Enda, looks like a nice Gti you have there, I had a nice '92 grey one last year I had to let go. I never got it Irish registered and got caught by customs- i agreed to take it back to the uk in the end. A combination of finances and needing a 7-seater. I still take the odd drive in my 16 which is lovely apart from a duff engine- burning loads of oil, it smells!
If anyone hears of a 16 or 19 engine in Ireland..
Let me know if you're ever looking for a new home for the GTi , we sometimes get up to Sligo.
Kieran, that mk1 diesel you have is lovely, I test drove it at Wolsey House a couple of years back but couldn't take it on at the time.
I also heard about that '92 White Gti today from a CCC member, might check it out. high miles though, I'd hope to hear it's had a new engine or engine re-con. Will give the guy a call tomorrow.
There aren't many on the roads over here, a white tzd turbo pootles round Dun Laoghaire, saw another interesting one- unusual colour, metallic burgundy, Cork registered diesel, seemed to be bouncing around Dublin city centre on worn out spheres. There's another nice Gti in black lurking in Wicklow, and that same CCC member has just brought a 70k miles TZD Turbo in from the uk, which I might see in the next few weeks.
