Is that an interest, or just an observation?  :wink:

Everything's gotten more expensive in the past year or so.  I've been following 718 Boxster prices and they are @£10k up on Spring 2020.  Inevitably the rarest / youngest / lowest mileage / best examples will attract the best prices, so £10k+ doesn't seem crazy and is still below the average used car price (now £16k I read the other day).

Agreed I turned down a 911 997.2 C4S 2009 in Feb last year it was £36k with 55000 miles on clock. I looked today and they are £50k plus for similar examples!!!

Sadly no as I dislike 5 door Golfs intensely  :wink:

I was merely observing your asking price is a fair one in light of some more expensive choices!

I would recommend a proper for sale advert if you're serious in selling it though.  People aren't going to come running and queue outside your door just because it's a Pirelli.  'Feeler' threads are usually ignored as no one likes vague when it comes to parting with money.

Agree with Pudding in my opinion a 5dr Golf shouldn't even be an option yet now all new Golfs are only available in a 5 door.... Crazy!

What's wrong with a 5dr?? Can't beat practicality with the feels of a quick car. Best of both world in my opinion.

Having owned a mk4 xr3i, mk4 rs turbo and a audi a3. I'd say having a 3dr when you have more than 2 people in is a right ball ache

Had a mk4 gti 3dr and it was a faff getting the car seat in and out. Have a 5dr mk5 now.

Looks wise, the 3dr is always going to win.

I remember back in the olden days Langey from Max Power had his rear door handles removed so his 5dr mk2 looked a tiny bit more 3dr.
