i'm no wheel expert, but i don't think they are RSes. they look more like the bbs wheels that bmw put on 5 series cars with "M sport" upgrades. if that's the case, they aren't worth a whole heck of a lot. those other mods aren't the kinds of things that do much for resale.
i would LOVE to have a 6 speed 4 door candy white gti. if i found one with a real deal warranty for anything close to what i paid for my new passat, i would have done it. that car has a million red flags higher up on the list, but i'm going to go ahead and expose my prejudice: i would NEVER buy a car that had been bagged. i don't know if the science bears me out, but there, i said it.
the father should relist the car presented at a reasonable ride height without stickers and goofy hatch speakers and say that it's his ride that he spared no expense and babied. what's his target demo? icy hot stunnaz? 100% this kid wastes his tuition money and is driving a mkiii to his new fast food gig by next february. stupid, stupid dad. probably buys his hoez implants and talks about how much they cost, too.
I made a thread just for this, overpriced cars. Woulda fit right on in there
So his parents bought him a car and spend their money on upgrades so what? Maybe he deserves it, who cares... stop judging!
"As anyone who has ever tinkered with an old BMW engine or looked out on to the wing of a jet can attest, pure response to engineering requirements can sometimes deliver just as much pleasure as a more intentionally aesthetic design process."
