      Posting this for a friend. He is trying to sell a MKV (07) GLI. He said the dealership told him that it "needs a new engine." I'm trying to get a hold of him to figure out why exactly it needs an engine. So, with it being a MKV in need of an engine, he would be happy to get $4500 for it. It's tornado red, manual tranny, and in really good shape. 100% stock. Let me know if anyone is interested, or if you know of someone who might be.

      How many miles were on it when he was told it needed a new engine?

      Hey sorry about the no replies. I'm currently trying to get info as far as mileage and exact engine problems from my friend. I should have an update pretty soon.

      Sorry about the delays. My friend keeps going back and forth on whether he wants to sell the car or rebuild the engine. I think he has finally decided to sell it. It has 76xxx miles on it, completely stock. He was told by a dealer that it had a failed rocker arm, and metal bits throughout the engine. I personally have not seen the car since he had these issues, so I can't verify exactly what's wrong with it. By the sound of things, I'm guessing it will need a new engine. Otherwise, the car is in great shape, with only a few minor nicks on the body. Clean interior. He is trying to get $4500 for it.
