    Thread: FS- 2007 Campanella White GLI 6sp 67k $11,500 in NJ

    1. 02-22-2012 10:25 AM #1
      I just recently moved closer to work, and no longer am tied to having a 2wd car that gets over 30mpg. I need a diesel truck again for towing.

      That being said this is my fourth VW, I had (actually still have) a 87 Quantum, two 1.8t B5 Passats and now this Jetta. I am the second owner and have a clean NJ title in hand. I have had the car since just over 36k.

      2007 Jetta GLI
      6sp Manual
      67xxx miles

      The outside was professionally detailed in september before winter. The car is cleaned often, always by hand. I have reciepts for all work done to the car. I am so OCD with my cars that I have EVERY gas reciept proving that only 93 octane was used. Anytime there was work that needed to be done it was performed by Oldskool Industries. The car should speak for itself, I wanted a Wolfsburg and shopped them for a month before deciding on a GLI, and spending another 3 months waiting to find a clean one off a lease.

      The car has tinted windows, 45% on all windows. Just enough to cut the sun glare and keep the car cool. I consistently get over 400 miles per tank and average 31-33mpg.

      Updated PCV
      Hawk HPS pads/OEM rotors
      Cam follower done at 40k, and again at 60k. I can schedule an appointment to have it be shown to prospective buyer if worried at all.

      No check engine lights, no worries

      I have all OEM parts also (brand new OEM air filter, too). The tires on the front now are General Altimax studded snow tires, only put on in november. If someone wants to buy the car but doesnt want the snow tires and would prefer I match the rear Kumho tires with a matching set up front I could work something out like that with the buyer.

      I am an adult, I needed the car to drive 80 miles a day when I had to go to the office for work. I always used full synthetic and checked everything out top to bottom. I never chipped the car because of fear of resale for being beaten on. The car was plenty zippy for what it had to do. I got the downpipe and intake off of a coworker who traded in their a3 for a new s4. The downpipe does not have a cat, so there is a CEL. I vag-com the car with Dave at Oldskool whenever I am there for something for the car and there was never anything funny going on other than the car thinking there is no cat. Hence the CEL. I have the DRL's turned off, and fog lights set to stay on with the highbeams.

      Some things about me and the car-I drove this like a 80 year old woman. I have a race car that sits in the garage, a 550whp turbo Neon. I dont get into the diagonal stickers, slammed with crazy offset and going out and doing highway pulls. This was a nice car for me to commute in, and I treated it as such. I can say with all confidence I've never gone within 1000 rpm's of redline. I have never take traction control off, even in the two brief times it snowed. I used the part of the powerband that was useful, from 2k-5k. I feel like I should share these types of things.

      Things about the car
      -The brakes are amazing. They bite hard and are great for what I wanted in my DD, safety. The only downfall to these brake pads are that they are loud at times. They will squeal, and I understand that yes it is ok with me and not bothersome, some people would mind. Brake pad changing shouldnt be a reason you dont like the car.
      -There is about a 6" area of swirl on the back bumper where a truck tire was brushed against the bumper. It is so subtle that when the car is detailed I dont even remember that its there.

      The car shifts great, makes no funny noises, has nothing wrong with it. The interior is very clean and looks like it was cared about, like a new car would.

      Any questions post up or email me-giambronejoe [at] g mail dot com

      I will take some interior pictures soon, I just got the chance to snap these at work yesterday with my phone. There are no holes in the front bumper either, that was inportant to me when buying mine. Just want to make sure someone knows it wasn't from a state requiring front plates.

      forgot to add that I will most likely be having my mechanic put everything back to stock and getting an alignment. If someone from the forum wants the car they can have all the aftermarket parts with the car. It is harder to sell the car as it sits to a non-enthusiast with the suspension and CEL from being catless.

      Bump.

      The car is at Oldskool right now. Stock suspension and stock downpipe are being put back on. I am going to just do plugs and cam follower for the new owner since I have both here and they will not be fitting on anything that im buying after this is sold.

      bump for a few people interested via email too

      Is it a 95? Sedan or coupe? Stock? Maintenance history?

      I have a friend looking for a car and I have forwarded the post to him. I will let you know when he gets back to me.

      Is the CEL cleared now that the downpipe is swapped back?

      It has since been cleared now that the primary cat is reading through the computer.

      Thank you for forwarding the post to him!

      If it was a 95, or a sedan I would have said yes with cash on top. But with 10 years difference I would need cash on top. There is a $3500 difference in value in the cars all things aside.

      Thank you for the offer though.

      Bump!

      Bump. Calling detailers today to have them come detail the car while I'm at work. Car is all back to stock.

      What a difference getting in this after driving my 87' Quantum for about a week.
