Where to begin.....
I am reluctantly selling my prized golf as I need a larger car for an expanding family.
I like to think of myself as a VW enthusiast only ever having owned Volkswagens, for over 12 years now. I've owned a lot. This is by far my favourite alongside my old VW Eos with the same 2.0 TFSI engine. Superb engine with outstanding reliability and performance.
I am extremely particular with my vw's and this particular golf took over 6 months to find after countless test drives, 000's of miles travelling to and from potential car & £££'s spent. Until finally I found her.
I purchased this vehicle 14/03/2019. I am the second owner from new, first owner buying from shop floor and owning until 2019.

The cars exterior and interior is in amazing condition considering the car is nearly 15 years old. however please bear in mind it is not a mint condition collectors item, it is a used, but extremely well loved car, it may have the odd stone chip here and there and age related marks but this is unavoidable and i've done my best to keep the car at a high standard, cleaned and polished regularly with autoglym shampoo, conditioner, polish & leather care. You will see for yourself the quality of care. The interior & leather is perfect, no rips, tears or damage.
BAD POINTS;Unfortunately there is a couple of bad points to include;- the front rims have a few minor scuff marks, if the buyer is willing to pay full asking price I will have these refurbished to a high standard so they are as new or some negotiations can be made on price to drive away as is.- there is a couple of stone chips on the roof of the car
Those are genuinely the only bad points I can think off, again if I can find anything else I will update the listing.
This car is truly an exceptional example, I have not had one issue with this car since owning, will be sad to see her go.
There is only 1 photo uploaded at present. The car is booked in for a full head to toe professional valet ready for the sale and new owner on 18/01/2021. Once the car is sparkling I will upload new photos.
