The vendor has owned this Volkswagen Golf 2.0 GTI MkII since 2017 but has known it since 2002. The previous owner extensively and expensively modified it over 15 years with substantial performance upgrades including a £3000 engine, uprated (but not lowered) suspension and brakes and various changes to the interior, with the work amounting to over £30,000. The mods include a performance-tuned TSR ‘Brands Hatch' 2.0-litre engine when the car's mileage was at 146,000, MkIV Golf brake calipers and discs, short-shift gear selector, Sparco seats and frames, and four-point harnesses. There's also a Toad alarm fitted. The vendor tells us that the car runs very well with no issues, although he notes that the bonnet release cable has slipped out of the catch - however, the bonnet can still be opened with a bar or screwdriver through the grille. 

During the vendor's seven years and 4000 miles of ownership, the Golf hasn't been used during winter and been stored in a garage when not being driven. It received an oil and filter change during the summer. The car was registered in August 1989 and has an MoT through to May 2024. The current indicated mileage is 178,055 miles.    

There's a huge history file with the Golf which encompasses the V5C, owner's handbook, VAG service book, warranty books, instructions for the Sony CD player/DAB radio, two Haynes manuals and owner's background notes. The massive stack of invoices date from 2002 to 2016 for the upgrade work, with MoTs back to 2006. In addition, there's paperwork regarding the TSR engine and installation, tuning and remap. A new battery was also fitted in September last year.
