    Very cheap @£4300, the one I saw had normal silver coloured rims, it looks like he's been running the black items, and I'm pretty sure the one I saw as an asian guy driving it, the guy selling this one is called Lee apparently?

    Lee could be an asian name or an Alias, and it does have an A to Z receipt which are based in Brum...

    Anyway Jimmeh, its not a tad on yours, nowhere near as clean as yours was......but at that price!!!

    'starts on the second turn' related to the eml on the 5th pic? must be the reason for the price. Amazing colour though!

    mileage isn't a bad thing as long as the car hasn't been ragged,a new turbo fitted recently and it takes two goes to start up sounds a bit strange as why wouldn't that be fixed when the turbo was fitted or its the start of a bigger problem.I would walk away

    To be fair to the guy, he's priced it accordingly.

    I would haggle on the price and try to buy it for around the £4k mark, then put aside a few hundred quid to sort the problem out, which hopefully isn't a major one.
    Or see if you can get someone to scan it with Vagcom to see if any DTCs are logged.
