Default 05 Passat GLS w/ Manual Transmission Swap

This rust free, rock solid reliable TDI needed to stay within the community, but unfortunately sold to a non enthusiast who needed a work car.

2005 Volkswagen Passat GLS TDI
260k Miles
Power Windows
Power Locks
Power Heated Mirrors
Cruise Control
Cold A/C and Hot Heat
Heated Front Seats
Factory AM/FM/CD

Mechanically very sound. Starts, runs, drives and stops great.
Transmission was swapped @ 220k and the Valeo SMF 1.8t clutch was used. At the same time the head was rebuilt and a new billet cam was installed w/ black followers. BSM delete w/ ALH pump installed. Also received a new egr cooler. Since then it's had a new passenger motor mount, (the other one could use replacing at some point) transmission mounts and driver's cv axle.
No fluid leaks. Oil changed every 5k and it uses 1/2qt during that time.
Service work has been kept up to date with the correct fluids used throughout its life. Fresh oil change, fuel filter, air and cabin filter in the last 2k miles. New tires, brakes, upper links and tie rod ends late 2017 (<5k miles).

Always a western/southern car (AZ, NM, AL) so the exterior is nice and rust free. The western heat has taken its toll on the clear coat. Does show a few dings and small dents, (driver's rear quarter panel) but it's never been involved in a wreck and it's still a good looking car.

Interior is very nice, clean and comfortable. Cold air, hot heat and awesome seat heaters. Windows, locks, gauges and lights are function correctly. This one isn't plagued with the typical VW electrical quirks.

It's still running on the stock auto tune, so it throws the CEL for that.


Thank you,
