    Karls OE PLUS estate SOLD !!!!!!!!

    Well here it is the car is for sale.
    There is a build thread for the car here,
    http://www.staffs-vw.co.uk/staffs-vw...tdi-wagon.html
    It started life as an SE spec PD130.The car came with extras such as a sun roof, Fog lights and cruise control. I have owned the car for the last 7.5 years it has had one other owner a solicitor. Car comes with the original manual and a big pile of old MOTís road tax discs receipts etc.
    I am selling it because I fancied a new challenge as I have run out of things to do, and have another car on the way.
    The car currently has 145K miles on the clock and is taxed till 02/14 and Motíd till 02/14
    The car has a full main dealer service history up to the time I bought it. After that it has been serviced correctly in line with manufacturers recommendations every year. I only do around 8-9K a year so oil changes have been less than 10K, and either Millers XFE-PD or the last few years Quantum Long life 3 oil. The car was serviced last month.
    The cam belt and water pump were changed 3 years ago at 120K.
    At 124k miles the car had a BV43 fitted off a 60K mile car.
    Less than 10 months ago the car had a 6 speed gearbox fitted with a virtually new LUK clutch and flywheel. The gearbox is an earlier Getrag one so no diff issues
    There are many performance mods on the car currently it is running 207bhp and 345Lb/ft of torque and has run a 14.95 93mph at the Shakespeare raceway so it doesnít hang around. 0-60 is around the 7.0 second mark.
    The performance mods include modified Phase 2 Custom Code map, ARL spec head bolts, BV43 turbo, Darkside EGR delete, PD150 injectors, A straight through 2.5 inch stainless steel exhaust system with a THS downpipe and a Milltek back box. There is no cat or intermediate silencer however the car is not much louder than standard. The thermostatic fan has been converted to an electric item.
    The car sits 30mm lower than normal on Eibach springs and uprated shock absorbers and has Audi A4 Trapez wheels fitted with 205/55/16 tyres. And has an Alloy spare wheel as well . The car has 15mm hubcentric spacers all around to widen the stance a little. All tyres have a good deal of tread on them. Brakes are uprated with 312mm discs on the front with EBC Yellowstuff pads about 50% worn and EBC Greenstuff pads on the back about 20% worn.
    A sport 29mm Front ARB is fitted. As is an Audi A6 top strut bar and an A4 lower strut bar to tighten the handling a little. Recently new rear bump stops were fitted as well as lower front suspension arms and ARB C links. A new engine tray was fitted earlier in the year after the last one was damaged in the snow.
    The car has two remotes which operate the windows as well. It has auto locking enabled and has auto headlights and get you home lights where the fogs and sidelights stop on for about 15-20 seconds when you lock or unlock the car at night. The mats in the car are about 12 months old.
    Steering wheel was upgraded to a three spoke perforated leather item from an Octavia VRS.
    There is a connects2 MP3 player connected to the stereo which uses an SD card to store 600 tracks. Also has a 3.5mm socket if you want to play your IPOD through the stereo. Headlights have HID bulbs in them and LED sidelights. The interior lights of the car have all been changed to much brighter LEDís. The car has an aftermarket rear parking sensor kit fitted.
    The buyer can have a choice of engine covers, either the original or the one currently fitted.
    The sale wonít include the boost or EGT gauge, I will refit the original top part of the steering column shroud, Also the engine oil cap as both these will be going on the new car eventually.
    The car has a tow bar which is currently disconnected leaving just a small protrusion to be seen from the back. Takes about 15 minutes to reattach it again when required.
    So whats wrong with the car.
    Only small things consistent with the age and mileage of the car, some stone chips on the bonnet , touched up, some small marks on the paint here and there and the odd car park dink. There is a small dent in the NSR bumper that you can see in the photo. Glovebox handle isnít quite right, it locks and opens OK but feels like something has broken in the handle mechanism. The underbonnet sound insulation is not quite right after I jet washed it a little too much and there is a split on the seam of the rear seat which has been there for the last few years and got no worse. It may have been there longer just I spotted it a few years ago. Itís not obvious.
    A lot of the mods have really turned the car from an SE to a sport spec car so price wise I have looked at similar mileage / year cars and added something on for the mods. So looking for £2750 with everything on the car, If you want it cheaper I can take bits off to bring the price down.
    I am in Heath Hayes near Cannock and you can contact me either on here or my mobile 07761048320 .
    The car wasnít cleaned before I took the pictures so comes up shinier than this.

    Re: Karls OE PLUS estate for sale

    I have had some interest in the car but people seem worried about the mods and it's reliability. These engines will take upto 250bhp easily with no major mods. If over 200bhp is a little much for some people I can remap the car to what ever you want anywhere between 130bhp and 207bhp . Also the car has a new price £2500
    Thanks for looking

    Well car was sold tonight, hopefully it's new owner will look after it in the manner to which it has been accustomed.
    Now living in Pershore so not a million miles away.
    New owner seemed well happy, first person to see it bought it as I thought they would.
