      I have a 1996 GTI that I've owned for 5 years. The car was purchased from Pignataro VW in 2006 with 45K on it. It was owned by one of the mechanics.. It now has 119,0xx miles. I have all 4 keys the car came with, including two plastic w/light keys, one rubber key, one mechanic key, and I have the serial number, so the dealer can cut you new keys.. if you ever wanted. I also have the origional window sticker + the window stickers from when the car was purchased in 2006.


      There a ton of time/money that has been poured into this car. The most recent work included a ton of maintenance + some upgrades:

      Timing chains/guides/rails/tensioners replaced at 110,000. - At that time I had the head decked, intake valves oversized 1mm, Techtonics 276* cam installed, new lifters, Techtonics HD VR6 valve springs (The machine work was done by NW connecting rod.)
      The head was reinstalled with a mk4 metal head gasket (10.5:1 compression) and all new hardware. The thermostat housing, thermostat, crack pipe, etc. were all replaced at the same time, along with all of the other associated gaskets (due to the head being removed for machine work)
      The clutch/pressure plate/flywheel were replaced as well, with ACT's HD pressure plate, and eurospec's lightweight flywheel. (Which was rebalanced by perpetual balance in Marysville)
