    Just give it the usual checks, check gear stick gaiters and stuff to make sure it doesnt look clocked. What size engine is it?

    I m thinking a bit too pricey, even with 39k on clock..

    Check any service history,Mot's tally up with history etc...amount of previous owners usually tells a story itself.

    bear in mind its 10 years old.

    Id be looking to cut him down a few hundred.. all the best.

    Check for wear on the pedals, steering wheel and drivers seat bolster as these give the true mileage of a vehicle away. When you swap clocks on a mk4 they display the mileage of the old vehicle so it's perfectly possible they have been swapped. There is a site here that lets you check out the MOT history of the vehicle...see if the mileage checks out

    http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/motoring...ot/dg_10020539

    If the dealer is positive it's genuine he won't have a problem with you doing that.

    3k?!? You said 2 at the beginning! It's 10 years old for crying out loud. Maybe low mileage but that would suggest it's done mainly short journeys. Plus the bodywork etc has been exposed to the elements for so long.
