So, I've just driven my late father's Golf down from Skye -- in some terrible weather -- and in many ways it's not as bad as I thought it might be. I even managed to overtake a couple of lorries on the A87 and A82, to the surprise of all concerned. Shame about the dead LEDs in the dash panel which meant I could see only the rev counter in the dark and had to do mental arithmetic to work out how fast I was going on the motorways! Did Fort William to Hemel on somewhat under a tank of diesel.

This will -- when I get the paperwork from the DVLA -- be on the appropriate section, but for now I'm hoping one of the fine people here might have an idea about its value? One owner, 52k miles on a 55 plate, most of the hand control hardware has been removed, and I've currently got the instrument pack out to have a look at the LEDs on Monday. It's a 1.9 turbo diesel, and I don't think the rear seats have ever been sat on (spent its life with the seats flat and a wheelchair and ancillary stuff in the back). New Avon tyres on the back -- I don't think it was driven except back from the garage -- and Toyos with about 7mm remaining on the front.

Any thoughts what I should be hoping for?

A good way to get the lowest figure is stick the reg into WeBuyAnyCar - and then add 10-20% for a more realistic cash price.

Yeah, they were saying £1800, but I'm not sure how much I trust them. Seems overpriced. But hey, that's why I'm asking.

Interesting weather you've had in Scotland the past week smile - driven up and back twice in ten days...

Hi neil,

I was looking at one of these with 100k on and was offered it for £1k.. £1500-£1800 would seem fair. It does have the bullet proof 1.9 pd engine so should have a demand.

It'll be better once I've fixed the instrument lights smile
