Kinda getting bored with my car just looking to see what's out there. I got it in barely working condition. I now daily drive the car and have a blast doing it. I LOVE my car and don't need to sell it. I just wish I had the time and money to make it so much better. My car isn't perfect but I get a lot of headturns. And I see a TON of MKIII's around where I live. The passenger fender is dented and dinged badly (I don't know what from). That's the only major dents on the car. I have a full set of Euro textured clip on moldings to go on, just haven't had the time.
I plan on getting fenders, a Euro hatch and getting the car painted within the next 6 months. Money has just been really slow right now considering I'm 17 and work a minimum wage job and get terrible hours.
I'm a really nice and honest guy, there's nothing I'm trying to hide here and I'm telling you everything I know about the car.
And for the price $3,750 OBO.
All the work done to the car in my possession has been done by me and my father (a certified GM mechanic). The car has 97,xxx miles on it and going up every day it's driven. I travel approx no more than 100 miles a week. The gas gauge doesn't work, it's not the cluster so it's probably the fuel sending unit, don't have the time to look at it. Can't find a cluster with around the same mileage, so I just use the trip function on the cluster. I usually go 280-ish miles before re-filling. I get about 23 MPG around town, to and from work. Should get 28-ish on the highway.
Any questions, PM or txt me 334-707-1(5)(6)5
What I did to it:
~ Front Control Arm Bushings (Prothane)
~ Front wheel bearings.
~ New Battery.
~ Oil Filter (Hengst) and oil change about 1,000 miles ago.
~ New MAF.
~ Both front window regs.
~ New tires 900-ish miles ago.
~ Brand new Mishimoto RED Performance coolant hoses w/ lifetime warranty.
- Jetta front end.
~ MUCH MUCH MORE!!
What the PO did to it:
~ Stupidazz white hood (recently rattlecanned black).
~ Neuspeed Stainless steel catback. (Hollowed cat).
~ Neuspeed P-Chip (runs on 93 octane).
~ K&N CAI.
~ Alpine 9885 HU w/ ipod hookup and AUX, also ability for sirius..
~ Freedom designs Midwing.
~ Aftermarket Viper Immobilizer car alarm. (Sometimes a bitch to work with). Stock keyless works as well (I use the banjo on it)...
~ KYB struts with eibach ground control coils, could use new struts. (Shakes at 57-ish stops around 62).
Now for the pictures:
The dents in the pass side fender I mentioned, you can't even see it in the previous picture...
There is also a minor dent in the hatch under the midwing that could be pushed back out easily without the removal of paint.
Enjoy the rest of the pics.
You can't really see it here but the roof is faded and has MINOR surface rust about 4 spots less than penny size.
The left rear speaker holder came un-glued one day, I plan on hot gluing it back in when I get time but it doesn't really bother me and still sounds fine.
I bought material to do the headliner and Black fabric and vinyl spray to re-do the whole interior but I never get any spare time.
Needs rear parcel shelf (no clue why mine is bent, it came that way). Also when I replaced the vaccum lines I had to get to the box which is behind the side carpeting to the right, that's why it's not on properly.
OEM Spare and Tools.
And lastly a walk around and start up video filmed from my phone, lol.
Thanks for looking at my thread everyone, if you look at it and say huh, that's a ridiculous price please lemme know... I don't know what it's worth but I'm more interested in a trade because I still need a car to get to work...
