    well for the first time ever I've bought a car site unseen based on a video and conversations with the owner,96 mk3 convertible 1800 with 54k on the clock and full history,paid a fair price and going to suffolk to pick it up on sunday. smells like a "gudun" so watch this space !

    well it seems I picked well as everything is good with the car and it flew the 180 miles home with no dramas, comes with a full book,all history and 12 months ticket.it needs a good deep cleaning inside and out and a few minor fixes but most of all some b****y sunshine !!
