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.

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)
