      96 cabrio
      2.0
      auto
      green paint in decent shape. Some scrapes, few chips, peeling clear in a spot on the hood.
      black leather-no rips minimal wear.
      black top-less then 2 years old-oem unit with all new fame.
      tires are less then a year old.
      power windows
      a/c works

      I replaced the interior and top cause the car had sat in the sun and everything was dry. All the interior is from a 98. Swapped the dash, carpet and everything. Added the glove box and center console. All the locks have been swapped to match...One key car.

      -Replaced the front lip
      -added foglights-new oem hella and switch
      -black hella tails
      -smoked clear fender lights in place of the badges cause they were brittle and broke when i washed the car.
      -replaced all the seals around the top
      -Tune up including...Plugs, wires, cap, rotor, all with less then 50 miles on them.
      -Replaced the battery, timing belt and water pump(i have another pump new in box to include)
      -flushed the trans with new filter.
      -I have a Jetta front clip in sequoia green for the car, Lights, hood, grill and extra headlight switch with fog light option to include.
      -kenwood cd player, Its older but works.
      Comes with some other spare parts i have like tierod boots, oil filter, hardware for the interior thats extra.
      -factory floor mats
      - factory top cover for when the tops down. Black
      the only rust in the car is 2 spots in the passenger fender(pictured) its not through yet and i cleaned out behind the fender to slow it down..It could be scuffed and painted.

      Here are a few pics. New ones coming this weekend once i clean it.







      ok so here is the bad. On 2 different cold days i have not got it 100% warm and the car died when it goes in to reverse or forward gears about 3 times then is fine. If it warms up its fine. I honestly think this is a sign the tq converter or valve body is going out. I could be wrong cause i flushed it twice now and it gets better each time. The car sat for years so it could just have junk in it. I was going to vr swap it but don't have time to yet and i need the car to be a trust worthy daily for my girl im worrying about vw autos now.

      I'm asking 3k for the car with everything i have for it. Im open to reasonable offers that are cash from people who are right there ready to make it happen. I dont want any trades cause If everything goes well this weekend i may just buy the new car.

      I can also make a deal to 5 speed swap the car or vr swap it for a new owner if they want it.

      Thanks for clearing it up...I didnt think it was cause its different then my old classic green corrado and it looked different then joeys gti...i guess i could have hunted the code.

      Looks like an amazing car. The interior looks perfect. If I didn't have my accident, I guarantee I would have considered it for the GF. Swap all her GLX/euro stuff into it.

      No clue. A million and one calls and nobody has come to check it out. I have a lead on a 96 vr gti...I was too busy to check it out this weekend but this week im going to try to grab a friend and shoot down there. If i snatch it up im going to put the vr in this car and call it a day.
