Looking very soon - Cheap Auto
« on: 07 April 2009, 17:44:42 »

After the omega went belly up i got a cheap VW Golf which has done me well but the gearbox is on it's last legs and i really really want another Omega :)

Has to be an auto, preference for either the 2.0 or tractor as i'm a poor student nowadays and need the fuel economy :)

My student loan is paying for it :) so end of April ish

Other than that  spec etc not too fussed, has to be running tested and taxed with at least a few months on each.

Budget - err as low as possible - hoping under £500

I am looking to sell mine - 2.5 auto '98 S plate, 94k.

New oil pump, DIS & HT leads, cambelt kit & valves (after previous one went) - runs superbly. MOT to Dec 2009. (passed last one with flying colours)

Downside is body work - usual rust spots on rear arches/ door and couple of scrapes from the car park.

If you are keen, post back and I will put up some pictures.  :y

Although it looks like a nice drive.

Multimap measures the carbon footprint in "a small car" for this journey as 126kg. I guess the meggy would give out slightly more!

Sorry i've been noseying about is this a 2.5V6? i assumed 2.5 tractor?

I'm not wanting a 2.5 - i'll be doing a bit of running about at college and the fuel economy is a big issue so no way i could afford to run the 2.5 with all the mileage...unless the v6 is somehow more economic than the 2.0 ???

how bad is the fuel economy? i reckon it's going to cost too much for me to run though in comparision to a 2.0 or tractor???
