      Any more interior pics? Maybe of the wear on the seat? My HHR might be totaled and if so, I will need a new car quick for what I can get from the insurance company and this might work perfect.

      I'll take a bunch tomorrow morning, if that works.

      I assume it is somewhere in the DC area since it went to Radley?

      Do you know if it is a Package 1, 2, or 3 car? I assume 2?

      Also, has the timing belt been done? Or does it have a chain?

      1. Yes, it's near DC in NoVA. I typically had it serviced at Lindsay VW in Dulles, but Karen did the OEM clutch assembly.

      2. Package 1, as far as I know (though it might be a Package 2)

      3. The 5-cylinder makes use of a timing chain.

      Going to CarMax tomorrow. If you're still interested, it'll probably be for sale there...
