This Mk3 Golf GTI was bought from Japan by a private importer. It has since remained with the same owner in Abu Dhabi. Since 2020 it has served as a reliable daily driver. Around 11,000 km were added here in the UAE. This Mk3 comes with the more desirable and powerful 2.0L 16 valve engine.
The GTI sports its original black paint. There have been no known accidents abroad and no accidents during ownership. The vehicle retains an entirely stock interior with the original Recaro cloth seats. Alongside an original exhaust and manifold. The most recent maintenance included a coolant and oil change.
