Hi all,
I'm new to this forum and am going to be in the position to buy a mk4 very soon so I'm just seeing what is out there at the moment.
Would prefer a deep blue pearl mk4 but I might be tempted by the right black one but they have to be 3 door and be on standard wheels.

I'm based over in N.Ireland but don't mind traveling for the right car.
My budget will be what ever I and the seller thinks the car is wroth.

Thanks
Baz.

Hi mate thanks for the offer, but I would prefer one that hasn't been painted thanks any how.

Baz
can i ask why lol, if it has been painted then surely it will be perfect and chip free? thats a good thing unless im missing something

Maybe just me but I think re sprayed cars have something to hide. Not saying this one does I'm just not keen on them.
Each to their own and all that.
thats fair enough, but if it has been painted then the painter will actually know what was underneath, then you could contact them and find out? otherwise you will never know, and it may just mean that the car has been looked after and the owner has OCD, like me and cant stand scratches
which i think is the case if its from someone on this forum, we have issues!
but yeah i can sorta see where you are coming from, i just think if it has been painted then whatever is hiding has been fixed if it is a decent painter

That's true pal, but what if a car goes to a painter who is friends with the owner they aren't going to tell you it's been hit. As his mate is looking it sold.
I would just prefer a well looked after car that hasn't been painted.

I would prefer a solid car that is *perfect* and hasnt been painted, but it is impossible to find a perfect car in this shitty country with the shitty roads, after 10+ years of abuse of salt, grit, mud and stones its gonna have some nasty nicks, well thats on a mk4 anyway, and if you do find one thats *perfect* it will have been painted at some point anyway probably (but i could be wrong)
