    Hey,

    I currently have a 2000 1.4 mk3 cool\s and quite frankley it's boring to drive.

    I've seen a 1.8gti 1996 on 85k 11months mot and 6months tax for £950. From the photos on autotrader it looks in good condition. Maybe a little bit over priced, thinking £750.

    What should I look out for when buying? It has a sunroof would this be a factory fitted option? Do the mk2's suffer from a heavy clutch like the mk3? The ad says it has 130hp, standard?

    Thanks!

    Its the MK2 golf GTi engine so yes 130 horses sounds about right. Could get a sunroof from the factory, it will be tilt and slide if it was.

    They do suffer from the heavy clutch and checking the car over thoroughly for any rust is a must!

    check it on idle and start up if it self revs and ask for service history when belt was changed or is due etc as

    Silver one ?

    looks like a factory roof from the pics, plates blanked out so i couldnt check your engine code but check it's a 16v to be sure as ATrader is notorious for getting it wrong - looks private owned though and tidy

    Nope, not correct :)

    ADL engine is a special Seat engine with higher pistons than PL/KR pistons because of that has ADL 10.5:1 compression.

    ADL engine has also an ABF head(053) and not PL/KR head(027). Also the camshafts are from ABF.

    Injection is not sequential like on ABF ->because od that ADL engine dont have crank sensor.

    2 Zero: this is golden information for me, If I realize corectly then my car allready have ABF camshafts1? When I better think, It make a sence because my car has performance very much same as Golf Mk3ABF (when we ride together he cannot overtake me just like that).

    2 WeeJase: which gerabox is best for this engine...my is half in a grave allready so I think to repair It but in this case maybe better to change It with something different.
    Write a little bit about this please

    Just 2Y is shorter but stronger 020 gearbox than your CRY gearbox in Ibiza.

    1030kg ibiza vs 1240kg golf mk3 tell enough :)
