Have you got a conviction for death by dangerous driving!!!!? That's gotta be a mistake quote! Swap it, minis have had their day.... :laugh: I doubt you'll lose on it even if it is a lemon

As we've all been saying: If something seems too good to be true then it probably is.
Unless they're a little slow there's probably a good reason they're letting it go so cheap, you don't want to end up stuck with a dog you can't unload without making a big loss....

no ive only just passed my test a few months back, insurance is unbelivably high for 17 year olds :/€
mmm well i just emailed him saying is there any major problems with this car, because everywhere i look, golfs of similar spec and milage are going for £2500+, so why would you offer to swap with a car worth £1800?

his reply was no no major problems with the car just a small scuff on the rear bumper

If he's trying to stiff you he'll hardly admit to any faults at this stage. Do you have anyone who knows cars, especially Golfs that you could take along and have them check it out?

mmmm, well ive got a few mates who work in garages and stuff not particularly golfs, the problem is hes in birmingham and im in huddersfield so its a big distance.
i think it is too good to be true to be honest, probably not worth the risk now i think about it.

 I personally wouldn't pay any more than about £2000 for that golf with 140k on it, and its not the most desirable colour either.

Take a code reader or better still VCDS (vag com) and you will then have a good clue (aswell as driving it of course)
no its not strictly a vw.
