    Its just a function of age isnt it?

    For a while they were expensive to run, thirsty cars, so many owners will have bought them for a bit of speed and run them into the ground. Nowadays, the youngest is 12 years old, and the cheap ones are all ragged to death, and the tidy ones are being sold by enthusiasts who want good money for them.

    Few on Gumtree. Think for this end of the market you need to do your homework, have cash ready and be prepared to travel when the right vehicle comes along. Goes without saying that this is fraught with danger. You need history, receipts (and lots of 'em) and more paperwork than your average council! Check chassis number against V5, and get a finance check on something you're likely to buy.

    Check these out... opposite ends of the country, but copy looks like 'cut n paste' job. Could be pikey scammers or legit?

    I mean cheap to buy. Running costs aren't an issue as only a weekend car. Also being a manager at a VAG specialist not worried about repair costs :)
