    Default FS 1989 205GTI - Sydney

    Hi Guys,

    I have been delaying making this post for about a week or so, as moving this car on is a pretty challenging/emotional thing for me.

    Some of you may know that I moved from Melbourne to Sydney at the end of last year, and we have now bought ourselves a beautiful place in North Avoca which we will be renovating over the next couple of years.

    The problem is that my new abode does not have a garage, and is also 300 metres from the beach. For a 205 GTI that is only being driven once every few weeks it just no longer adds up for me. I just can't stand the thought of it sitting out the front and slowly rusting away, so it's time that it goes to a new home.

    I purchased the car about 6 years ago, and after 2 years as a daily driver it was retired to the garage to be polished and admired. Here are some details of the car, and the work perfomed during my 6 years of ownership.

    1989 205 GTI Cherry Red
    220,000ks
    No tears or splits in the cloth upholstery.
    Interior in v.good nick, apart from the usual crack in the top of the instrument surround.
    Paint is quite good.
    Reco LH driveshaft at 190,000ks
    Head recon and timing belt at about 200,000ks
    Dyno'd 67.9kw at the wheels after head was done.
    Rear drums rebuilt, new cyliders etc at about 210,000ks
    Serviced every 5000ks during my ownership
    set of 5 15" wheels with 4 new Yoko C drives

    It is still on it's VIC rego (just renewed for 12 months), working in Sydney and living on the central coast does not allow me the time to get it changed over to NSW at the moment, which means that I will cancel the VIC rego when a deal is done and sell unregistered. Things that would be required for a blue slip that I can think of would be: Resealing the sump, new winderscreen washer motor, new hazard light switch fitted (supplied with car). But depending on your mechanic, there may be more or less that is required.

    I'm looking for $3200. I've included a few photos which I had on my work PC and will take some nicer ones on the weekend if needed.

    If you're interested send me a PM.

    I has a sad, and will go and cry now.....

    Very regretfully sold, to a top bloke from Victoria who will make sure that she is properly cared for.
