    I had one but it was a diesel. would have been faster to cut holes in floor and propel it flintstones style.

    Cool car. It's not just the Mk1 GTI that was important for hot hatches; the Mk1 itself set new standards for quality and reliability in its class that everyone else is (arguably) still trying to match.

    Was it not originally and Audi 50 or something like that. So should Audi not take the credit?

    Are you getting mixed up with the mk1 polo? Because the Audi 50 was rebadged in 1975 as a VW Polo and the pair were sold side by side for 3 years.

    The MK1 Golf is Legendary. The original GTi (the XR3 had carbs) and the first true "Hot Hatch". My best mate had one for years and it was a ton of fun to drive. I'd love one with a 2L 16V engine for fun weekend drives

    Golf Mk1 campaign

    Hi All
    Had a Golf MK1 Campaign in Helios Blue(A981WMU) a few years back and wish i'd never sold it. Fetching silly wads now and are very rare in standard form. Too many speed junkies buying them and fitting 16v/g60 engines to them. Keep em standard and enjoy what you got.

    Mine is away for the winter now.

    Its a little lower these days and with a set of old style 14 inch BBS RS



    The weirdest thing about it is the smell of unfiltered exhaust fumes, the good old days I guess.

    Mk1 Golf GTi. What more can you say, it really started the mainstream hot hatches. For sure you had stuff like the Lotus Sunbeam before hand but they were more specials than production line models.

    Anybody who claims a Mk1 Golf isn't cool needs their heads reading

    I always had a soft spot for them so had to buy this little one to keep me happy over the summer! They're great little cars and I'd defo buy a tin top if the opportunity to own a nice example at a good price came along.

    ARRRRRHGGGGGHHH.... This brings back so many memories and regrets, i miss my 83 (A) Mars Red Mk1 Campaign like buggery, i sold it 7 years ago for 1500, 63000 miles owned from brand new by my dad...... really really regret that as it was pretty much concours..wot a dick i am, i then moved onto a Mk2 16v, got a bit bored so i sent it to TSR, 2.9 VR6 motor, big valve head and schrich cams, quaife diff the lot, then took it straight down to NS Racing and had a supercharger slinged on, wot a fookin monster 301bhp at the wheels!!!, far too much mumbo for 2wd, car cost including buying 19k to build, i got 6k for it 4 yrs ago, another fookin big regret, taking into account i bought an Escort Cosworth to replace it, and it was **** from start to finish, how overrated!!!

    Here in South Africa we had a limited CITI R line that came out, 1.8 fuel injection with stronger rods, crank, cam & exhaust system. It produces 90kw and there were only 100 made, here is some pictures :









    Still the best selling little car in our country!!!

    Rather like that actually....

    I had one of the 1.6 GTIs on a 'V' plate, with the deep dish steel wheels, 4 speed box, completely standard except uprated headlights. Fantastic but the brakes were bloody awful!

    Ahhh memories

    I had a MK1, I put a Mk3 2.0 8v lump in it, then had TSR bore it to 2.1, I kept it as an 8v for the extra torque. Not sure what the top speed was as the speedo only went up to 120mph. I had planned to put MK3 clocks (which went up to 140mph) with a polo dash but ran out of funds and had to sell it

    I spent years and 's on the engine, brakes, suspension and left the rust/dents and faded mars red(/orange), it was a real street sleeper.

    I sold it to a guy in Southampton who I think is still racing it. Reg was A215 ANJ
