1997 ‘R’ SEAT Arosa 1.4 MPi Automatic. Registered 24/11/1997. Just 30,893 miles with an incredible service history file from new. MOT’d until 6th May 2018 with no advisories. An astonishing, time-warp car that would put many a 3 year old vehicle to shame. 2 lady owners (both acquaintances), first for 19 years up until 2016, second until now. The original owner part exchanged her then 11 year old Mini Mayfair (that had covered 13k miles!) for the SEAT – a considered decision to offer far greater comfort, refinement & reliable motoring. The SEAT was a very expensive vehicle of its type (made more so by the owner specifying all options) & this particular car would have been one of the very first in the UK. Sharing all but the badge of a Volkswagen Lupo, they are a superb, solid car that continues the build quality synonymous with the VW/Audi/SEAT group (unlike the smaller models from the same group that have preceded it). This was of real appeal when my wife choose the car. Low road tax & insurance. Amazingly economical. Mrs Maclaren originally specified the car with a Comfort Pack, Electron Pack, Metallic Nordic Blue paintwork & incredibly, air conditioning! If you consider that many ‘executive’ vehicles of the same era did not have it fitted, you will appreciate just what a rare option it is on a car of this type. Specification therefore includes ice cold air conditioning (fully working), 4 speed automatic transmission, power steering, central locking, electric windows, split folding rear seats & one touch door lock function. Original book pack, fully stamped service book, invoice & receipt portfolio from new including order form from 1997, 4 x keys with key tag, radio code, unused spare wheel & tools, dealer marked number plates & rear window sticker. The interior is simply ‘as new’ and given that the upholstery and carpets are pleasantly light in colour, it is testament to the fastidious nature of the owners that this has been maintained. The rear seats are likely never to have been sat on whilst the boot area is similarly unmarked. The paintwork is mirror perfect & smooth to the touch & as close to perfection as you will find at this age. Fully valeted & detailed throughout to include spotless wheel arches, door shuts, engine bay and behind the number plates! Looks, drives & even smells new. A genuine & very reluctant reason for sale. HPi clear with confirmation that there are no mileage discrepancies. A unique vehicle in terms of ownership, specification, mileage & by its very condition – you will not find another, guaranteed, hence fixed bargain price.
