As most of you know, I treated this car as if it were in bubble. It’s never seen winter, and if there was rain in the forecast, it would not get driven that day. It’s been garage kept and still looks showroom fresh.
My house was hit by the tornado that swept through N. Minneapolis, and the R was damaged as well. It was repaired by Golden Valley Collision, where they replaced the driver’s door skin, the driver’s door window, the windshield, the hood, passenger’s headlight, grill, driver’s fender, and passenger’s fender. All of the replaced parts are 100% OEM VW parts, and it looks as good as the day I bought it.
Now, the reason behind selling. I bought this car brand new, and I put 12,000 miles on it the first year I owned it, and only 1,000 miles since. My goal was to keep this car as basically a time capsule. It’s a collector car and only 5000 were brought to the US, and only in 2008. The car will no longer be as I had intended. It still looks 100% perfect, but my neurosis will never let me love it the way I did. I really can't have new things and enjoy them the way most people can, so I need to let the car go to someone who will enjoy it, and move on to something used.
My only option is to sell it, hopefully to someone who will be able to drive the piss out of it, and still appreciate the hard work I put into keeping it as nice as I did.
I am asking $28,000 for it, and I willing to talk.
There are several examples around with significantly more miles and non-NAV, selling for the same or more, so I think the price is fair.
I have also talked with a few dealerships locally, that are interested in buying it outright. However, I would rather give the enthusiast community a chance to own it.
Thanks for reading, and here are some pics.
*The only things that differ from the below pics are the color matched side markers,and no plate front end. I can update pics if needed.
