We all know what happens when you chop the roof off a car. You lose half the body stiffness and the chassis twists, moans and turns to jello with any hard driving. So what was Volkswagen thinking when they took their most iconic hot hatch and chopped the roof off?

Take a moment and imagine the sound of that awesome EA888’s burbling exhaust unhindered by a roof. Every ‘pop’ and ‘burble’ coming through with full volume with every shift. That was the inspiration behind the GTI cabriolet.

However, this isn’t the first time VW has taken the roof off the GTI though it was badged the GLI at the time. The MKI Golf cabriolet enjoyed much success during the decade that it was produced. Even now, a few fine examples can still be spotted driving around our local streets.

The entire experience from registering my car on OneShift to the handing over to the dealer was very pleasant. The process at OneShift was efficient and transparent. Special thanks to RenAi from OneShift who was very detailed and helpful.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
