My weekend toy

Postby L9XSS » Sun May 17, 2015 10:08 pm

Pick this up later this week, my ebay bargain, £3000 was too good to miss out although I was keen to hunt down a 2.0 sport, but at this price it was too good too let pass. Plan is to lower by 30mm to improve the handling and stance. Other than that, I'm just going yo enjoy it. Mk3s seem to be reaching a level in the secondhand market and there are some real bargains out there. I'm planning to run it for 24 months and then upgrade again. :D

That looks a steal at £3k. I sold my Eunos for more than that!

The car was due to be traded I at Audi for circa £2600 against a new car (by the previous owner) therefore a WIN WIN for me and previous owner. I still think it's a cheap second car at the price I paid. :D

bargain ! I was very tempted myself - is there much between the 1.8 and 2.0 in the real world ?
