$22k as is with all mods
Hi Everyone. Never thought I'll be posting this, but just getting a feel if anyone out there is interested in buying this car or willing to trade for a M3 46, M5 39, Evo, STI. I'm just itching to try something else and those are the only cars on my mind. The car is reliable, I wouldn't mind driving across country with it if I had to. No engine problems. Long story short, I thought I was going to keep this car, maintaining and making sure the car runs great till 175-200k+ Miles. Car has never been in an accident, clean record and I have the title in hand, fully paid for. Every 5k miles, used Synthetic Oil + new oil filter. Below are recent changes just made
New Diverter Valve Revision D ($120) Original C blown due to new K04 kit
New Coilpacks installed when installing K04 Kit
Motul Synthetic Oil Change 1.5k miles ago when installing K04 kit
New NGK Spark Plugs 5k miles ago
Changed to new Stoptech Street Brake pads all 4 wheels
New Slotted Rotors all 4 wheels (PowerSlot Rotors)
New Stainless Steel Brake lines.
Okay, I'm going to write as detailed as I can about my car. Hopefully I don't miss anything.
I bought this car brand new at my local dealer, showroom car. Fell in love with it, the color is rare and never seen it. Test drove it and loved it better than my Infiniti G35 Sedan 6MT. It was under powered, but something about German engineering and just the feel of everything seemed more solid to the touch. The G35 had brutal power, but the GLI had a personality/soul. Thought i'll never mod it and keep it stock. Unfortunately, I discovered Vortex and that's when all these great ideas and modding came along.
I have mostly all the stock parts so I can easily switch if price range is not within your budget.

I think that's about it. No car/electrical/engine problems. The car runs great. I invested over about $14 grand in mods and drove this car as if I was going to drive it to the ground after 200k+ miles and move onto a new car.
I will not be parting out any parts unless serious buyer does not want the modded part, I will sell individual parts after the sale of the car.
I would like $20k for the car, but I understand if some people don't like some of the mods, I can switch it and put it back to stock to save you money. Of course the above prices are the prices I paid installed. If you would like to go stock, deduct 50% of the amount listed. For example, the OEM LED Tail lights changed to stock, you would deduct $100 from the $22k price so the car would be @ $21,900 sale.
Any questions, please let me know. More Pictures can be found in below album

Thanks for the PMs and questions on seeing if I would part the APR K04 Kit
If I was to go back to stock, I would sell this the car for $14k only because of the new brake rotors and pads that were installed less than 300 miles ago. ($1k parts + labor)
Any other questions, let me know. Thank you!
Thanks Vdub for your comment. I hear ya. I know that's the case with majority of dealers which is why i'm not going that route. However, I was hoping that on Vortex, there are many fellow Vdubbers that can appreciate the mods installed and know it's true value. And if they were going to upgrade in the near future, might as well have it already installed on a car they would like with the mods at a fraction of the cost than purchasing new and installed separately on their own.
I am more than happy to return to stock if anyone is seriously interested or just want a few things which I can give at a great discount. Just let me know your budget and what you would like. I'm sure we can work something out
