In the early nineteen nineties, I owned this 1987 GTi...
I fitted a set of round 'export' headlights which I
think improved its appearance no end. They also made night driving much
easier. Both inner and outer lamps used H4 bulbs and one could opt for
just the outer pair or all four on dipped (which provoked headlamp
flashing from oncoming motorists) and on main beam all four were lit.
The headlamp kit was actually for a series I BX but worked
well with the series II. I also fitted a chin spoiler which made the
car look quite aggressive.
