      XC70s sticker close to 50k new, and even in 2015 the only way to get HID headlights is to spring for the top level tech package. Our 2010 doesn't have them, yet my $25k, 2009 Volkswagen came...

      This is precisely why I don't mess with CL most of the time. Saving a few bucks isn't worth this garbage. :laugh:

      I sold a set of winter wheels earlier this year to a decent guy, but it took the...

      Assuming you're talking about me - in fairness,...

      Assuming you're talking about me - in fairness, my GTI has 92k mi on it. It's not anywhere close to CPO age/mileage requirements.

      But yes, it has me questioning getting another... at least...

      The thing is - it isn't really a show car OR an auto-x car right now, because it can't do either one well (auto-x is hard if ABS/TC/ESP is constantly wigging out mid-run).



      It may sound that...
    7. That's what triggered the thought of selling it,...

      That's what triggered the thought of selling it, honestly. It's harder to justify pouring money into it to fix mechanical issues if I can't ever get it back to "perfect" due to paint problems. I...

      I've been working on this very thing for a few months now. Finding one that is relatively inexpensive, reliable, manual, agile/auto-x capable, torquey, reasonably comfortable, and available at local...

      This has an almost A8 look to it - VERY nice! :beer:

      Don't get me wrong - I really like the GTI. I've actually had three different MKVs since 2006. It's just this particular MKV that is a turd. If this car was what I thought it was (repair-wise)...

      The previous owner wasn't an enthusiast, just someone who tried to follow the maintenance requirements as spelled out by VW. At least, that's how he pitched it to me. The off-the-books paint work...

      :sly:

      They offered me 20k for mine, in literally showroom condition. Carmax is a joke around here.

      I got approximately zero interested parties for my '14 BRZ Limited (<6k mi) away at $24k, so one with a reasonable amount of miles for a two year old car should be south of 20k by now.

      Give it...

      A fair point - pay now or pay later. Unfortunately, the car I bought moved the "later" part to "now." I think my big concern is the unknown; the tensioners and ABS issues have me jumpy. Will the...

      Definitely a front runner if I buy something new (or at least warrantied). It's a sh**box on the inside but it was a blast when I test drove it. Kind of the best of both worlds between a BRZ and a...

      I should have put "clean" in quotes in my original post. I had a friend check it out for me as it wasn't local (GTIs are non-existent here). I'm not sure I trust his judgement anymore... The...
    17. Keep the GTI, or trade on something newer/more reliable?

      I hate to have to do this (again), but I'm honestly stumped on what to do. I have a '09 GTI that I bought in March to replace a BRZ and eliminate a payment. It was a clean, one owner car with a...

      True, although it would be a helpful tool for getting the rear of VWs in air to take the rear wheels off. When the same pinch weld point is needed for both the jack and the jack stand, getting a GTI...
