VW Open Air Low Mileage £1000

Recommended Posts

Looking to sell my 2005 1.0l Lupo E Open Air. Mileage is currently 75,100  - it is used infrequently so won't go up by much. 

To summarise the modifications include:

Retrofitted OEM Lupo GTI bi xenon headlights (professionally rewired, sidelights and full beam work spot on)

Full GTI interior including seats, leather steering wheel, seatbelts and mats (excellent condition)  

GTI aero front wipers and arms

Lowered on coilovers

VW Polo open air wind deflector 

OEM MFD radio/sat nav (navigation doesn't work but would be well out of date if it did). I have fitted an aux to the unit so can plug in an iPod etc

ICT illuminated leather gear knob

Rear wiper delete (with glass insert)

Team Heko wind deflectors 

Rear light clusters from MK1 Arosa

Side indicators from MK4 Golf 

VW UP stubby aerial

Car will be sold with the standard steel wheels (14" OEM star lite alloys pictured can be included but not for the advertised price)

OEM roof rack pictured and Thule bike carrier are not included for the advertised price but, as per the alloys, can be sold at an additional cost

Other points: 

Hard to find Open Air model - the electrics work perfectly and there are no leaks or tears

Well looked after. The interior in my opinion is in very good condition for a 14 year old car

Only covered 10,000 miles in the last 4 years

MOT until 25th July 2019. Three advisories

Timing belt replaced at circa 60,000 miles. Paperwork to back this up

Part service history - last service completed at 62,000 miles in 2015

Paint on the rear bumper has started to peel and needs attention. Either a respray or a better condition bumper off of eBay would sort this

Interior window winders need new knobs as they broke off

Bodywork is overall good, few scuffs, dents and scratches. Photos provided of these

Condition is overall very good. No rust and nothing majorly wrong. The car drives spot on - I regularly make a 300 mile round trip to Kent and is absolutely fine on the motorway. Reluctant sale but need something bigger.

Would like £1000. I'll be happy to answer any specific questions. Viewings can be arranged in West Bridgford, Nottingham.

Don't flame me, but most people will see it as a low E spec 1L with nice headlights. A fair amount of damage will affect the sale price. If you get everything fixed (front/rear bumpers, side skuff and handles), you might get £1k. You'd get more money back by putting everything back to basic and selling the bits. The open air extra wont affect the price, nor will the MFD (pull it and sell).
