The 4.2 GU on gumtree

Post by graham1 » 07 Dec 2017 20:25

I can't post the link on here from my phone for some reason!
If you can find it on gumtree - what do you guys think? It looks pretty good to me? My wallet is already shivering. :)

This is the guy who had a 2005 4.8 GRX for sale, but price was too high & the vehicle had a questionable history.

You can see the 4.8 parts & extras he transplanted onto the 4.2 diesel.

I wonder why he is selling... he has only had the diesel for about a year now...

Those Seats look so nice WWW
But that is very expensive for a non tubo I assume.
The link to the drawer system soes not look to bad, but still. :confused:
Even thou I know the effort that goes into building boxes and brackets. But I know some things are only worth doing for your own vehicle.

Graham, there is a nice one in Vredenburg as well, I believe for a better price so put your wallet back for a moment! It's a 2000 model, burgundy color. Just spoke to the owner, he is on the forum and will post some pics and details later today :thumbup:

Yip, I noticed that too...

I dont think its a scam, but I know that he couldnt get his asking price on the 4.8 hence the parts swop. He ended up trading the 4.8 in at a dealer, so he is most likely trying everything possible to recoupe the loss.

In any event the price is too high for a non turbo, extras or not.

That is my opinion.

Do your self a favour, before you commit to buying a 4.2tdi speak to Michael at Sojo Auto.

He will help you make the best buy possible.
