Sure there's interest. Pics would help though. The tranny won't last we know, so the inevitable manual swap will be factored into any buyer's decision price-wise..."pretty much immaculate" sounds nice.

Thanks for your input "newbie". Maybe if you contributed something nice to my thread rather than bad mouthing the tranny (which you know nothing about its condition), more folks would be inclined to have me send them photos. Folks on this forum know I'm not going to sell a TDI with an impending tranny issue. Bump this fine Golf to the top! Moderators, can you please advise this poster about posting decorum?

Maybe you shouldn't immediately get defensive, lash out, be condescending, and blame him for the lack of interest in your car.

Instead, take the advice and post some pictures of your car. If you're not proactive in selling your car, then don't be surprised when it's hard to sell. Your car will sell a LOT easier if you try to minimize the effort required for somebody to buy it. I usually don't even bother looking at ads that don't have pictures.

Need pictures, recent repair info on IP and trans. That would help in selling. Perfect body is a plus.

Thanks.

1 out of 10 people don't want the 01M auto b/c it will fail w/out notice. People buy autos with the intention of replacing it with a manual (5 or 6sp) and they do like autos b/c they have the larger 11mm injector pump. So that's a plus. I have bought two '03's (Golf and Jetta) both autos, and did the swap. The larger pump did factor into my decision to buy the cars with the autos. Good luck with your sale.

I resealed the pump. Anyone know how to insert photos in a thread without using 3rd party hosting? Photobucket is trying to charge for photos now. Also 01M trannys don't go out as often as idiots who are trolling my thread seem to think. This one is fine and a fluid change would prolong its life even longer!

Calling potential buyers in this thread "idiots" and "trolls" who are requesting photos and condition information won't get your car sold. As a long time member here (you!), you should be aware that it's a buyer's market for 15 year old TDI's with automatic transmissions.

And, many of us know how to use the photo insertion tool (see above link in previous post). There are instructions and once you figure it out, it's really pretty simple.

GLWS!
