      11k

      Time for it to go.
      Ok. Need this gone or I'm trading it in as is


      Currently 91,200 miles
      Current mods left and on the car:

      Vmaxx coilovers (installed last week)
      Mkv R32 leather seats- heated
      BFI stabila rear sway
      TT catback
      Euro jetta dash trim, with woodgrain change tray
      Gti shift knob
      CC R line steering wheel non dsg
      New "Golf" monster mats
      Unitronic tuned ecu is back in
      Eurojet valve cover and catch can
      New slotted brake setup. Rears installed, fronts are boxed up with new pads
      Relocated battery
      Joey modded head lights
      Gti armrest
      R32 leather e-brake handle
      Custom 3" intake
      Everything I could tuck or hide without being invasive has been done. I can undo it all if buyer wishes.

      Also included:
      Oem silver headlights
      Stock rear sway bar
      Oem rear suspension
      15" mk6 Golf hubcaps
      Perches for the rear coils
      Spanner wrenches
      Oem 2.5l airbox/engine cover with intake pipes
      Rabbit monster mats (for winter use)

      Car will come on new 15" steelies with all seasons. They're dealer take-offs.

      I know its not a bone stock Gti with bags and RS's, but buy the wheels for 1,400$ extra and you're just air ride away. That said 9.5k this is my lowest. Carmax offered me 8.5k for it with engine mods. Told me I'd get more if I put the bay back to stock, the leather interior adds a lot I guess. And that was with no first gear.














      The car now has R32 leather seats, 17" OZ Mitos 3 piece with newer tires, and will come with steelies and hubcaps with tires on them as well.

      Pm me for full mod list, and details about the wheels, which are currently up for sale or trade.

      I'm asking 11k the way it sits with all mods, all stock parts I have, anything aftermarket not installed can be bought extra, or I'll just sell them.

      Well its official, need it gone. Broke my right hand and need surgery. I cannot use my hand for 4 months, and will need physical therapy after.

      $13,000 with a new trans or $12,000 with the 5 speed installed that will not go into first gear due to a mushroomed gear. All other gears work, and this car makes enough tq first gear is pointless. Also have a FST stage 3 flywheel and clutch, DSS axles and a 6speed trans available if sale on it falls through.

      I will trade for a DSG GTI, GLI, TDI, JSW, EOS, NEW BEETLE.

      If it doesn't go soon I'm putting back to stock and selling to Carmax

      where in Ohio are you located, and what would your rough estimate be to get the trans back to 100%?

      In Cleveland, and roughly 800$ for a used trans.

      If you just drive the car without launching it the trans will hold for awhile. It's been two years, we drained the fluid looking for metal shards, nothing came out with the fluid, or magnet, so we put GM Synchromesh fluid in it, and it has been problem free since. I have no idea what happened. I sent my girlfriend to the store, she called me outside saying it wouldn't go into first. I got in got the car going and first engaged, but when I went to third, first never engaged again.

      never having had to replace a trans in any of my cars before; why not just the broken parts instead of the whole thing?

      You can do that. You'll have to buy the ring and open the trans and replace it. There's a guy selling a trans in the classifieds cheap.

      Back up.

      Since I made this thread I added a MFD2, and a full air ride setup. I'm asking 11k as the car sits, but I will negotiate. I still have the coilovers for it so I can put those back on and I will drop the price to 9,000$. I have a new transmission I'll include for $300 so the first gear issue would be taken care of.

      Bump.

      I'll share some info. I was quoted $8.5k for a trade in as is with bags and all mods. I'm asking 11k for it which I think is reasonable. So we have room to make a deal, between $8,500 and $11,000.

      I'll gladly sell it for 8,500 but I'm keeping the air and MFD2 for my other mkv
