    2004 Jetta 5spd 235k - NorCal - minor body damage $3k?

    Bump. I'm not getting much interest on this car. Too many miles I guess? I'll probably just keep it as my beater car. Maybe next year I can put it on the track in 24 Hours of Lemons or Champcar.

    What should i pay for this 03 wagon?

    Wow, that is a lot! ShiftyPowers, I live nearby and could check it out for you. Unless you absolutely HAVE to have a wagon, you can find one for much much less. BUT, if you can live without a waygon you should buy my 2004 sedan for 1/2 the price!

    2004 Jetta 5spd 235k - NorCal - minor body damage $3k?

    Suspension work done (new Bilstein TC sports and lowering springs), new front brake rotors, will do fluids this weekend, and replace dogbone and TB area upper engine mount as well. Haven't decided whether to replace the AC compressor or not. I'll be ready to sell maybe next week (early April)...

    I just saw that car on CL. What a markup!!! Anyway, the car is in my town if anyone wants me to check it out for them.

    Roll cage for a Mk4 Jetta?

    Thanks Bob, that's what I was guessing. I have several options nearby (EvilGenius, etc) but I was kinda hoping to save a few $100s. I'll just have to get it done right and pay the extra.

    Roll cage for a Mk4 Jetta?

    Are there any options for custom built roll cages that are bent and cut perfectly that you can just weld in yourself? I want one for LeMons and Chump/Champ and Lucky Dog, but it really has to be perfect and I'm not confident in, for example, the Autopower cages...

    Bay Area Meetups?

    I'm getting back into the TDI game. Picking up my old 2004 Jetta that I used to own and am planning on racing it in LeMons/Champ/Lucky Dog. Maybe I'll have a build weekend GTG at some point in April or May? If anyone's interested in racing with me send me a PM.

    Racing / auto crossing TDIs

    I ended up building a Lancia Scorpion for LeMons and am still running that one. It's awesome! Next race end of March. But I recently acquired my old Jetta TDI (BEW) and will be prepping that for LeMons/Chump/Champ/Lucky Dog this summer. If anyone in the NorthBay CA area want's to join in on...

    Racing / auto crossing TDIs

    I'm going to get a LeMons team together in the NorthBay area pretty soon. Will be looking for a junker NewBeetle to set up for hopefully Dec Sonoma and maybe Sept Buttonwillow races.

    2002 Jetta Sacramento (bad trans)

    Meh, what's $700 among TDI friends!? I still really want to run a TDI Beetle in LeMons next year, so if you or anyone can get me one in any condition (the worse the better...like from the bottom of a lake for example), PLEASE let me know!!! Preferably around $500, but I can work with maybe up...

    2002 Jetta Sacramento (bad trans)

    Maybe up there, and probably most of the rest of the country, but not in the Bay Area. Anyway, we're about to sell it for $1300 today unless any better offers come in. Let me know ASAP if you're interested!

    WTB: functional 01M, or FS: 2002 Jetta bad trans (NorCal)
