Breaking GTI in Blue/Gray Anthracite

Tell us the process... if you are allowed to?

It's all openly documented (https://www.financial-ombudsman.org.uk), you just have a state why you think the funding offered is not fair/realistic.  I've yet to find the outcome of the GTI submission as the process takes a while.

However, on the Brabus I did a table listing all the cars of similar spec available (not many!) and then plotted a graph - mileage v price.  I then drew a line from the mileage mine had which provided a suggested price.  The Ombudsman service I though was very communicative and fair in their decision (slightly below my suggestion).  Obviously part of the argue with the Brabus (and Lupo GTI) was there really isn't enough changing hands to allow the price guides to list realistic prices.

Clever. And irrefutable evidence :) And you could quote dealer prices instead of gumtree

From what I've seen, good average milage GTis go for about £3.5k. Mint about 5.5 and poor about 2. I guess that is why traders import them from Japan and sell for about 5. Ovepriced for an import IMO. Especially when you have to declare that it is an import on the documentation. I dunno why, but people generally don't like imports. I had a superb mk1 golf gti import from Zambia... it was mint! When I sold it, didn't get as much as I hoped.

Not that bad under the melted plastic.

That's rebuildable... 👍🏻

Didn't get that hot by the looks of things. The door seal rubbers are still in place. When they fall off, that's when you know it's game over.

From the residue, I'd say it started around the radio.

I'd say all the CCM wiring melted it's insulation off and fused itself together at its lumpiest point.

There was a few extra wires behind the radio though.

What are you thinking of doing with it? Rebuild or strip for parts/body work bits (sills)...

Scavenge and profit.

There's no car there for me.

There is a fair bit of petrol in it though.

Everything moves freely, passenger has the bubbly corrosion but the drivers is superb and looks to have been replaced at some point.

I'd interested in some panels off that potentially.

Calipers, what do they go for?

V1 are off and they're now spinning by hand.

That took some work.
