The arrival of the new 850 leaves this surplus to requirements. Mot expires on the 21st September.

It's done about 210k but still seems to work ok. According to the trip computer it gets over 50mpg on pizza duties, which can't be bad. Performance is somewhere between "adequate" and "sufficient". It's fairly presentable for a cheap Golf and has escaped the tints and 20" alloys that seem to afflict most of them.

It has a towbar and some silly stickers.

When the subframe let go earlier this year it got a brand new subframe, a pair of bottom arms and four new tyres. The tyres are Continental, not ditchfinders, and are pretty much as new. Soon after that it got new inner and, I think, outer track rod ends and the tracking set. It also has new bottom ball joints, which are being preserved from wear by the tried and tested method of keeping them in a box.

It has an interior, quite decent if you like that sort of thing. It's in much better condition than you would expect for the miles, and even has the car's previous registration number embroidered into the mats. Show me another car for sale that has that feature!

It's got a boot too. Gawd knows what that yellow stuff it, I didn't take the pictures.

 

It's been a reliable car. Apart from the subframe the only problem has been with the starter motor, but that's been fine since Lacquer Peel donated a replacement. It's very much a £300 car but would be a great emergency car for someone.

 

It will need a patch at the front of the sill for its MOT, and possibly some other stuff.

 

Anybody?

I know that many on here would prefer the bubonic plague rather than own a mkiv Flog. However, having done many miles in my fiancées old one, I can confirm that they are trusty old steeds, brilliant on fuel and a lot of car for the money. We were gutted when ours became scrapyard fodder following a t-boner by a giffer in his Transit.
What I'm trying to say is, good luck with the sale - its a reet barg!

Them yellow cubes from out of a proper old-school urinal are easy to sneak in and a better buzz than any modern chemical shit. Never done me any harm.

This is what the computer reckons of the last 1500ish miles. Mostly town driving, bits and pieces of country roads.eb4fd7e31e81540fab75c6ca07c27a49.jpg

Immediate edit: it's the 110bhp VE pumped engine, you can tell by the red I and the fuel pump. It will probably run on veg happily enough if done properly, apparently direct injection doesn't particularly like running on it cold.

Excellent, will reply shortly.

 

Here are the tyres. There's a bit of wear on the fronts, it really has worked hard this year, but it looks nice and even.

Contis, posh.

I've always wanted to dislike these, but after being in and driving a mates I changed my view. Boring yes, but solid feeling and actual springy suspension - unlike most rubber banded German stuff you get nowadays. Yes cornering is shit, but that's made up by the absorbing qualities of the suspension.

VAG shit, but one of the last reasonably decent one all round with generally solid engines and boxes.

If this were to be heading southwards and the towbar fell off somewhere near Coventry, it wouldn't be the worst thing that could happen. Just sayin'...

£300 for that is a megabarg.

I've got the Leon version and it's been immense. Despite losing 5th gear I'm still seeing around 50mpg.

In fact I'm looking to get a slightly more presentable one for me other half.

She'll probably hate it at first but when she realises she's only filling it up once a month will think hmmmmmm!!!!

The last car we roffled ended up back in my hands quite rapidly. I don't want to take that risk this time!
