  1. Wow!!!! [emoji50] I think I just had a trouser accident The interior looks a bit like my RS4 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Just got an invoice out of the seller, after a fair bit of persuading, from autospecialists.co.uk (never heard of them) for the revo turbo, dated Jan 2018 Mileage then 34,208 Mileage now (on the new clocks) 22k! I knew these R’s were fast - but this one is a time machine! Well let this thread be a warning to anyone else who gets interested in this car. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Alright. Curiosity got the better of me. Burned a HPI check on it It's had 6 owners Cat D due to damage, not theft Only one MOT because of the age (so only one mileage reading) Found a previous registration DNZ 191 --> sent to Revo. I that a N. Irish plate? Been watching too many detective programs. I'm expecting to find a clip of this in some police chase !
  4. The plot thickens! Like I said - I'm still curious on the history/story of this car, so had sent out a couple of enquiries. Revo couldn't find any info from the reg - but said if I find the VIN, they could look up that way. The seller is refusing to give out the VIN... Unfortunately, this car is nowhere near me (in Durham, and I'm in Surrey) - otherwise I'd go have a good look, note down as much info as I can, and then go off and do some due diligence. What i had in mind was if this car was cat D for being stolen/recovered rather than a major accident - and then lost in the trade as the owner moved on - it might still be a good find. But at the moment - seems very iffy!
  5. What a sensible bunch you are! 😉 I'm pretty sure you're all correct (thanks for reassuring me that running a mile is the correct response), but I thought I should check in case I was missing a trick! I'm still intrigued to know the history though. Someone spent a lot of money on this! I put a couple of feelers out so will let you all know what comes back So...the hunt continues. If anyone knows of a 5dr DSG (not in blue/red), with black leather, and ideally pan roof, 19s and the pro nav, < £20k - let me know!
  6. Hi Guys Newbie here - on the hunt for a 5dr mk7 DSG. Just came across this on eBay, and details are sketchy at best. It's landed at a dealer, who doesn't seem to have many specifics. It is insurance recorded (haven't burned a HPI check on it yet - will get a bit more info first). The spec is very good (e.g. leather, pan roof), especially with the mk 7.5 upgrades. It's been modified and mapped to revo stage 4 - have reached out to revo to see if they have more info, and the car dealer is going to check if they can ascertain which revo dealer did the work. Just wondering if anyone knows this car? It feels like I should probably run a mile - but I'd like some more info first! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254130129259

    Hello! On the hunt ...

    Thanks for the tips! The leather is more about practicality - with young sprogs, it’s nice to be able to wipe clean! I’ll leave it at that without any more specifics .... Didn’t realise about the pro nav. Is that an expensive job to upgrade? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello! On the hunt ...

    Thanks for the welcome guys. Will deffo keep an eye on the classifieds - my preference would be to buy an enthusiast owned car. The combo of options I’m after, at ~£20k, doesn’t seem too easy to find though! - 5dr - DSG - Leather - Pro Nav - Pan roof - Black, grey or silver. Possibly white (I like it, but could be a hard sell on my wife!) Nice to have: rear view camera, 19s, aftermarket exhaust. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
