    maybe asking too much

    owned my 2.0 tdi 140 sportback for 3 years now ,wife is preggers again

    i have to sell the car for something with 7 seats

    car is a 05 plate dark grey (forgot colour name) sport 6 speed manual with 121,000 miles with part dealer history . brother owns a vw private garage so car gets serviced twice a year even though it does less than 4,000 miles a year .

    full leather ,from an 09 plate ,alloy inserts ,lowered ,split rim look 18's ,vented drilled disks all round ,new clutch , hybrid turbo ,stage 2 custom remap 231 bhp on paper .

    bodywork is excellent

    i was going to ask around 8500 even though ive got around 11.5 k in the car

    but it seems alot for an 05 plate car , but then when looking on fleabay it doesnt seem that high .

    oops forgot to add full votex bodykit with 09 plate rear diffuser and full black grill

    i think you might struggle with 121k on the clock matey

    might be better off taking some of the upgraded parts off the car and selling as standard as you can. the fact it's got engine mods may well put off buyers as well so beware

    i thought with all the work done it would be a cheaper option than someone buying the same year car and then having all the work done ,think about all the labour costs on top .

    something that i didnt have to pay as my brother owns the garage .

    besides removing the wheels and the hybrid turbo nothing else can be removed ,besides that i would need the ecu remmaping down a standard turbo cant take that amount of boost

    i'd leave the turbo. hybrid means it's OEM enough. meant the brakes and things

    the "it's cheaper as a package" option only works if you're selling to an enthusiast, and with no disrespect intended i'd imagine the average enthusiast wouldn't want a car with 121k and would probably want to put their own stamp on things. just my opinion ofc, and i could well be proven wrong.

    best of luck with your sale anyhow, and congrats on the baby news!
