I'm considering buying this car, you may recall that this is the 2nd GTI I've been looking at. The first one has some issues that the seller is trying to get sorted. I found this one, same price, looks to be in nice condition.

Find as much as you can wrong with it, please.

I didn't see any major flaws on the exterior, but I did see that both front doors' door cards need some love, the fabric is coming off them. Also, the shifter knob needs replaced.

From my previous query, I know that I need to look out for chain tensioner and water pump issues.

What else? I know it's no 914, but I also know that a lot of us Porsche guys have/had many VWs as well!
