Damn. You spotted my offer. I was thinking of selling the bits for at least £800 then returning car to normal. Then sell that for maybe 600 for a quick sale... easy money.... :)

ok, to keep @Rich happy. I'll pay a grand with everything.

 

So which bits are worth £800???

How are they balanced? Do they have more meat on the back of the head area?

They are a very marmite wheel and i fall into the disgust camp on them but those splitties do make them easier to stomach...

Probably with a lot of lead!

Dont know how much metal they have  - understand they machine off the lip and barrel to accept the split dish and barrel form behind, seen quite a few 80's 90's OEM wheels tarted up like this, the Teddies are a extreme but poor example, early smaller rims are ideal leaving space for the dishes:

Hi Sarah,

service history good as I have serviced it myself every 5k, it is a sport tdi so has the gti interior abs brakes,electric mirrors and windows, mot till august,

it will come with a set of front windows that were tinted to match the back but never fitted, also will come with a stealth shelf with 6x9 speakers fitted, also there is a tdi tuning unit fitted if you wanted that aswell.

the engine was changed at approx. 195k with an engine that had done 80k, the reason it was changed it or the car had a bad vibration which we thought was the gearbox so changed both, at the same time a new clutch was fitted and the cambelt was done at the same time, 

the vibration was still there and believe it or not it was actually the drive shafts so had 4 new cv joints fitted and that cured it instantly!!!!!!!   still have the original engine and box complete,

total mileage is 215k at the moment with it just had a service on Saturday 11th april, 

my daughter has had the car since 139k as we bought it in 2015 to replace a sdi,

have pictures and can send them to you no problem,  IT NEEDS A CLEAN,

only now selling as she needs something a little bigger otherwise she would keep it as it is so reliable and is no trouble being easy and cheap to work on,

700 is strong money for that in that condition  and mileage. Give it a proper good clean and polish, and you may get a bite.

Leave the teddies on, don't clean it and I'll swap you a 9n3 TDI.

How much with all the extras you mention? Cleaning is no problem. And teddies?

obviously these teddies are worth some money, as I keep being asked about them, are they really that rare???

You'll find out one way or another so I may as well be honest. Answer: Yes. They'd look lovely on one of my Mk2s.

Obviously value is subjective and condition matters a lot, tyres etc. I'd probably value them at around 200-250 judging them just on the photo. Mint sets with mint tyres have been known to sell for 500+ (scene tax for you) but obviously it's what someone is willing to pay with this COVID shite.

I would've been interested but not at that price, nonetheless good luck with the sale matey hopefully a swift one in these current conditions.
