  • For Sale: 2008 MK5 GTI 3DR Manual

    Hi folks, I have a very clean example of a 3dr Manual MK5 GTI for sale.

    The reason the GTI is for sale is that my wife purchased a new car and we decided to keep her old car because it was too good to trade in. I am now driving that car daily and the GTI is just not getting the use it deserves. I would happily keep it as a weekend car but I don't have storage.

    Works both ways my man, if you don’t want the car or price discussed maybe stick to done deal and / or don’t try and dictate you own rules to the crew here.

    No comment or reflection on the car, just the tone and script of the ad is a bit entitled….

      Nice motor alright and a great ad except for the last bit.

      Have I missed it or have you neglected to put the mileage up?

        Thank you for your feedback. I certainly wasn't trying to make it sound inherently deserving or privileged. Perhaps you could point out how the ad should be worded or share some good examples?

          Thank you for your feedback. Yes, it is a very tidy and well looked after example.

          Advertisement has now been updated with the mileage thanks.

            for me, the whole price is the price bit in large bold font would make me scroll on, and it comes across that you could be a pain to deal with, so I just wouldnt. Obviously, I dont know you, any you could be sound, etc, but the ad doesnt come across that way.

              Okay, that's fair enough, though I must inform you that I am without a doubt Pure Sound 😉. So much that I would happily negotiate on price with any backroads.ie members.

                    Ok I'll start so.....

                    I'll give ye €2500, 2 packers of Tayto C&O and a half eaten chocolate bar of your choice.


                    Sorry, GLWS, looks like a fine example but dont bite the hand that feeds you dictating terms before any engagement from potential buyers.

                    Especially the experts in here 😋👍

                      Not sure if this is a dig or just a bit of banter? Regardless, it would need to be Smokey Bacon flavour......

                      Additionally, to propitiate the "experts" the ad has been further updated for any genuine prospective buyers.
