He probably will - he's just trying to talk the price down. But he's
wasting his time. I've had a very good px offer from the dealer I bought
it from as new. Unfortunately I have to wait a while to get cab aircon
in the one I'm buying.

Incidentally I've had 4 VWs in the past with autoboxes and never had a
problem with any of them so I'm not in a position to comment about
availability of spares as I've never needed any despite clocking up some
considerable mileages in the other vehicles.

Must go now - off up to North Yorkshire in the Trooper.

Custard, I take it that you are not going to be making an offer then.

Another problem area too. T4's run best with the 2.4 and 2.5TF
engines, the petrol engines in them were crap.

Only 33K miles probably reflects the reason you are dumping it.
Anyone paying over 3.5 K would be daft, but good luck.

Thats the problem advertising on Usenet, people get to comment on the
crap that people sell
