well it's for real,  someone is really trying to sell it for that price. Whether it actually sells for anywhere near that is another thing. I wouldn't pay that, it would need to be concourse condition for that and it's no where near. They've not even bothered washing it properly, put some effort in!

Literally no chance of it selling for that. That other one that sold on bids for 5.4k looked a nice example, had a great registration plate too.

That’s actually my car.  I am the lawful owner and V5 is in my name.  It’s currently with my solicitor to get car returned.  Obviously can’t say too much as it is pre judicial but hopefully can resolve it pre-trial.   

I’ve only just recently purchased another G40 as I missed this car so much! It’s a funny old world.

No mate, I want it back to keep it.

It’s definitely not standard either, running about 180.

I think generally these g40s for something decent are about £6-7k worth these days.   The £10k is a bit of a psychological barrier.

The one that sold on eBay for £5,400 I thought looked a good honest car.   I think someone will have got themselves a bargain as it didn’t seem to need much and had some good spares.

White noise and VW festival are on this year.   


I don’t do face book but if the club want to get a few g’s together for something this year I’d definitely be interested.

Good luck with it mate.   I’m in the middle of a 1998 UK Subaru Impreza restore.  Money pit, costs have doubled and there isn’t much wrong with it, but you can’t cut corners.  Once that’s done I’ll get my current g in for a bit of TLC in the winter
