      Some of you know our GLI from local meets, etc.

      Bottom line is we need to sell her...she has become too much of a project to juggle with work, family needs, etc. We also recently picked up an FZJ80 for road trips, etc., and need to make space for that pig as well.

      The good:
      -1.8l 16v with German intake cam, Techtonics exhaust with a 2 outlet Magnaflow (looks stock-ish), Techtonics fuel enrichment device, K&N panel in stock airbox with side panel removed, ABD intake pipe.
      -5speed with short throw lever and ancient Momo knob.
      -Boge pro-gas w/H&R SofSports, VW Motorsport urethane bushes on rear shocks.
      -Large Neuspeed sways Fr/Rr
      -Quad grille
      -Hella fogs, factory fog switch, rear fog light and rear clusters rewired to EC pattern.
      -Hella Heckeblende
      -Recaros

      The bad:
      -Recently, gently rolled into a friends truck thus cracking one of the inner quad lights
      -Intermittent motor hesitation when cold/wet out, not constant
      -Needs an alignment
      -heater bypassed d/t leak
      -dash is mostly off on passenger side but complete
      -short somewhere related to DS headlight, works but dim
      -needs general TLC

      Will take no lower than $1k.

      Thanks in advance!

      Pics or it never happened haha

      I may know someone who's interested. I have the parts and know-how to get it running properly. Ask anyone who's seen my projects, hehe.

      Where are you located? I'd like to come by and check it out. I'm assuming you take cash, but are you looking for any trades + cash (car parts, etc)?

      Let me know, red.r32@gmail.com.

      Thanks!

      I'd like to come check it out, especially since the weather is still good, heh. Are you available to show it? I'm jsut over in South San Francisco, so I can head to RWC pretty easily.

      BTW, I also like to lowball, haha, so we may have some cash in hand. Let me know, red.r32@gmail.com.

      Thanks!

      Hey man, I am like 5 minutes away from your local. I can meet you anytime tonight or tomorrow to take a look at it. My cash is already ready. Please PM your text message numbers and we'll arrange to meet somewhere.

      lunis-

      I think we may have met at the In-Out/Krispy Kreme meets a coupla years back? I'd usually park in the old school side with radar, 959, etc. Can you PM me your #, please? I will be taking fotos in the morning for a couple of others that requested a few days ago.

      Although, I sense I may be arranging to ship her to Nairobi or Kiev after a deposit by someones agent fairly soon...lol

      Ok, here are the fotos finally!

      I will probably keep the fog lights, leave harness intact. See more below. Quads (most tabs intact) are E-Code and have a 3M-like protector, I forget the name:

      From a couple of years ago but pretty much looks the same, just a bit more faded and dirtier now...Rear E-codes, wired for EC including rear fog on factory 3-way switch with front fogs. ND frame is unavailable presently

      Side markers work. They go on with parking lights and alternate with signal (I never liked that but never bothered to change that. sorry). Our pig in the background:

      4 center discs and new hardware included, not installed. Sun roof intact and works.

      Note odometer. Trip computer works except for avg mpg. Hopefully, probably a sensor. That function is great on road trips.

      PS dash still apart from accessing heater workings, all parts are included, not installed. DS intact. Metal pedal covers.

      DS door:

      PS door:

      DS back door, PS is identical condition:

      Recaro interior is sofa king comfy. No Rips (but brake handle and one issue see further below), no stains :

      Only issue with front seats, also note seat belt release cover is missing on DS:

      Only issue with back seat, including fading along top. Speakers not secured. Ski boot intact:

      Oops! Brake cooling ducts included, not installed. Intact replacement spoiler included (thanks Ashkan!), not installed.

      Oops again! Good thing for those 3M (or whatever brand they are) lens protectors.

      Self explanatory, PS below windshield:

      Same here, PS front door edge:



      Enjoy!

      Would have considered a trade a few years ago, but the family has grown (at least in height ) , and something like that would just not be practical at this point.

      I will smog it closer to an actual sale, but it passed easily last Spring.
