Hi guys,

I'm looking at buying a 1.8t... I love the anthracite grey but I've not
been able to find a 1.8t one anywhere... until today! (yay)

Anyway just wondering what people thought on this as I'm gonna look at it over the weekend and possibly P/X my 1.8n/a!

It's up for £6296.00

2000 W Gti 1.8t

Anthracite grey

45k

5dr

Recaros (cloth)

Climatronic

Traction control

E/sunroof

Recent cam belt change

Cheers [:D][Y]

sounds ok.

I paid £8000 for my black 5 door 1.8t with 40k and fsh 1 year and 7 months ago.

If i were you id go for a later version though as the 2000 model is likely to be an ARZ engine code, which means no sport turbo and 195/200bhp from a remap. The later AUM have the k03s turbos and get 210bhp from a remap.

Thanks for the advice - I was really after
a 2001 model as it's not drive by wire - do they also come with the
K03s? If not I could always get one fitted I think.
Unfortunately my budget won't stretch past this - infact I was only
after spending £6k lol butthis is the first I've seen in grey for a
while now!

When viewing, the obvious things to look
for are air-con/fans working, windows aren't dropping/loose? Errr
what else lol?

Really?! [:|]

I've had a few people, I think you included say about getting a 2001 model as it will be AUM...

If it's that much better, maybe I'll hold out - I've seen a few around but they are wrong colour / wrong spec [:(]

Any I'm a fussy barsteward [:p]

For that kind of money i'd rather have a higher mileage aum as then it can be chipped to 230 ish easily, to get an arz or agu to this figure will cost a lot more. I'm also someone who doesn't like low mileage cars, i spoke to some guy the other day selling a 98 ibiza cupra 16v had something like 34k on the clock but had NOT been serviced in the 5 years he'd owned as it was serviced when he bought it at 25 so wasn't due another till 35k !.

Found the one you're thinking of on the trader (omega cars ?) and it don't look too bad actually, maybe i've been tainted about prices !

I know it's silver but how about this one http://www.proautos.co.uk/cardetail.asp?id=52 should be aum too

Yeah, that's the one mate. Think it might be AUM? I really
love the Grey! Will ring them up tomo and get em to check the
engine code!

The Silver one looks good mate, I've got a silver
one at the mo so I've got no prob with that and it's also the spec I'm
after... thank's for that! [Y]

Now all I gotta do is sell my n/a! Just putting some pics together so I can put it on the trader tonight! [:D]

Cheers mate, was looking at some of those, but as I said I'm very picky hehe

I've put my car up on there now so with any luck I'll sell it soon and have some money to spend [:D]

You could yes and this is what i've done, if you want to go this route you might be better off with an arz as you can get more out of the later ecu's for the same mods

That's nice, but a bit too modded for my liking [:p] Also it looks different from when I last saw it!

It's more fun to start from scratch!! [;)]
