• 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! :)

Feedback: VERY Poor etiquette
Communication: Excellent
Shipping: N/A
Comments: After many PM's back and forth about this transaction, the seller sent me his final price shipped and I said OK. I asked one more question that was answered promptly. The same day I sent full payment, soon after getting a full refund with the seller claiming that "he got a better deal locally, (more $$$) that he could not refuse." Also added an apology and that money is tight.

No real loss or gain - just saying.....

Bought: 2001 golf tdi from tdimotors
Date: 2/16
Feedback: average
Communication: average
Shipping: Arrived with busted mirror
Comments: Paid $6200 for "good running" car. I will say they appear to have an inclination to use aftermarket/chinesium parts. The big stuff it will need now is more suspension work, timing belt, and turbo. After one year of ownership, I'll be around $10k into a stock runner with 160,000 miles. I'm fortunate to have survived driving this "good running" car, although I wouldn't recommend this type of transaction for most people. It has very little rust and a straight one owner body which is amazing. Still I'd say be very weary.

I bought a Panzer Plate from maybe368 from his turned in 2014 Beetle. As it turns out it won't fit my new 2015 Beetle without cutting off some supports for the air box. maybe368 offered to take it back without issue. I thanked him for offering but will keep it and see what can be done. Dieselgeek sent me some instructions on how to trim the mounting tabs to make it fit, but I don't really want to carve into the car if I can help it. Thanks to maybe368 for the plate and the offer to take it back! Good person to deal with.

2002 Jetta Wagon GLS w/ 5-speed swap
Seller: Ksmoker
Date: Oct. 2015
Feedback: Negative

Bought a 02J trans swap from Ksmoker (Kyle Smoker of Prospect, VA cell: (434) 414-8724) and assisted him in a 2 day 01m to 02J trans swap. Also acted as his runner to get parts to complete the swap.

Comments:
1) Stated a good used clutch from "a friend" would be organized, it was not. So he installed the one from the donor car, but, it was a race clutch and was useless for city driving.
2) Stated he could replace a rear main seal, but, after he did, it leaked, since he used a screwdriver to install it. Since the RMS had to be replaced again, he stopped communicating and never followed through on mailing the skinny brake pedal to me (to do myself) either.
3) Stated the back up lights work, but, they didn't (wrong connector from donor)
4) Used an "I was robbed and I need the cash fast" tactic to try to get me to send him a large depo$it. Instead I went to VA the next day to do get it done. Nothing off the donor car was even pulled.

-He seemed trustworthy & knowledgeable, but, I would not trust his statements again. I offered to have him do additional work at the same time as replacing the RMS (again), but, no answer. The trans had to be pulled by another mechanic to repair the RMS, and the time & money lost un-recoverable. Le$$on(s) learned.

He seems to have disappeared as Ksmoker. Another user posted an even worse problem around the same time in 2015.
