      Sold But to a good home

      I can't believe i'm thinking of letting her go, but i think it's just time for a change. Some background information on the car, I bought this car in February 2011 from a good friend of mine who had owned the cars the 5 years prior. Have a clean carfax! I am the 4th owner and the furthest north this car has ever been is nashville. Onto some information on the car (i'm sure i will be forgetting a lot of things).

      Note: car was originally a 1.8 8v digifant car.

      Body:
      -189k on the chasis.
      -Original T-red paint, in decent shape, roof shows some signs of primer starting to peek through. But shines up great!
      -couple of dings but nothing major
      -Absolutey NO RUST.
      -All Original body panels.
      -All Original Flares, bumpers, etc... Even the original Grill! Rear bumper has some oxidation.
      -Factory quad round set-up with factory fog lights.
      -Rare Hella heckspoiler.
      -Thule roof rack; with locks, fairing, and 2 bike attachments.
      -Clear/amber front markers.
      -Half smoked tail lights.
      -Rear wiper mod to adjust the "rest" position to horizontal.
      -Mini cooper s antenna

      Motor:
      -120k plus. 2.0 aba OBD2. Runs great and pulls hard. Just averaged 36 mpg on our trip to sowo. Motor came out of Jeff Bynum's Wife's cabrio. Does not burn oil.
      -Oil changes every 3000 miles.
      -Wiring harness was done by Jeff and retains the factory dash harness and has flawlessly functioning MFA.
      -Eurosport cat-back exhaust. Polished out the exhaust tip.
      -Functioning OBD2 port.

      Interior:
      -Recaro seats, in mint condition with no rips/tears/wear on the bolsters.
      -corrado steering wheel
      -mk4 shift knob.
      -one crack starting to creep its way up the dash.
      -No sagging headliner
      -Perfectly working crank sunroof which does NOT leak.
      -Cd stereo with aux port. one 10 inch kicker sub in the trunk.
      -Perfect door cards etc.

      Suspension/wheels/brakes:

      -Solo-werks Coilover setup with 8k miles on it. Rides amazing.
      -Neuspeed front sway bar.
      -New steering rack, with new tie rod ends.
      -Corrado 11.1 inch drilled front brakes. Disc brakes in the rear.
      -ET 25 15x8 Schmidt modernlines. With New Toyo Proxes t1r. (195/45/15 1000 miles). Have a spare as well.
      -New brake master cylinder last year

      Again i'm sure there is a lot i am forgetting, If anyone has any questions feel free to ask.
      Asking price is $6000.
      Car is located in Huntsville, AL.

      Strictly tire kicking but I have a few questions that I didn't see addressed:

      Working A/C?
      Which transmission?
      What rear seats are in it (OEM 8V or the matching Recaro versions)?

      Thanks,
      -Brett.

      Hey Brett, no problem.

      A/c is currently inop. however, all of the components are there. Nothing was striped.
      Transmission that comes on the aba motor. can't remember the code. (3500ish at 75mph) if that helps any.
      Matching recaro rear seats in mint condition. (will get pictures tomorrow)

      Thanks, Ben

      I was kind of in a rush considering i just bought another car; however, if it takes longer then expected for it to go to the right person i'm completely fine with that.

      Ok, cool. I was mainly gonna be looking for an 05 GLi 6spd, but I'm very specific and likely will take me a long time to find exactly what I want, if at all. But I'm definitely unopposed to a clean Mk2 GTi or GLi, and I'm not too far from you. The bad part is that I'm moving soon and my money will be tied for quite a bit. And it seems like B4 Passat VRs aren't really selling well right now, which was gonna be half of the money I needed lol. Hopefully this is still around when the time is right.
