Thought you all might be interested in this. It's NOT mine! I just found it on Ebay.



I've been looking for one of these but I desperately want a wagon... Maybe I'll have to settle for this....Nah! I'll wait for a wagon!

Later!

Yea, I bid on it and have been waiting for it to get closer to close to rebid.

Just got notification all bids are cancelled it is "no longer available for sale"
Grrrrr!

Nobody actually sells on Ebay anymore! They always cancel the auction and sell it off Ebay!

Seems a bit strange that with such low mileage, the tires have already been changed to Coopers and at least one other? You'd think that the OEMs wouldv'e lasted at least 70k.

Perhaps they swap them out for snows come winter?

Who knows.

I spoke with this seller on and off last summer about a white B4 (which sold for $10.5k) and he told me that he typically gets 8-10k for the clean lower mileage B4s.

One can only guess that he got a local cash offer or some similar sort of transaction. These days 97 B4s esp Variants are commanding top dollar! I'll never sell mine though. I plan to drive it till one of us dies first.

Beautiful car to bad it’s sold. I found a 99 Jetta TDI down in south Texas on eBay. It was there for three days and then they took it off. I hate that. Not fair. Lol

My OEM Badyears on my 97 Passat didn't last much past 50-60k (can't remember exactly). So I'm not surprised that the originals are off. FWIW, I'll be ready for a fourth set of tires at around 170-175k this coming fall. And I'm no boy racer.

she's listed as an "auto". This must be a very special car.
It would suggest the seller knows absolutely nothing about the vehicle.

DNL has been pushing TDIs on ebay for quite a while. They often sell before auction gets over. Must have made a mistake about tranny. In text it says "super smooth five speed". Not familiar with their operation. They are near Albany, NY, down east somewhere.
