Previous owner had the car since 2010 and it had never been near a track before I bought it we have only done a few track sessions and its been fully serviced after.
I've owned several Gti6 and Rallye's over the years but never had a Xsara VTS before, I was very impressed by how well it drives on track, much stiffer than a 306 Gti.
We gave it a good check over replaced anything that needed doing and have done 4 x half day track days.
The car performed very well, reliable, quick and easy to drive on the limit.
In fact its really impressive for a standard road car eg round Cadwell Park and Lydden Hill and Brands it was superb, it was also good round Thruxton although you need a bit more power round there.
I have now bought bought a race prepared car hence no longer needed.
Aircon blows cold was re-gassed in June and still comes our nice and cold
engine and gearbox really strong no issues, original clutch does not slip, engine does not tap or use oil or water
cambelt done 2014 10,000 miles ago
bodywork original all panels match, no rust, couple of dents that you only see up close.
4 x recent semi slick track tyres these are great on this car on track, road legal, also has 4 x normal road tyres for normal use on a set of 15 inch Rallye alloys (scruffy).
interior good, drivers seat bolster is worn
some history not full history but genuine mileage backed up by MOT history, now on 103,000 miles
suspension brakes, clutch and rear beam all good cambelt was done 10,000 miles ago.
Nov 2017 just had some work done - new front shocks, new rear pads, NSF wheel bearing, new pinch bolts, new oil and filter, new MOT.
2 remote locking keys
4 branch exhaust manifold and cone air filter fitted - sounds fab - but still have original airbox to go back on
Recent top mounts and rear exhaust
Bad bits - has some scruffy points
drivers seat bolster is worn common on these (I do have a spare race seat will include if you plan using it on track)
couple of minor dents on the roof (tiles come off the house and bounced off the roof of car) and one on lower sill under passenger seat, this did not put me off buying it as it actually looks quite straight and tidy at first look.
CD player is good but radio loses signal after about 15 mins use
Good strong late model VTS that drives really good,
has some minor cosmetic issues but that didn't put me off buying it, good car for track / road use for very little money and keeping it standard like this makes is much easier to insure.
I can email detailed photos or whatsapp them over to you if you get in touch o7710 844 677
located Guildford but viewing also in Twickenham. Great value track car ready to go.
£995 ono not interested in low ball offers would rather just keep using it for occasional track days as its fun and seems to be reliable/copes with the track days no problem.
