With spectacularly poor timing given the ongoing building works and the lack of resolution on the Evoque, I increased the fleet yesterday.
It is a Dec 18 VW UP Gti in Black, with Panoramic roof, Climate control and Cruise/park pack with 9500 miles - it drove like a new car (some of those I have test driven really didn't feel great at 20k) and is as clean as a whistle.
Full VW history every year at about 2k miles, and majority one lady owner up until March 23 (Googling shows a very prim Bungalow for Mrs Susan Cal*****) so hopefully not ragged. It has 6 months in the hands of a chap who started to tweak things - nicer steering wheel - red badges etc before he traded it in for a AMG Merc 45 I think.
To do list includes replacing the Eco tyres - they are terrible grip/braking and cracks in the grooves and sorting out the shit numberplate - there is one dint on a door which can get sorted in due course. I got some money off to cover some of this
Came from a dealer in Huddersfield - but I am treating it as private sale as I suspect he is a phoenix business - good service though including his getting the service at VW to maintain the unbroken history and definitely at the bottom of his stock - lots of Golf Rs, BMW M4, FF Range Rover, AMG Mercs you get the picture
Tyres aside it drives really well and I was impressed how well it went on the motorway - better tyres will sort the jiggly ride and it has loads of torque with enough oomph to be fun without being too naughty - I really like it
