Lately, I've had the nagging feeling I want to get back into a Porsche. There just isn't quite room enough for 8 cars so one is going to have to go.
I've had this since new. To say this car is babied is an understatement. Anyone who knows me knows that I'm incredibly "particular" about my cars. It's a 2006 so it's got the early accessories/features... blue glass (love this!), headlight washers, etc.. All options except DSG (leather, nav, xm, Huffs, Climatronic, Cargo gear w/ rear mat). I've added quite a few euro parts & accessories... Bilstein/H&R, 19" BBS CH's (both wheels and suspension installed at 10k miles), mudflaps, clear bra, projector fogs, blacked out mirror housings, under-seat drawers (both sides), aluminum ashtray cover, euro cup holder, monster mats (never used), euro spoiler, rear fog, euro headlight switch, lower poly insert, open grilles, painted side markers (still have originals), OEM iPod dock insert (in armrest), CD changer (currently removed for iPod dock insert)... I'm sure I'm leaving out a few things. Factory suspension is included in sale.
No one has ever sat in the rear seats and there has only been one person in the passenger seat (my wife) and that was maybe 10 times at the most (including my wedding). This car has never been chipped (really, I'm 41 years old, my fast driving days are over), needless to say "abused" or driven hard (well, there was that one time I romped on it to scare the wife). It's got 26k miles on it and doesn't see rain. All maintenance, and campaigns done by my local VW dealer (Armstrong). Tires are at about 50%. Huff's come with it, albeit without tires (took them off a few weeks ago for the new wheels on my JSW, no sense in letting them rot). I don't really want to sell it and reserve the right to remove this listing should I come to my senses or should my wife threaten to kill/leave me.
It really is a fun, clean little car. I'd like to see $19k for it but I'm negotiable. Please, don't insult me or embarrass yourself by lowballing. I don't have it on any other board but that will change next week depending on how committed I find myself to selling it.

Cars at this price point don't usually attract the demographic that maintains and respects them for what they're worth. Most folks forget these are $40-60k cars in the homeland overseas.
That being said, you've clearly done a top-shelf job and preserving this MkV! You're an experienced car owner and it shows. Free bump and two thumbs up.
Hope to find one this pristine in 2 years when I'm out of school and out of debt.
I miss my turbo VW of yesteryear...
