wow, really clean
g.l on the sale
I have been in Manhattan now for over a year and my GTI has been in storage in Washington DC while I have been working here, and the time has come to let the GTI go as there is no way I am going to be able to keep the car in Manhattan, and I hate to see it not being driven (although it does get monthly drives to keep the motor and everything running smoothly)
Bought in August 2006 brand new
Color: Reflex Silver
Model: Pkg 0 w/manual transmission, cloth checkered seats w/monster floor mats and satellite radio
Wheels: 18" Huff with Pirelli P-Zero tires (less than 1000 miles on tires)
Condition: Mint condition, no dings, dents, or major scratches; clear bra installed on first day of purchase, so no rock chips or any other issues to deal with. The car basically looks the same as the day it left the VW dealer. Note that there are NO holes drilled in the front bumper, so the front end has a very clean look to it; a brand new GTI OEM grill was installed about a month after purchase due to dealer drilled holes
Engine: Pristine, no issues, 3000 mile oil changes every six months with Pentosynth oil and Mann filters
I have all documentation of all oil changes; the car has never seen snow, ice, and has barely seen rain. There are lexan covers for the front headlights, so they look brand new. This car is completely paid off, and title is in hand. Located in Washington DC, currently stored in a climate controlled garage.
Price: KBB places an excellent MKV GTI at 18,400 with about 25K miles; I am pricing this one conservatively at $16K. I am in no rush to sell the car, and if I don't get the value of the car, I will keep it. But, I want to sell to someone because I feel that keeping the car in storage is not allowing it to be used to it's full potential.
Please PM on here, or for faster response, email @email@example.com
I will have photos posted in the next couple of weeks when I can get to the storage garage and take photos of the car for everyone. But basically, it is a mint, MKV GTI with no mods, looks like it came from the factory, and is ready to go right now for the right VW enthusiast.
Here is a pic of the car when I brought it home brand new (note that the wheels were swapped a week later by the VW dealer to the optioned 18" Huff wheels)

Bumping for views; car is currently in a DC climate controlled garage, but meetings in person can be arranged to view the vehicle. Remember, title in hand, this car is ready to go, just applied three coats of Klasse Glaze to it a couple of months ago!! Current tires have less than 5000 miles on them.
All recalls have been accounted for through the end of 2010. The car still has 18K miles, no additional miles have been logged since I posed this ad. The cam follower has been checked three times by VW (mostly because of my own OCD and this forum) but there has been no signs of wear or other issues.
Here are more pics. Please email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org, as my PM system on here does not work well.
(the last one is the storage garage it is sleeping in right now)
To answer above questions, and to update what I may have left out:
1. All recalls performed through December 31st 2010 (not sure what has popped up in 2011)
2. Cam follower checked- three times by VW
3. Tires have about ~300-400 miles on them, and are Pirelli P-Zero
4. I have both carpeted embroidered floor mats and monster GTI floor mats for car (both brand new)
5. No one has ever sat in the back seat of the car, and the car has never been used to move, or carry anything (the trunk may have been used once or twice for groceries, at best)
6. There is a complete clear bra on the front of the car, installed professionally at a cost of $800.00. It is still on the car now, and as you can see from the above pics, I have waxed it monthly so you can barely tell it is on the car.
7. I have OEM Lexan VW covers for the headlights that have been on the car since day one, so the headlights have no pitting, chips, or any sign of haze. You can see the small clips that hold them in place on the car in a couple of the above pictures.

Sorry guys, been away on business for the last few weeks.
Another bump for this amazing car waiting for a new owner; the weather is getting nicer so you can take advantage of the Z rated tires on this bad boy!!
As always, contact me @ email@example.com as I don't get on here nearly enough as I would like to
I'm pretty interested, but I'm not coming up with the same value you are (Coming up closer to 13k in excellent condition). I'm looking to spend around 12ish based on what I have seen GTIs go for. I have no intention of insulting you, but if you could work on the price more, pm me. Thanks.
