never thought id do it but im going to part with my gti to buy a TT. i love this car and its a lot of fun to drive i want to keep it and buy a TT but the wife says something has got to go we dont have the space or $$ for the upkeep on 5 cars (even if 2 dont run right now)

new last year:
transmission (bought with less than 39k on it)
MAF
throttle body
window reg (pass side)
slotted front rotors (have rears to go with)
other:
mobile 1 synthetic used since i got the car at 50k, changed at 4k regularly.
mintex all around just over a year ago.
Needs:
in my opinion it needs paint. the stock paint isnt bad but its ginster stage 1 paint. they all get oxidized because of the lack of clear coat. also the car was in a small fender bender about 3 years ago. the hood and fender were replaced (oem vw parts) and the paint on them is in much better shape and the color looks off under certain lights. same goes for the flares....they were clear cloated when painted so they have held up better and look a different color in the right light. when everything was first painted it matched up fine but time has taken its toll on the stock paint. i ve been meaning to paint the whole thing. its not terrible, just something that always irked me.
needs an auxillary fan control unit. the only thing this effect is theat the fan continues to run for 10 minutes after the car is turned off. ive been meaning to get one from a vortexer parting out a vr car but just never got around to it.
the CEl is on (big shock) throwing a code for secondary air. this comes and goes.
currrently the car has an eclipse head unit and some cdt speakers and, 2sony amps, sirius satelite radio, and a custom built sub enclosure with a cadence 12 that fits the left side of the hatch. unless the buyer wants to make a deal on the stereo stuff, i will be taking it with me and putting the stock speakers back in and a panasonic cd player that i have here.
the roof rack bars can go with the car but the basket and bike racks im keeping.
also any spare mk3 parts i have can go with it
looking for $6500

Re: (vdubberadoG60)

it sounds great... it has a slight ticking sound when running that its had since the day i bought it. its never gotten any louder and i was told that it was the sound of the timing chain and if isomething was wrong it would be loud.
shifts good, the tranny is fairly new. i wish it had a short shifter but thats a different issue.

Re: (vdubberadoG60)

Having just driven the car on Sat. and ridden in it many times I will say it sounds very healthy. It's never sputtered and has always felt super strong and pulls nicely. It shifts very smooth and is a typical VR6 tranny. I'd drive it where ever with out a second thought.
edit: I've owned a VR6 before and done the chains, his are making no noise at all.

Re: (ChristoffRudolff)

I'll keep an eye on this one. I can't see the price your are asking (I have the same car in black), but I will be there when you drop the price with cash in hand. How far are you from Woodbridge VA?

Re: (IBD12NV)

im 3 hours from woodbridge.
i think the price is pretty fair. there are a few other similar vehicles closer to stock on the tex with asking prices of 8000. you can submit your best offer and see what happens. i dont NEED to sell the car so im in no hurry to drop the price.

Yet another VAPOR dub going away...

Bump for one sweet and clean ride. I think he's exaggerated the color issues though, the thing looks good!

Agreed, as the official detailer of his car I can say that the paint is pretty darn good for a single stage.

Bump for a good guy and a sweet MKIII. Buy it before we convince him to keep it at our next GTG.
