    Sad Day

    Its come to that time where i hate to say.... The S3 looks like its got to go
    I have only had her over 9months but after moving house its just costing me to much to keep running.

    I have no idea really how much i should put my car up for sale??
    Does any1 have any ideas what i should be asking for

    The spec is as stated below
    W Reg (2000) Has 90k on the clock, 12months Tax and 5month MOT, 4 New Tyres
    Full service history to 60k then self serviced to current but all recepts for parts kept
    Mountains of paper work, everything that has been spent on the car all papers kept
    Inside the car is very clean nothing wrong and also paint and body work is in top condition
    Only small thing is alloys that could do with a refurb

    Pics below and any intrests please let me know

    Cheers Mike

    It's a nicely sorted car and I bet it's snapped up quickly, but i'm not sure of a value.
    Good luck with the sale!

    6K is the going rate apparently. If it's over 7 years, they are not suppose to sell for more than this figure.

    Golf Mk4 130 or 150 and remap. You could PM Mark from Chip n Spin, he did my map and he had a mk4 golf 150 that he'd mapped to over 300lbft torque, it was very pokey

    I cant believe its going either mate. Ive gota say even i'll miss seeing it. This is my old car, and if i had the money or could get rid of mine quick enough, i'd have it back in a second. Someone really is getting a bargain for that price. The car is mint
