Hello everyone, Unfortunately the time has come I am going to need to part with my NB tdi. It is silver, cloth interior, power windows, locks etc. It started life as an auto but has been converted to 5 sp last year. It had a new clutch pp flywheel rear main etc at the time, maybe 2-3k ago. The TB waterpump rollers, roller bolts, tensioner (German kit)etc has been changed in the last 5k, when I bought the car. It has no rust and fair tires. It hasn't been driven regularly last couple months as I have been back in Michigan. I am going to be in NC this weekend and need to sell it to pay off an unfortunate debt I've incurred(my own stupidity). Not my choice but the easiest way out of a difficult situation. I'd like to see approx $4200 for it. I don't recall any check engine lights last time I drove it and A/c worked well. It has a aftermarket sony cd/usb player in it. let me know if there is any questions or interest. I'm trying to dig up some pictures now. THE CAR IS CURRENTLY LOCATED IN CARY,NC but does have a michigan title and I am a Michigan resident, plate is expired, don't know if that matters to anyone.

Also to add a few things. The car was purchased from a fellow TDi member with broken belt. I sourced a low mileage used head from a fella in Canada and replaced it. I still have the old head if any questions on damage. Someday i will rebuild the head. It was a southern car all its life and has only seen Michigan once or twice for a weekend. The maint wasn't neglected, the prior owner had the service done at diesel specialist and they used a flennor brand belt, it failed at 56k of service iirc. Thanks

So is the front seat cut or did you take a corner too fast? ;)

Do you have any photos of the pistons when you replaced the head? Do you have compression numbers? (I'm just wanting to know if there's any bottom end damage.)

The goofy beigey thing in the pic is actually a piece of a weed I think. There is no cut in the seat. Maybe a little fuzzy wear on the driver side bolster but no holes! I don't have compression numbers, never checked them, but did measure piston to deck and they were good.This one didn't seem to slam the valves into oblivion like the jetta I bought had done.All the lifters came out, though two or three had spider web cracks, cam was intact, valve seats still in place! I do also likely still have some pics with head off and of the replacement head before putting it on. I'll try and dig them up tonight, as they are on another hard drive. I likely also still have the receipts or at least email confirmations of my orders for the parts used like the clutch kit and the belt kit etc.
