2005.5 MK5/MKV Jetta BRM TDI - 5-speed - GTB1749vc Turbo with PD150 Injectors - 282,877 miles - $5000 OBO

This car has been an awesome daily. Only left me stranded once in 7 years (fuel pump) and it's a blast to drive with the power upgrades. Only selling because I’ve bought a 2015 Audi Q7 TDI and no longer drive the Jetta, otherwise I’d keep another 7 years! If you come to me when purchasing I have a 2-post lift in the garage and you’re welcome to inspect the car thoroughly top and bottom. I have an excel spreadsheet I can share with any potential buyer showing every maintenance item and otherwise that’s been completed on car since I purchased. Located in Buffalo, Kentucky, around 1 hour south of Louisville, KY.

Tempted here as well. Do you know if Kentucky provides temporary plates for an out of state buyer?

They do not Berks as our tags don't have to be turned in, so it could just be driven home on the KY tags as long as BBottoms is ok with it.

I've bought multiple vehicles from out of state but never sold one out of state. I'm not aware of any temp tags KY provides unless you purchase from a dealer. I could inquire though if you are interested. KY does require that I retain my plates when I sell out of state then turn them in, however, that's not really enforced. AutoTrader runs down the KY rules pretty well:

I'm sure we can work it all out though. Let me know if you're interested!
