That looks good. Lots of history which is a good sign. It’s got the smaller powder coated alloys, so no issues with white worm corrosion, upgraded stereo (RCD510) and it’s also got the rare xenon headlamps.

Was even considering it myself  :grin:

Seems priced low! Has the market crashed that much due to coronavirus?

No but when you can pick mk7s up for just north of 10k it’s a given mk6 prices will fall

Maybe. But I think Mk6s look better than Mk7s. And they have real handbrakes and stuff which some people do appreciate so I think they'll hold value pretty well.

They might look better in your opinion but the mk7 is leaps and bounds ahead of the mk6 and most are getting near ten years old now so values will drop

ive always preferred the 6 to the 7 looks wise tbh, I reckon the seats in the mk7 are pretty naff compared to the mk6 also
i reckon they will hold their value reasonably well, there doesnt seem many around compared to something like a focus st

Well if you do an eBay search for a mk6 GTI and focus st between 2008 -2010 there is more golfs  :grin:

Regardless of what search either of us is doing it won’t stop prices tumbling throughout all makes and models unless rare in the current climate
