Well, this week we’ve come across a lovely little cabrio. What else would it be with weather like this? The freedom the lack of top cover brings, the wind in your air, the sun beating down. Are you a poser in such a chariot? Slightly, but think of bystanders as naught but jealous onlookers who are yet to experience the joy that a cabriolet brings.
Being a Golf, it would make a very sensible purchase. Five doors, practical engine and with no roof, you will easily fit all of those flat pack furniture or garden centre purchases in with ease as well as alert passers by aware of your questionable choice in music.
This metallic aubergine mk3, listed as purple, has only one owner from new! Yes! One! This little Golf is sixteen years old and has lived with the same person for the entirety of its life. Clearly, its owner has shared a bond with it, something that you could come to do also, with time.
Engine wise, the Golf only has fifty seven thousand miles. If you were going solely by mileage then technically, it wouldn’t even need a belt change yet! How often do sixteen-year-old cars come with such little mileage? The Golf only has the smaller 1.8 75 bhp engine, rather than the full 2.0 liter GTI engine. Why, I hear you ask, would I buy the smaller, non-GTI engine? Just think of it as a summer cruiser with cheap insurance. Its not for racing, its for runs to the beach and just chilling out. You will also see an average of thirty-five mpg, which, with today’s astronomical fuel prices, can be no bad thing. Sporting power steering, what appear to be genuine alloys, airbags and a CD player you can’t go far wrong.
All of this could be yours for only £895. This is a little steep considering that others can be had for less but bare in mind that one owner from new and low mileage will push up the price, as well as the sunshine tax pushing it up further.
