my mk3 golf gti 16v

I admit that I don't know anything about photography
but hey, on display here is one of the last stock golf gti 16v mk3's left in Belgium I guess . Completely dealer serviced, previous owner was 60 year old women and also the first owner !, believe it or not I couldn't believe it myself . has 120000 km on the clock, not a lot of options, the best option offcourse is the fact that I can sit on RECARO's.

I agree that it stands a Bit high on its feet but lowering your car in belgium isn't easy with our idiotic laws, and it would cost me some more euro's which is the main reason that I am not doing it and I also like the fact that its one of few unmolested examples, and I want to keep it this way.
This is my first car but I hope I can control myself and not crash it straight away

Lovely! Looks great! Congrats!!!
That is the strangest pattern I've seen on any Recaros, but they're still very nice seats.

Keep it as it is. Unmolested hot hatches are increasingly rare.

Yes, they are. Just look at PoRsChEnUt.

Looks really nice, ripper! Keep her the way she is... I'd love an all-standard Golf VR6 at some point. Just because.

I don't like the idea of hot-hatches with engines bigger than 4 cylinders. I'd love to have a 147 GTA though, even knowing that V6 spoils the handling. Just because.

The Ford Focus ST has a 5 cylider engine and by what I've read it has great handling, same with the Audi 3.2 V6.

Oh and I like the Focus a lot. There goes my theory...
Audis don't count. There's only one Audi for me: Quattro SWB.

Engine mounted in the back, so weight isn't such a problem . Plus I can't see a mid-engined car as a hot-hatch.

I have determined that you can't handle an engine larger than 4 cylinders.

This golf need a LS7.

Well, I certainly don't like the looks but... every rule has an exception. Even McReis rules!
I prefer the looks of the 323ti though. But don't tell David or he'll get cocky.
