      Well, I'm finding out more and more as the weeks go by that I don't have the time to do the things I need to do to get my GLI running the way I want it to. I'm thinking now it might be best to sell, cut my losses and just get a daily. This was supposed to be a daily that I was going to build up, but 40 hour work weeks + 15 hours of classes + homework and study time is just too much for me to do what I want/need to do.

      The car is black with recaro interior, everything is original save for the mid-90's sony head unit. Only the front two speakers are hooked up right now, but comes with 10 cd changer, all speakers as well as two additional boston 6x11 speakers in the back (think that's the size, don't quote me though, I am tired lol). It passed emissions and has an IM sticker through 10/2013. Car has 139xxx original miles on it. Along with the car I'll also include a full thule bike rack, complete with keys. The keys I don't actually have yet, waiting for them to come in the mail (does not come with fairing). I'll also include a new Sony xplod GT57UPW head unit that has built in iphone/android support, USB and aux jacks as well as pandora support if I get my asking price.

      Recent repairs include new distributor, rotor, cap, seal for distributor and voltage regulator. Body wise, it is very straight with no rust, save for some surface on the fender where the plastic fender where the flair would sit on the right front side. That flair is currently off the car, though I do have it and a second set of trim pieces, as well as some body clips. I'll just run down good and bad now and then post the pics, they do most of the talking.

      GOOD:
      Body is clean
      interior is 8.5/10
      16v is strong and in great condition
      new exhaust was put on by the PO
      all electronics function as they should, in fact everything functions normally except for the sunroof which needs a new crank motor (that's what I call it anyway, it's the piece that screws into the roof). I bought one off of here before for about 5 bucks, so not a hard replacement.
      all original

      BAD:
      The front motor mounts are shot.
      The front right spring and strut are shot, strut is leaking
      Needs new front and rear brake pads and rotors.
      Needs a new knock sensor on the exhaust, the cable on it some how was cut, not really sure how but it sends a code and the CEL pops on as a result. Also causes a slight hesitation on acceleration as a result, though once you are through that it goes fine.
      The paint by the headlights is chipped, looks like a lot of highway driving/rock chips were taken. The rest of the cars paint is in good condition but needs a proper detailing.
      Headliner board is about too cracked up to replace. I have spray and new cloth with foam that I'll include with the car if someone wants to give it a shot, but after pulling all the interior parts I found it to be a lost cause.

      To pass inspection you'd need to do the brakes at minimum. The pads have barely anything left.

      If you have the time and the tools the fixes aren't too hard at all, and it's worth it. The 16v on this thing is fantastic and pulls strong. The body also has a lot of potential. I'm hoping to get $1200 for it as is, or best reasonable offer, or else I'll keep it and hope to do repairs on winter break. While I need a DD, I also do have a certain attachment to this car, despite only owning it for a couple of months. It's fun, great looking and I actually got a phone number because of it from a female mk2 lover who goes to my college. I'm in East Norriton, PA and if I forgot anything, please ask. It's easiest to reach me by PM or email, which is hawkeasy@gmail.com .

      Onto the pictures:

      Engine and trans wise it runs fantastically. It's problems are elsewhere. I can post up some vids if need be of it running but I do have a few guys coming to take a look at it tomorrow and we wil see how it goes.

      It's not your typical beater though, doesn't grind going into second, revs as high as you want to rev and it starts right up. Hopefully it will be in someone's hands who has more time than I do within the next couple of weeks. As of right now it's only listed here because I prefer it to go to an enthusiast that will give it the love it deserves, not some tire kicker on Craigslist.

      Think I got everyone's message and responded, if no I apologize. I've had a deluge of emails and PM's for the car so I've had a hard time keeping up lol. Car may be gone after tomorrow, I'll know more tonight. Thanks to everyone who has expressed interest or has checked it out.
