      ***THIS CAR HAS BEEN SOLD***


      It's finally time to sell the helios. I've loved this car, but I need to move on! It's been my daily driver for 7 years and has never left me stranded.

      It still runs like a dream, and starts up everytime.

      Car is located in Walnut Creek, CA

      The Good:

      95,xxxish (the cluster stopped working two months ago) on the motor and tranny. The previous owner owned a Porsche shop and rebuilt the motor and bought a brand new tranny. I have receipts of everything he did. He did a little work on porting the head as well.
      Neuspeed triangle rear upper strut bar
      Shine lower rear sway bar
      Neupeed front upper strut bar
      Neuspeed front lower sway bar
      Intrax front and Neuspeed rear springs, lowered 1.5 in the front and 2 in the back.
      Neuspeed Short Shift
      MK3 Weighted Shift Rod
      Helios fabric shift boot (awesome)
      Rear FOHA spoiler
      Passat slim fans
      Mobil Synthetic oil only
      VividWonders Ground Wire Kit.
      Pioneer CD player with 6 speakers and a Bazooka bass tube
      Trailer Hitch
      Redone black suede headliner, it doesn't hang down! Black a,b, and c pillars
      It just passed Smog with flying colors!
      There is a lot of tread left on the tires.

      The Not As Good:

      The cluster stopped working two months ago. I was going to open it up and see what was wrong, but haven't had a chance
      The freon ran out. There are no major leaks, it just needs to be recharged. It was converted to r-134
      The car won't come with the roof rack.
      Small dent in passenger side door, will come out.
      Needs new shocks.

      I just replaced:

      Distributor
      Cap and rotor
      Bosch Plugs and bosch plug wires
      Battery
      Front axles
      Differential Pressure Regulator
      Fuel pump
      Fuel Filter (In tank and exterior)
      Power Steering Pump
      Thermostat
      Catalytic Converter


      The body has roughly 215,xxx. The PO turned the cluster back to match the rebuilt engine. So, the cluster reads 91,xxx.
      This car has been serviced by Tomas Sport Tuning.

      $1,800 OBO
