Model: Golf Cabriolet Quartett (GTI)

1987-1993

Model Information

 The Quartett model allowed perspective Cabriolet buyers to choose from 64 possible color combinations.

The Quartett model was rarely referred to as a Quartett in the UK until modern times.  This model, historically speaking, was referred to as simply GTI.  The Quartett model was only sold in the UK as a GTI.

Only the interior/boot/carpet color combination could not be changed.  For example, if you chose a white interior, it came with black carpet and a white top boot.  The wheel could also not be changed (it was colored-matched to the car) unless you opted for a different color as an accessory (i.e. additional cost).
