​Hi my names Aaron i recently acquired a 1997 radiant red escort GTI.

I'm 27 from Scunthorpe I've got 3 kids. I work as a national newspaper distributor so driving is my work and now my pleasure.

When i got the it had 53.677miles on the clock unsure if this is genuine as only got around the last year service history other than the first 6 service stamps. This states there was 39.000miles in 2003.

Welcome to the club. Very nice example of a GTI you have there and it looks like the mileage could well be genuine. Great engine in those as well.

Welcome to the forum,
When you get a momment please join photobucket or a similar image hosting website then you can upload some full size images of your motor and link them to your thread here on the forum, also check out DMB graphics for some ford badge overlays http://www.dmb.uk.co...es-gel-overlays
I reckon the mileage would be genuine, I had a 1997 toyota starlet before and in 2009 it had 48,000 miles on the clock.
The one thing I would check 5hough is the timing belt its usually changed based on mileage but due to age it would be due changing if its still on its factory built one

I also had an Escort as my first car, god how I loved it. Though my little one was a 1.6 90 bhp petrol bought from Netherland. But it sure did 0-60 in 8.2 :D

This model has a few tweeks with the air intake valve known as the IGR valve (if it revs by itself you should change this part immediatly). - only european MK5 models with the Zetec engine. I personally had this problem and it cost me 50$ from Ebay. Anyway this car is great I would change it anytime with my curent car if I could.
