Here we have for sale 'Bodger', a rough and ready MK4 Golf GTI. I only bought this back in December to use as a runabout until I'd found a suitable replacement for my old camper van and it's been perfect for the job. Alas I haven't quite got another camper but I have got something for pulling a caravan around with a couple of kids in tow so its time for Bodger to move on again.
As you can see from the pictures the bodywork is very much rust free, however there are key scratches to almost every panel and a couple of scrapes to wheel arches (I bought it like this hence it being a cheap runaround). As seems to be the way with these things, I would say the bodywork looks a little better in the photos, the scratches and dings are a little more obvious in the flesh.
Mechanically it seems pretty sound. The clutch and brakes work well and the gearbox feels surprisingly tight for the mileage. I've replaced the thermostat and the coil pack in the time I've had it.
Obviously given the price, there are some flaws (along with the battle scars).
- The oil pressure sensor needs replacing. There is a warning that the sensor needs replacing on start up and after a few miles the dash sometimes reports an oil pressure problem.
- The passenger side window doesn't work - seems to have come off the runner.
- Sometimes you need to press unlock twice to get both back doors to unlock - a common quirk!
- Front tyres could do with replacing pretty soon.
- There is only one key and the casing is a little worse for wear, there is a bit of tape holding it together.
- No stereo.
In all honesty it drives great and it has been quite a nice feeling not having to worry about where I parked it.
It's MOT'd until June 2018 and quick look at the MOT history seems to indicate it hasn't been having anything major going wrong.
Currently located in Ball Green, ST6 (Stoke-on-Trent).
