Hello i am looking for a decent 225 well pampered needing nothing with mot & tax so ready to go.
i have registered but not able to check cars for sale? :roll:
am looking at early- 2002 reg ideally with a private plate incl but not essential.
i realise there are a lot of these on the market and i am willing to pay more than a stealer !
but wont pay over inflated prices we all have to budget!!
any pointers appreciated
regards mitch :wink:

Hi Mitch, Welcome to the TTF..
Service history is very important. cambelt/water pump every 65k miles or 5 years which ever comes first, dash instruments (dashpod) read correctly, coolant temp reaches 90 within a couple of miles & stays there.
Get written confirmation of cambelt/water pump change or reduce price by £500 & get it replaced ASAP.
3.2 V6 no turbo or cambelt to worry about, so should be more reliable, DSG may be weak link, unless you can find a manual.& a nicer exhaust note.
Don't rush into it. A good TT is a wonderful car, a bad un can be a money pit.
Plenty of good uns out there, but probably more bad uns, so as I said don't rush into it.
Hoggy. :D
