Default My DD for sale: 1992 Volkswagen GTI 16v

I picked this up a few months ago but I need to pay off some bills to finish up stuff on my miata. Price is decently firm but I'm open to offers, lowballers will be ignored and/or poked fun at. Not in a huge hurry, but freeing up income would be awesome.

Hustler hates these cars, so also ignore his comments.

Don't be afraid to ask questions or PM me for a number or just email me at [email protected]

I'm up at school in Boone, NC so I could meet you up there or outside of Charlotte, NC.

Car: 1992 Volkswagen GTI
Color: Tornado Red
Miles: 111k
Title: Clean
Mods: Techtonics Tuning Mild Steel Exhaust, GR2 Shocks, H4 Ecode conversion, Modded Airbox and K&N Drop in, weighted shift rod
(This thing sounds great, quiet but deep)

Also available: TT Chip, Neuspeed front strut bar.

New Parts:
-New clutch and axles (less than 300 miles with receipt from previous owner)
-New Brakes waiting to go on
-New Fuel Pump(s) and filters, also w/ receipt from previous owner.
-New Timing Belt and Tensioner
-Metal Impeller Water Pump
-Upper and Lower Radiator hoses and Crack Pipe
-All accessory belts, spark plugs, oil change.
-New front bumper clip, turn signals, tail lights, door striker posts, rear hatch shocks, rear tow hook cover, antenna etc.
-Brand New Battery
-Brand New Tires
-Brand New H4 Headlights
-Lower mileage 9a transmission with highway fifth gear
-Repainted rad support, plastic pieces near ECU, etc etc. Overspray pretty much taken care of.


Good:
-Low miles!
-Recaros are in great shape minus the inevitable cigarette burn on the drivers seat.
-Very little rust (2 small spots, check pictures)
-Runs like a scalded dog
-Water pump and all parts associated with the timing belt have less than 25 miles on them. Car cold starts fine. etc.
-Brand New Tires: Falken 912s (195/60R14)

Bad:
-Minor dings over the car, mostly in the hood. Trim comes with the car, missing the small piece in the pass rear, its off because I was replacing all the clips and ran out of time so I left it all off.
-Hood Hinges are bent, waiting on new ones to come in so I can replace them. Which is why the hood is off in the pictures.
-A small rust spot in the rocker, and some minor over spray from a paint job in the engine bay. (Rad support has been resprayed, as have the
-The shift box needs to be rebuilt, I have parts to do the box.
-locks stick from outside, work from the inside not sure why yet.
-Radio not hooked up, headliner has seen better days, and two of the pass. door panels need to be re-glued.


Price is $3300

The car has almost all of the main maintenance done that you would need for the next 60k miles, TB/WP, Clutch, Fuel Pumps and Filters. It just needs a bit of cosmetic love. I'm not completely firm, but I wont come off much, I'm either going to sell it and pay off bills, or keep it and figure something out.

More pictures will be up shortly, let me know if you want specific ones:

And...
Here is a video so you can see how it sounds, car is cold, so ignore the condensation and the lack of revving it past 4500...its deep, but not overly loud at all.

True, but I'm prolly going to pick up a cheap bike for the summer, pay off some bills and start looking for a mk4 to daily once I graduate...either that or a ABA-16v turbo project in a beat the hell up 8v...because those motors are rediculously sweet.

Then again, by the time I get this thing running perfectly (just ordered G60 Trans mount and a new front motor mount, looking for an older style rear bracket for the pass. rear mount) It will be a nice daily and I really wont want to sell it...lol.

Its on the Tex, but nobody seems to want it. It needs a bit of cosmetic TLC, but for the amount of maintenance/mileage on it it seems to be a fair price.


I really like this thing, I fixed the timing so she purrs at idle and is aggressive as crap over 4k w/ the airbox.

Here are some bay shots for anyone interested:
