|08/08 Golf GTI Edition 30 5 door MANUAL||
now £500 off at £6490 sorry no offers
|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..|
|112500 miles with a full service history in original service book (see images above) mainly from VW or specialist. Cambelt last changed in 2016 with water pump and therefore next due in 2021. We performed a 10k service on 23/1/20.|

While the Mk5 GTI is generally a reliable hot hatch, there is no getting away from their age and in most cases, 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 work to do 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) having carefully selected a shade of silver that we felt was a good balance between silver and grey. They are shod with 4 decent, matched Michelin tyres. We've also replaced the cruise control stalk which we fitted originally with a better quality Meyle part.
Cosmetically this Edition 30 is very good condition but
it's 12 years old, has covered well over 100k miles and is believed to
have all original paint except on the rear bumper. As a result there
are lots and lots of stonechips particularly to the bonnet. If
this is an issue, we suggest you consider carefully if you want to buy
a car like this as they will either be chippy or have been repainted
(often poorly) due to accidents. I can't imagine many owners will spend
the £1000 needed to paint the front end (wings, bonnet, bumper,
A pillars) properly. The worst chips have been touched and red wax has
been used to reduce the visual impact of the others. The upside of the
chipping is that we believe it is due to the car having covered manly
low stress motorway miles which has preserved the driving experience better
than the mileage woudl suggest.
