Hi...hey...hows it going.

was surfing over on the aircooled vzi forums and found a link over to these ones, timing couldnt be better to be honest as i am about to join the bretherin and buy myself a mk4.

had a chat with a few people and the local dealership and now the search is on for a 5door 4motion in black. so until then i guess i am a wannabe but from reading posts i can see i'm in the right spot which is a good thing as i'm easily led astray

budgets around the 10-12k area so i will let you know how i get on with it all. incidentally, when i spoke to the dealer and they hunted the network he told me at present there is only 1 five door in black in the system. not a bad thing, except i fancy leather....and this one has cloth, to which he then told me finding a 4motion 5 door with leather is almost a mythical beast? anyone confirm or deny this for me? i dont want to settle for cloth if there are plenty of moo filled dubs out there

other than that, hi, happy to be here :D

Welcome...There are plenty moo filled 4 motions out there! You may need to wait a while to get one from a VW dealership, but there should be quite a few on autotrader andf the bay!

Wouldn't that make it a 4Mootion?
[:D] with that responce alone i can tell i'm gunna fit in jusssssst fine lol

thanks for the welcome guys, looking forward to ownership.

ive had various rides throughout my illustrious car owning career, dub wise a mk4 polo and a new beetle have been the only visits to the vw pool (i'm assuming the 18's i still have from my newbie are gunna slot onto the 4mootion......i'd better stop saying that...motion...motion...)

driven various powerful cars, some with turbos, some v8 but nothing like the 4motion going by the threads ive been reading. so got myself booked into a test drive into a blue 5door for a looksee, cant see me being disappointed [:D]

Firstly, welcome.

Secondly, that dealer is an idiot.

Lots of 4 motions are 5 door and a large proportion have leather (or even better, Recaro leather).

Check out Autotrader & go for a private purchase if you're confident enough.

Just done a search on the VW used car site and I have found at least 16 Black, 5 door 4moo's with leather interior through out the country. 29 matches in total (cant specify the 3 or 5 door)

which site is this? a link would be helpful fella

speaking of the dealer, he's still on the hunt, although i think i may well be chopping them out of the equasion as i seem to be having better luck looking for the car myself although nothing dead on as yet (budget is 10-12k)

Smack him around the head with something very hard and heavy. The man is a liar.

VW Approved Used Clicky

IMO you don't just want leather, you want RECARO leather, a ?2k option
when new but quite common. The difference is quite clear, you will
notice the headrest is sunken into the body of the seat more and they
are stamped Recaro. They also have bigger side bolsters. Good luck, its
a great car (Im an ex 02 Bora 4Motion / Diamond Black / Black Leather
Recaros owner)

firstly, thanks [;)]

secondly, beginning to see the bigger picture

beginning to discover that now, i was however unaware of the recaro option until you just mentioned it - is this going to be a toughie to find? i will hold out for leather recaro if theres a good percentage of cars around

i'm beginning to lean toward the private purchase now to be honest, for what sits on the forecourt at ?12.5k i can get more for my money privately for sure. will miss the chance of a warranty but maybe i should live life on the edge a little.....or even buy a warrant package from vw...although i suppose thats more of a good view than on the edge [:D]

Depends on the kind of pimp you are!! [:O] [;)]

I personally like the LOOK of the leathers better than the look of the recaro leathers, but then having recaro's myself, I know they are a much better seat to be seating yer bum in!
