      I recently picked up a 2000 VR6 5sp GTI in tropic orange metallic (beige leather) in trade for my beater powerstroke. It came from NJ last year some time. I thought I had tracked it down to belonging to nolig23, but there are too many differences (apparently there were 2 Y2k T.O.M. GTIs with beige leather on 18" BBS RCs sold in NJ last year?). I do know it's missing the front sway bar and the hitch had taken a hit and bent up the spare area (got it all banged out) but no damage to the body. Crappy projector headlights.

      Looking for some history - maintenance - problems? Seller said timing chains and clutch were done about 20k ago.

      Couple pics:



      Also - another Jersey GTI...

      My sister-in-laws nephew just bought this GTI... 05 1.8T with tip auto. Had 99k. I just went through and did timing belt/trans fluid/oil/ and fixed a bunch of broken stuff. Same here - looking for history (have the carfax) to explain some stuff (no foglight switch / no heated seats / bodywork covered by this paint job)

      More pics:

      I saw one of his pictures and was sure this was the car. At first we thought that guy that bought it swapped out a bunch of the parts (beetle headrests, coilovers), but he had a dent in the rocker that this car doesn't have. Miles are too high also. Wish I knew more about it - but I guess I'll learn as I dig though it.

      I found something in the car that says his name was Antonio M. from Lodi NJ. (not going to print his last name) - maybe I'll see if he's on facebook and send him a message. It's mostly stock so might not have been on the vortex. The Black/Red one seems too fast for a stock 1.8T auto and there are lots of little things done to it. Maybe the owner is around here somewhere!

      Thanks!
