Hi,

I'm looking to buy my first golf.

I've found this golf on autotrader -

Click Here

It's not a turbo but has been modified with an exhaust system and induction kit.

It's got a lot of extra's, i.e. 18" alloys, bumpers and skirts etc.

What do you think of the car and price???

Thanks for all the help

[:D]

I've emailed the seller to see what the exact engine spec is as I've got a feeling it is a 1.8 turbo 150bhp.

If it is the 150bhp 1.8T what do you think of the price/car?

jon e00 if its something you like ask the guy how long he's been trying to sell it for. If its been a while you know he's asking a lot for it... (it sounds a lot to me but it has a few extras you want.) If the car is something you like and are interested make a low bid and see what he says..

Its not a limited edition.

Mines got 86K but runs like a dream. If its serviced and looked after then it could be a good buy.

100k on VW is not really nothing to worry about IMO, if it was a astra, focus id tell you to run a mile.

Jon. you got mail.

I bought mine with 100k on it as far as I'm concerned as long as it's got full history and looks in good condition they are normally a bargain as lots of people don't like the stigma of a high miler

I've bought Golfs with over 100k and i know a lot of other people who have as long as they have got main dealer service history you don't have anything to worry about.. Its just a bigger number thats all.

If the Car is being sold by a trader/dealer most of the time that car has come out of an aution and they are normally lease plan cars with have to be serviced in a main dealer.
