well folks here is my latest update on the car situation
i was very close to signing for a red CTR today but when i went on-line for an insurance quote i couldnt get one below £1000 :?
then while i was on i tried for the GSI and what a result
TSB will do it for £495 inc protected no-claims
now i said the reason i didnt want a GSI was that the only two available near me were black and to go from a black mk4 sri-turbo look-a-like to a black GSI isnt realy a huge change in my eyes. i think people would still see the reg and think its the same car
anyway i have found a nice arden blue one for the same price in stirling with only 8000 miles on the clock and one owner (parts manager )
so i am going through to see it hopefullt tomorrow and might have it by next week
