I actually bought it in 1993 but the list doesnt go that far back. I dont still own it, I traded it in to the late Roger Bradford in Summer 2000 for a series 1 GTi manual.

Had usual problems - Rust around the sunroof, rust in the footwells, ate a couple of alternators and a battery in the 6 years I had it.

Rear swing arm bearings done with mod so you could grease them helped a bit - new spheres front and rear plus the accumulator re-gassed.

Still it looked smart in black - very good "presence" and went ok with the normally aspirated pushrod engine - about 140 horsepower I think.

Handling was good on michelins, no feedback but it went where you pointed it - like a big mini.

Lots of niggles - trim, bodywork, electrics, part of the classic car thing i suppose but I got bored with them in the end and drive modern boxes now, but still browse ebay now and again.....
