OK, I may have a chance to pick up a 87 GLi 16v from a friend. He has had 13 mk2's over the past 3 years and this was his old car and the nicest one he has had. It has :
-very nice paint and very little-to-no rust.
-16v w/ few mods including Nology wires, some kind of exhaust
-dent in rear pass. side door
-Seats from a 91 Golf GL, he swapped the recaros into his golf.
-otherwise mint interior
Problems
-He says it keeps blowing the fuel pump fuse
, but it will run. Anyone know what would cause this? I'm thinkin a bad ground but, I suck at wiring and electrical stuff. How much would it be to rewire this car? Also is 200 bucks a good deal for it? Thanks, sorry to sound like a newbie

200 bucks is a good deal from what i can see, without looking or checking hte car out mechanically. however 200 is cheap even for a beat car.
fuel pump fuse blowing, could be wiring grounding out, too small of a fuse etc.
rewiring the car is not something you want to do.

Re: Couple GLI questions (The_Hamster)

Well, I really dont need another VW(we have 3 VWs and a BMW) but I want another MK2. I may not have too much time for it, and dont want to spend tons of cash rewiring the car. I dont need to put the car on the road, but it could be a little project. I may be able to get it for closer to $100 if I do a little work to his car too http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif Do you think this car has a bad fuel pump relay

there is probably a short somewhere....you need ot find it or else you could be stranded....$200 for a 16v in decent shape is a deal...
