why would anyone in this day and age buy a 14 year old car..wtf

there are cars screaming out to be bought now all over the country.

even if the bomb proof audi has a good engine i very much doubt the same could be said for the rest of the car.

rover james, have you some sorta of a hidden agenda against me... seems so its just funny looking at your 'likes this' to other people comments.
Interesting view point , just out of curiousity what would you buy if you wanted to spend around a grand on a diesel car ??? ( and yes I do know that there are loads of cars screaming to be bought , not that many mind you for a grand with two years nct) but enlighten us culchies

Oh, and mine has 175k on it, not quite the 180k that the OP is lookin at but I reckon it'll get there easily enough in a few months.

I bought it a year ago this month and have done 20k in it. It's never let me down but I did have to replace the oil cooler which was a dirty bastid of a job in the snow last December.

Other things I have done to it are:
1x Rear wheel bearing €60ish
2x rear shocks €240
4x springs €160
2x tie rod ends €50ish, can't remember
2x tyres €85 ea.

It's a grand car but could do with a bit more oomph. I'd say it's far from t's original 110bhp

for a grand on a diesel car, i could just go into spar, buy autotrader go to the bargain basement and pick any diesel car at random.

tbh, any diesel car for a grand is hardly going to set the world on fire.

I am looking at potential cars, a diesel accord in the 07/08 era and also a TSI golf.. as i am told that 40mpg is the way to go now and 2 litre+ petrols are dead end material

was looking at a 2.4 accord type s, as i liked its rarity and bomb proof'ness but not sure i am keen on a marriage also to it.

what a poster said on old cars being just as good as newer cars is true enough as most people in ireland treat cars like dog s.it, sadly.

i have seen some (old!) cars in the uk almost pristine.. full service history, floor mats.. the works.

makes irish cars for sale terribly sad.
