i just got this golf GTI from the original owner who kept very good care of it until he parked it in a pole barn about 9 years ago. i replaced the fuel pump and she fired right up and runs great! i have cleaned her up and found all kinds of new parts still in the original boxes in the truck/hatch. he also gave me a parts car to go with it.
enjoy:
