It looks reasonable to me. The rust isn't actually too bad, although if you're planning on spraying it you'll need to have it repaired, but this shouldn't bother you if the current owner's sorting that for ya! The nearside rear door might aswell be replaced as it's dented aswell as quite badly rusted, it'll look nicer and probably cost less to repair that way, you might wanna get one with the trim on it too lol. If you're spraying it, the faded paint wont be a problem, but just so ya know, it's a problem with all pastel (ie; non-metalic) paintwork, especially red, it just dies lol.

Also, are all Golf's like that at the front end over there? as here in the UK only mk2 Jetta's had the rectangular headlamps. You also have the 'big bumper' model which was a facelift on mk2's after about 1990 I believe, I'm not too sure about this look myself, but it's certainly more modern looking!

On the whole though, it looks like a good buy!

So after all this hassle, you want another car?

Yes, all of our MK2 golfs have the square headlights, except for GTi's, they have the four circular ones.

Interesting, all of our's except the Jetta's, have circular one's....Normal 1.3litre Golfs etc have two lights, whilst GTI's and special editions have four (two standard and two main beam lights that resemble fog lamps!). My Golf Driver had them, which is kinda inbetween a standard 1.6litre and a GTI!
