******!!!!NOW FOR ROOFFFFLLLLEEEZZZ!!!!*****

 

£1 a tickets!

 

Never pay a taxi fare again!!

 

 

Anyone want this genuine GLF club stalwart?

MOT'd til 15/12/15

193k miles

4 decent tyres

Golf Gti interior

Runs well on WVO at 35p/litre and returns 55-60mpg.

6cd changer.

Can be supplied with "glf spec" engine map, and a walk through on how to tune. Currently runs mid 16 sec 1/4 miles

issues:

Drawing air into fuel lines. will start and drive but not great- I've tried new filters/ o rings etc to no avail.

All 4 dampers are ropey

Exhaust needs reconnected/welded

Brakes could do with a bleed.


Its no stunner, but with a bit of spanner action it'll no doubt potter on for another year.

£100

I can't be buying every VAG car 320touring sells, that would be a very dangerous precedent to set!

I wonder if the turbo gubbins would bolt onto the olop...

Engine swap!?

The exterior of this thing is as minging as the name (which I coined) suggests, a proper abandon-in-the-worst-part-of-town-without-fear machine, but inside it not at all unpleasant to be honest. And it drives REALLY well, and even after stepping out of the famous Xantia, I couldn't feel owt wrong with the ride or handling. Neil's a bit harsh on it I reckon. It deserves to live on. The fact it's worth 100 scrap makes it even more of a bargain for someone - a free car. If not, I think Skattrd should have it to re-engine his Sirocco. It'd be a shame to see it fragged.

Why is it worth £100 scrap, is it because Octavia Mk1 spares are still in demand?

Taxi-spec Octavia Mk1s ran til about 2010 I think, so I guess there are still loads of them working for a living.

Distance excuses mostly.

Being a vegetarian I would definitely be interested if the distance was shorter and I had any idea about re-mapping.

Much prefer tweaking things with spanners myself.
