Officially this is my second car, my first car was a failed attempt to buy a non running, project E36 325i Coupe as my only car. It was a big mistake to buy it but also a big mistake to sell it. 

 So this Mk3 Golf is my first working car. I got it via a friend who told me that another friend is selling his car and would give it to me cheap. So that is how i got it. 

 I use it as a daily driver and am going to keep her in good running condition. It needs to work 24/7, so i won't do anything crazy with it.  

 There will be no big modifications made to the car. I will install more modern speakers, the new head unit from my wish list, the tachometer i already have and redo the headliner.  

 Future plans will be lowering springs (max. lowering 1 inch), some OEM VW wheels, installing partially painted bumpers, the bigger radiator and dual fan setup from the Mk3s with the bigger engines so that it runs a bit cooler. 

 Bigger future plans will be to buy another car for fun activities (Trackdays and driving courses). As of 17th October 2017 i sold my MK3 Golf for a fairly good price.
