Would cars registered in 2011 be affected?

How many miles would you say was too high for a 2009/2010 Car? I think i am going to buy one come late May, early June but ive been looking now anyway in case the perfect one was to come up for sale :)

Ive seen a couple at around 70k miles for like £9500-£10000? but I'm over thinking about the resale value after im done?

I do around 13-14K miles per year and will keep the car for around 3 years before i sell it.
Im thinking if i can find one around 50-55k miles or less by the time im done with the car it should still be under 100k miles before i sell it.

Also how many miles are you getting per tank?

I am doing 250-275 Miles per week & Im getting around 38MPG in my 1.4 TSI (Mixed driving)

It usually a case of condition versus miles, the "average" car loses 50% every three years, so calculate your deprecation on that rough estimate.

The best I've done over a tank is 37MPG with no town driving.

If being very careful I can crack 40. The best I've seen is 42mpg :laugh:

I've seen on other threads you have a 3 door?  I'm looking for a 5 door as I've got a 4 year old daughter I taxi around daily and it makes my life easier 😊

Thanks anyway & im sure you will have no trouble selling.

The question is what you getting next? MK7??

I sold my mk6 gti last week [59, 5 door dsg with all the toys] and I must say it's the best car I ever owned. Bought it after it had done 50k miles and I tool it to over 102k, no issues apart from a random rattle. Mine was vw services every 10k, so I recommend one that has full service and been looked after.

I took a warranty for 1st year, just for peace of mind, might be worth doing depending on what you pay. No issues with tensioner and dsg is a dream.
