Hi folks - just joined as I’m in the market for a TT and looking for some advice.

Always remember the first MK1 I saw and decided I was going to get one some day. That day is now here but tricky to find a good example on the usual channels.

Hoping some expertise here will be able to guide me.

Hi Psychologica :thumbsup:

I'm new here too, was hoping there would be some kind of classified section but can't seem to find anything!

Happy MK1 hunting :)

To be honest we can't compete with some of the sites that are open to anyone, Pistonheads would be the best place to look

Thanks for the welcomes! I have finally made a purchase, a Moro Blue MK1 225. Currently sitting at the mechanics awaiting a full service and once over on the haldex so I have to wait another 11 days before I can get behind the wheel again.

@Cloud - is that a dolomite grey? I was looking into them, such a great colour.

Yes, it's Dolomite Grey. That's the colour I really wanted and couldn't believe it when one came up for sale locally, as they're not that common. I did a seat swap and now have red leather - a perfect colour combo! 8)

Well done on finding a good example in dolomite, I looked at a few but none in the right spec / condition / price-range.


Only a couple of it sat at the mechanics since I bought it, can't wait to get it cleaned up and get that leather treated (these pics don't do it justice).
