Mk2 Jetta gti

Post by rob026 on Sat Mar 13, 2010 11:43 am

I have just joined the forum so thought I had best introduce my car.
I have just bought this off a chap in redruth, for the rather reasonable price of 500 pounds,
needs lots and lots of stuff sorting out, but its a pretty good place to start,
has a few bits of surface rust here and there,
but nothing major and already have got a quote for respray in the winter 8-) ,
so will be getting all the body work sorted out while its warmer over the summer,
Its pretty good mechanically just has some issues getting going first thing in morning,
but then so did i when i was 23
Its had a few things done to it, a G60 master cylinder, 16v hubs and disks up front, fk ak coilies and untill I buy a stendard one, a solid front engine mount (dont like it)
Oh yeah and it has one of the cleanest mk2 interiors ive seen 👍
any ways some pics

I would of loved a 16v but its not very often you see an 8v jetta for sale let alone a 16v Cool

I was wondering if they were the original doors Question

Hi ya buddy welcome to the JOC lovely GTi you have there in the best color (im not biasd) Ive just had a look on Etka and they dont list 90 spec doors for you car they list the original qtr light doors like mine so i would say they arent the original ones.

Hi there lovely colour got a soft spot for alpine white same as ant, but i feel the urge to chuck my two pence in on the door front as it does depend on year of manufacture i have a valver on a E plate an it has what people like to call 90 spec doors on it!? I was slightly confused about this when i bought it back in 2000 but the car only had two owners from new. I ask my local dealer to check it out for me and it turned out the car had been produced in early jan 1988 and was factory fitted with single glass front doors in germany as i was expecting so my guess is that your doors will probably been the genuine items Shocked .
Feel free to check mine Ant Reg is = E819 MVV
First registered = 19/04/1988
Chassis no = 16ZJW503413

Let us know what you find coz i never dug any further. Cool

Going through Etka it sugests that your car should have the front qtr lights as they didnt change till 1988 so arent listed for your year and yours was registerd befor that (16/12/1987 Smile ). i have done the same comparrisonn on Etka for yours aswell Dirtydubber and yours like you say is registerd as an 88 and they dont list the qtr light doors for that one so yours would have factory fitted 90 specs

Pre 1988 Part no example 4dr left door 167 831 051 C
1988 on Part no example 4dr left door 167 831 051 E

Cheers Ant it knew i could rely on you to do the hunting for me Wink . But on a more serious note take a pic of the hinge bolts i havent met many people that repaint them after fitting new doors plus this might be something that Ant my be able to help with but the rear doors are a bit of a give away too as im sure that early doors didnt have holes for pop on door trims like you have i think im right in saying that all early doors were fitted with stick on mouldings????? It could be the case that all four doors were changed but then i would expect some damage to the paint on the hinge bolts Question Dont no im just chucking ideas out there...
