      This is a 1997 DE GLX Jetta

      186k miles, clean title, paint looks good, very minor details to be noticed other than the trunk lid needing paint. Runs perfect, great power, good on gas, no oil leaks. All maintenance up to date. 6000 OBO.

      Pics



      Exterior:
      -Boser hood, all metal.
      -Inpro bi-xenon projector headlights (8k hi and lows).
      -GTi painted badgeless/shaved grill.
      -Euro Bumper (real, not replica).
      -Duckbill lip.
      -Smoked HELLA fogs, turns, and Dummys (3k hella fogs).
      -M3 textured skirts.
      -Shaved trunk.
      -Euro plate tub.
      -M3 clear tails.

      Performance:
      -12v Vr6 Motor. Starts right up every time, no stutters, runs great and gets about 26mpg with normal driving.
      -TT stage 1 or 2 chip(have stock chip too).
      -Autotech CAI.
      -Ported polished manifold, with polished runners.
      -Magnaflow catback, with dual polished tips. (Sounds nice)
      -MSD ignition system.
      -high performance spark plug wires.
      -deleted charcoal canister.
      -Metal Rad fan cover.
      -New Tensioner pulley, with metal pulley and new belt.

      Suspension/wheels:
      -Eurosport coilovers (only about half way in pictures)
      -Autotech 25mm Front Sway Bar
      -Autotech 28mm Rear Sway Bar
      -Autotech origional rare strut bar
      -ESM 002 16x7.5 and 16x9 RS's, polished lugs
      -Toyo 205/40/16's (New, less than 10k miles)

      Edit:
      - New wheel bearings, control arm bushings and tie rod ends installed. (Steering feels nice and tight, no play in the steering wheel)
      - 4-wheel alignment done (caster, camber toe reset)
      - Rear sway bar installed.


      I got the car from another vortexer and now am looking to give it back to the community and get something a little more 'adult', so to speak. I have a daughter now and need something not so noisy and more comfortable for car seats, etc...

      The car is garage kept and I have restored the paint pretty well from where I got it. The trunk lid needs to be painted, but the rest of the original paint looks pretty good and it gets complimented out on the road constantly. The interior is mint, no cracks in the dash, and the seats are perfect in every way. They're still new! I always drive alone, so the driver's seat is the only one that gets any use.

      I will note that the A/C is not blowing cold, but it might just need a charge? Not sure. Other than that, I there is nothing to mention, it's unbelievable how nice this car runs for the miles and age. I have taken the car to German Car Depot in Hollywood, FL. for all its maintenance. http://www.germancardepot.com

      I think you'll agree that it's hard to find an MKIII GLX in this condition and running this well.

      Final note: I am easy to work with and would be accommodating to anyone interested in the car. I want it to go to someone that will continue taking care of a great car. Long live MKIIIs! That said, please don't be a jerk or rude or try to scam or low-ball me, I am happy to work with guys that are serious and would love to own a kick-ass Dub.

      Thanks for looking and check out this link for a small album of pics.

      Oh yeah, the Avant would be perfect, but I don't have 16k to offer you.

      It may turn out that I have to sit on this car for a bit and have more cash to couple with it and be able to pull off a trade like that. I appreciate it, though.
