There have been quite a few FS threads recently for people selling cars. While there is a specific section of the forum for selling cars, an item as large as a car really should be in a regional FS add.

So I have created this thread for users to post their cars for sale. I ask that you post all the relevant info and pictures in your post here and all correspondance can be conducted through PM's.

Or, simply post in the correct section and link your add in this thread for local viewers to peruse. This thread will be a sticky for better exposure and I will keep an eye on this thread and clean up any unecessary posts and delete any cars that are sold at the request of the seller.

Any further suggestions on how to handle this thread are welcome, but please do so via PM to keep this thread as clean as possible.

Thanks and good luck with your sales.

Thread clean up of OLD, SOLD and irrelevant posts.
If yours was one that I deleted and is still for sale, please feel free to re-post, but anything older than a couple months or has a dead link has been removed.
Thanks.

2000 Beetle 1.9 ALH
2000 New Beetle TDI, 215hp, AWD, 6spd manual, ~186000km.

Current asking price is $10995 CAD

Hi everyone,

I've finally made the decision to sell my 2000 New Beetle TDI. This is a very special car: I bought it when I was engaged as my last chance at a project car, and as a University of Waterloo Mechanical Engineering student it gave me a great outlet for my creativity and automotive passion for two years.

Story:

The car came to my life as a 90hp automatic with 160000km on it. I proceeded to do a standard 5 speed manual swap while upgrading the clutch, injectors, turbo and tune to transform this into a MK6 GTI-challenging machine capable of 1000km on a tank. The reverse shaft promptly began to crumble after less than 1 year (my fault, the transmission I put in had 550000km on it already. I was a broke student at the time so I had to take what I could get).

An Audi TT was for sale at a local VW parts place, so I managed to swing a deal and purchase the entire back half of the car including the AWD system. Instead of just replacing my bad transmission, I set to work replacing the entire drivetrain! I picked up a much newer and stronger 02Q TDI transmission with 110000km on it for better gear ratios, modified the case and swapped the front diff for the AWD one, and bolted it all up. I did the rear floor pan swap from the TT, repainted the rear end after sealing all of the welds, then bolted everything up and voila! A simple circuit to power up the haldex pump and I was enjoying an AWD, 215hp diesel Beetle all spring!

I honestly hate to see this car go, and not just because I'm taking a big loss on parts and an even bigger loss on the two hundred hours I've put into this thing - The reason I made the decision to sell is because I've got a baby on the way, and this car, while it will be mechanically sound when selling, will take much more time to maintain than a newer car and I can't have cars taking too much time from the baby.

Work that will have just been done upon selling the car (working on it at the moment)

- New pads (rotors are at ~10000km)

- New head gasket (OEM)

- New timing belt and water pump kit (metal impeller, continental belt)

- New valve stem seals

- ARP head studs (the OEM studs allowing a coolant leak is why I needed to do the head gasket)

- De-tune to roughly 200hp 300tq at the crank to get rid of the diesel smoke and be easier on the engine and the clutch

- New(er) upsized tires. Car is running 225/50 R17 Michelins with roughly 15000km on them

- New key fob

- Touched up paint (there are now no visible rust spots on the vehicle's exterior - undercarriage is quite clean for a 20 year old vehicle)

Features/Mods:

- Genuine Garrett VNT17 turbo

- Custom turbo back exhaust (2.5" from cat back) with stock catalytic converter, brand new Borla muffler

- Race 520 injectors

- 11mm injection pump

- FX Stage 2 clutch, new OEM throwout bearing (now takes Audi TT parts)

- 02Q 2011 Jetta TDI transmission with 110,000km and new trans fluid

- AWD system including driveshafts, bevel box, and haldex (fluid change done 2000km ago) from a 2003 Audi TT

- Drilled rotors to match up with Audi TT calipers

- 17" GTI Wheels - some peeling around the lugs of the clear coat

- Power locks/windows (all working)

- Heated leather seats

- Audi TT 62.5L fuel tank and lift pump (car gets 5.5L/100km average - a typical tank will be just under 1000km)

- OEM VW roof racks

- No Check Engine Lights!

Problems:

- The speed sensor is arduino-based since the 02Q transmission does not have a proper speed sensor. Not actually a problem, just an awareness item. It will be GPS-calibrated and I can include the sketch file so that you can calibrate for different tire sizes (i.e. if you wanted to lift it and put big 30" tires on) if you want.

- The clutch is rated for 330ft-lb but the car was technically running about 350 ft-lb for maybe 500km on that clutch. It will be de-tuned soon anyway, so I don't think any harm is done here.

- The A/C just stopped working. It has a low-mileage used compressor and a brand new OEM pulley/fan clutch/solenoid on it, and the fan control module has caused problems not activating the AC before so I suspect that's where the problem is.

Link to pictures (will be adding to this over the next couple of weeks - The pictures in here now are currently not great.)

You mentioned BEW so not sure if you guys are talking about my car but yes, body is exceptionally clean, fenders and trunk had rust but they were replaced under VW warranty in year 12 of the 12 yearr warranty. It was very well maintained but it has been sold now.

Thank you!

GLWS. Nice to see a BEW go this far and probably still has life left in it. Body looks exceptionally clean!
Wow! GLWS. It's nicely maintained, so why sell such a beauty?

For Sale- my winter ride, Hilda (sniff sniff).

Silver 2004 Golf TDI
The good:

Accident free. Less than 300k kms, skid plate, steel oil pan, roof racks, shine racing suspension with Koni FSDs, 20AE/GLI/TT front and rear brakes, rust free front fenders, frostheater, malone 1+ tune. This one had a good clutch from the factory. Fun as hell to drive, and a monster in the snow.

The bad (why I'm finally throwing in the towel):
Nearly dead battery, seized wiper clutch/motor, hood latch/cable problem so the hood won't open without work.

The ugly:
Cracked windshield, door locks can't be operated by inserting keys in the door, all my keys have been washed over the last decade and a half meaning that all buttons are now exciting "the alarm will start and then shut off at some point" buttons, wonky drivers side rear passenger door that will stay shut only sometimes after you open it, noisy serpentine/alternator pulley needs replacement, rear hatch lock and handles are corroded and need replacement, rear wiper/sprayer is also a PITA.

Bonus materials: comes with 1.8t pancake pipe and upgraded SMIC that I never installed because I'm lazy, two sets of rims, one with nearly completely toast winter tires, one with blizzaks that I was still going to run this winter.... and also has an installed 3 spoke wheel and airbag with a special "horn won't stop if the fuse is installed" feature.

It's been to Canadian Tire Motorsports Parkway. It's been offroad on hunting trips and Hilda has gotten into and out of bush that a Ford F150 got stuck in. It's been to the top of the blue ridge parkway.

Bought another car in 2017, and this has been my winter beast since. Problem is, if you let a 12+ year old car sit for 7 months straight each year, things need fixing when you turn it on. Cars are meant to be driven or totally babied. You might be able to tell by my description that this isn't exactly a garage queen.

Maaaaaaaaaaaayyybe won't pass safety without a bit of effort.

Best offer, as is (keep in mind, the skid plate and roof rack can be easily removed and sold if I scrap the car)
