OK guy. I actually just bought this, last week off of here, but I am not really digging the 1.8 lol, would rather have a VR6. I thought it would be nice because it's a 337, but I am just not into it all that much. I bought it and was surprised at how nice and everything Shaun the gentleman I bought it off of was. He is a great guy and a great VWVORTEXER, lol if that is even a word.

I am going to ask $6500, I paid a little less, but spent over 15 hours cleaning this thing up, it was a little dirty. Shaun just didn't have time to clean it up for me and he was getting himself a 2010 GTi. I would be interested in some trades, just throw out what you have, but would LOVE to have a TDI I could play with and have ready for H20i.

Here is the list of mods:

2002 GTI 337

• OEM Recaro interior

• APR chip (stock, 93 oct, 100 oct race programs)

• APR turbo back exhaust

• R32 brake upgrade (Stoptech stainless lines, ATE Super Blue fluid)

• FK Highsport coilovers

• Peloquin LSD (Planetary Torsional Differential to be exact) with ARP bolt kit

• Greddy Type 31 Front Mounted Intercooler

• Greddy Type S BOV with diverter valve kit

• Greddy Turbo timer

• Neuspeed 25mm front sway bar

• Neuspeed 28mm rear sway bar

• O-bar rear lower sway bar

• VF Engineering engine mounts

• VF Engineering swaybar endlinks

• B&M short shifter

• ECS Underdrive Pullies

• Custom coilpack tiedowns

• Clutchnet 11lb Lightened Flywheel

• Black Forest Industries Control Arms with Polyurethane Mounts

• MK6 look headlights with LED strip (only been on the car for a month or so)

• Polo rear wiper

• Stewart Warner gauges (boost, oil pressure, oil temp, egt, a/f)

• JVC KD-ADV6160 DVD MP3 head unit

• Kicker Competition 10" subwoofer

• Kicker 200W amplifier

• Hella Magic Color Red/Clear/Red taillights

• R32 hood strut

• GTI Monster Mats

• Jetta Vents (illuminated and closable)

• RAAMmat sound deadening material in the entire hatch area and under rear seats

• VAG-COM KEY-USB Scan tool (I'll throw this in with the car since I won't need it anymore)

• Bentley Manual

• A/C blows nice and cold!


-Really the only flaw I would say on the car is the 3m Clear Bra on the car is aged, underneath the paint is perfect. Just need to take the time and use a heat gun and it peels right off.

If you would like to see the car or have any more questions please feel free to give me a call or text me at (301)988-1147.


Now to the pics, I took earlier. I can send you some more pics, just text me and I can send them over.

Also forgot to add, the timing belt and water pump were replaced with the clutch and the flywheel around 10K miles ago. Shaun the guy that I bought it off of said that he can get the invoices for me. All the work on this car was done at Induktion Motorsports.

I am outside of Hagerstown, MD. The CEL is on cause of the chipped ECU, but it comes with a stock ECU to put in if you need to do emisisons or something, and with that ECU it doesn't throw any codes. I am not to familiar with VW's yet only my second one. This is what the guy I bought it off of told me.
