Mk2 Jetta. New car

Well people earlier this year around mid august. i was lucky to come across a vehicle.

Run down:

1992 Mark 2 Jetta, Dark grey in colour. 8 valve engine making a ridiculously fast yet debatable 100 Horsepower. torque unknown. 3 speed auto. received the car at exactly 89,253 Kilometers on the odometer.

Story behind it...

My grandfathers friend purchased the vehicle at queensway Volkswagen 16 years ago as a brand new vehicle. Now he was going to trade it in to buy a new Hyundai accent but the trade in value would have been around 100 dollars. so i literally purchased this vehicle for 1 bottle of Johnny walker black label of scotch.

when i first laid eyes on this vehicle i knew it was in great condition. interior was in a condition that you wouldn't believe. Fired it up and burping was coming out from the ORIGINAL muffler. took it for a test drive, around the neighborhood brakes were phenomenal as they were changed recently everything was in great condition.

when i took it in for safety and E-test. the muffler was changed and passed with ease. safety wise the right rear wheel cylinder in the drum brakes was leaking. (i was expecting a bunch of things for safety,to good to be true).

so 15 dollar part and a afternoon later it was good to go.

i forgot to mention rust!!...
if you look real real real close... on the driver side passenger door there is a brownish bubble about the size of a childs pinky right beside the rear wheel flares.
dents.. there is One dent on the hood about the size of nickel but can easily be popped out.

So far.. ive smoked the rear tail lights.. put on many coats of black wheel paint on the wheels... and put in a new sound system.. and thoroughly cleaned the interior.

wish list include H+R race springs and front quad light euro grill. and HID kit for all lights.
negative and positive feedback is accepted.. and ideas are taken into serious consideration.
here are the pictures taken the last week of august.

excellent find....

feedback and suggestions:
anything you do to the car..do it once and do it right...

if you get the springs the car will sit lower at the back and higher up front..you dont want that so just get coil overs...
put some 16s porsches
keep the motor if you like your shit original..or just put a vr...imo any other motor is a waste of time..


good luck buddy

I had 4 mk2's before, I loved them, they were so simple and easy to maintain.

pull out the digifant and drop a 16V on CIS in there
