    Run! I'd be worth about 8-900, please don't buy a 1.0 car as well i've regretted it, if you can stretch to more money 6 months down the line you will be glad.

    No such thing as a 1.0 Punto

    It can be either a 1.1 or a 1.2 on an R reg.

    If you have to have a little car, Peugeot 106, 1.1 or 1.4 petrols seem abundant in your price range.

    Sounds about right to me.

    You could sell a dog turd for any price you like if it had a VW badge on it. People buy the badge not the car with VW's.

    I wouldn’t go for that myself i think you could do abit better and if you do go for something else i think you would be happier maybe try a fiesta or 106 there nice first cars and you can get some real bargains. Remember avoid any second hand car with cluster lights :D unless its a Lexus :)

    A certain 5 door saloon from Ford manufactured between 96-99 should be great for your money. ;)
