I am in love with my Passat TDI and get 50+ mpg and I am working on veggifying it 

so I decided to sell my audi.  I have put on about 40k miles on this car since I 

have owned it.

It currently has 190K on the motor and body. The speedometer was replaced at 

130K, it now reads 60k.  I have replaced passenger side electric window motor + 

plastic housing, tachometer, switch cluster, powersteering pump + belt, brand new 

this spring 2x front control arms, 2x tie rod ends, 2x strut bearing + mounts, 2x 

boge turbo gas in front, orbital slotted rotors in front and back with low dust 

pbr pads, new throttle cable, clutch master + slave cylinder, thermostat, rear 

passenger rubber brake line, new headliner, aftermarket steering wheel, momo 

shift nob.  

This car is lowered on hr springs with boge turbo gas in front and bilsteins in 

the rear.  Moda wheels with brand new wintersport m3 tires (paid $500 all said 

and done before last winter, maybe 5k miles on them).
Differential locks and unlocks properly. No ac, the ac clutch is stuck. E-brake 

needs to be tightened up a little. Never chipped, boosts up to 1.3 bar.  I 

installed a VDO boost guage on the driver side pillar with a light for it wired 

into the middle of the dash with a dip switch. Replacing a tired speedometer 

sensor and a leaky P.S hose this week. Powersteering flud switched over to Mobil 

1 synthetic ATF fluid.  This car uses absolutely no oil between changes, I have 

been using amsoil 20w50 in the summer and 10w30 during the winter with WIX 

filters. The k26 turbo boosts as it should and doesnt have any shaft play.  The 

timing belt needs to be dones in about 15k miles.  

As you can see in the pictures I repainted this car, I was backed into in a 

parking lot by a large Ford truck.  You can see the repair by the gas cap, the 

sheet metal was dented in a little. I pulled it out and skimmed some filler over 

it. The paint is the stock tornado red, I did this paint job myself, It is far 

from perfect but a lot better than when I bought this car, the paint was peeling.
Also the currently is a dent by where I fixed the damage by the gas cap, some 

drunks thought it would be cool to kick my car one night. There is a cd player 

that comes with the car, it is currently not hooked up due to some people 

breaking into my car during the night and ripped it out but did not take it with 


Also the clutch on this car works very well yet it was replaced during 2002 by 

the previous owner, I would estimate that it has 50-55k on it now. If I remember 

correctly it was a sachs sport clutch.

I am open to offers on this car, I really don't need to sell it. If I don't get a 

good offer I will just keep it for my winter rescue car.

I will not ship this car out of the country so don't even bother.
