Car sold, 10/2/21. Best of luck to everyone...

Selling it as it is my second car and I just am not using it... It is really fun to drive, it runs great. Was going to put it on Ebay but wanted to try here first. Let me know if you have any questions.

163k miles
2 door
Aluminum Skidplate installed (from Dieselgeek)
Just installed a bluetooth stereo a few months ago. (JVC)
Manual windows
5 speed
AC works well
Engine runs well.
Timing belt done at 149k miles on 6/2013. (updated info) (so you can see how little I have been driving it in the last few years...)
Just registered in CA (June). Passes California Diesel smog. (Last done last year, has passed every time.)
Powerplus 520 injectors installed (updated model info)
Have all maintenance records, all maintenance work done by dealer.
Have run mostly B20-B99 biodiesel in it.
Windshield in good shape. Replaced a few years ago. No cracks.
New battery (2/2021) recent tires (2020), new passenger window (2/2021). (Dates updated)
Short shift kit installed from Dieselgeek (I think, need to check)

Have one full working key/remote. One Valet key. parts for another key that can probably be put together.

To be completely upfront:
Clear coat is flaking off, as you can see in the photos. Some small rust spots. (see pics below, relatively minor) But this has only been in the Southwest (New Mexico/California).
Interior needs some work- driver mirror control doesn’t work (but you can move it manually)
Missing VW emblem in back. Replaced the hatch and it didn’t have one on it..

Included accessories:
Hitch (not installed)
Timing belt kit from Dieselgeek.
Some filters- air/oil.
Lots of small things, diesel purge, etc.

I don't see any rust at all in those pics. Needs a little V-Dub Luv but.... This should have sold in like 15 minutes IMO
