Well I think my hunt is over...and it's looking likely to end in another mk3.
Just been to look at one....16v gti
FSH (mostly VW), loads of reciepts, previous tax discs/MOT certs, etc - real nice bloke too which inspires muchos confidence.
3 door, Full heated leather, air con, sun roof, pioneer headunit/6 cd
changer, computer thats shows mpg etc, leather steering wheel....all
Recently £600 spent...new brakes, new exahaust, new battery...some other bits and bobs.
He was originally asking 3500 for it, which seemed a little
high.....but i asked if he would come down, and he says he'd take
2900.....which i think is good! Might try for 2800 but i wont feel
robbed if he says no
Only bad thing - drivers side rear arch has been scuffed and does need to be painted.
Thats actually about all thats wrong!! It really is immaculate.
As much as I have wanted a mk4, i dont wana wipe myself out in buying
one....because by the time its insured thats all my money gone, and i
have to be sensible as ive got another year of uni to go. In getting a
mk3 i pay half the price, but by no means get half the car.
Not a single mk4 ive looked at has had the miles, spec, or condition of this mk3!!
I drove it, big smiles all round lol
So going for a second look on monday so my dad can give it a proper check....but think i've found myself a car.
Cheers for all the help i've had in this thread.
