another member to team wagon, the green 1.8t machine
« on: 17 October 2010, 18:52 »
well after letting my heart rule my head and buying a late mk2 16v which i`ve ran for the last 6 months, it turns out it was totally
impractical for what i needed.
so two weeks ago started the hunt for a wagon, called upon the usual car finding guru(chuff).
i ended up buy a t reg v6 a6 estate which the seller kindly backed out of the deal the day before collection.
i work away from home all week but was on holiday last week so i really needed to find one before i start work tomorrow, luckily i kept one of the ebay links chuff had sent me, put a cheeky bid in and forgot all about it. after viewing a few cars on friday i realised i had missed the end of the auction checked on my phone and realised i`d won the auction
so here she is
s reg 1.8t passat wagon, t&t, fsh, cam belt done 10,000 miles ago all old mot`s, bit scabby in places and a bit of trim missing but drives really well and everything works :smiley:

so here`s a few pics








got some plans,coilies, wheels and a bit of paint  but got a wedding to pay for so could take a while to do :grin:

Looks good if it was cheaper than Chuff's. How much green did you part with for it?
