According to Dr dubs scirocco page all GL's were 1600. all the info for this suggests its an 1800 though, any thoughts?
My understanding is that all mk2 autos were 1800
The early models were 1588 as mine is - 82 build year.

We should get these rare motors together for a shoot, they all seem to be Diamond Silver for some reason... Gladys is an 82 Auto also.

Not too far away - Spalding Lincolnshire. According to Howmanyleft.com there are 2 x 1.6 GL Auto's and 1 x 1.8 Gl Auto left on the road...

i wouldnt fully trust that how many are left, it all depends what the person put on the v5 when it was originally registered. a lazy person probably would only put scirocco
