      up for sale or trade is my '89 Jetta Gli 16v wolfsburg limited edition also known as a "helios" edition or what lots of people call it in the vw community.

      mileage 211,000
      Engine bay/drivetrain:
      bone stock 1.8l 16v Dohc w/9a transmission
      bbm solid style front mount
      head gasket recently done @ 206k miles
      new spark plugs & plug wires replaced @ that time
      coolant system flush w/ the pink vw dealership stuff not the green crap.
      compression test done and all 4 cylinders are at 200
      replaced the oil cooler, radiator, alternator, control arm bushings, optima blue top battery
      deleted heater core, deleted power steering, a/c removed
      TT exhuast w/superflow? muffler

      suspension:
      rokkor coilovers

      interior:
      factory Recaro blue striped seats
      factory interior w/ manual windows

      exterior:
      smoked Aero e-codes
      gli 16v grille badge
      brand new 165/45 r15's
      Foha rear foam wing
      Hella heckblende
      Hella oem tailights made in germany not mexico

      the car runs and drives great.

      the bad.
      heater core is bypassed
      needs both axles replaced as they click when you turn and hit the gas hard

      i am just looking for something dirrerent. i have had this car for a couple years now and have done alot to it but mostly i have spent alot of time cleaning it and bringing the oem paint back from the dead.

      i am really wanting a passat wagon or a mk4 jetta wagon since me and my fiance have a baby on the way. BUT i will entertain all offers. wether it be a vw or not.
      worst i can say is no.
      no test drives unless you have cash in hand. or have a car i want.

      i would like something with more power as well. the 4 cylinder just isnt much for me.

      i am asking $5,000 obo or trade or trade + cash

      text me with offers 503 820 9106

      the MK4 will have less room in the back than this does. A B5.5 would be minimum after year 1 in my opinion. The 2000 A6 I just picked up is perfect.

      Bump for a really clean Helios! Don't let the miles fool you, it's all about upkeep...

      hopefully someone will buy your helios and keep kit alive! but if you decide to part it out I would be interested in the dash carpet the mud flaps and the passenger fender, which I am in need of immediately. Please let me know, cheers
