Picked up my A2 today and what a drive home in the teath of storm Ciara.
I bought the car as a runabout to use alongside my Hilux as a clean car, rather than full of mud. The Lux is great, but not so fuel efficient and parking it in town can be a nightmare.

I bought a bright red 2005, 1.4 tdi se with 65k on the clock and with full history.
Pics to follow as soon as I can get back outside in the daylight. Managed to dismantle a roll spring checking out the ash tray so will need to work out how to put that back in.

Its due a service and mot in the next few weeks so will find a suitable specialist to give it a once over at the same time. Suitable suggestions for the side of Bristol and Bath would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. Prepare to get hooked, these cars get under your skin!
If not already done I would recommend paying the one off fee for access to the Marketplace where all sorts of goodies and temptations are for sale.

This popped up on a fb forum maybe worth following up?

Keep your eyes open....you may spot a yellow Colour Storm around the area soon......the good lady and I spend quite a bit of time around North Somerset and once Project Jasper is sorted we'll no doubt be using it for our travels.....

Welcome! That's a fairly low mileage especially for a TDI. If you no luck with recommendations near to Bristol/Bath then I can recommend Audi VW Independent at 25 Lysander Rd, Bowerhill, Melksham SN12 6SP https://www.audivwsales.co.uk/aftersales/ . I've been using them for 10 years or so. They even have an A2 but don't give it as a courtesy car as the gearbox is knackered and it's done about 1/4million miles!

Hiya mate, I’m in Saltford near Bath. Recently bought a tdi and I’ve gone right through it. Happy to give yours a look over. No worries if not.

Cheers
