1992 VW PASSAT B3 WAGON (K reg) 2.0L - with B3 WGN private number plate!
Regrettably it has come time to sell my beloved B3 Passat. Pressure from the other half means I have to get a modern car to haul the kids and all their stuff about in, I would consider a B5.5 TDi Passat estate.
This is a wicked motor and has never let me down, nice and low on coilovers but just at the right height for the school run to get over speed bumps and up curbs fine. If you don't know much about these cars they are based on the same platform as a mk2 Golf, just larger, this model has the same engine from a mk3 Golf GTi, 2.0 8v. So this is quite a quick motor and handles really well, and also consumes fuel OK, not a thirsty VR6 guzzler, it could do with a tune up though as is running a bit rich. The car has full remote central locking and a fully working electric sunroof, the drivers and passenger windows are of the keep-fit type.
It sits on VW Snowflake alloys, got good tread all round, rears have only done a few thousand miles. All break pads have been changed in last couple months along with new disks on the rears. Is has a stainless steel exhaust that's sounds nice. Interior is pretty standard, apart from a Porsche steering wheel, the head unit flips out and is also a DVD player and has sat-nav built in, unfortunately it hasn't been able to play CD's for past month or so but I haven't got round to sorting it. In the boot is a Fli bass speaker, this kicks out some nice sound and gets the kids rocking in the back seat. Fitted to the rear are VR6 lights, which are a dark tinted colour, also the front has the VR6 clear side repeaters as part of the headlight unit. All windows from the rear passenger windows back are all dark tinted for privacy, including the tailgate window. I also have a spare set of headlights with HID kit that were originally fitted to the car, all the wiring is in the car but they stopped working a while ago, I've put the standard lights/bulbs on the car now and have kept with it this way as I do prefer them.
The car has 12 months MOT and is taxed until end of October. The mileage is quite reasonable for a car of this age and has done about 147K, this will go up. The car will also be insured on day of collection as i will be driving it daily so you can rest assured the car is fully legal to get you home when collected.
All in all a tidy car that is a little rough round the edges and like any old motor does need tlc, but I love the look. I was going to matt-black the bonnet but haven't got round to it and the bumpers could do with some linseed oil to tidy them up.
There is a small reserve taking into consideration the value of the B3 WGN number plate, which has to be the best plate to put on one of these model Passats! This plate would also be good on a Audi B3 platform car, or even a BMW Alpina B3 as i've seen a few B3 BMW's with a plate like this on! ;)
Any questions please ask, I am located right in the middle of the UK, Northants, and welcome viewings, just get in touch to arrange. Please remember you are bidding to buy, not to turn up and barter on collection.
Good luck bidding! :)
