I have owned this car for 5 years now and put a lot of love into it but I think it is time for me to move on. I bought the car in January of 2015 and have been slowly but surely making improvements.

2003 GTI 20th Anniversary #0754
Jazz Blue
155,XXX miles
6 Speed Manual (obviously)

Mods (By PO)
- catback exhaust w/Borla
- Carbonio CAI
- Larger SMIC (brand unknown)
- Rear Wiper Delete
- Aerial (antenna not attached to radio - never has been)
- Unsure if there is a tune

New OEM/Aftermarket Parts (bought by me and currently installed)
- Full Set of OEM Aristo's from ECS Tuning (with brand new Sumitomo HTR-Z)
- New OEM 20th Shifter & Boot
- New OEM front and rear GTI badges
- New OEM VW blue center caps
- Full Set R32 leather seats front and rear. No rips, tears, major wear, or burns.
- Clear bumper markers
- Hella Magiccolours Blue/Clear/Clear/Blue tails
- Depot Glass lens headlights

Other parts included in the full asking price -
- Full set of mint leather R32 doorcards
- Mint R32 steering wheel
- Three other sets of tail lights - OEM 20th GTI, Hella R/C/C/R (seen in one of the pics), and Standard Golf with orange indicator
- Mint OEM 20th Headlights (picked up and just never installed)
- Jazz Blue Grill
- Extra Monsoon HU with Code

Maintenance in the last 15k miles (done by Reflex Tuning & Quirk VW) -
Have receipts for:
-New Starter Motor
- New MAF
- New Front Control Arm Bushings
- New OEM Front Axles
- New Front Tie Rod
- New VW OEM Sports Suspension all around
- Timing Belt, Water Pump, Tensioners, rollers, coolant (139,689 miles)
- Rear Passenger Charge Pipe
- New Power Steering Switch
- New Rear Brake Caliper
- New E-brake cables
- New PCV Components

The Good:
- Everything I just wrote above this is done.
- Car presents very well and gets a lot of compliments.
- Clean NH Title in hand.

The Bad:
- CEL currently on for gutted cat (exhaust was on the car when I bought it)
- Some scratches here and there on paint - it's 17 years old after all.
- PO said car was hit at one point and repaired. Paint is all matching well just disclosing the fact that it was hit.

All that being said I paid $7k for this car in 2015 and adding up everything in the list above I am into this for $20k roughly. I realize that I will never see any where near that out of this car in my lifetime.

So with consideration I am pricing this as a lot with all of my extra parts listed for $9500 Take it all home. If you look up values on some of my spares and uninstalled parts I think you will find some value there. I am willing to negotiate a price without any of the extras, but would prefer to sell the lot.

I know I am probably going to get burned about my price, but you can either pay now or pay later. Go buy that one on Craigslist for $5500 and see how long it takes to get to the price of this one where most of the heavy lifting is done.

Happy to take pics of anything in detail.

Got my eye on something else. Open to reasonable offers and willing to work with the extra parts to work out a deal.

Bump - open to negotiations on price without some of the parts and spares.
