Good price if it's from a dealer. Clean car!

Thanks Eddie, yeah it was a trade in, spoke with the dealer at length (over the phone) trip over the border on tuesday (train), then 200 mile drive back, then garaged for the winter whilst my saab takes the strain, particularly if the wether is as bad as forecast LOL. :lol:

I spotted that on the bay. Couldn't believe the price. Absolute bargain.

yeah, i had been looking for a while, pretty happy with the price particularly as i got £2650 for my low mileage minter 51 plate 2.5 model in june, but then its swings and roundabouts as i sold my 03 plate nevada for 2.1k after 5 months ownership, the guy got a good car.Saw the MK3 on the bay and rang the dealer then placed my bid.....
will let you know how i get on when i pick up. looking forward to the drive north. Reckon the used car market is pretty subdued, my local indie isnt getting a lot of work at present.....
