A wicked old motor
Clutch went at 1o2ooo.
Paint on drivers door peeling.
2 engine mounts.
Interior and half the dash lights don't work.
When I first got my R19 16v, the first thing I did was make a one off induction kit, with a MK1 golf GTI power raw, cold air feed and universal filter.
I also stripped my front bumper of its fogs and black plastic and replaced it with mesh and a Laguna front skirt to keep the filter, brakes and engine cooler.
I found this improved the cars pick up and all round performance not to mention the raw from under the bonnet.
I have also found the back end lively in the wet, but I'm not complaining it makes the car more fun to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
