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.
