Looks like a 1.8 liter 8 valve....VIN # analysis would be a good way to get data

Thanks. But I am in Nigeria looking to get a Golf. Most of these are imported from Europe. How do I analyze the VIN?

European Golf engines could be 1.6 liters or even smaller. Google VW VIN Analyzer to find a tool online to decode the VIN. Also look into VW forums for more advice and info. We have VWVortex here in the US. Try to find one in your general region.
