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
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.
