Yeah he's adding an ED30 tax for sure.

My advice:

Take VCDS or some kind of OBD scanner with you.  If they won't let you scan it, walk away.

Also have a very careful gander underneath to make sure the pinch welds and other areas of the floor aren't buckled.  Have a good sniff around the bumper and body panel shut lines, front chassis legs for straightness and the rear floor for ripples.

It's easy to get excited by a clean exterior and overlook signs of neglect/abuse  :happy2:

Great advice Kev, i'm selling mine just now - hopefully to a non-messer!

Wow I'm always amazed at how well these prices are standing up.  I paid £8750 for my 58 plate Pirelli 5 years ago, at 49,000 miles!

I wonder what it's worth now at 130,000 miles!

Moving on are you GVK?

I paid £9K for mine 7 years ago with 70K on it.  It's a manual though, so probably would have been 10-11 if DSG.

Likewise, mine's on 160K now and probably not worth a lot  :grin:   It's worth more to me as a fun practical car than pennies in the bank though.
