View Full Version : MK1 wanted

30th August 2010, 05:53 AM
Looking for a nice condition mk1, i can pay a deposit of £400 now and looking to pay in full on the 31st of september and collect on that date. I have a budjet of around £1000 depending on location etc. Must have tax and MOT. Not too worried about milleage, but bodywork must be nice, though a little rust is ok as will be putting money into the car to get up to standard.

Considering selling mine, it might be the sort of thing you're after. I'm near Brighton, you're free to have a look.

hi the best advice i can give you is save a bit more money and buy one with the body work done properly . the arches cost between £700 to £1000 to be done right , rust on top of window screen is very expensive to put right and then there the rust you don't see . i have saved 7 of these cars and nothing surprises me on where they rot . at the end off the day you get what you pay for and with a budget of a £1000 wont be much unless you drop lucky . you need a mk1 member who is close and knows the car to go with you on the viewing . if you can get the work done cheap or you have a friend who can fix it get one cheap otherwise beware you will get big bills to fix it . not trying to put you off, i looked at a members car last week to check the condition , she paid £800 for it looked a nice car on the outside , after a 10 minute check it was going to cost her more than £1500 to put right , both arches , sills ,rear sills and inner wheel arches , rear corners and front chassis need doing to bring it up to spec . i felt awful when i told her but the car failed its self and her husband brought it and had a good look at it , it still has 5 months mot :o these cars can be money pits if you buy wrong .
