      PRICE DROP: 2500/Bo! Need this gone!!!

      Will possibly consider welling it without the diamond racing wheels. Will come with 14" oem snowflakes with 195/65/14 falken azenis 615k with some life left

      Also willing to drive up to 250 miles in any direction from Buffalo NY to meet with a buyer or drop if off at your front door.

      Well the time has come, i believe its time to sell my scirocco :/. reason for sale is I bought a R32 last fall and i just plain don't drive this anymore. Plus my work schedule prevents me from ever hitting track days or auto-x events. So rather than just let it sit i would love for someone to buy it and use it like it was intended . I LOVE this car and it is a total blast to drive on any curvy roads. it has been driven once since August and aside from clearing the bad gas out of it, after that it drove no problem. I will be putting gas and heet in the tank this weekend to prevent that from happening again.

      A little back story about this car. I bought it from Jodi Doyle(vwjodi) in April 2010. He had bought it from a friend who use to race it and unfortunately crashed it into a tree. Jodi rebuilt the car from the strut towers forward and it came out flawless. He also pulled and rebuilt the engine. the build can be seen here http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...3742832/page43 and it details all of his work. The car HAS A CLEAN TITLE!!!!

      now onto the details

      car has approx 135k miles on the chassis. speedo/odometer stopped working at ~127k miles. NEVER been driven in snow.
      Car has been spray painted satin black. when i got it it had mis-matched fenders/hood because of the rebuild. i decided to say FUKC it and paint it black.
      Front fenders have been cut to fit the wheels better.
      1.8 16V
      Engine has about 12k since rebuild
      New Rebuilt Head
      New HD Valve Springs
      Autotech 260 Cams
      50MM Intake
      K&N Drop in Filter with swiss cheesed air box
      TT 2.25" Exhaust, straight piped
      New Radiator, Upper Hose, Dual Jegs Electric Fans.
      New Lower Temp Thermostat
      New Green top CTS
      Short Shift Kit
      Synthetic Diff Fluid
      Gauge Package over the Warning Buzzer system.
      Snowflakes with Falken Azenis 615K tires with some life left
      15x8 ET0 Diamond Racing Steelies with 5mm spacers to clear the calipers. has 195/50/15 Dunlop Direzza tires with plenty of life left.
      Raceland Coilovers
      4 wheel Discs (of course)
      New Brake Pads
      All new super blue brake fluid.
      FULL cage including door bars
      Kirkey Racing Seat
      5 point harness (expired)
      Autotech 28mm Hollow Rear Sway Bar
      Poly Front Control Arm Bushings
      Vintage Porsche Steering Wheel
      Radio Installed in the Glove Box
      Heat/AC delete. no heater core or anything
      Power Steering delete
      Newer Fuel Pump


      Car will also come with TONS of extra parts, including a full set of extra door and side glass.

      Needs:
      Could probably use an alignment
      proper paint job? if you're not into the spray paint
      up to date harness
      speedo that works
      occasionally bogs on cold starts right after starting. i always let it idle and rev it a few times to clear it out.
      Tiny rust spot on the hatch. but CLEAN shell, no rust on the underside or anything. One fender has a tiny bit of rust inside, but i got it off a different car. i do have a spare fender that hasn't been painted which has NO rust.

      I drove the car as a DD over the summer with NO problems. Only questionable thing is the Jegs racing fans do not pull a ton of air, so in traffic it starts to get a little hot. but has NEVER overheated. it has NEVER left me stranded

      The car is located in Buffalo, NY. i will post up what pictures i have and will update in the next few days with more and better pictures. if you have any questions don't be afraid to ask. PM me or email me at Stephengray1185@hotmail.com. i check the vortex regularly so PM shouldn't be a problem.

      looking for 4000/OBO. I'm not in a hurry to sell and don't really need to. Just looking for a good home for it and someone who will use it like it needs to be. also some of the money from sale will be going towards an engagement ring....

      willing to trade for
      R32 260/264 cams + cash






      (pardon the tape, it was holding the flares on after i used some epoxy to re-attached them)





      FWIW this is what it looked like when i bought it


      Rolling shot from the way to H20i 2010. before the spray paint and Diamond racing wheels

      Thanks! I hate to have to sell it, but it doesn't really make sense to keep it anymore.

      I may be interested if/when I get some money together, but it won't be a while now.

      How easily would it handle an 8 hour trip?

      Shouldn't be a problem at all making the trip. I drove it to and from H20I in 2010 which is 10 hours each way from buffalo.

      And since it's the middle of winter currently it doesn't leave my driveway. So let me know when you get $$ if you're still interested.

      Honestly I'll probably regret it some day. I really love the car, it's so much fun. But now I'm in R32 heaven and don't want to drive anything else. But for now I could do better things with the money. My woman need a ring and my R32 needs cams haha.

      I wonder if this one was roaming around Buffalo wayyyy back when I lived there with mine. There weren't many, but I bet I saw most of them at one point or another.

      How long ago was that? I've had the car since 2010. Before that it was in Vermont for 15+ years.

      There is a clean black one that roams around niagara falls now but usually just sits parked.

      I bought it in Vestal in 1990, started at Buff State in 1991, Transferred over to UB in 1993, finished school in 1996 and left to move South Jan of 97. It was there with me the whole time along with my silver 83 GTi that I used for winter. The main ones I remember seeing where black. There was a guy that lived around UB South Campus with a black one with leather. There was also a silver one with euro lights and bumpers that I'd see every once in a while on Elmwood, typically having dinner but I never got to talk to that guy.

      Sorry to jack your thread..... but ya know...
      Here's how mine looked back then. ALL I did was drive it around... study shmuddy....
      ...minus the surfboards.

      Dang, that's still a good looking car even by today's standards!

      I think there is only a black one and a red one floating around these days.

      I really love this car, I'll be sad to see it go. All I want is a good home for it.
