I have a chance to buy a very nice, black 8v mk2 golf gti with BBS alloys and
no mods whatsoever
1990, 2 owners (from same family),89000,H.P.I clear, with lots of history.

I just wondered if anyone could advise me a little.
As I said, the engine runs fine and gear change is very good.
Without seeing the car I know its a bit awkward for you good people but maybe
someone has had something similar to report, big bills
