Volkswagen Polo GT TDI 130
A rare model Polo which is a great all round small car which has never let us down on many long journeys. Sad to see this little one go but we are looking for £1500. This car is power to weight an incredible performer and just eats motorway miles, but is agile round the city and economical both ways, lowered by 15mm on sports suspension it has next to no body roll on cornering. This PD engine runs really smooth and the turbo whistles beautifully, I've seen these engines hit over 300,000 miles no problem.
The drivers seat needs attention as the fabric has worn where the bucket wraps round, just wear and tear from getting in and out and there is a small supermarket door ding in the passenger door, apart from that everything is good. Some signs of age obviously. I'm aware its a short MOT, but not selling for that reason. You can see there isn't anything wrong mechanically, its never failed and MOT and won't next time. Viewings welcome, I'll take you for a drive in it. Make your own mind up.
*I have some more photos to upload and just working with Club Polo support team to get those on. Its had a large amount of time and effort put into it; its probably had £1500 spent on it in the last year alone. Apart from the stereo upgrade as described below, I've kept the car completely factory (vanilla). Any replaced parts are VW. But I always thought it would look good with 2 rally lights either side of the reg plate, and two back stripes up the middle. Maybe its time for a revamp...
The wheels as factory fit are 16" Montreal 2 found on the Mk4 Golf V5 and GTI, as the engine was used in Golf and Passat variants amongst others (Audi etc), in fact the majority of the workings of this Polo come from Golf and I have found over the years this adds greatly to the quality of those premium parts over standard Polo parts. The wheels, suspension, gearbox, engine, transmission, turbo, speaker system, seats are all Golf and it shows.
