First post but I would like to see the car go to an enthusiast.

After spending a lot of money getting the car to a standard I'm happy with it is time for a change. I have looked after the car as I would hope any enthusiast would and have spent much more than I expect many general car owners would to make sure things are right. Certainly more than my friends etc who think I'm a little OCD with my cars.
The reason for the sale is to change to a BMW 335 as want to go to rear wheel drive again.

It took me a while to find the car I was looking for as I wanted a manual with the hard to find rare Recaro seats, this meant a bit of a search to find the right vehicle. Eventually I found this car and though it was missing a couple of small options that I wanted these were easy to sort, hence the fitment of cruise and satnav. Unless it had been a very late model I would have been swapping the satnav anyway so wasn't an issue.
Car is only run on V power and always allowed to warm up before using high rpms. I am the fourth owner.

The car has just been serviced on the 13/08/2013 at VAG Auto Care Services as recommended on this forum.
There is nothing for the new owner to worry about I asked Gaz to look over everything and ensure there was nothing that needed doing before I put it up for sale. Only advisory on last MOT was front lower suspension arm rear bushes. These were replaced with Ibiza cupra solid bushes at the recent service. They make a nice improvement to the steering response, whether because the old ones were worn or not it's better and hasn't brought any increased vibration or noise that polybushes can some times create.

The car has a full set of nearly new matching Pirelli's P Zeros, front tyres were fitted this April when I took the winters off and new rears at the end of last year so the tyres have only done about 1,000 miles or less.

In the last 6,000 miles in addition to normal service items the car has had the following replaced, all with original VW parts.
Full four wheel alignment in April 2013
Recall done for coilpacks on the 20/07/2012
Brake fluid change
New Spark plugs
Haldex service
Aux belt replaced
Front lower suspension arm rear bushes.
Fuel filter
Pollen filter
Air filter
New Battery

I also replaced some of the interior trim pieces as they had scratches such as the drivers side arm rest.

Has the new updated satnav and Bluetooth connectivity

Paintwork is in good shape but does have small marks and stone chips as to be expected.
Front bumper was re-sprayed to get rid of stone chips end of last year and detailed last December.
Car is regularly cleaned and protected. Washed using snow foam then washed using the two bucket method before being protected. I always use good quality products like Dodo juice, poor boys, auto finesse products to complete the wash and protection.

Alloys have a few marks so would need a refurb to be perfect. Didn't worry me as I was happy to use them as winter wheels.

I think this is everything, though I may have missed some options etc. Any questions please get in touch.

I would rather the car went to an enthusiast as is so am advertising it on the forum first but if there isn't the interest I might think about selling the seats on exchange and the RNS510 and the Bluetooth kit separately, lower the price and put it on PH, AT.

Car is located in East Yorkshire.
