Are you going to look at any of them?
Still holding out for a red or black one. Initially it was black only, now I'm actually starting to prefer red. I do like the silver, but nowhere near as much as red/black

Is this a good deal for the mileage/reg?

Guy phoned me to confirm it's still on sale and has a full service history. Should I get it or wait for leather? Argh I'm clueless :lol:

Depends how despirate you are, if you are trading in yours or selling it, you may want to look at how much yours will depreciate (sp) in the time you are waiting for leather.
Hope this helps.

Also personally i dont think the polo standard leather apart from the colour concepts are any good. The leather is quite poor quality. and if not cared for it cracks badly.

Ahh well looks like someone else will get it. I have no way of getting down. Bus isn't an option, my mum won't go, my dad is on call, a Train to a nearby station is £50 one way plus I'd have to get a taxi on top of that. And I can't drive down in the Mk7 because who would drive it back.

I was going to do a 400 mile round trip to go and look at one, I think I would have bought it, but he sold it the day before I was going up there.
