      Bought the car used in 2009 with 111k now has 130k on it. I've had a bunch of things go wrong with the car since I've had it....when it was still under warranty I had to bring to to my local Volkswagen dealership to get the tranny worked on. ( it was going into 3rd gear hard and then back into 2nd gear rough) which was fix by the dealer. It also needed a timing chain replacement, but when I found out that I was in the middle of planning a wedding so to make a long story short it sat for about 3-4 months. Within the past 2 weeks I've had that replaced by a well known garage on vwvortex (nothing leaves stock). Needless to say the timing chain and timing of the car is great, with that said the major things on the car are fixed. While leaving the shop at "NLS" the owner said that I'm need an exhaust, new front rotors and brakes, and a dog bone insert could be helpful cuz it was weak. So I'm in the process of getting those 3 final items to make the car somewhat complete. I ordered the dog bone insert and since I just got my car back yesterday I haven't had time to get the brakes and exhaust yet, but I've been working on it.
      Now for a couple minor things it may need...
      Front door wiring harness (drivers side)
      Weather stripping for both front doors ( does not leak at all but just looks like crap)
      I hit a deer also which was fixed by the dealer and everything is fine with that but when they fixed it they replaced the drivers side head light, so there is a brand new head light and the other head light which has been on the car since the beginning.
      I have 35% tint on all windows besides the back window so u can either rip it off the windows or just get the back tinted.

      I had the oil changed every 3000 miles...
      Also "NLS" has just done the following due to it sitting for a few months:
      Timing chain, guides, tensioners, coolant flush and all gaskets and sealers.
      Brand new battery
      Replaced a headlight bulb
      Replaced spark plugs
      Changed oil and filter, lube chassis
      - I have receipts for everything.
      Tires on car are in above average shape.
      I also have a set of sports tuning wheels with next to new tires on them. Only about 1000 miles on the tires.
      Looking for offers....
