emailed the guy about the car and this is his response, seems a bit suspect to me…

Hello,

Thank you for contacting me about the 2005 AUDI A3 SPORT, 13,800 miles, registration number : YE55 MHF.

About the car : The car is in perfect conditions, no flaws or dents, no scratches or any kind of damage, no engine problems. The interior is in like new condition and has never been smoked in. The car is still UK registered so you will not have to pay any custom taxes .

The problem is that I had to move with my family in Portugal where I got a new job transfer. I brought the car here with me with the intention of driving it but when I found out about the very high import/custom taxes and all the restrictions regarding registration and emissions tests here I've changed my mind and I've decided to sell the vehicle. I want to sell it in UK because is still registered there.

As I'm unable to travel in the near future and I don't have anyone back home to help me with the sale I decided to make this transaction through eBay. So how this actually works? Simple: the buyer sends the payment to eBay and they hold the money until the car is delivered; I ship the car to UK; I get my money only after the buyer receives the car and makes sure everything is as agreed. I believe this protects both buyer and seller and it's the right way to do this.

The final price is £4,500 including shipping and delivery to your home address.

So if you decide to buy this car or need further information please get back to me as soon as possible.

Thank you,
Alexander Watkins

Could still have finance outstanding on it. Whatever it is, it sounds well dodgy.

£4.95 with the following;
30mpg
£1.10/litre of petrol
Guessing you'll probably do better than 30mpg though

Yeah, its the 225, only way to go! I don't like the shape of the cabriolet, plus even tho the back seats are almost unusable, it still has them which is a bonus. Also the cab is slightly more homo/hairdressery, and would feel a bit of a tit with the roof down Oops
