Cool

Still the car I loved the most - great fun, great lift-off oversteer (still remember a couple of terrifying moments on A1 slip roads....), fast enough, easy to maintain.

Mine was a black three-door, H228HFH, big bumper, standard other than deep dish TSW 3-spokes, smoked indicators, small colour coded eye brow spoiler - where are you now...? Lovely.... People used to stop me in the street to try and buy it off me....no kidding.

I'll try and fish out a photo...from a time before digital photos!!

A blast from the past eh? This is a friends car he borrowed the mop and set to work on it, the roof was a little pink but looking sweet now.

I think your Black one is no more. It was due for tax 2008 and has not been

Tragedy if it's gone - it was immaculate in my time. I bought it at 3 years old and about 40k miles for 8k if I remember rightly. Chopped in my Astra SXi for it. Then chopped the Golf in for an Impreza. The Golf stayed as a daily driver for the dealer who loved it so much (some place down in Ilford....can't remember what it was called).
