I hope so too but it's down to the official competition and all round good guy easternkris  Chris! 🤔 😉 👍🏼



Wey aye we'll let you off this one time, mainly because I still haven't made it home from Milton Keynes after leaving at 6am to pick up some carbon bits for the mk1 

Someone is just about bang on the money and I Believe there could be a bonus point for within 50quid as well 



Cheers 🥂 guys have a great weekend …

Noooooooo!!!!!
Missed the deadline.
Any chance of an extension for the first week for dumb asses like me who have been too busy restoring their Mk1 to look at emails? 😉
Did I mention how well you looked at the AGM Golf Cabrio 😘
If I was to guess it would have been a bit lower than most.
£2022 🤘

Good morning everyone, hope you all had a good week and the weather is being kind to you where ever you are in the World.
It's really very pleasant here in Vienna, the sun is shining, not a cloud in the sky although a little fresh with a real feel factor of (-1).

Moving swiftly onto the results.

Week 1

1.jpg

1st Place               mattnsusie                                             £6,675     :ocf_emoticons__notworthy:
2nd Place                 watson                                                     £6,500      :ocf_emoticons__eusa_dance:         
3rd Place                     chris130256                                               £6,495     :ocf_emoticons__alright:   

So there you have it.
Now if we were to take an average of the prices put forward we have the following results.
Average Price was £4,481 (-£2,219) compared with the asking price of £6,700.

Not bad, not bad at all for the first week where we have a lot of new players and some older ones who might not be match fit just yet!  :thumbs:


See you all tomorrow morning when we kick off week 2.  ;)

I do apologize for the layout of the results but with modern day devices it's simply impossible to post up the results on a laptop for example and for them to look smart on all other devices and vice versa. I know I've tried!

I do the results on my laptop always because I simply need to but when I look at them on (my) smartphone they look like cräp!😕

Maybe I can take a screen shot of them on my laptop where they look good and post just that.?🤔

But the information is what's important as far as I'm concerned. 😉

You know Ken I've posted several warnings about supply and demand over here.

It's classic supply and demand.
I'm seeing about 4 or 5 cars hitting the market nationwide per week right now and maybe two of those are being readvertise.

If I look at the price of original but used parts in the UK they've gone up by say 10% to 15% this year but here and in Germany we're looking at more like 25%.

That has nothing to do with the weak Pound because I follow the market in Euros.

Now I know I spent there months in Hospital and I've not been driving as much as I normally would but in Vienna and Lower Austria I've seen between 8 and 10 other Mk1's this year.

There are like chicken's teeth at the moment for some reason, maybe next year it'll be a story! 😉 👍🏼

So it safe to say prices here are a fair bit higher than the UK 🇬🇧 at the moment. 😉

The mileage is wrong between the advert and the dash photo, 186k. Looks tidy and a good advert I recon he's after strong cash for this one £7107 for me

Back to the top
I will go £3468.

I request a swards inquiry about week placings.

I was fair chuffed I was awarded a bonus point for first stab at a price.

Or as in F1 the stewards did not like the award as getting up early on a Sunday to take part is akin to overtaking a Ferrari on the last lap of a GP it may seem fun but not in the spirit of the game.

I think you've reposted the same details from last week, or that's a very weird silver!
I'm going to go with £8250, because I plucked that number out of thin air.

That is one nice car. Not sure what the reference to candles is all about - I know Mk1 lights are pretty rubbish!

Being well off the mark last week I am going with £6995.

I was waiting for someone to spot that as that was going to be my surprise bonus point for the week.
In fact it was a mistake by the seller, all be it a small one.

So anyhow Chris award yourself 1 Bonus Point for that!
