Here are some more pics for those who are interested... I am sad to see the Polo go but it just didn't seem to be running the same as it did way back when even after a decent service. Plus with the niggles such as cambelt looming a new clutch would've been on the cards at some point too and the fact...

Hi Wardy, Ive not used them personally was going to but never got round to it to be perfectly honest. I've seen their work and its good also being local is a bonus as Im sure they'd be able to sort you out a set of spares to run around on. £190 +VAT is a good price I reckon.

I didn't go looking for a test drive just got offered to take it out if I wanted to so duly obliged! Don't think it matters about age as I'm only 22 myself. Comparing new to old is like chalk and cheese my 6N2 GTi is a totally different car then again being 6 years old nearly I wouldn't expect it to...

Just took a new GTi for a test drive

Earlier on today I went round to our local VW dealer (Gilbert Lawton, Altrincham) to have a look at a Beetle cabrio for the missus ended up eyeing up a sexy little black 3DR Polo GTi. Got talking to one of the guys there and took it out for a spin! First impressions were good but when parked up next...

Likewise an S3 would be ideal, nothing wrong with my Polo just as with every car I've had I get a 2 year itch and want something newer. Maybe the price on a second hand MK5 Golf GTI might drop to say £15k in the next twelve months? If I'm being offered £3700 to trade in now what am I likely to be ...

Keep the Polo and drop a 20vt engine in Twisted Evil . You'll have a quicker car with better build quailty than the 182 & Mini both of which have had quality issues and are far more common.
Just out of interest, how much would this cost?? :twisted:

I may look into selling it privately stick it in at £5500 and see what repsonse I'd get, just seems £3700 for a decent car is a p*** take however saw it with my own eyes in the glass' guide at trade-in value. I've been tempted at getting an S3 but everyone I've seen seems to have a massive mileage...

Trade in value of GTI

Whats with the poor trade in value for a GTI? Been looking around either Cooper S or the Clio 182 round the £13k mark and only getting offers of £3700 thats with everything in tip top condition. My cars a 2000 (W) full VWSH, MOT til Nov, 37k miles on the clock, full leather btw.

I've recently had mine in for a service they advised the cambelt and tensioner needed doing quoted me £407.39. Surely this is way over the top from the looks of it?

Your best bet is probably the Supersprint back box, I have the full system and can't recommend it enough. Nice tone not loud and looks good. (Apologies for the poor camera phone pics, but thought they'd help). http://www.premieremortgages.co.uk/mark/Image(120)s.jpg http://www.premieremortgages.co.uk...

I'll second that, the car and wheels looks spot on. If you dont mind me asking how much does your man charge for sorting the alloys? I'm pretty sure he'd be inundated with people from here, I'd deffo have mine done if he was willing if you could put a word in.
