We're not the most active forum, but there's not many of these cars left to talk about. We had pretty much discussed and resolved every problem a mk2 could have and attempted every possible modification by about 2008. About that time, mk2s had fully depreciated and we had a rash of teenagers coming on board to ask the same old questions we'd answered a thousand times and we got to be rather impatient with such newbies. Those members who couldn't handle it have mostly moved on, probably too busy chastising their own adult children to get a job and move out of the house rather than waste time with automotive forums. The Millenials pretty much finished wrecking and demolishing the remaining stock of "marginal" mk2s and the values are now such that today's newbies have to be pretty serious and have the wherewithall to actually do things the right way. Most newbies now tend to pop on and off the forum, using search to find solutions in the archives. But those of us old-timers who remain have mellowed in our old age. We know the search function can lead you down a million rabbit holes if you don't know the exact search terms to input so if your answer doesn't pop up in the first page of results, go ahead and ask. Now the newbies have to be patient with us because we can't always remember how we fixed something twenty years ago.
Welcome to the weird and whacky world of the 82's.
A lot of parts are 82 specific (ex. vacuum dizzy, headlight relays etc.)... just an FYI.
Lot's of great info here. This community is unreal. I'm so glad to be back after hanging around MK4 owners for a couple years
