Well, I think I'm going to let this car go.  It's been a wonderful ride for me and is still under the VW factory 6 year/72k mile bumper to bumper warranty.

Selling it to buy something larger to make it easier to carry stuff when I go skiing, carry the dog, people and have another vehicle in the garage my wife can drive.  (Despite multiple efforts to teach her, she doesn't drive MT)

Anyways, here's my build thread on it

Here's the quick and dirty on it.  KBB trade in value is $39,500, private party sale is $42,500.  I've got probably close to $10k of mods on it.  I'd like to sell it as is, with all the mods on it and will include all the stock parts.  Priced very reasonably I feel.

GRM Price:  $38,500

Car has 23,xxx miles on it.  Only thing that's been warranty replaced by the dealer is the front passenger grab handle.  No, it's not TD1'd in the VW computer, all warranty is intact.

It had 3 oil changes before 5,000 miles and oil changes every 5,000 miles since with synthetic oil and OEM filters.

This car was vandalized, I think outside of my office.  They keyed the window glass, both front and rear windshields and both front and rear drivers side glass.  I had it all replaced with VW OEM glass by my body shop, Apex Auto Body, that restores multi million dollar Porsche 911's.  Other than that, no paint or body work on the car.

Golf Rs are no joke when built. So much fun.

Nnnnnngh. Good luck with the sale, Doc. I can't make it to Colorado, and I can't afford your amazing car unless I sell my boat.

Looking to see how much I can get for the boat...

In reply to Brett_Murphy (Agent of Chaos) :

Well, if you sell the boat, or decide to figure out a way to buy my R and then sell the boat, lemme know!  This car will have no issue with a fly n drive anywhere you care to go.
