GTI For Sale

Well, since I finally bought the R32, I'm looking to sell my GTI. Here are the vitals:

2003 Volkswagen GTI VR6, ~71,000 miles

200-hp 2.8L 24v V6, 6-speed manual

Silverstone Gray, Black leather

Fully loaded – Leather heated seats, sunroof/Monsoon stereo package, Technology Package (Climatronic auto climate control, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming rearview mirror), CD changer

Lots of extras – Two sets of wheels (both 17” alloys, one with summer tires, one with all-season tires), Monster Mats (original carpet mats in perfect condition), aluminum pedal caps (originals included)

Extended warranty included – Good to 7 yrs/100,000 miles (over 2 yrs/29,000 miles left), VW RealDriver Platinum warranty, fully transferrable, best on the market, covers a ton
Full maintenance records, dealership kept for first year of life, only used synthetic oil and premium unleaded

This is a rare car. I’ve only seen one other gray VR6 on the road. This is one of the most desirable color combinations. The Silverstone Gray is very easy to keep looking clean, and it does not show swirl marks like darker colors. While I have taken it through automatic carwashes, I’ve never let them use those scratchy brushes on it, so the paint is in great shape aside from the typical stone chips and a bumper gash that come with life on the road. Touch-up paint is included.

The interior is very clean. I’ve never let anyone smoke or eat in the car, and it does not show the typical wear and tear that many Mk IV VWs have, such as peeling rubber coating on the door handles. The leather is in excellent shape and I’ve conditioned it to keep it that way. It has a full owner’s manual in very good shape, as well as spare tire and tools.

As far as the typical VW part failure issues, the windows have already fallen and the regulators have been replaced with the higher-quality metal ones that won’t fail. The ignition coils and taillight switch have been replaced under recall. To my knowledge, everything on the car is in good working order.

I'm looking for $14,000 for everything, including the transfer fee for the warranty.

You can call me (Randy) at 516-655-0698 or email me through this post.

Please forward this to anyone you think may be interested.
