y reg mk4 golf gti, how much??
« on: 09 June 2010, 15:45 »
hi i was hoping someone on here could help me, i have been offerend a mk4 golf gti 1.8 turbo

here is the information i have just recived on it
1.8 Turbo model
Dark Metallic Green
140,000 (motorway miles)
6 months tax and mot
Recently serviced...engine running like new
original cd unit and multichanger
All the usual CL/Immobiliser,EW,AC
16" BBS Alloys (Standard)
Bodywork is in good condition for the age of the car
HKS Dump Valve fitted...not too loud just a nice psshhh noise.

The reason i am asking is because i have been offered to swap my classic mini for this car, and i was just curious as to weather this car is within a similar price range to my mini :) so what do you think?
thanks

Parkers price for that year in good nick with 90000 miles is £2990, minus adjustment for the extra 50K is probably about £2250 -2500

The mini was up for £1800 where he offered to swap it, just makes me a bit suspicious as to why someone would be willing to swap a car which is worth more?

No harm in checking it out, just proceed with caution and use the usual safeguards: HPI etc. Might even be worth having it checked by an independent to make sure there's nothing expensive waiting to happen....

mmm just makes it seem like its too good to be true if the golf is worth almost £1000 more than the mini

yeh i agree with linz. alough parkers says less they still have a strong price on autotrader and pistonheads
007p diverter, piper x panel filter, R-tech remap... and the addiction begins

right im waiting for a reply on the hpi check,
what do you think could this be a good investment even if i decide to sell the car straight away?
as im only 17 and the insurance came back at £12500 haha, so would it be worth swapping and selling the golf?
thanks :)
