    Thread: FS/FT: 89 GTI, ABA Swap, 5 spd, 227k on body, all new front suspension & steering, Central PA

      For sale/for trade is my '89 GTI with full ABA swap and AGB 16v close-ratio transmission. I decided I have to much going on in life to justify finishing this project (new job + kid). The car has been incredibly reliable for me over the past year i have owned it. It also has always had plenty of power (more than i expected) and runs great. I bought this car for better fuel mileage and to fix it up and autocross it but the work load of finishing college and now life has proven to be too much. It breaks my heart to let all my hard work go but it must be done. Car has been extremely reliable and starts right up every time. I put about 3-4,000 miles on it this past year.

      New Parts:
      G60 Strut tops & transmission mount
      R32 Control arm bushings
      All front suspension/swaybar bushings
      Ball joints
      Tie-rod ends
      Spark plugs & wires
      Bosch cap & rotor
      Driver side rear spindle and wheel bearing
      Front motor mount
      Recharged K&N air filter
      Tires (have 2000 miles on them)
      Used but leak free power steering rack
      Used but like new BSI Racing Coilovers
      Used Koni yellow double adjustable strut inserts (front only)
      Badgeless grille (not installed)

      The good:
      Inspected til May 2013
      OBD1 ABA 2.0L mostly stock but feels quick for stock
      AGB close-ratio 16v transmission
      Rear disc brakes
      Vented front rotors w/ mk3 caliers
      Front & Rear strut tower braces
      MK3 radiator and fan conversion
      K&N cone filter and PCV valve mod
      Custom full high-flow exhaust (louder than stock but relatively quiet)
      4 New tires on the 14" MK2 12-hole steelies
      Big Bumpers
      Short shifter
      MK3 center console (now has cup holders)
      Recaro front seats (not self-reclining yet)
      Plaid headliner & door cards
      Aftermarket steering wheel (Unkown brand but in like new condition)
      All the locks match the key
      Aftermarket headunit (works but needs speakers)

      The Bad:
      PO attempted his own paint job and failed miserably
      Green car with gold driver side fender
      Dash has cracks but is a pocket dash
      Missing driver door trim
      Car will need a clutch if your going to drive it hard but doesn't slip under normal conditions
      Transmission appears to leak but fluid level has not went down much since i've owned it.

      Open to trades, but will sell outright. Asking $2500 but negotiable. Located near Harrisburg, PA.
