Polo for sale

Recommended Posts

Any interest in a roffle before it heads to eBay/auto trader land?

 

You're going to struggle to sell this anywhere at any price. Take it from one who knows. The minute I drove away from the purchase and I strong armed the gear lever into second, I said to myself  "I've bought a tractor!" When I got back I put it onto all the websites immediately, idea being it should sell within 6 months  and I would bide my time. Not one call!

 

They're as undesirable as it gets. People used to comment that they didn't even know you could have a saloon Polo. And why not buy a Bora for £300?  Yours looks particularly nice, but you can't polish a turd. A Polo saloon is by it's very perversity autoshite. Keep it, it's a goodun!

I'm running around in the estate version at the moment whilst my saab is off the road. 1.9sdi gets 60mpg on a long run even if it does sound like a tractor. 500 sounds a decent price if its been looked after.

I use a 14-yr-old Bora TDi which was remapped for economy. That one can get past 60mpg as well. Value equally low nowadays.

Good nick but deffo over egged it on the selling price.

 

It's old enough to have been maintained by a mechanic named Dewhurst who would have undoubtedly cocked up a few things.

 

This is why nobody's trying to take a flyer on it and I think the seller has been counting chickens before the eggs have hatched.

 

Looks clean though and might get someone out of a spot of bother

A good way of avoiding the horrors of Gumtree:

 

Why not offer it for swaps? You never know what interesting stuff someone on here might be looking to move on.

If I had half a dozen low value shite mobiles and needed a more reliable, practical  daily, it's a deal I'd look to do. 

 

You might end up with a Renault 25, a Citroen BX, Talbot Alpine etc.

 

This could be interesting folks, I'm not saying he would swap for anything, but it's still ok for me to ask what you would swap for this Polo I presume? Show us your cards!

      My attempt at living a shite free life has failed. Trawling e bay/ gumtree again etc but I thought I'd put out a wanted ad here. I've been browsing the for sale threads, but is there anything your thinking of moving on and would like to keep in the fold and have a hassle free sale? I'd consider anything but something fundamentally ok with a bit of MOT would be great. There is a bit of a strange condition- unusually I'm free this Wednesday and rarely at all other times- so being able to collect during the day this Wednesday would be perfect.

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.
