Asking $6,500
Current location: Kennesaw, Georgia
Full Timing belt service recently completed @ 125,600 miles. odometer currently reads roughly 129,139 miles and will go up a bit as it's driven once or twice a week.

Bought this car from the original owner at the end of March when all this virus stuff started happening. I travel for work, so i'm never home and haven't owned a car in years. Figured i'd buy something fun to drive that i could tinker with instead of dealing with a rental car indefinitely. I'm back on the road now, and have left the car with my best friend for safekeeping.

Enthusiast owned from original purchase. Original owner took excellent care of it, with all scheduled maintenance done accordingly. Never smoked in. Never had kids or pets in it. t's a southern car, living it's entire life in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

Will also include all stock items that were replaced during upgrades (air intake, crankshaft pully, outlet pipe, etc)

I just recently drove it from Atlanta, GA to Keene, NH and it was smooth the entire way. motor pulls strong, and clutch has excellent feel to it. On-board computer said it averaged 33mpg for the entire 1100+ mile trip.

Car is in great shape and has been well taken care of. That said, it is an 8 year old car. So there are a few rock chips on the front. a small scratch on the top of the trunk lid, a light scuff/scratch on the outside pillar between the passenger doors, and a light scratch on the lower front bumper corner on the passenger side. Also one or two very small marks on the wheels, not really curb rash, but marks. Also, the laminate around the very outside edge of the windshield is peeling a little bit underneath, and there are two very tiny rock chips at the very bottom center of the windshield that i hope to have repaired soon.

No check engine lights, no drips, no leaks, no funny engine noises.

If you have any questions, or would like a picture of something in particular, just let me know.

Asking $6,500 or best reasonable offer. If you're seriously interested, PM me and maybe we can work out a deal. I'd prefer to see this thing get driven rather than sit in storage most of the year.

interested in the car as I'm starting the search for something new. I'm new to the forum so couldn't find the ability to PM. Send me one if you can.
OP hasn't updated this yet, but the car is now in my driveway and the keys are in my daughter's possession. :cool:

Parent goals right there...in 10 years when my oldest starts driving hopefully I'll be on the forums for a great starter car for him.
I wish you all the luck. Her first was a 2001 Cabrio, I sold that back to the prior owner and upgraded her to this. Now we have "El Doce" (this car) and "The GLI" (my car)
