      OK, so it looks like I will be moving back to the good old US of A in the next year, (long story) so I'll be needing to sell the up!.

      We ordered it back in December, 10 days after it went on the market... waited 5 months, and took delivery back in April.

      It has just over 2,000km on it, so it's just barely broken in. It sees about 45-50MPG on average. That's +/- 500km from it's tiny, 9 gallon (!!) tank. It currently only takes about $30 to fill this car up. (Approved by VW to run Super E10)

      Full Coverage through USAA only runs me about $100/mo.

      This car has extremely low operating costs!!!!

      Options:
      *Special Edition "white up!" package, with exclusive paint color (pure white), chrome trim, body colored "classic" wheels, and exclusive interior "stripes"
      *75 PS engine option (standard is 60 PS)
      *5-Speed Manual Transmission
      *Power Windows
      *Power Locks
      *Power Mirrors
      *Remote Keyless Entry
      *6-speaker Premium Sound package (standard is 2)
      *"Maps & More" Infotainment/Navigation package
      *Air Conditioning
      *Smoker's Package (after we ordered the car, we decided NOT to smoke in it, so the car has NEVER been smoked in.)

      *Originally bought for $17,600
      *Currently owe $16,900
      (car was purchased on the German economy, so was priced in Euros)

      Not looking to make any money off this, just need to get it out of my name. This is around the current MSRP for a new, bare-bones Jetta....





      Wow, after all that typing, I just realized that I don't have any pictures of the car.

      I'm on leave in the States right now, so I'll upload some more pics when I get home later this week.

      Here are some pics pulled from the internet, of the exact model I have.

      Thanks, but I think we both know that the American market in Germany isn't the best place to try and sell a car like this. Most Americans could care less about gas mileage...

      I also bought this car because I wanted a new Volkswagen, and was sick of seeing GTIs and Jettas... I guess this is the price I pay for being different.

      I'm sure the selling price doesn't help much, either.... considering that we just bought this car.... But some family things have come up stateside, and I have to get home.... But since this is a Euro-spec car...and has a Lien on it, I'm stuck here until it sells...
