    just collected this,

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&item=220405991674

    40+ mile drive home and it drove fine, engine sounds mint, lots of clunking from arms though, not sure what he meant by whining from box? seemed fine to me
    question now is what should i do with it?
    i reckon i could get it mechanically sound using parts ive already got + £50-100 to service / tidy it up, but would i make any profit?

    or should i just break it? engine and turbo must be worth most of what i paid for it

    what do you reckon fellas:shrug:

    Engine and turbo worth more than you paid Kev .

    You did well there. I very much enjoy my 1.8t, even more so since I learnt not to drive like a pussy and actually do over 3000rpm in second and third...

    Get her in good shape, then sell her complete.

    Parting cars these days isn't as profitable as it once was.
