Flozza Posted 15, July 2007 Report Share Posted 15, July 2007 Hey there. I posted a while ago as I was about to buy a 172 for what was probably too high a price. I ended up not getting it and looking for something else...until I saw the same car advertised for $2000 less a few weeks later. So I pounced on it. Couldn't be happier. It's a stock 2001 model with now 97,000km on the clock. I got it from Cartwright Euro who did the 100k service. I've had it for three weeks now and it hasn't set a foot wrong. The only thing that hasn't been perfect was the fact that the rear numberplate is only attached at the top and rattles a bit, so I gotta fix that up and a plastic bit on the driver's door squeaks, but not badly. I deliver pizzas, so I've been having some fun...but compared to the old Golf I was driving before the limits are just so much higher that I've decided I really need to take it to QLD raceway or somewhere to see what it can do. On the roads I'm just gonna end up losing my license or worse. Another one of those driver training courses is still on the cards as well, plus a run up the dragstrip at Willowbank and a dyno session. I saw on youtube that you guys occasionally do that sort of stuff, so if you'll let me I'd love to tag along some day. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
