some chains can last over 200,000 so depends on whos driving and how it's been serviced. apart from that it's the same as any mk3. look for rust everywhere and how well it's been looked after. A lot of owners seems it's had a hard life.

looks good mate. All I can say is view it before you bid. I'm sure there is a buying guide on here that has alot of info.

A caris worth what someone is willing to pay really.

I would check to see if the chains have been replaced tho, I would get them changed at 100k to be safe  :smiley:

Yes  :smiley: but if it needs the chains sorting it will not be cheap.

Also being an early one take a real good look / prod underneath etc.
