Cons:

One side of the car has been repainted, its a clean job, motorcycle scraped along the side of the car while parked under the previous owner. The car needs a professional polish and the rear bumper has some scrapes. It's a 13-year-old car and spent time in DC. I had all the dings removed but there is one by the trunk.

The navigation doesn't work. The drive replacement helped boot-up times but the nav is out of date and still doesn't follow your movement on the screen.
Occasionally the screen won't turn on with the back-up camera. Maybe 1 in 5 times. No idea why replacing the drive helped with this but its still an issue.

There is some vibration around 65-70 due to the axles, they are the original OEM axles, boots are fine. Vibration is pretty mild, a common issue with these cars.

The driver side power steering boot is greasy, its been this way for the last 10k miles, no leaking what-so-ever.

The OEM wheels don't fit over the front calipers. OEM wheels are in good shape with lots of tread on tires. Current tires have at least another 15-20k worth of mileage in them.

I no longer have the OEM suspension

One fog light has a crack, never got around to replacing it.



I put 20k on the car with no issues, its never left me stranded or ever even had a hiccup.

The engine has never been modified/tuned. It was kept maintained and in stock form. Routinely get 31-32 MPG highway. Transmission shifts beautifully, no pops or grinds.

Selling because I want to go down to one car, insurance on two cars is hateful.
I'm in no rush, however, it can't sit in my garage for as long as it needs, if I find a higher paying job anytime soon I'm just going to keep it as a back-up car.

Thanks,
Justin

Yea, I am very conflicted about selling. I’m bad about not keeping cars super long. This is a tremendously good car, best manual transmission I’ve ever owned by far.

No, they are sitting on the beams up high in my garage, I'll either sell separately or see if the buyer wants them for a deal.

All the photos in my thread are accurate as far as condition. If someone is interested I could take some photos of whatever angles they want.

It is sad to see it go, it's been a great car, it served me well when I had to go to MS then FL for training. It really needs a professional polish but otherwise is in damn good shape for its age. If it was worth a bit less I'd give it to my stepson, but (with his attitude) I'm not handing down a car of this value and rarity.

Here she sits in storage mode.

Also of note, it has the black interior, which is supposed to be rare for the blue exterior color.

I am digging the platform change, manual Golf R is a little beast.
