So, in anticipation of selling out* of roffle tickets I took the Golf in to my local friendly garage to get the weeping crankshaft oil seal sorted...
He phoned me up, which is always going to be bad news in my book, and I wasn't wrong. Despite recently passing an MOT it seems that the plastic sill covers have done an admirable job of covering up some fairly severe corrosion. Added to that he's struggling to get the driveshafts out of the hubs and there's also a broken spring.
All of this means that;
A. It's not, in my opinion, worth roffling.
B. It's not worth me repairing it, I'm not about to pay him what it's likely to cost and although I have the capability, I just don't have the time at the moment.
As a result it's for sale.
To recap, it's got many new parts, outlined in my roffle thread, I can supply a set of standard springs and a set of lowering springs.
I would rather not have to do battle on eBay or Gumtree, so if anybody wants to give me £400 or thereabouts then hit me up with a message...pleeeease!

Quiet full stainless exhaust.
Quality lowering springs and dampers.
New thermostat.
Good, quality tyres all round.
Low mileage.
Kent cam.
New head lights.
New discs and pads within the last year or so.
Tow bar.

Bad bits.
Rust on Sills.
Oil leak.
Usual bits on a 21 year old car, car park dents, scratches etc.

Cheers guys. Yep, the bodywork up top isn't bad at all, considering the age. The sills could be 'MOT welded', eg neatness doesn't matter because of the plastic trims. It's a real shame as it does go well and is a good all round car. I reckon it'll have to go on eBay at the weekend though.:-(

So, yes oui si is hot for this car, I think he was the top buyer in the previous roffle attempt! He's suggested above that it may be a more successful prospect at a lower price, so we'll give it a shot.
Please bear in mind it's a project and has faults, although it has been in daily use until very recently.
Don't be shy now...

Four randoms for me :)

Come on you lot - it has a year's ticket and it'll sell for £400 if/when it fails the next one.

Mrs fp is going to get an insurance quote on this as I think it would be a good run about for her with the jobs done while im doing her escort, how bad is it under the sill covers?

I like the metallic green.

Not sure if I want this... My stepdad would love it as a runabout to get him to work I think, but he might not be entirely chuffed if I win him a car that will immediately need a load of welding doing.

Look at it this way, if you won it for £7 he could drive it to the bridge and turn a profit, if he must.

2.0 8v, it has a mild Kent cam in it, it's not going to set the world on fire but it's a fun steer, it'd be good for track days. Obvs I would never condone getting up early and thrashing it mercilessly on your favourite stretch of A and B road Twisties...

I'm afraid I've got no space for a car, but yet another vote for these being underrated.

The 8v just trundles along and pulls well from low revs, and even driving mine like a bit of a prick I got 38-40mpg to work and back. They're comfy enough, ride OK and if you knacker it then they sold loads and most are on eBay as breaking. I think I paid £10 for two mint front seats and the same again for a bumper.

+1. Nice old fashioned noise plenty of torque and basically a nice car. Old enough now to feel interesting. Feels positively agricultural compared to me mark 4 but in a good way. Honest!
