Some pics for good measure:
NOTE: These BBS wheels are NOT the ones it will come with. You will be getting the 7 spoke Borbets as shown in all the other pics.

I have a 1992 MK2 GTI with a supercharged VR6 swap. It's in overall good condition. Body is in really great shape, minus a few minor issues with some plastic trim pieces (mainly a cracked wheel arch fairing and loose front grill due to the motor setup). The interior is in good condition considering the age. The headliner is missing the cloth covering. The manual sun roof works fine and seals well. The e-brake cable for the right rear wheel lightly drags occasionally only if you set it very hard the prior time you parked it. All it takes to get it loose is to tap the ebrake actuator assembly on that wheel. I'm guessing some grease or WD 40 may fix it.
Motor is in very good condition. Runs very strong, sounds amazing, the only thing to bear in mind is that it does need a head gasket. Once that is fixed you'll have yourself a very nice stage 2 V1 supercharged 2.9L vr6 motor.
I am selling due to problems registering it in VA because of the engine swap. Should not be an issue in other states. I also prefer to sell rather than trade only because I need the cash to fix my airplane. A partial trade for a reliable daily driver plus cash would be acceptable for the right amount. Car is located just a couple of miles northwest of the Washington Dulles Airport.
Asking $4500 OBO. Trades accepted on a case by case basis, subject to car/bike condition and or cash amount.

Hmm yeah if I cant seem to sell it I guess I'll look into registering it like that. How can you get away registering it in another county when you put the address you live in and they go off that for tax purposes though.
My main reason for selling though is that I need to pay for some maintenance on my airplane so the fact I can't register it was kind of a deciding factor to sell
if you ever want to straight trade i would love to have that car
What part of Nova you in? im in leesburg and im looking to sell my rabb for a more classic vw. Would love to take a look.
When i was in NYC, i was eating at a restaurant with my friend when Bill Murray passed by, took a french fry from our basket, dipped it in ketchup, ate it and said:"No ones ever going to believe you" before walking out.
Ahhh so your the one who built it! I was wondering if I'd ever hear from ya. Yeah she's a great car through and through! Did a good job man. I really do love driving this car and I really want to keep it but I'm just looking at other possibilities involving airplanes :-P. Definitely one of the most fun cars I've driven though. Are you going to H2O this year? If I still have her I'll be there, you should stop by and introduce yourself
Id like to have this. glws man looks clean
