After cleaning it up a bit (a quick wash, aero swap, GETTING IT RUNNING ):
Story behind the car and mods:
Previous Owner wrote:1988 Jetta GLI 16v. White. Manual 5-speed 4 door sunroof A/C power windows + locks with 155K miles and clean title.
I am the second owner of this vehicle, I‘ve had it for ten years. It was a Southern California car until 2002. It has been sitting outside in Daly City for about three years so there is some surface rust and a dent in the drivers door. The interior is in excellent condition besides the typical cracks on top of the dash.
The engine cranks but won’t run and I am now unable to work on it. So, I am selling it as is. I recently dropped the price to about the same as the junkyards offered. I'd rather brought it back to life.
Here is a list of some of the features and upgrades:
# Autotech street cams they currently cost $330 at autotech.com and have a lifetime warranty
# Recaro racing seats with power and manual functions. The driver’s seat has a small cigarette burn
# Dual Round Headlight Kit plus fog lights in front bumper

# Big Bumper upgrade, front and rear
# Volkswagen “GLI” embroidered floor mats, black and in excellent condition

# Autotech cross drilled and slotted brake rotors.
# Eibach sportline springs with Koni struts
# Autotech rear upper stress bar.
# Autotech power module. It’s like a chip but for CIS-E fuel injection and has a knob to adjust fuel pressure when the peddle is all the way down.

# Momo black leather shift boot with red stitching and aluminum shift knob.
