I have a deep burning desire to own those wheels.
I had a sweet Turbo button on my 386 and 486DX. Pretty sure that made them extra awesome.
This is awesome. Sounds like a great adventure.
I had a 2008. Great truck. The big gotcha is the radiator and trans fluid mixing in the radiator. If caught quick, you can flush them a few times and it’s fine. If not, well.... Check for receipts for trans flush and for a new radiator. Either one would be a red flag in my mind.
Based on the near universal response that the 996 gets, Ill just keep my 996. Apparently the IMS fails on every 3rd engine start, the AOS will fail, the interior looks like a 95 Ford Taurus, and there are eggs on the hood. Cool. That’s why I could afford it.
Oooh. Now we’re talking. I want both, but if I had to spend my own money it’s the BMW. That’s for a couple reasons, BMW people are split with a large portion really disliking them (that makes me happy), and they are just so damn cool. I loved my old E36 and I hear these get a bit tail happy. Sounds perfect.
You speak the truth, but missed the real reason. Damn CVT.
True. I am fortunate to have a gift for finding stuff, the job to support the habit, and a wife who doesn’t care.
I’m in NH. Oppo price is $2500.
Very nice! My Mk5 was a 3 door, I definitely preferred the look and ease of entry/exit for me into the driver seat. My kid is limber and had no issue getting into the back. Sadly, the crew cab is the only choice in the US for a couple of years now, so that’s what I got this time. I like the utility of being able to…
There’s an 06 and 01 that both have new frames and in great shape locally. Looking at 06 first, it’s a bit more, but 5sp vs 4, more power and it’s A limited vs SR5 so leather. Both are cheap enough I can pay cash without any real difficulty.
Do the math over a couple tanks. WHen I lived in IA I could get both. Price difference was 1-2%. Mileage was 7-9% depending on the car. My cost per mile was less on non ethanol, so that’s what I ran.
This is my dad mobile. It’s the 4th GTI I’ve owned. Plenty of room for my wife and son, plenty of room to haul stuff, great in snow, extremely fun to drive, great on gas. Great tech, very safe, and has air vents in the back to keep my son comfortable. I’ve owned a lot of cars, nothing has come close to the pure joy of…
It’s been pretty consistent.
I’ll kick in $20 towards that.
The rust I see doesn’t bother me, but they aren’t showing the parts that actually rust. Go see it and before getting in, lie down and look at the inside of the frame on the passenger side next to the muffler. I’d bet you find that it’s rusted through right there. They pretty much all are. Mine has been patched there,…
I’m still in touch with the guy who bought mine. He still loves it and it’s going strong. It’s nice to get updates. Maybe you’ll get them too.
Motor Trend is showing the whole thing in the US. It’s nice to not have to jump around illegal streams this year to see it.
Nicely done! Selling a car is a unique experience. A little bit of regret with a whole lot of relief and excitement.
