There is an ex fleet car up for sale at work.
Spec is as follows
2005 (05) 2.0 TDI (140) A3 TDI S-Line DSG
Bose with Single Shot CD Player
18" RS6 wheels
Flat black paint
1/2 leather seat which are heated in the front
dual Zone climate
87000 miles and a full service history and 4 brand new Michelin Sport2 Tyres
It cost over 26K when new
The bad things
It will need a dent doing on the wing as it is 2" long
All wheels need a refurb - they are particularly bad, possibly need replacing
It needs a new drive side door card as it has split ont he arm rest
It needs a new driver side door handle
The aluminium trim on the passenger door needs replacing
IT has had work done to it, as it had a slight shunt on the front (nothing major - bonnet, bumper and 2 headlights) and someone keyed it when it was a week old right down one side.
It is up for auction at work with a starting price of £ 4600.00 and I cant see many going for it as everyone seems to buy the skodas with 120K on them for £ 2800.00
what do you think, should I have a punt or not.
I am worried about he DSG box giving up and being stuck with a scrapper. However I could buy it (say 5K) and get the work done (wheels £ 300- wing £ 200 handle £ 100 and try and pick up new door cards from a scrapper) I could either run it for a year and then trade it in with it not costing me a penny or just move it on as they seem to fetch a few quid more than it will have cost me.
Anyone got any suggestions, anyone running a high miler with a DSG box ?
All comments appreciated
