Well, it looks like I'll be heading overseas in May/June of this year, so it will be time to sell the Pug-a-lug.
I'll most more details here in due course, but for those who are interested in picking up a Gun-metal grey Series 3 GTi, here are some details.
Good points :
New front dampers
New front bushes
Newish tyres (bought in Oct 2004 from memory).
Front bonnet respray
New tailgate, rear panel and bumber, as well as new red reflective panel
Full service history.
Not-so-good points :
Interior isn't so flash (steering wheel leather is cracked, drivers seat is a bit worn down.) All other interior trims are still in good condition (i.e. no cracking).
I've had the car since 1998, and I've always looked after it from a mechanical viewpoint.
The price I ultimately want for it will depend on how much I spend on it over the next few months. There are a few areas which need some work before I was planning on letting it go.
Start saving your pennies!
