especially of driving regularly down the A35 to Exeter at the weekends to see my then girlfriend.
You’re an opinionated lot, so does the MK1 hold the same place in the pantheon as the original Nait. And is the SN3 a lardy R32 or whatever they are calling the latest one?!! Which was your favourite and why? Were the Golfs the best of their day? Did the 205GTi even come close? And I can already sense from that disdainful grimace of their very mention that for many here those two choices are not nearly niche enough. So give us your little known maverick hot hatch choices of the cognoscenti.
Anyway tell us your tales. Show us your pics. Have fun with it in these self-isolating times.
