      I originally posted in this thread waaaay back in 2007 or so - somewhere in the middle pages - and have since done just about all of the mods he listed. Great Info here, so free bump. :beer:

      My 87 8v Scirocco was $10,100 MSRP

      My 2003 Jetta GL 1.8t was $20,800. Monsoon sound @ $395 was the only other option (besides $500 for the motor). Performance steal of the century.

      Was eggplant a Corrado color- or did we just call it that?

      Espresso? Mocha? Toffee? Wintergreen? Spearmint? I know I have seen all of these used someplace-

      Nice.

      Want nightmares? Look up the entire "Secondary Air Intake" system for my 1.8 turbo VW.

      Conversely, my Honda's entire PCV system costs $20

      The system works. Make a really fun-to-drive car, and people will forgive.

      I can only imagine honda or toyota buyers who switch to a Mini or VW. Culture and maintenance shock. They are going...

      I know dyno results aren't gospel, but I love seeing the results each owner gets with their vehicle specific mods.

      I have a good guess regarding HP & TQ that my car will show on a dyno- but I...

      Dealer quoted me just 2 hours to install the entire harness kit. ~$200 total labor, and I already purchased the harness. I will GLADLY pay that for someone else to do all the dirty work.

      I bought the full wire harness kit about 1 year ago. I just don't have the time nor energy to do all this work. I will see if I can get the dealer to do it all for less than $300 - that seems fair...

      Duh- we missed the obvious. Crank and cam sensors are prime suspects. Do them both if still original.

      P1296 might just be the coolant temp sensor. $10 and 10 mins if you can reach it. There's also a TSB or recall IIRC

      Do it when engine is well rested or else you get hot coolant facial. :laugh:

      If you already did the coilpacks, you should probably look at doing the wiring next. They sell a kit that gives you the entire wire harness (going from all 4 coils up into the black "waterfall"...

      Hey Speedy- do you still have the ABS Module and wire harnesses? If so how much shipped to Charlotte NC or Jacksonville FL?

      Thanks and free bump.

      Hey all. FIRST- I am quite aware that this is the R32 forum. But I have a relevant story. I THINK LOTS OF RED JETTAS AND GOLFS ARE SUFFERING FROM THE PEELS.

      I only own "niche" vehicles- and I think you do too? My simple rule is to imagine what I would pay for this car if I was a fan of the same "niche" vehicle. Then - unfortunately - subtract about 2...

      I am here looking for comparable cars to mine = 03 Jetta 1.8T w/110,000 miles, chipped with all the motor, suspension, and brake mods too. I can't believe you'd sell...
