    I'd say its a bargain if everything checks out fine. Wouldnt cost too much to get that resprayed anyway.
    You going to look at it fella?

    I'm thinking bout it Ash mate.. My mrs has gone off her mkiv 4motion due to insane petrol prices and has been on at me for a while... It does look a little suspicious from the advert? But I might go have a look anyway.. Gonna be quite a bit of spraying tho, as it looks like the "screaches" go right along the side and onto the boot a bit?

    Yeah just had another look that long scratch looks pretty deep. Looks like there 3-5 marks on the rear quarter to. One long one as well just under the window seals. The words on the driver door dont look like they are too deep. Think you could get it resprayed for about £400. If you were local fella i'd get my mate to sort it out for you. Looks a little suspicious from the ad just for the fact that the car an 57 plate with less than 30k ok its a 1.9tdi SE but could still be traded in for more than they are asking. Worth a look i'd say though. Good luck Let us know you get on

    That's some pretty impressive scratch... A pissed off ex maybe? Should only be a few hundred to sort though?

    Eloquent vandalism.

    Looks to be a cracking buy if, as said above, it all checks out. Can only really see one side of the car in the pics, hopefully thats the only damage...

    I'm having my doubts, so an hpi is gonna be a must on this one methinks.. I'm wondering how much other damage there is, plus the interior looks hammered! - much more so than the mileage would suggest? Only one way to find out tho
