Default Whats it worth/feeler thread 03 Jetta Wagon, 260k, $4000 in new parts

If interested, text 905 379 8089 for pictures and/or more information

I'm in the middle of piecing back together my 03 Jetta Wagon after a lifter took out my cam and a valve (no piston to valve contact, just did some damage to the top of the lifter stem). Tons of new parts. Never planned to sell this car but just picked up a Unicorn of a TDI, 5 spd Land Rover Discovery from Spain so contemplating selling the JSW. Below are a list of information and parts I'm in the middle of replacing. Expect to have the car done in a week or two. I've been working on these cars for 10+ years, and building cars in general for another 5+ on top of that and always do everything OEM++ and by the book.

Details: ~260k, Silver, Wagon, Black leather w/sunroof, 2nd owner (for 4ish years), no accidents, very small amount of rust at fender and rear hatch (original owner spent all winters in florida - retired ex-plane mechanic so he was almost as anal with the car as I am), all service history/parts receipts since new.

List of brand new parts alone totalling just under $4000 (like I said, I never planned to sell this car) Engine parts from IDparts.com and suspension from Rockauto - All receipts available and photos of work in progress as well. Also has a set of 70% Bridgestone Blizzak winter tires on OEM alloy Rims. Will likely need new summer tires on the 2nd set of OEM Alloy rims.

I just recently purchased a wagon, an 06 mind you, but if it was me, I wouldn't pay any more than 4 grand safetied and certified.

Youve had the car for 4 years so I can only assume its paid off. If you get the money back in the parts i would call that a win.


if you post it for sale, dont say that you already picked up another car

4k seems reasonable for a 15 year old unicorn wagon... You have to remember, majority of buyers won't care about the work you did to the car and money you spent..most will just see a 15 year old diesel wagon with 260km

Unfortunately that's now buyers see this.

If I were the seller, I would hold on to the Jetta at least 6 months after the Disco is on the road. Those Land Rovers are notoriously unreliable.

Listed it on kijiji last night. Waiting on a unicorn buyer for this unicorn car it seems. These alh jettas have their own little gremlins as we all know and they've all been handled and then some on this car. Unless I get what I'm asking for it, I'll likely keep it and just sell the disco if it comes to it.

You might as well keep it for when the Rover is broken waiting on parts

$7,000 for a 15yr old car that has the engine disassemled due to issues?

Price reflects the car being assembled, not as is. And you're right. Ad edited to include new air.

How can you realistically expect a buyer to buy this car before it's put back together if they can't even take it for a test drive?

I would recommend first putting the car back together, then drive it for a weeks or so to make sure all the bugs are worked out of it AND THEN listed for sale with an add that's not two pages long. Also, posting pictures when the car is not on a dolly can help greatly increase the chances of landing and interested buyer. $7K is a very optimistic asking price.

This. Since you asked in your original post, I will give my opinion. With the rust I see, it's a $3000 car when it's all back together.

Guess I was being generous when I said 4000 seems reasonable

Posted at roughly twice what it's worth, IMHO.
