This VW Cabriolet has low (56,639) miles on it and is in excellent condition(see photos). This car has been garaged since new according to previous owners and myself. It has a clean Carfax with no accidents or defects and is a smoke-free automobile. The exterior has minor dings and light scratches that are hard to see. The A/C could use a recharge. The windshield has a few bubbles of rust just below the windshield seal.(see photo). Interior is in great shape as well as the seats.

After some digging, I was surprised to find out that these Aigner Edition Cabriolets with the 3-speed automatic are more rare than their 5-speed manual counterparts. A total of 1,460 Aigner Edition Cabriolets were produced, 809 of which were 5-speed manuals, leaving the other 651 examples equipped with the automatic gearbox. I’d suspect that someone wanting the cache of this special edition package would be more interested in cruising about, so the 3-speed automatic should be fine. Cabriolets of this vintage are hovering around the $5,000 to $8,000 territory for those in good shape, so given the mileage and rarity of the trim package on this one, I’d suspect we’ll probably see something close to the higher end of that range.

  1. Possibly the ugliest seats my eyes have ever seen.

  2. These are surprising fun to drive. I wish I hadn’t sold mine. I had the blue one.

  3. I agree those seats are some of the ugliest things (seats or anything) I have ever even seen. The colors, the combination of patterns and the … crests? It’s all literally unacceptably ugly.
