How much is the car?I'm quite looking forward to it actually.
Oh by the way it is due for it's annual service. They said the price would go up ?350 if I want it with the service. My friend said I could take it to Awesome GTi for a service if I take it without and could get a better price...
It has low mileage and heated leather seats. Seen pictures and it really does look immaculateIf it's a private sale, as it needs a service, and if the cambelt hasn't been done, try and knock it down to ?6750.
Or, 7k with a service, something like that.
7.5k is a bit steep. Trade in value for it would be ?6500 in excellent condition.
If they won't budge, I would walk away.
The only things that would up the price to 7.5k would be leather, climate might add a bit of value, but not that much and sat nav also would add value. Winter pack add's a bit of value but again, not much.
Has it got any of them?
The cambelt is 60k or 6 years. They can go up to 120k so VW says, but I wouldnt risk it.I wouldn't worry too much about the mileage, 30k in 5yrs isn't particularly suspect, a lot of people dont do many miles (myself included). I'd rather buy a slightly older lower mileage example than do what i did, buy a newer higher mileage one and find that although the engine was sound, things like suspension bushes etc were at the end of their days.
Cambelt isn't due until at least 60 or 80k as far as i remember, dont think theres a time limit on that mileage??
The engine itself is pretty damn bulletproof, the typical odds and sods VW parts may cause an issue. Window regulators, coil packs, blah blah blah.... but the engine should be sound.
You all exicted now then!?Yeah, I'm not worried about the mileage at all. The reason why it's low is because they both work in Brum so catch the tube to and from work. and if they do ever go out, they always go in the bf's new car. (BMW)
Gf has a Polo so really the GTi is just sitting there.
Not had a cambelt change yet, not due for another 20 odd thousand miles.
I might just get a new one when I have it serviced, just in case!
Yes E36 I am going to buy it!! Going back down on Tuesday to pick it up
