The 1.6 K series will fit. The only snag is you wont find many early ones as like you say the other cars used Honda engines. I think the GTI your on about still used the Honda D series unit, so you will have to get an engine from a MK3 200 or a MK2 400 as long as it's not an auto. I myself think the Metro/100 with just the 1.8 in is very quick and no need to go the extra hog of the VVC but it's your choice.
