Interesting VW Polo 1.2 TSi SEL - 'Provisinally Sold'

I say 'Interesting' because:

1. We bought it from the first owner - fellow 'batchatter' Chris Collins - on this FS Forum, 7 years ago

2. It is unusually hi-spec - with virtually every Factory Option when Chris bought it, new, at a List Price of over £19k

3. We bought it for my daughter, Jamie, on her 17th Birthday, in 2015 - her first 'road' car, which she has used until now (some of you may know Jamie from her racing - but rest assured, the Polo has been carefully used and looked after *smile*).

Good Bits:

- 2013 (13) Polo - 5dr SEL - 6spd Manual

- Finished in Oryx White Metallic (£900 option) with Black Leather/Alcantara Sports Interior (£900 option)

- 17" Boavista Wheels with excellent Goodyear Eagle F1s

- Reversing Sensors, Rain Sensors, Cruise Control, Heated Seats, Air Conditioning, Multi-function  Computer, Storage Pack, VW RNS 310 Touch-screen Radio/Navigation (GPS)/Bluetooth, Tyre Pressure Sensors, Fitted VW over mats and boot mat, Multiple Airbags - Excellent Condition throughout - No Accidents, Original Paintwork

- 74k mls, FSH (mainly VW) - will be supplied with fresh Service and new MOT

- Still covered under Official VW Extended Warranty (until March 2022) - we renewed it each year

- Everything works, as it should, and still drives like it did when we first got it

Bad Bits (very few)

-  Few very minor, hardly noticeable, cosmetic chips and blemishes - commensurate with use/age- but nothing unsightly

Price

As said, new it was over £19k. WBAC have offered £5,300 prior to inspection. They will knock a bit off for the minor cosmetics, but annoyingly won't add anything back for the hi-spec options or VW Warranty. We'd rather it went to a good home than consigned to the Trade, so we would be looking for £4,900. 

It would make a perfect 'first car' for someone (as it did for Jamie), or practical run-around (as it did for me, occasionally). Good swift performance and excellent economy. Easy in town or comfortable and relaxing on longer trips. Car garaged nr Tetbury, Gloucs

Thanks Patrick
