That's actually quite tempting in a way. And you're local.


I swear I've seen this, or it's double, parked in Tesco Basingstoke on more than one occasion.

Never been to Tesco amazingstoke. If I'd known about this last year I might have bought the triplet just for shits and giggles.

Is it a rain type leak or possibly heater matrix?

 

Love this, very tempting... ticks almost all of the boxes that when they get ticked I end up buying a car by mistake.

Rust on the springs! Fuck that m8 scrap it.

No seriously, the advisories are to cover the garages arse. It’s a assessment of what might present a possible problem in the future not a personal critique.

Mr Honda. If I wanted to know the towing weight of any of my cars I would probably ask you!
Fuel consumption around 35mpg on a good run

The smell of large hounds running free inside the red Golf was something to behold. It's not something I will forget (I think).

 

Mk3 Golfs are pretty bloody fine, you can still do most things on them at the side of the road with a bag of assorted spanners and Milky Way wrappers, it all felt solid and pretty well put together and stuff was pretty cheap to get hold of.

Classy car. Over the old banger stage. Cool to own. My old boss had one in the 90's - a GTI. Drove like a looooooony - I spend time in the passenger footwell of these praying.

I'm grateful I've no cash either. Especially considering towbar for and auto box. And I've no transport either since the cables seized up on the box. It's an ideal motor to stay within the family.
