This car is like a rough girlfriend. Treats you well but your pretty embarrased to be seen with her, let alone in her.
Bought this as I thought I would be sensible when I owned the 2.3 V5 also advertised here. I thought it would come in even more useful now I got another very thirsty car. However, basically I simply don't use it enough to spend money on it taxing it and insuring it.
It runs spot on, the bodywork lets it down though. I didnt buy it for it to be pretty, I bought it to get me from A-B, to move stuff with etc. It's done all of that, drove up to Manchester and back in a day a couple of weekends ago in it (600 mils trip). Never misse's a beat and it did the 600 mile trip on a tank of fuel (roughly 42 quid at todays prices).
118k (these engines are pretty bullet proof though)
No options whatsoever, apart from a worn steering wheel and a free handbrake
TDI, either 90bhp or 110bhp. I confess I have never bothered to check.
Fast enough for a diesel engine.
Tax is up now, gonna get another 6 months for it.
Tyres are all legal, one will need changing in about 5k miles.
About 9 months MOT
56 miles per gallon
Also comes with a back seat, wipers, a fully functioning windscreen and a carpet which needs hoovering, you just can't buy that kinda thing elsewhere.
Oh, and it has full service history, only the last one which I did myself as I'm a scrooge. (Cost £32 to service the oil, oil filter and air filter).
A couple of dents, but the dents come with a history. The girlfriend of the previous owner kicked it a couple of times. Adds character.
A hole in the front bumper, from someone who reversed into me with a towbar!
A major scratch in the rear bumper where I decided to drive up a wall (was a good idea at the time!)http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y63/grdesign/restore4.jpghttp://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y63/grdesign/restore6.jpghttp://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y63/grdesign/restore2.jpg
Based in Devon, looking for around £1000 as these engines still pull a premium price and I know the bodywork isnt great, it's not even good.
PM for more info.
