    VW Golf GTI 16Vs

    I was under the impression that these were near impossible to find in Australia, but it turns out there's about 4 for sale in aus at the moment.

    If this doesn't represent good value, nothing does.

    What are the VW GTi's like next to the 205s? Better build quality? That one looks fantastic - its on carsales if anyone wants to see it.

    i was under the impression that only the 8 valvers came out here
    i went for a run in a 16 valve model in england and it went very well
    i remember reading an article on them which stated that the 16 valve was a rocket but it was a pity only the 8 valve was getting released in aus
    there were only minor trim differences between the GTi and the normal one
    3 x '78 604 SL

    1 x '98 306 GTi6

    1 x secret project

    1 x '98 406 STDT troop carrier and i don't care if it stinks, i don't sniff it's arse Death by wank tank

    1 x '99 406SV 5spd wagon, time to burn more fuel

    1 x 1994 605 SV3.0

    Thats what I thought, that we only got the 8V engines. Maybe that engine is from a later model Seat or something? Or even an imported golf engine? Regardless, it seems like fantastic value. None of the interior quality hassles of a 205, with a little more grunt, and 4 doors.

    Could be a private import, to the best of my knowledge, VW didn't actually start bringing in Golfs back again until 1990 (under TKM) - and that car did have the 8V 1.8 4 cylinder motor.

    You might want to try asking on <a href="http://www.vwvortex.com/" target="_blank">the Vortex</a>, especially in the Aussie forum.

    The real pity in Aus, is we didn't get the 3 door GTI models. I would have loved a G60 3 door Mk2. The Mk3 did get 3dr, but it wasn't one of the sporty models.
    However VR6-and supercharged in a 3dr Mk3.. nice.-chris
