Bought as a "rescue" in 2014 and repaired for use by my older son as his first car. It was then passed on to my younger son. Was in daily use until end of October when we had a "fleet re-shuffle". Currently SORN. It's been a faithful old thing and I will be sad to see it go.
We originally bought it as insurance was among the cheapest we could find for young drivers. Also does a consistent 55 - 60 mpg.
MoT to October 2018.
Just had a service with oil/filter, air filter and fuel filter. Brakes checked, cleaned up and adjusted.
We've had it since 2014 (and about 146k). Work done in our ownership
New PAS pump and system flush
Gearbox completely rebuilt with correct diesel ratios
New clutch kit.
Front and rear dampers
Full cam belt kit
Front brake hoses
EGR valve blanked off and inlet manifold de-coked - Performance improved considerably. Engine seems very healthy and uses no oil
Cosmetically it's fairly good. No rot. It's not quite like other Arosas I've seen. I'm not sure whether it is a special edition or whether a previous owner has collected features from other models (GTI even Lupo?) as it has a smooth front bumper with a deeper section and a smooth rear bumper. The latter I'm pretty sure is Lupo and it's the scruffiest part of the car as the paint is coming off in a few areas revealing a previous blue colour.
Has 14" Seat alloy wheels fitted. Again, not sure if they are original fit or borrowed from an Ibiza, but they suit it and the overall effect is tasteful and factory. Front tyres are Firestone and were new at the end of last year. Rears have decent tread. There is a matching, full size spare.
Interior is again, above base model and in pretty good condition.
It's not fast and it's not refined but it runs well, is surprisingly fun to drive and cheap to run. No stereo fitted at present (though I can probably find one if the price is right).
Located near South Petherton, Somerset, just off A303
