ive seen ones for 8k but i suppose its the usual saying, you get what you pay for. Although if your buying from a garage then they will be more expensive then private sale as there trying to make as much profit as poss. But when your looking around for a motor in that price range its defo worth having a good look round and not to buy the first one you see, however nice it is  :tongue:

I have been looking at them for a while now (more Mk5 though) and the prices have gone up over the last 3 months. That car though Joe is expensive to be honest. You are better off selling yours private (and you would get £5k if you waited long enough) and buying the R32 private. At the end of the day it about the cost to change and £6k seems steep for a car that has 20k more miles on it and is only a year newer.

The fuel cost on them are awful. I thought that it would be similar when I bought my 4 Motion but boy was I wrong. That would do 25mpg on average where as the 1.8T does 35mpg on average. Over time those extra 10miles adds up!

I am not saying don't get one, but I would say you are may be rushing in it a bit  :wink:
