    Nice car, but you know it's been ragged all over.

    I'd have the steering wheel... but I'm after a body kit!

    Re: why oh why

    done it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    hi, nice car with nice toys. Have noticed that in another listing recently you were selling the steering wheel separately. Is it now staying on the car? Also, i'm just wondering what condition etc the mechanics are. in that previous ad, you seem to be revving it to nearly 7k, when the temperature of the engine appears to be cold. is this normal practice for the 1.8T that has been remapped?
    Thanks, martin

    and his reply was:- [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif[/img]
    Hi Martin

    Not at all I would never do that especially with a Turbo! The car was actually ticking over, I had a faulty rev counter that was over reading the revs which has now been rectified - the needle basically slipped round. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bang.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

    I was selling the steering wheel to replace it with the new style punctured leather S-Line item but my circumstances have since changed so I am selling the car complete.

    The mechanics are absolutely A1, this is a very well looked after car and has not been hammered in any way - it does of course have a Full Service History as well. I am a mature owner - not a boy racer and the remap was only done to increase mid range torque as I do a fair bit of motorway miles.

    To be honest I am considering withdrawing it from ebay but if you are seriously interested then please let me know.

    There has been well over 3k spent on this car in the last six months.

    Cheers

    Scott
