    Nice idea, but most I've seen have been poorly executed.

    Cool but given how rare the Mk1 is nowadays, you've got to be brave to heavily modify one.

    In my view, a modified Mk1 is never as cool as a standard one.

    Not enough standard GTIs left...and far too many badly modified efforts.
    Also, adding a soul-less 1.8T doesn't make it any better!

    Not cool for me...the standard car, very cool...but with an S3 engine...sadly less so.

    It will handle like a blamanche!!!

    I'm with Ess on this one, MK1's need nothing other than a good lowering and a set of BBS's.

    Nuff said.

    This imo is a pointless poll, modified cars are usually built for ones own pleasure and not others, but if it gets interest from other people, then it's a bunus.

    For me, part of the inherant 'coolness' of the Mk1 GTI (apart from it being the first of the GTIs as we know them) was the fact that it had exactly the right amount of power for the chassis (albeit bendy chassis and uber poor brakes!)

    You could drive it on the throttle...throw it about...and do so with full commitment with little real fear of getting bitten.

    Sensibly lowered and on decent light wheels (BBS naturally) in either 6x14 or 6x15 with 185/60/14 or 195/50/15 tyres and you have the near perfect GTI of it's time.
    Timeless...and to me, super cool.

    Shouldn't that read:

    I like it!!

    I think its a great idea, however at the same time i agree that the mk1 should stay as it is, as it was built just the way it should be...

    Keeping them looking standard and doing the engine conversion always makes it that bit special, like the JBS R32 mk2, a normal average joe on the street would not be able to tell the difference at all....

    Good idea, but keep it street sleeper...

    Loving the blue surround grill, and motorsport badge, but does it have a 16V head G60 under the bonnet? ;)

    Nice idea, a Mk1 would be cool but not a modified one.

    If that is a 16V G60, then it's even more cool due to VW only making about 100 16V G60's. The 16V G60 was only introduced in the Mk2 and they were only made for Germany. The one's here have been imported.:respekt:

    Is that the 16vG60 that was in PVW for sale - looks like it....

    Never had a hard top but the 2 late convertibles I had were awaful for scuttle shake....always gonna be the case with old convertibles i guess, makes me laugh when I see that people put far more powerful engines in the soft tops - not worth it if you ask me.
