I have the opportunity to buy one as my second car but I know absolutely nothing about them other than the fact that they came with a 1.8L motor. Can you tell me what I should look out for? I am going to check it out tonight...
Re: Please tell me everything you know about 1984 Rabbit GTI's (PDX Cabby)
the first link is dead, unfortunately... and I had been through the second link already. Thanks for the post.
Can you tell me what the specs are for the 1984 Rabbit though? Because on the site its the 1982 specs. Did all Rabbit GTI's come with the same engine? If so, what is the compression ratio and injection? mechanical or hydro head? For the tranny, I wonder if in 1984 they changed the R&P to 3.94 from the 3.89 in 1982.
