• The TDIClub classifieds section is a heavily trafficked section of the forum that encompasses want-to-buy (WTB) and for-sale (FS) threads for the entire world. Due to the demanding nature and fast pace of this section, it is imperative that you know and understand the rules. It is also important to remember that this is the only parts classifieds section.

    Cross-posting and posting classifieds in the regional sections (except the dedicated thread in Ontario) is not permitted.

    Multiple items should be sold in one thread. Make sure to provide a description for all items in your post along with pictures and prices. If you start multiple threads with individual items, they will be locked or combined at the discretion of the moderators.

    Here is a quick outline of the classifieds section rules. If you don't follow these rules, you subject yourself to thread deletion, thread combination, infractions, or posting privilege revocation.

    Thread titles:
    • Put FS or WTB in your thread title. This will let other users know if you are selling or buying.
    • Briefly describe what you are selling. Thread titles have limited space. Be as descriptive, yet succinct, as possible.
    • Put your location in the title.
    • If space allows, put your price in the title

    Title example (single item): "FS: 2004 Mk4/BEW cylinder head - Portland, OR - $500"
    Title example (multiple items): "FS: MK6 fog lights, front bumper, headlights, grill - Detroit, MI"
    Title example (car part-out): "FS: Mk3 Jetta parting out engine & interior - Dallas, TX"

    Thread text descriptions and pictures:
    • All for-sale threads must include pictures of the items that you are selling. One picture is sufficient, but multiple pictures with different angles will help buyers. A picture is worth a thousand words. If you don't know how to post pictures on TDIClub, see this thread: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=286691
    • All for-sale threads must include a description. We don't charge per-word, so be as descriptive as possible. The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for buyers.
    • All for-sale threads must include a price. Auctions and bidding are not allowed. If you want to auction something off, use eBay.
    No picture, no price, NO SALE!

    Thread maintenance/updates/bumps:
    • When you sell something, update your thread with "SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title.
    • If you have multiple items for sale, update your thread as each item has been sold. When everything has been sold, updated the thread with "ALL ITEMS SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title when all items have been sold.
    • If you bump your thread, please delete old bumps by clicking on EDIT and then deleting the old bump. This will reduce clutter in your thread and make it easier to read. It also makes you look less desperate.
    • If you drop your price, please update your first post in addition to posting the new price. If you would like the thread title changed, click on the report post icon and let a moderator know what you would like the title changed to.

    Moderator intervention and infraction points:
    Moderators will be monitoring the classifieds section. If a moderator determines that you have not been following the rules listed above, corrections will be made and infraction points will be assessed to your account.

    What is an infraction point? Simple - it's a system of keeping track of user behavior. A moderator can assign a point value based on the severity of the infraction, as well as an expiration date on the points assessed. If you accumulate a certain number of points, the system will auto-ban you for a predefined amount of time. The more points you accumulate, the longer your ban period will be.

    One example of points is as follows: multiple threads will be combined into a single thread, with the number of infraction points assessed corresponding to the number of threads merged. If we merge four threads into one, then you will be assessed four points that expire in 30 days. When you reach five points, the system will auto-ban you for one day.*

    *This is an example based on the current infraction system structure. We reserve the right to modify the infraction system at any time without notice or updates to this announcement.

    Thank you for your cooperation, and good luck with your sales and searches! :)

5 speed with .68 5th
Non sunroof GLS.
Tan cloth in good shape.


388k miles on car, 217k on motor
Runs smooth with good compression, but overheats. I'm assuming bad head gasket.

Everything but the roof rack is up for grabs...

Complete ALH swap including harness, ecm, etc (obviously will need the head gasket replaced)... $1100

Manual trans swap with stock ratio 5th... $800. If you want the .68, I'm willing to sell it, but I need to do some research to see what it's worth.

Everything else, make offers!

It's probably best to text me. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to get pm notifications from this forum. 4344148724

Why would you part out that car????

What is the deal lately with these perfectly good, fixable cars being chopped up? I don't get it. Is it just greed? :mad:

Some say greed, I say common sense? A 388k mile car that needs $2k of work, after which it's worth... $2k. Or part it out and put $2k in my pocket instead? If you don't like what I'm doing with my car, feel free to make me an offer. Except it's already sold.

So, for $2k you could continue to drive a fuel efficient, reliable car for quite a while.... Mine has nearly 500k on it. I won't ever let it get to the point that it needs $2k worth of work all at once, but for some reason even if it did, I'd fix it and motor on. I do this every day. We bring cars back to life, get them back into service, and for less than half the cost of the cheapest new Versa crap box you have a nice reliable 50 MPG TDI. :cool:

So yes, common sense. :)

Just bought another one yesterday for $1600.

That's how I figure too. Bought a 99.5 for a grand that had a completely destroyed engine, filthy interior, and clapped out suspension. 265K mi. Plan on dumping about $4K worth of parts and have a completely rebuilt car for $5K that gets 50MPG and is cake to work on. People think I am nuts...

Yep, did that with my Golf. It had 383k miles on it at the time, not running (dealer timing belt job). Paid $1500 for it, probably spent another ~$3k or so in repairs, deferred PM, and some upgrades.... still driving it 110k miles later, and in that time the only thing outside of scheduled PM and a set of tires it has needed is a top seal on the injection pump, a window regulator, and a few bulbs. Still gets 50+ MPGs. Still starts right up every time hot or cold. Everything still works perfectly. Heck, it still even looks reasonably decent considering how many miles it has covered despite the rock chips on the leading edge of the hood.

I don't think a lot of people realize just how good and unique [in this country] the pre-2009 TDIs are in that they are a "modern" car with good performance in the real world with an engine/ engine management system that is about as simple as something from the late '60s but with OBD. It is like the best of everything rolled into one cute little four wheeled package. :D

100% I just brought a 2002 Acura RL after driving my Golf for 7 years I didn't realize how much I was saving in fuel costs...
The Acura is a pig on gas and I have to put premium in it...
Needless to say... the Acura is for sale and I am looking for a Passat TDI..

The Golf is getting some much needed attention..
Found and fixed a coolant leak, looking to replace the exhaust and pass emissions test. Then replace the turbo...

Wow. Maybe someday I'll be as smart as you guys.

I bought that car already needing the work because I wanted some parts it came with, and it was cheap. I drove 1300 miles round trip to get it. I owned it for less than a week. For me, it made far more sense to part it out than to do the repairs... even though I ended up selling it whole.

I'd never part out my own personal daily driver. I'll own that car till it rusts to pieces.
