Hmm... to give that some perspective:

£5,990 for that, or £5,695 for this:



Madness.

Saying that, I've just looked at their other listings and they have an original Yaris for £2,190!

Hahahahaha...

Failing that, how about a 2002 Seat Alhambra for almost £4,000?

The Passat MOT history from 2016 states some sort of front end collision damage as an advisory!

You'd have to be absolutely certifiable to pay those prices for the Golf or Passat. I'd say there's an errant '5' at the beginning of the price for that Passat but even £990 is strong money for a car that was entirely unremarkable.

The mind boggles.

Looks like they tried to make a quick profit with the Passat, doesn’t seem to have worked if it’s been that price since October. £1,200 in September. In fact it’s gone up in price.

The interior looks like it's held together with self-tappers.

I mean.. It probably is from the factory, but still.

I can't comprehend the mind of the person who thinks those pictures are acceptable to support a classified ad with a £140k tag.

No idea why people are bidding on this considering the amount of rust all over the arches, sills and boot. how did it recently pass MOT? overpriced for its condition.

Speaking of Golfs - 11 thousand mile auto VR6 seems a bit strong to me at £10k.

It's a good looking thing, no doubt, but paying all that for a sluggish 20+ year old auto box seems a bit of an acquired taste.



But at least it does have some, albeit slim, collector appeal to someone for the low mileage. Then there's this '88 1.8 GL auto for only a few quid less. 72k on the clock and still £9.5k! But it has GTI trim though, so that's okay. rolleyes

I know loads have been rusted, crashed, and abused into oblivion and they're fairly rare now...but nearly ten grand for a pedestrian automatic hatchback?

Ha ha ha I wish you hadn't bought that to my attention, it is making me twitch now.

Both those Golfs are way ambitious on the pricing, they are not in the least bit desirable. GL for the win though, it is such a mash up, all wrong.

Three hundred pages here now, has anyone actually any evidence that the astronomical prices asked for the many many cars are being achieved?

If it was a 3dr manual vr6 highline in mulberry it would be good value but a silver 5 door auto?

No thanks!

I like an R34 Skyline a whole bunch, but £150k for this one can sod right off. I guess that's the premium for so many of the others having been modified into oblivion.

I prefer their 'Hartley' puddle to the original.
