    Thread: 1981 Scirocco S 2.0 16V Northern Minnesota $3300

      We're moving to Alaska, and the Sciroccos must go.

      2.0 16V approximately 95,000 miles
      Regular FF transmission with 90mm half-shafts.
      Techtonics short shift kit
      16V Scirocco exhaust manifold, Techtonics cat and down-pipe
      2.25" Techtonics exhaust with SuperSprint group N muffler

      280mm (11") front brakes with Zimmerman cross drilled rotors
      Audi 5000 turbo calipers with Ferodo pads
      DOT stainless steel lines
      92 GLI 16V rear brakes
      16V brake servo and master cylinder

      Polyurethane bushings
      Neuspeed sway bars (22/28)
      Neuspeed lower stress bar
      Bilstein Sport spings
      Bonrath spring perches
      OE strut bearings
      poly rear upper strut bearings

      16x7 BBS RX wheels on Yokohama 205/40ZR16 A520 tires

      92 GLI front seats
      Oil pressure, clock, voltmeter, oil temperature (not functioning)
      Leather shift boot
      Momo Race Air leather knob
      Leather hand brake boot
      billet hand brake lever
      New carpet

      H1/H4 lights fully relayed.

      I've owned this car for 10 years, and it has been very reliable. The ride is really rough for the roads around here, but the handling makes up for it.

      Paint is original. A lot of dings and dents throughout, but aside from a small rust spot on the rear hatch (see photo), it is a rust free car. One body issue is that the right rear was dented slightly (a couple of mm?) which results in water getting into the wheel well behind the rear tire. I sponge it out every time I was the car and don't drive it in the rain, but it should be attended to if you are not into doing that.

      Dash is cracked, but I have a good one that I will be selling (parts list coming).

      The engine does not put out as much power as I would expect it to. I would estimate that it is only making about 105 HP. It could be simple (or not), but I've never put the time into tracking it down. I bought the car like this and have not had it get better or worse.

      Side window rubber and wipers are weathered.

      Asking $3300. Must sell by the end of August.

      This is where the car was dented, causing a water leak through the taillight to body gasket.

      The only rust spot that I can find on the car:

      Paint is weathered and checked:

      Not on this car. I purchased with the swap. I've done one, and this swap is decent (I would rate it 8.5/10; my swap was a 10/10 of course) The engine is a 9A 16V with California emissions, It does not have A/C or power steering. It starts well, and runs well, but I would expect it to run well under 7 seconds to 60 mph. I clock something in the mid 8 second range.

      I'm more MKII fan, this is a nice MKI that definitely catches my eye. Need more cash myself, hope it finds a good home.

      I know I'm selling it way too cheap. If I had three months to sell it rather than three weeks, I'd be asking for more.

      Any chance you're driving through Alberta on your way to Alaska?

      Smokin' deal - if only I had half the money I'd be on this like white on rice. You're only a week out, man. What happens if no one steps up? You have anyone semi-local you can leave it with and take your time selling?

      The car and all the sheet metal in my post for parts (6 doors, 3 hatches, 2 hoods, one of the windshields) are now all in Detroit residing in the garage of a relative. 900 miles closer to civilization and much easier to shipping logistics.

      That's good news, I was afraid that you were going to have to do something rash.
