    Let me save some time right away, IF you are the type of guy that inspects a 9 year old car for rock chips or that lights on the dash worry you.....please stop reading now.
    This car isn't for you.




    Basics on the car.
    -One owner
    -Never wrecked
    -Nav
    -135k ish miles. It is my DD




    Good:
    -New billstien shocks (month old)

    -New Whiteline bushings (month old)
    -New H&R springs (month old)
    -Euro left side cubby
    -Euro under seat storage
    -OEM roof rack
    -Rear seats sat in half a dozen times.
    -Year old conti tires
    -BSH motor mounts
    -Magnaflow sports (louder one) exhaust. Not installed, but goes with the car
    -VF intake
    -GIAC tune on engine and trans (currently stock tune, but the fully loaded files could be installed via VIN#)
    -Recalls all done.
    -Plugs changed 6 months ago.
    -New parking brake cables
    -New CPS
    -No hole grill
    -Interior is VERY nice
    -New OEM battery (last week)

    -New brakes on all four corners. (last week)

    -Caliper slides rebuilt with stiffer bronze bushings (last week)

    -New parking brake cables
    -New front wheel bearings (last week)

    -New ball joints (month old)



    Bad:
    -Patch of rust under drivers side tail light.
    -Both front fenders have had the paint rubbed off from the low life....and rusted
    Wonderful news is VW covers the car for 12 years against corrosion, so have them fix it! Best part is you don't need to be the original owner!
    -Driver side front blinker stays on.
    -CEL is intermittent for exhaust leak (flex pipe has a small leak) off for a while now.

    -AC is weak
    -Some times when it is CRAZY cold the car doesn't warm up fast enough and the CEL pops.
    -Dime sized crack in oil pan, patched with JB, no leaks. (have new OEM pan I can work into the deal)



    Like I said, I would rather overly state the bad and scare off a buyer then have someone be unhappy or waste time.




    Car has been my DD since I bought it New.
    Has been been well used, few AutoX, track days, road trips, rallys, ect ect.
    This is NOT a show car at all. Would MUCH rather scare off a buyer then have someone show up and not understand used cars.


    Asking $7000 cash.
    VERY open to offers
    Open to some trades though.


    Trades can be up or down.


    Have some NEW OEM parts I could work into a deal.
    -waterpump kit
    -T stat kit
    -tie rods
    -OEM roof rack


    Make any and all real offers.


    Current pictures.
    Car actually looks a fair bit better in person too.

    Neat car! Interesting thing, vw's corrosion warranty. Would be neat to see them fix the small stuff on this one.
    I'm kinda glad you're so far away and I just spent 30 grand on a pickup. I'd have to at least try to convince my wife is need it, lol.
    Good luck with the sale, man.
    It ain't easy bein' fat and greasy.

    I just want to move on to something different.

    Spoke with the certified VW body shop and they said it shouldn't be a issue.
    Said it normally takes a month of so to get approved, but has to go through a dealer.
    I just haven't bothered to get the ball rolling at the dealer yet.

    I wish this was closer. Would make a bad ass motorhome conversion and tip my already edgy neighbours off the deep end.

    turn it into a beer truck for awesome parties.
    I thought that a cafe racer was a custom that you could do whatever you wanted and there is no right or wrong.

    The callaway ones are kinda their own animal....


    The P38 Range Rovers get a REALLY bad wrap.
    But I cant see how they are any harder to deal with then a similar year European car.
