I work just down the road from there and have seen that car many times.

They've changed the wheels from the polished ABT ones which were on previously - these were badly kerbed the last time I saw them.

Still looks awful IMO

Damn dealers! Stick on a bodykit and they think its worth the earth. The same deal for a Bora back when I was shopping. It was a 2002 V6 4Motion, 8k on the clock, full Oettinger bodykit (valances rather than full bumpers though), 19" BBS CHs. Car started out at £21,995, last time I saw it it was at £16,995 - 4 months later!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that car is pretty much list price right?

I mean,

car is £17700

Wheels £ 2000 (roughly - vw prices)

leather £ 1600 (roughly)

Chipped £ 600 (or more)

bodykit £ 1500 (???)

suspen £ ?? (it looks lowered)

So give or take, they are advertising the car at list price with it being 6months old.

Yes it's alot of money, but I reckon that's pretty much the norm with any approved dealers..

Correct?

Out of interest, how much were leather Recaros as a factory option on a Golf? As they were £2050 on a Bora

Thought they might be cheaper on the car with the more sporty image. Either way £2k for seats is mental, can't believe people spec them (no matter how nice they are). So glad they are free on used cars [;)]

That car reminds me of the red 03 reg 1.8T advertised at Lincoln Volkswagen. It's got leather recaros, cruise, winter pack and R32 wheels but 13K miles. Asking price..£19,995..are they for real?

How stupid if you traded in that car you would get 5,6 grand under that price, and who said you could never get the money back on your mods ???

MY god, 2 grand for leather! It is fitted in my second hand one, nce nick, and I reckoned it added about £200 to the price! Car's even cheaper than I thought then!!

Reminds me of a mate who bought a 928 Porsche a few years back, 1985 model, with full electric leather memory seats, leccy sunroof, aircon, and a manual gearbox! He paid 4 grand for the car, and when we looked at the original brochure and price list the guy gave him with it, those options alone cost over 6 grand new!! Leather electric seats were £3600, ..IN 1985!!

Car was excellent, by the way, totally relaiable as well! Best bargain Supercar.......??
