I truly regret not buying one of these new. At the time my uncle was still working for VW and I could have had one on the cheap. Instead I was messing around with a silly RX8 at the time. This sentiment is too little too late as there are precious few good examples out there on the used market these days. What you can find is overpriced or modified beyond reason. Here is a neat, if not a little dirty low mile R32 on the east coast.
From the seller -
“WHAT CAN I SAY A TRUE RARE VEHICLE,OWNED BY SAME FAMILY SINCE NEW,ONLY 15320 MILES,YES IT HAS LEATHER SEATS,NO ACCIDENTS,RUNS OUT 100%.THIS IS ONE OF ONLY 2000 MADE IN BLUE FOR 2004.ANYONE WHO KNOWS THESE CARS WILL REALIZE WHAT A RARE OPPORTUNITY THIS IS.”
Kind of a lazy ad, is there a car selling manual somewhere that preaches the use of caps to help sell cars? Between that, the lack of details, the overall cleanliness of the car, and the half arsed pictures it makes me wonder what the seller is thinking. Maybe they are not, I just happen to be of the opinion that this car deserves every chance to looks its best and potential buyers deserve an appropriate amount of detail around this car they are looking to buy sight unseen.
It matters none, the car is at $17k and the reserve is off. This car will sell and I think a final selling price of $19k seems reasonable. Congrats to whomever ends up with this excellent example.
