Ok, so it's not a Volkswagen, but we still think it's worthy.  What we have here, is an e30 generation BMW 325i mated to the Volkswagen Group's highly tunable 1.8T four cylinder, and sending power to the rear wheels.  Heads in The Car Lounge just might explode.

This car is the result of what the seller describes as "a large amount of my life" being put into making this implausible swap work through use of many custom pieces, and a stand alone management system.  Since the engine is mounted longitudinally, the seller used a Toyota transmission and installed a limited slip differential to work with the transmission's close ratio.

The car is currently available for $7,000 on Craigslist and located in the Providence, Rhode Island area.  More images and information can be found right here.
