Purchased July of last year, has been my daily driver since. Completely rust free. Testing the waters as I'm wanting something a little more adult. Would be interested in an A4 B5/Allroad/etc. Offers are always welcome. $4000 OBO. PRICE DROP $3500

See "build" thread http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?5790954-New-to-VW-My-98-GTI-VR6-Silver-Arrow

VR6 with approx 170k. Current shows 226k on the cluster due to the previous one failing. Maintenance records will reflect mileage. Includes spare VR6 long block with recent timing chains/guides replaced as well as new oil pump and pan.

Everything electronically works:
AC blows cold
Heat blows hot
Working keyless entry with a keyfob.
All windows roll up and down properly.
Truck release works as intended.

Have a comprehensive binder with maintenance receipts dating back to 2004.

Used only premium fuel and Catrol GTX 5w30 every 3-4k with an OE quality filter.

No oil leaks. No coolant leaks. No leaky anything. :beer:

Recent maintenance within the last year includes:
New aluminum shift bushings by wolfyy98
New heater core.
New water pump.
New thermostat/housing/water pipe.
New backup light switch.
New Coolant Temp Sensor.
New oil cooler seals.
New front brakes/rotors.
New tie rods.
New parking brake cables.
New oil pan.
New transmission mount.

New ball joints
New sway bar end links/bushings
Replaced secondary air injection system.
Brand new tires from Discount Tire with additional replacement warranty on all four mounted on GLX BBS wheels with BBS caps.
Brand new (2 weeks old) custom catback exhaust with receipt.

What it needs mechanically.

Needs new drivers side axel boot. (Includes pair of replacement axels. Just need grease.)
Current lowered on stock struts/Neuspeed springs. (Includes Bilstein Sport Shocks w/ another set of front and rear H&R springs)
Airbag light is on but have not investigated. Will update with more information.
Parking brake light stays on sometimes despite new cables. Will investigate further. (Update: After further investigation it looks like the drivers side rear caliper does not fully disengage the parking brake causing it to drag slightly. Need to fix this)

What is needs cosmetically.

Paint is well taken care of. Clay bar and waxed a few weeks ago and I've done it three times since I've own the car from last July. Has minor door dings on both sides of the car. The front bumper has a ton of rock chips as well as the bottom part of the grill and some parts of the hood. Drivers side fender has some dents and chips as well. Someone tried to break into the passenger side door and damaged it a bit but it functions just fine.

What it includes.

Genuine Hella clear tails
Genunie Hella dual rounds. (current in paint to match)
Ecode brackets and wiring harness.
Powder Coated Copper Metallic Intake Manifold
Spare valve cover.

Some pictures. Will update with more detailed pictures.
