      Just curious why you raised the price from $2800 to $3000? Did you buy a new throttle body and cable for it? Pretty clean car but with a busted heater core, and no a/c I think $3000 might be stretching it. Heater core changes in mk2's are not cheep if a shop does it and a big pita if you have to do it your self. I like the keskins on that car though. Who built the engine? Is it chipped to help handle the mods? Does it pass CA smog (I lived there and I hated CA smog)? Did you upgrade the injectors?

      i feel its $3000 i lowered it a lil to move it but if i dont get it i dont mind keeping. i have all the receipts from the po regarding the motor work. it passed smog 2 yrs ago and ill get it smogged in a few days and if it doesnt pass ill fix whatever it needs.

      cheers

      Wow people sometimes. This car is well worth what your asking . Finding clean mk2's are getting harder to find. Bump this back up

    22. 09-23-2012 08:40 AM #22
      I would buy this if i was looking for another mk2. Its perfect
