    Opinions Please!

    Firstly please dont turn this into barry boys tread.

    was wondering what you guys think about this?

    i know the wheels would have to go, what you guys recon about the rest?

    id have to check to see if the milage is genuine and the service history is all in order, but what else should be checked?

    EDIT: just noticed that the front and rear lights dont look like the normail gsi ones. The fronts aint tinted and the rears dont look it either?

    very nice mate, like said, ask as many q's as pos, and ask for history, old mot's service book, with invoice's etc etc, i paid, £6600 only 7 month's ago, it had 62ooo on the clock, but it came with all the old mot's all the old service invoice's with book stamped, by vx, so if it's as good as it say, A REAL STEAL MATE , worth geting rac, to look over it, but like i said dont be scared to ask as many q,s as pos, have a good look at the paint work, on the front, as the blue show up chip's alot more, look at the driver's seat, for wear, if only 26000 it should still be new, look at the roker cover, see if there's any oil, if much it's a sign, its been trashed around, and def worth seeing if it been crashed damaged, 5000 g's is still alot of money , to drive home and some thing go wrong with it , or find out it's been a right off,,, but it is a good 1 mate , and def get rid of the wheel's

    my concern here would be why he is selling it so cheap ?

    look at the other two GSI's he has

    both are at most one year younger but have double the miles

    yet the are both £1.5k more

    go down and have a snoop round all three and pay attention as to the condition of the drivers seat bolster, the pedals, steering wheel, handbrake and gear gator on the cheaper one compaired to the newer ones with more miles

    if they are well worn i would suspect its clocked

    What Craig says, and check all the panels for alignment and paint match, any signs of over spray in the arches/underneath

    It might explain why the lights are off and pre-03 hatch

    I think that car was one i looked at some time ago when searching for a gsi - it was cat d, had standard sri/sxi cloth seats and wrong wheels (not those). It was same age and less miles than on that now.

    Would ask to see some pictures of inside before going to view...

    cheers for the info guys. i thought it might have been a cat c/d but it says on the auction its had a hpi check and its clear with the cert to prove.

    i also noticed the other 2 gsi's aswell which also made me think that this is a strange one.

    My guess would be its been in an accident and the lights used to replace them were just taken off any old mk4. As stated ask as many questions as you can, ask for the whole history, get it HPi checked and if you can lay ur hands on a paint depth guage check the pannels to see if any have been resprayed, check the arch liners for overspray which to me would suggest a cheapo repair job. Try asking the guy why the lights aren't GSi ones he may tell you why or run a mile.
