This was won today with 5 seconds left on the auction. It is one of possibly only 20 odd 2.0 litre V6 Facelift Tourers ever made.

Spec is pretty non existent but the car is a lovely one and the owner was desperate for it not to be broken. She has her wish!

59,000 miles, belts and thermostat done too. :-D

I am off to pay for it shortly! :-D

Yes, because the 2.0 V6, became "Special Order" once the 1.8T was launched! :)

Ah but the 10 made were all part of the same 'special order' so a bit of a mystery as to why they were made!

The car is now on the driveway and the battery on charge. Lots of money has been spent on this car and it has been well looked after in its time.

Tomorrow I will give it a thorough going-over, a good clean / polish and catalogue all the bits n pieces she came with.

That will be a challenge. The CAN bus won't prevent starting though. Good luck with it!

I hope we can resolve it without too many issues...the rest of the car being so good! It looks like a 3 year old car not a 10 year old one.
