Nice 416GTI

#1 Post by itcaptainslow » Sat Sep 21, 2019 8:00 am

Just browsing Autotrader and found this...

https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified ... esc&page=1

Flicking through the pictures and in the history file is a photo of an invoice...with my business card attached from when I was a service advisor at an ex MGR dealership! I used to try and deal with all the MGR customers for obvious reasons, so it was nice to see this!

This used to be owned by a club member. I am sure he will identify himself if he wishes to!

Nice to see that the dealer has slashed his intended profit margin: I seem to remember that he first had it on the market at over £4k!

It is certainly priced more realistically now :)

Interesting-wonder if it’s the owner I served when I was at Evans Halshaw.

Yes I was the most recent and only 2nd owner. Brought it from a woman in Luton who's husband had recently passed away. I spent a lot of time and effort getting it to look that good. Shouldn't have sold it but it was heart over head.
I guess the original owner must have used your services back in the day!

Sounds like it! The car does look great in the pictures. I’d consider buying it if I didn’t have too many cars already and not enough space.

My beautiful old car has now found new owner. Hopefully I'll be seeing it again in the flesh sooner rather than later. :D

Hello Guys!

I am delighted to confirm that I am the new owner!

I found it on autotrader and was amazed by the originality and took the time to find Stephen (or Hammond on here!) who was the 2nd owner! Thanks for your time discussing the car!

Upon enquiring with the dealer he put the price back up so I decided to wait patiently. In the mean time my husband secretly arranged to buy it at the original price, with a new MOT and Battery as a surprise reveal! This was the most awesome surprise and I am simply thrilled with the car.

Only minor fettles required but plenty to keep me busy.....

I'm pleased to be a proud owner and part of the community!

Great to hear it’s found a loving home. I’d love to see it at some point being as it has one of my business cards in the history file!
