Hi, new member looking to buy 3.0 V6, advice sought.
Hi everyone, first post here so let me tell you a story....
My wife has been wanting a nice little 2 seater convertable for some time now, she had looked at the Audi TT etc and of course I did my best to tell her that we couldn't afford one, where could we park it etc..... until today. We were having a meal at a restaurant when we went outside for a cigerette ( I assume it's okay to say we smoke on this site ??? ) and sat there in a little court yard was the most beautiful yellow convertable, it was a 2002 3.0 V6 6 speed, one owner, 25,000 miles, just had cambelts & pullies done, pinaferoi ( spelling !! ) 4 pipe exhaust system, good tyres, not a single chip or scratch on it etc up for sale at £6500 !!!
It was love at first sight for me and my daughter but the wife is unsure about the colour and thinks it'll be too fast for her, of course I lied and said it wouldn't be that fast and would be quite economical if driven sensibly, well once we have it, it'll be too late won't it.
Now what exactly should I be looking for/at with this model ? any hints, tips, links etc would be grstly appreciated, how much is servicing, seen a couple on ebay that say the clutch has been changed, one at 30,000 miles !! is this normal ? What did they cost new ?
is this a GTV or a GTA or what ?
Many thanks in advance.
