    i wanna keep it pretty much standard, i'm not one for changing a car too much.

    would people advise an aftermarket airfilter? The grill is cracked so gonna replace that.

    will probably get a 2nd set of rims for it.

    I'm really impressed with the interior, looks perfect to me, very well cared for.

    Has a Full service history (every 8-9000miles), 130,000miles on it now, but still feels like new to me. Has had new shocks, top mounts, rear bushes, new discs and pads

    i paid £4k

    thanks guys.

    Am really happy with it, drives like a new car, no odd noises.

    Are they meant to have a VR6 badge on the front? where can i buy a new grill and badge?

    Really nice find that mate, all specced up and a nice colour.

    They have a small VR6 badge on the bottom right of the grill, both the grill and badges crop up on ebay quite often your best bet is to keep looking there for them as VW will rape you for new ones.

    Enjoy
