Golf GTI


Year 1997
Mileage 30685
Colour Red
Owners 1

A stunning Volkswagen Golf GTI with only 1 private owner from new and just 30685 miles.

Being offered on the open market for the very first time since new, this particular example is in a wonderful preserved condition and is complemented by a very comprehensive history file, including the original order form and bill of sale, stamped service book, every tax disc since new and every MOT and a host of bills and receipts...everything, from a replacement bulb has been documented and kept. Supplying dealer number plates are still fitted front and rear, along with rear window sticker and key rings. This has got to be the lowest mileage and ownership that is currently on the market.


Finished in Tornado Red, the paint finish on all panels is excellent and still boasts a uniform and vivid shine, and only a few very small, well touched in stone chips are visible upon close inspection. The panel fit and gaps are linear straight and as they should be. The car still wears all of its factory fitted panels. All window surrounds and bumper inserts are still deep Black and show no signs of fade. A couple of very small, light marks on the plastic trim are barely noticeable. Overall, a stunning, un-abused and cherished example with wonderful originality.


The interior is in excellent condition. The seat bolsters are still tight and the cloth is showing only minimal signs of being used. The carpet, door cards, plastics and headlining are again, excellent. All 4 electric windows are in full working order, as are the electric door mirrors. The optional, factory fitted electric sunroof both tilts and slides with ease and the factory protective covering is still in place on the sunroof blind. A Toad alarm system was fitted from new as a dealer fitted option along with a CD player with auxiliary output...both of these items are shown on the original bill of sale.

Wheels and Tyres:

Fitted with the factory original "Long Beach" BBS alloy wheels, the wheels are in an un-restored condition and still retain a very nice shine. A couple of the wheels have got some light marks, however they are original. All tyres are very good and the space saver wheel is unused.

Engine and Transmission:

A very clean engine bay is home to the completely standard and unmodified 2.0 power plant. Having been regularly serviced and having covered just 30685 miles, the car runs and drives like new and is completely free from any "boy racer" add ons. The 5 speed gearbox is very smooth and precise.

History File: 

First registered on the 3rd January 1997 by Lookers VW of Burnley, the original sales invoice and order form match the V5 document and confirm the 1 owner from new. The original handbook wallet is present and contains all the correct literature including the service book. Operating instructions for the dealer fitted Toad alarm system are also present. Every tax disc and MOT certificate completes a very comprehensive history file.

2 original keys and 2 alarm fobs are provided. MOT until January 2017...
