And this really tidy Golf GTi. I had forgotten how small they were in comparison to modern cars!

Ah yes, had that for three and a half years, early X100 from 1998. Always promised myself one and it didn't disappoint. Sold it earlier this year and will probably regret it in 10 years time, when they have soared in price, not just sticking it in a barn!

On my wish list too - footwells can rot due to a design fault apparently.

Yes, that is a common problem but the PO of mine looked after it well (why I bought it) and had the floors done and then had everything waxoyled. Buy one now while they are still relatively cheap. Mine was still on the original engine, one of the ones that never had the Nikasil problem.

Funny thing is that it is similar in colour to my old Kitten which I had resprayed in Vauxhall Powder Blue as I was no fan of Orange!

Still prefer the black trim on mine over the all one colour.

your cat liked the orange as it seems to have worn the paint off the bonnet where it's toasty !! :shock:
