With my Polo breaking down on me late last year and not really spending much time on it this year due to getting married I decided recently to down tools and see what else is out there. House purchase and wedding have dominated the last few years, so being able to take a look for a new car was something I was looking forward to! I thought i'd narrowed my choice down to a mk2 Scirocco. maybe another Corrado but was happy trawling the usual places to get some inspiration. Anyway, I came across a Golf advertised on a local website in Oxford that is very quiet these days (even quieter than Gumtree!), I checked the mileage & MOT history and was put off by the mileage so left it. A week later (last Friday) i'd seen that it had been re-advertised at a much lower price. Fast forward a couple of hours and i'd had a chat with the owner, and learnt that he has had it since 2003 and bought off his brother who had it for a few years before that. He also told me that he'd had it serviced a couple of times a year and wasn't an enthusiast etc. Took it for a drive on Saturday morning, liked what I saw and did a deal! It's very original apart from 90's era wheels (may a dealer fit?!) and some 6x9's in the (broken) parcel shelf! Despite the mileage the interior is in decent condition for its age, requiring some trim inside and a bloody good clean inside and out. The worst piece of rot I can find is on the passenger door which i'm OK with as the chassis looks good to me. Pics to follow!
