As per my previous thread regarding parting with the VXR. The deed is now done and for the first time in 25 years, I've ventured away from VX
It was with a major major heavy heart that I took this decision but I needed to cut back drastically on my motoring expenses whilst still having a nice car (heck I work for it, why not). Over the last few months, we have started to notice the strain just that little bit more (Anita had to drop her hours at work, I don't get any overtime anymore amongst other things ), so something had to give. Stand by for a couple of bits and pieces turning up in the For sale section, not too many though as I didn't really do anything to the VXR.
So, what have I got...........?
I've lost cruise control and leather, but I've gained factory bluetooth phone, dual zone climate control and extremely healthy MPG figures as well as 'acceptable' levels of road tax cost
I have to admit, I will miss the CC as I used that a lot, but hey I'll survive.
Its a 2006 model and its only done 33500 miles with full dealer service history. Next March it is due a timing belt (75,000 or 5 years) so I mentioned it to the place selling me the car, and they are doing that for me so thats a bonus (i will be checking it's been done )
One owner from new. A retired guy apparently, and garaged all the time. It is in immaculate condition and the wheels are absolutely blemish free. Not a single kerb mark, scratch, scuff, nothing. Like new .
Also comes with a 3 year unlimited mileage parts and labour warranty. Whether that will be worth its salt..... I hope I never have to find out.
So there we have it, I will be VX bound soon enough, but saw this and thought hmmm, a breath of fresh air. Who knows, i may have an RS4 within a few years (yea right)
