buying 1.4 rt

  Mk4 golf gti

I want a 1.4 rt 4 bout £900 or less but it gota av alloys (preferably 16s or bigga) tidy body and tidy engine is it possible

no ones gonna give it to ya at that price, its gonna be a right sh*tter if you do find one!

my alloys slone almost cost that!!

Look about the 2k mark for something like that. Mine was 2.5k perfect condition and only 40k on the clock. That was a few years ago mind. But still going strong and not really had a problem with it (that wasnt caused by me) the only thing about them thats a bit crap are the breaks. But other than that, a nice car.

Nicky, do you anything about cars?

I was offered so many cars, that are cheap (for what they are) and gorgeous! Lowered. K&N, tinted windows, exhausts, alloys, all the sh*t. Look f**kin fantastic.

But Ive never even considered one. As with my Pug, bought as standard off an old lady, and did it myself.

If you buy a car that has already been modded, you know that he engine has been ragged to f**k. Mileage goes out of the window when this occurs, as the engine gets worn so much if your redlinin it everytime and engine braking.

Buy a car as standard, and add the rest when you can afford it! Otherwise youll get a nice car that wont perform as it should and die sooner than it should!

AKA Ali G. Do you talk like that too? ;)

Why dont you get an O2 300 free txt sim card for £4.99. £10 minimum top up a month. Not bad for 300 txts. Then you can afford a better motor!

As for the RT. Id certainly wait a bit and spend a bit extra. I sold my 1.4 RT a few months back for £1300. Was looked after and ran lurvley. Had alloys, lowered, full 16v interior, exhaust etc!

Anything less than a grand is gonna cost you in the long run! Might be cheap to purchase but probably need a new clutch, cam belt, gearbox, body work maybe in the near future?
