      I am in the Navy and will be stationed in Pearl Harbor for 3 years. I know the island well as I was also here from '02 to '06. I've only owned VW's. My wife doesn't care either way and so drives whatever she gets her hands on. But now it's my turn. I was gonna go brand new, but not so sure any more. I'll have like $7K to spend. Any one out there gonna be wanting to sell their dub this fall, or next summer when i get back from deployment?

      Oh...And i love Audi's too in case some one has one of those. And preferably no automatic transmissions.
      Thanks.

      The Navy hasn't shipped 2 vehicles in at least 10 years since I joined. You can ship two if you wanna pay a grand. I don't have a car anymore. Once I get one I love I'll probably pay to ship it or just drive it.

      Yeah, I see your post man. But I'm used to seeing fairly flawless conditioned Corrados for 6-7K. I need reliability at that price range. My wife will shoot me If i buy a car i need to put money into. Might as well get a new GTI, Which I may do when I get back from deployment next summer.
