      Yes it is 8 years old but it has the miles of a 3 year old car. When I bought it I had no issue paying the cost to ship it across the county, because I wanted the car. I appreciate your advice but it really just sounds like you don't like my car or the price. You suggest I take it back to stock? It would cost me a ton of money to do that, makes no sense. If you look there are cars with double the miles that mine has and they are asking close to 20k. Its a tough economy so I'm not expecting it to sell overnight but I'm sure that the right buyer who appreciates what I am offering will pay what I'm asking or close to it.

      You asked what it's going to take to sell it. So i told you. As i was in the market for R32's i told you what i'm looking for and i think most are looking for the same thing -

      -unmodded/stock
      -low miles
      -fair price or a market value price

      It has nothing to do with liking your car or not - I'm going on what I've seen in shopping the market for almost a year--

      R32Slutt put his car up, lower miles than your's, pristine, stock, he wanted 25,000 for it. he claims he got offered 24k but is keeping it b/c he loves it. i think he swallowed his pride and realized nobody's going to pay that much for an 8 year old car. i was willing to give him $21,000 and he didn't take it.

      This guy got $21,000 for his car, 21,000 miles:
      http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...-Miles-(Cle-OH)

      At the end of the day, market value is what someone is willing to pay for it. Nobody's been willing to pay $25,000 nobody's willing to pay $23,500, so at this point your price seems to be your main problem.

      As far as taking it back to stock yeah, it would cost money, but most guys who buy these cars, keep all of the stock parts for resale. I understand you bought it modified. Fair enough, but the market for modified cars is much smaller than stock cars. People want the car stock so they can put their own vision into the car; not to mention people worry about a modified car having been abused unless they know the owner. It's not uncommon for kids to beat a car and then dump it. I ended up being the buyer of an abused GTI, which was amazingly pristine on the outside, only to find out the kid traded it in b/c VW was denying him warranty coverage for abuse on the clutch and transmission. I was lucky b/c I forced the dealer to take the car back.

      All I'm saying is, I've seen stock R32s, as clean as your's sell much quicker, with a reasonable price. If the car looked like the previous owner had it, that might also have helped.

      You're competing with GOLF R and MK V R32 buyers, i know b/c I am one of those buyers.

      You'll either end up keeping it or dropping your price to a market value. Imagine what a dealership would give you for it on a trade in. They'd probably throw 17k at you at most and try and sell it for 20k.

      I kept all the stock parts for the sole reason of selling the car stock, because I knew most people would want it that way.

      The only things on the car when I sold it were the APR chip and the SWG mirror.

      It is a great car, but I do think the prices have come down on these cars slightly. Personally, I think the $20k range is more than fair.

      Jon I am starting to agree, I guess you have to shake the bush to see what falls out first. I would definitely take offers in the 20-21k zone. I just hate seeing it sit there and want to be driven. Sadly I have come to enjoy driving my Subaru Outback, this is what it feels like to get old!

      I do have the original shifter linkage and the original radio, those are the only two things that I have changed and not simply added. The panzer plate, Unibrace and tint can all be taken out, I just put new tires on it too, like I have driven about 100 miles on them new.

      I hope you do get good money for it. It's certainly worth it.

      I'll give it the best home it could possibly have right here in classy San Diego. It's begging to be driven and I'm begging to be behind the wheel. Let's make this happen

      If you still have this car in the summer of 2013 I'll be more than happy to buy it cash. I just have to wait to receive my signing bonus/sell my gli when I get back from basic training.
