FS: 1996 VW Jetta GL 2.0 5-speed 145k mi SOLD

1996 VW Jetta GL 2.0 5-speed, Sequoia Green, 145,000 miles. In Roseville, CA, near Sacramento.
The Good:
I bought it new in Feb 97, single owner
Never been in even a fender bender
Consistent 25 mpg
AC works great
Kenwood CD/AM/FM with AUX jack
Momo Anatomico shift knob (fairly polished from use)
Rubber VW floormats
Stock speakers
Stock suspension
Stock exhaust
New heater core this winter
Cap, rotor, plugs and wires this spring
Just had new front brake pads and rotors installed (5/2009)
Several repairs in May 2007 (123,948 miles):
New AC drier
New clutch
New windshield
Various fittings
MKIII Bentley manual included
The Bad:
Oil cooler seal is leaking
Upper radiator hose is leaking
Slow leak in one tire
Left rear door pneumatic lock is broken--otherwise central locking works fine

The Ugly:
Fading paint in spots
Peeling topcoat on door edges, front bumper
Stock steelies, aftermarket faux-stock wheel covers
Rear emblem needs paint
Normal wear and tear on interior, not the cleanest (not the worst, either)
Basically, a well running blank slate in need of modest repairs and a good home.
Looking for $2500
