|08/08 Golf GTI Edition 30 5 door MANUAL||
|2008 model year Mk5 Golf GTI Edition 30 built at Wolfsburg. 4 owners from new. Supplied by Parkway VW Derby in March 2008 to original owner. Then in July 2011 with 44000 miles it was sold as an Approved Used car by VW main dealer JCT 600 to a gentleman from York. On 26/1/13 it was purchased by a lady from Devon who travelled a significant distance to West Yorkshire to buy it due to its condition (along with her fussy VW enthusiast husband) having traded in their Mk5 Golf GTI which had been purchased from us. In 2016 at 76000 miles we took it in part exchange from them against a £19000 Mk6 Golf R and sold to it to a local gentleman who offered it back to us directly. We don't normally buy cars at this age and mileage but we love Mk5 GTIs and this one while not perfect, is a good unmodified example with a superb service history and that is rarely the case these days..|
|111000 miles with a full service history in original service book (see images above) mainly from VW or specialist though some from 2013 were performed by a local garage trusted by the owner e.g. when they performed the second cambelt change in early 2016, they insisted on also replacing the water pump, something VW main dealers do not always do. We have all receipts from 2011 and numerous MOT certificates. MOT to 13/11/20|
|Complete 'GTI' branded owners manual pack. VW dealer branded number plates. Spare remote key. Cloth floor mats.|

SUPPLIED WITH 3 MONTHS IN-HOUSE WARRANTY
(WILL NEED TO BE RETURNED TO US FOR ANY REPAIRS)
the Mk5 GTI is generally a reliable hot hatch, there is no getting away
from their age and in most cases, quite high mileage. The last owner spent
a fair bit on this one backed up by a lot of receipts (aircon fix, steering
rack etc) but still left us to do work such as replacing the thermostat
due to overcooling (a very time consuming job) and the rocket cover gasket.
We've also had the wheels refurbished at great expense by Prestige Wheel
Centre (new centre caps too) and replaced the cruise control stalk.
There is barely visible early stage corrosion to offside front wing but the rest of the body is extremely tidy and we believe all paint on metal panels to be original. Interior is good too with no smells. In 2016 we replaced the driver's upper bolster panel but due to a fabric that wasn't fit for purpose being used, this has worn again so has been repaired again. We've fitted some new red edge floor mats as a finishing touch. We fitted Osram Nightbreaker Laser dipped beam and main beam headlamp bulbs to this car for a DIY video and this also included whiter side light bulbs. We've even replaced the VW badges on both keys!
