Shadow blue VW Golf GTI 5 door. 2006 (56).

Sold
VW Golf GTI 5 door.  2006 (56).  Shadow blue. 93,000 miles.
£4995.00
Location: Colchester, Essex
Collection Only

Seven years ago, I searched for months to find a GTI this good.

Factory fitted upgrades:
DSG auto gearbox with paddle change, electric sunroof, heated leather seats, multi-function steering wheel, highline dash computer, 18” VW Monza alloy wheels, beautiful shadow blue metallic paint.

Standard features:
Electric one-touch windows all round, dual zone automatic climate control air conditioning, radio/CD with six speakers, automatic lights and wipers, tyre pressure monitoring system, full remote one-touch closure, alarm/immobiliser.

History:
First registered Dec 2006.  4 previous owners.  Current (non-smoker) owner since 2011.  Always garaged.   

Service History:
MOT until March 2019 (no advisories).
Serviced in February 2018.
Cambelt, water pump and DSG service completed 2017.
Aircon compressor and pressure switch replaced, regassed and working perfectly.
Run exclusively on Shell V Power fuel and fastidiously maintained by VW specialists. 
I have a very comprehensive file, including HPI and receipts from when I bought it. 

Condition:
Bodywork is in excellent condition with no corrosion, even on the infamous front wing!
There is a scratch on the tailgate (see photo) and the inevitable minor stone chips.
Goodyear Eagle F1 assymmetric 3 tyres are in good condition, including the unused space saver spare.  Tread is min 4mm front, 6mm rear.
The 18" Monza wheels were originally diamond cut but were powder coated in 2012 to prevent “white worm” corrosion.  These would benefit from another treatment as they’ve started to bubble around the valves (I’m being picky!)

It might sound like a cliché but this car really drives like new.  The car has never been modified.    The DSG gearbox is smooth and fault-free.  The engine is quiet and clean-running.  It comes with two keys.  It’s all set for many more problem-free miles.  I’m based in Essex but regularly visit Kent & Surrey. I'm only selling because my teenagers inherited their legs from a giraffe.

Now sold.  I'm missing it already.  :(

Potential buyer has had to pull out so this car is still for sale.  I've put it on Auto Trader but it really deserves to be with a GTI enthusiast.
