To cut a long story short I bought this car as a replacement for my Golf that was declared a total loss last month. However the insurance and finance companies have me stuck in a negative equity situation, and with a wedding to pay for this year I have decided to purchase a replacement car on finance and sell this to raise some cash.

Its a 2002 02 Reg Skoda Octavia VRS. I'm sure you know what these are but for those that don't they basically run the VW/Audi 1.8 20v Turbo engine, the car is based on the Golf chassis and everything is VW/Audi. They are 180bhp standard, but a remap costing about £250 will hike it up to around the 220-230bhp (Matching what this engine produces in the higher powered TT) There are plenty of reviews on the internet that are worth a read, these are well regarded and quite sought after with a good following.

This car is in really good condition as hopefully you can see in the pictures, I went to Liverpool to pick it up as I wanted a good one. It has done 93k, has FSH, is MOT'd until Sept/Oct 09 and is Tax'd until the end of April 09.

They come with a high spec as standard and this includes digital climate control, cruise control, 6 disc changer, leather interior, 17" wheels, plus the usual electric windows etc. Everything works and the car drives 100% spot on. I have just replaced 2 of the tyres and had the tracking done as well. The car is totally standard with the exception of grooved discs and uprated pads. In the last 3 months it has also had a new oil pump, water pump and other associated parts replaced, as well as an oil and filter service. It uses no water or oil, doesn't smoke at all and really is a great car, it also has a really huge boot! I am waiting for the return of the registration documents but can issue a full receipt and anything else that may be required.

Price wise I am asking £3250ono which puts it at the cheap end of what these go for, but thats more to attract genuine interest and not a reflection of the condition of the car. It is one of the best available.

The car is in Ipswich and my number is 07727 456492

Cambelt was replaced when the water pump and Oil pump were done in Nov 08. Last service was 13/08/08 at 88,891 miles.

Free bump for a cheap and very tidy VRS, these really are superbly under-rated cars...


...from another black VRS owner.;)

I'd be interested apart from the distance as I'm in Birmingham. I'm after a car with this engine after driving the mk4 gti 180. Just wish it was a bit closer.

Was also gonna suggest posting it on briskoda if your a member - I would do it for you but the rules state you can't advertise other peoples stuff for them.

Seen this around Ipswich a few times (silver fabia vrs) and looks like a nice example. Good luck!

Cheers for the kind words. Its on ebay and I guessed that the briskoda users would still look on there and PH if they were after one.
