if your getting 35-40 out of a 2.0 twin spark im sure you will get good mpg, i average about 40-45 mpg, but i am very heavy footed, in comparison when i had a 147 twin spark i was getting about 20-25.
well my car is good, and i will take £3000 for it absolute minimum, which is cheap, i started a thread on here if you look about value, and they all said £3995 was a good price (my original asking price) - i have had very little interest in the car for some reason, only 1 viewing, who said they decided to buy a cheaper one (non q2) but i can assure you it is worth the little bit extra, to be honest you could sell and swap the wheels, mirrors and interior for a standard set and make £1000 back easy
(of course dont do that because it looks amazing! but just putting it into perspective as to show the extra money is well worth it- even just for the q2)
im happy to take a p/x to close a deal- but i dont need one, so i would literally just be putting it back on ebay, so really depends how much you would want, i would rather cash because i have already priced mine low! private sale custom valuation comes back as £3550+
and if you look at what my car has had done mechanically wise since last year, you will see its had alot done, far far more than any others i have seen, it really is well sorted mechanically, it needs the nearside upper arm doing but i have a nearly new one here ready that i would fit before the sale, and being completely honest it could do with a better quality set of tyres on the front- this is a quick car, and very torquey, in the rain they do not give much confidence, tyres are well legal, but they are mixed budgets.
