HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD IT?

I paid £3750 for it in April 2008 from a pri­vate seller who had taken great care of it. I was the first to view af­ter it was posted on a web­site the pre­vi­ous day. I had to get there quickly be­cause there were other in­ter­ested peo­ple. I have done quite a lot of work dur­ing my own­er­ship, in­clud­ing re­fur­bish­ing the ABS pump and al­loy wheels. It also went to a rec­om­mended bodyshop to fix rust that was start­ing below the hatch win­dow and in the front arches. All but the roof was re­sprayed.

HOW MUCH HIS­TORY?

Very com­pre­hen­sive. It has a fully stamped up ser­vice book and all the other man­u­fac­turer lit­er­a­ture sup­plied from new. I have all the MoT cer­tifi­cates back to when the car would have had its first test, plus a file full of re­ceipts for work done dat­ing back to 1997. I am the fourth owner, the first be­ing a prop­erty man­age­ment com­pany.

WHAT’S LEFT TO DO ON IT?

I am go­ing to re­place the front discs and pads and pos­si­bly the front shock ab­sorbers in the near fu­ture. I would also like to change all the sus­pen­sion bushes at some point.

HAS IT BEEN MOD­I­FIED?

The very de­sir­able Di­avia air con­di­tion­ing sys­tem was fit­ted by VW deal­ers Scotts of Sloane Square in 1997 for the sum of £2115! A Je­tex stain­less steel ex­haust sys­tem was fit­ted in 2010 af­ter the orig­i­nal ex­pired. I would have liked an orig­i­nal sys­tem but they are silly money now and hard to source.
