My new work car
Published 17/01/2014 @ 18:53:27, By walter.
The gearbox of my '99 Toyota Yaris (the car I used to drive to go to work) broke down some weeks ago, but I decided not to repair it since it was simply not worthy. I was going to find an Audi A2, but suddenly I found this: here you are the Yaris replacement:

a 10/2003 Volkswagen Golf 1.6 Time with the GPL. It's one of the last Golf IV series produced: 1 preceding owner (my current employer :roll: ), 157.000 Km with full VW Service history, absolutely mint conditions :smile:

My "new" garage:

Well, it's obviously nothing special, and I know... It's not an Audi :oh: But it still belongs to the same "family", and this will be my work car-only (besides my family "mule"), so it doesn't matter at all. :smile: And the fourth series of the Golf has always been my favourite one, besides the first series: I don't like very much the latest ones (V,VI,VII), for example.

Complimenti per il tuo nuovo acquisto, sembra davvero nuova! Hai fatto bene a prendere una macchina con il GPL da una persona fidata, perchè spesso chi le vende ha delle noie con l'impianto e ci si troverebbe con un auto inaffidabile.
Ma la V8 ce l'hai ancora? Non la si vede nei paragi.

I found the IV and V rather boring (but I like the newer ones), but it is still interesting to find one in good state after do many km :smile:
And it is good to have that one to not use too much your Audi as everyday car :grin:

@ Neon > La V8 putroppo ho dovuto restituirla esattamente un anno fa al precedente proprietario dopo una serie di misunderstanding e di "complicazioni" con le procedure per l'immatricolazione. Non farmici pensare va là, solo a pensare a quella macchina mi piange il cuore, non so cosa darei per averla adesso... Avevo trovato un esemplare praticamente perfetto per i miei gusti :sad: Da allora sono continuamente in cerca di un' altra V8, ma non ne è ancora apparsa neanche una bella e ad un prezzo onesto in vendita: già è un modello di per sè rara da trovare qua in Italia :kiki:

@ antp > I hardly ever used the Audi as work car indeed... It's too precious for me :whistle:
Anyway, 157.000 Km is rather a low mileage for this kind of car.

Indeed, "so many km" was a little exaggerated.
My 206 had 114 000 km and 10 years, it was looking bad mainly due to many small scratches on the body. If the required fixing (normal for a car of that age and km) were done, it could most likely also still run for some time.

Ah mi dispiace non lo sapevo; peccato davvero! Spero riuscirai a trovarne una, prima o poi

It looks immaculate, wise choice. :smile:
How your garage, as you call it, hasn't blown away yet is a mystery though. I poured concrete on steel poles to support fibre-cement roofing, wood side-paneling, when I should have used a party tent. Damn...

Well, walter lives there, where millions of people like to make holidays in the mild and warm Mediterranean climate.
Something total different than the rough, stormy and salty North Sea-neighborhood of the chicomarx-village.
