      im located in slinger wi.
      it is in the air at the moment as im doing the control arms and front bearings. when its all said and done i will not take less than 1500. i plan doing a custom exhaust. and a clutch before winter.

      has a CEL on due to camshaft position sensor....


      if you want to trailer it i will take no less than 1300. but im ordering shifter bushing kit and putting that in this coming week. if you are interested in trailering it now send me a PM.

      Pretty interested. Live in Michigan so this is kind of far away but seems to be worth it. Couple questions. Timing done recently? Have you done the clutch yet? My 94 2.0 just went through the clutch and I do not want to attempt to replace it myself and rely on it as a dd and it cost too much at a mechanic compared to the cars worth. Maybe you can do mine too and I'll have two 2.0s!! Please text me ASAP as I need a car soon. 269-861-49eightzero

      I bought my last car from a VW mechanic and had nothing but success for 3 years. So I'm leaning towards this.

      Hate to break it to you, but thats worth maybe $1300 at best. Just because you did routine maintenance on the bearings, tie rods etc does not raise the value. If you want $1300 HMU
