The missus now wants a family car so the Bora no seems surplus to requirements, just wondering what people thinks its worth

2000"X" reg Bora V6 4motion

161k miles with full massive service history, main dealer then specialist

drives like a car with 20k miles on

2 owners from new inc. me

tax till march'11

MOT till september'11

overall condition of the car is good with only a couple of dents and no major scratchs

has had an alternator and battery within the last 12 months

totally standard apart from the leather i have fitted

last and only previous owner had the car from new for 10 years

car was privatly brought into the country direct from VW by the first
owner as a parrallel import

Service history with the car is very extensive including 12 stamps,
majority are Dane VW in chester then VW specialist. to go with the 2
service books are, 2 inch and a half thick folders from various garages
of invoices for any and every bit of work it has had done from tyres at
kwick-fit to £300-£400 services at Dane VW and even one for 49p for a
bulb. Folder of Vag-com reports to acompany the service history and lots
of the previous owners notes to go along with them.

I even have the orginal papers of import which include details of what money was saved by bringing the in privetly and orginal German plates

thanks

Rich

I'd say about £1500-1800 depends on overall condition although.

Big engined petrols aren't the flavour at the moment so depends on buyers.

The boots plenty big enough and its quick, so when you need to dash for that kiddies toilet break it'll be plenty quick for that!

Thinking of 7 seater or MPV type car? The mpg in those including diesels aren't that good as they are pretty heavy.

Our Zafira Cdti only does 30mpg urban due to stop start, something to think about?

Good luck.

yeah mpv she's after.

it wouldnt be too bad tbh mate, she would have that for nursery and uni, furthest she goes is 5miles.

i would downsize to somethin little that am not tempted to mess with, i.e piece of poop, then i could carry on playin with my track car with any spare cash

i think it would be worth more than this myself, my missus bought a 3.2V6 vectra GSi a couple years ago when money was tighter than it is now and despite having a large petrol engine, a vauxhall badge and a vectra badge it was still nearly 5k.. personally i think its a hell of a car for the money as its lovely to drive, goes quite well and despite what lord clarkson says handles pretty well too.

add in the 4WD, the VW badge and the fake golf(bora) badge i could see this being worth more than that, especially having the larger boot.

the cheapest 2.8 4motion golf on the trader is £2650, i'd say easily more like that sort of money but obviously conditoin and spec play a big role in the valuation.

i had a look round there and pistonheads and i think the biggest factor people will look at is the milage, anyone in the know i.e here will understand that the milage really is not an issue. others will see 161k and run a mile even though it has more history than America

i thought around 2k, which its on pistonheads for but had next to no interest apart from some guy who wanted me to export it (might have to take him up on that[:D])

Not up on the pound at the minute but in Euro they are still worth plenty depending on condition and spec. That said there are only about 5 or 6 here in Ireland which would make them that bit rarer.(Thank god I have one so.lol)

I reckon you should be seeing in or around the 4.5 to 5.5k
