History
I am the third owner, no accidents reported, some depressing hail dents and general minor...ish cosmetic TLC needed. No rust though!
Any recommendations for anything would be awesome! I'm completely new to the Volkswagen groups so I'm a super newbie.
Here are some pics I've taken so far. I have an older phone so I'm sorry and I have shampooed the car and done a deep clean on it since these photos, but here these are for now. Feel free to tell me if you see anything out of line or things that are questionable:

54376

Yes, I did connect that loose yellow wire by the distributor and oil filter:

Modifications

Drivetrain
FWD 4 speed
Interior
Maroon/Burgundy colored everything plus a previous owner's tachometer.
Exterior
Sunbright yellow, needs some refreshment due to rock chips and other fun little things like hail damage.
Audio
Original radio, dying speakers included.
Lighting
Square facelifted headlights? (Not sure if that's the right thing to put under "lighting" lol)
Exhaust
Some type of modified exhaust or just a welded-on exhaust tip from previous owner, not entirely sure.
Suspension
OEM style far as I know
Wheel and Tire
OEM size but yellow like car because of previous owner.
