Passat B5.5 Estate TDI 130 sport 6sp 2003

Sadly SOLD, have we made the right decision??!! no Dubs in the House :|

Hi guys,
We have decided to sell our 2003 VW B5.5 Passat Estate 130 tdi Sport (6sp) in dark blue, here is some info on it.

It currently has 156,352 miles, but this will increase until the car is sold
x2 owners, we bought it as an ex-demo x3 months old, so our family wagon for ten plus years!
Full service history, it is due it's next service in 2000 miles.
Two almost new Michelin front tyres, both the rears have over 3mm.
It did have some rust, but the only rust was small bubbles in the arches of the front wings, these were recently re-placed by VW.
It has a full leather interior which is in good condition, everything functions exactly as it should apart from the rear boot lock, which requires the key to unlock it.

At the end of last year we decided to refresh some of the performance, new intercooler and EGR, new pipe clips and seals. We also did lots of research into the best subtle modifications this identified up grading with: original VW 312mm front discs, Bilstein B12 suspension include Eibach progressive springs, a Revo re-map.
These mods mean that it now has even better handling, a good ride with very little roll or dive. Great brakes. Goes exceptionally well and even more economical.

It's mot is due at the end of March next year, but a new one can be put on for the full asking price.

Price: £1850

Based in East Devon, near Sidmouth.

Thanks for looking,

James

This scratch has damaged only the first layer of paint and has not gone through to metal.

A minor dent, and scratch. A colour coded 'pen' was used.


The last two images are of the two worst bits of damage to the paintwork on the vehicle, there is also a small dent in the front passenger door, I tried to take a photo, but couldn't get it to show up, it is hardly noticeable but I thought it was worth mentioning it.

Last two pics seem to emphasis blemishes which are not that obvious when looking! More pics have been requested...
