    Vendor and Solicitation Threads


    Administrators are JJ-R32 and Gulfer

    Please contact the administrators for more details on becoming a golfmk6.com sponsor or vendor by using the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of any page or forum (http://www.golfmk6.com/forums/sendmessage.php )

    Golfmk6.com prohibits the advertising and solicitation of products and/or services from businesses and/or their agents without prior consent from one of the Administrators of this forum. Please PM an Administrator for clarification or permission BEFORE starting a thread or listing a business in your signature. Audits are randomly done and bans and citations will be given to violators of this rule. Each citation is reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the site administrators and moderators.

    Violating vendors of the rules below may receive a forum ban.

    1. Vendor advertisements Threads are to be posted in the Vendor Classifieds forum. Threads announcing promotions and discounts should be placed in the Vendor Classifieds forum. Cross-posting a thread announcing promotions and discounts across multiple forums is considered spamming and is prohibited.
    • New product announcement threads can go in the applicable forum, but sales of the product should go in the vendor forum.
    2. Vendors are allowed to organize Group Buys by initiating a thread in the Vendor Classifieds forum. Cross-posting a Group Buy thread across multiple forums is considered spamming and is prohibited.

    3. Signatures Advertisements are allowed but we ask to keep it of appropriate length. We also ask to add information on your signature line stating the company you work for, etc., so golfmk6 members know you are a vendor.

    4. Golfmk6.com members who choose to rate sellers in classified threads must post with a FIRST-HAND and FACTUAL account of a transaction and/or product. If for any unfortunate reason you must post a negative experience, please***GOLFMK6 MEMBERS PLEASE READ (Technical Forums)***


    The technical threads have become much more argumentative lately. Although this forum is relatively new, members have approached me regarding the direction some threads seem to head. As usual, posts will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

    When a thread involves a discussion regarding a particular product or company that you may not be in support of, you are expected to post responsibly/maturely if you choose to comment in such a thread. Failure to do so and you will be subject to infraction and/or ban.

    In regards to the ban: The initial ban might be for two weeks, followed by a chance to come back to the forums with a better attitude. If you choose not to change the intent of your post, then you will be permanently banned.
    Simple as that.

    Take care and enjoy the forum.

Not entirely sure I want to sell, in no rush what so ever. This is my rarely used third car that sits in my garage. I'll take it out for the occasional back road romp on a nice day, but, with other cars, a demanding job and two little ones at home the GTI just sits waiting to have fun. On to the car itself, I'm sure I'm forgetting some smaller items:

2011 two door in black. DSG. Cloth seats, sunroof. 87k-ish miles.
HPA K04 kit with blanket
Cobb AP with Stratified files
3" catted turboback
VWR intake
IE front mount IC
Aluminum IC piping
Catch can
R8 coils
Iridium plugs

Wavetrac LSD
Larger DSG cooler
Finned aluminum DSG filter housing
034 aluminum insert

KW V3's
IE camber plates
Hotchkis rear bar
Front and rear adjustable end links
Porsche/Brembo front brake swap
Stud/nut conversion

Falken Azenis 200tw sticky tires on Motegi Trak Lites, like new.
Also comes with all season Conti like new on stock Detroits.

Random stock/spare parts included.

I called this no excuses because it's exactly that. No stories, no BS. No lights on the dash, no intermittent CEL, etc. Tune is ultra refined from Alex at Stratified and runs beautifully. Quality parts installed by trained hands only (Drive Auto Works and Offcamber Autosport). Have oil analysis reports also showing the engine health. Needs nothing but to be enjoyed on a fun twisty road.

So, what's she worth? $12k seems fair to me..

Thanks,
Brandon

PS, car is located in Northwestern NJ. Clear and clean title in hand.

Youre always better off selling the parts separately and selling a stock/ish car afterward. As it sits you might be able to squeeze another 1-2000 out of what its worth stock to the right buyer - most buyers, even though they know its a STEAL, will tell you the car isn't worth more because of the work and parts on it. Thats the unfortunate nature of humanity.

You can make 5-10g off the parts then 10+ for the car

I know the smarter play is a part out, but, I'd sacrifice the net return for the time and effort associated with that. $10kish for the car, $2kish for what is done, per humanity. $12k is a fair number as is. Is that sensible?

Didn't work for me when I had a cobalt. I had 20k or more in the thing, wanted to sell it for 10k. No one was interested saying the car was worth X due to KBB no matter what. Sound up selling the parts for 10-15 no joke then the car for like 4 which was a low-ball ass deal.

This isn't "set up" for the buyer looking for leather. The wheel choice was based on weight, desired fit and not aesthetics or brand name. It's not the car everyone will pay 10k+ for, but it is the car someone will pay 10k+ for. I'm only so confident in this because I've already been offered somewhere between 8500 and 9750 a dozen times or more. It's not worth selling for that or less.

Keyword: someone, not everyone

And if you really have been offered "between 8500 and 9750 a dozen times or more"....why didn't you take it? :iono:

He said he was not in a hurry to sell so why take less then what you want?

I would pay 10k+ for it it was a manual. Exactly how I would have wanted it modded.

GLWS. It's a beautiful GTI.

Agreed this has very high quality mods and should go for a reasonable price to the right buyer. I think OP is totally reasonable. The LSD and suspension alone is worth more to me personally eg. than any whooped manual car with some budget air set up and anchor-like show wheels.

Exactly why I used the word my friend.

I have no reason to lie about being offered less than I want, and I anticipated that. The reason I didn't take was exactly that, it was less that what I deemed worth selling for. To me that is, be that someone kinda guy...

Glad someone sees it for what it is and what my intention was.

Anyone not in the market for a car built like this won't see the value and that is ok by me.

Anyone here bidding, best of luck.
