This has already been posted in the for sale section but i thought i would post it in the main area too as there seems to be a lot of people on the hunt for R's at the moment so wouldnt want anybody getting caught out with this one.

As some members on here will already know but Its been clocked and the seller isnt telling future buyers about it. Not to sure if he is the owner who is posting and talking about it in the bottom link, may have been sold on yet again since that guy?

The Ebay link to the car

The link to the thread about all the clocking and history with the car.

By all accounts this is Waynes old R. (sold way before any clocking)

I saw this car when i was looking to buy an R32 over 6 months ago now, im sure i worked out with a bit of help from google and a past owner that the car is at least 30k wrong !

LEMON!

Apparently a few have reported them to the trading standards.

That is NOT an honest car. I feel sorry for anyone who ends up buying it :?

If we keep bumping this up then we should hopefully stop anyone on here or who joins here to look for a R32 from buying this one

This is brilliant!!

Surely the trader selling this car is breaking the law by not disclosing its true mileage??

Anyone know how far out the mileage is? Forever the optimist i am, anyone got a hunch what might actually wrong with the car? could be worth just going to see it, telling the guy you know it's clocked, offer him a shit load less not to tell the police, buy it, give a solid service & once over and look after it from there on?!

could be a win in there somewhere boys (and girls)!

Clocked isn't the only reason. It's had a dodgy paint job, at least 10 keepers, a rattly clutch, an amazing amount of times this car has been for sale. R ownership should be a joy.

For 6k there's been beautiful cars pass through these doors! Honesty is king

What did the seller tell you about it and how does the service history read dude?
He showed me 2 papers on it, 1 was Awesome GTI with ecu upgrade, and the other was Miltek exhaust £900 ish was going to show me more after we got back from test drive but I was put off with his attitude when we got back so I left it
