    I should be getting my 1987 2 door Jetta here within a couple weeks. It's my real first car but, I have a '94 Dodge Shadow that I got from my rents but im buying this car.

    details...

    2.0L 16v (70k on it)
    Autotech cams
    SuperSprint cat-back exhaust
    Koni adjustables in the rear
    Bilstien Sports in the front
    Neuspeed springs
    Neuspeed short-shift kit
    GTi tranny (15k on it)
    ABD air intake
    A/C remove
    OEM Euro big bumpers (rear and front)
    quad round grill w/ crystals
    mint condition Recaros (front and rear)
    '91 GLi "wing"


    :)

    pics...

    (It needs painted very bad, there are no dents and only one small spot of rust, nothing big. the doors are off a golf, becase the original ones had dents, so he just replaced them, and the same with the front passenger fender except its off a jetta, obviously.)

    it should be painted within a couple weeks after i get it :)

    Fock, thats a nice ride.

    I would crap for a coupe in good condition.

    I found a mint coupe a few months ago.. It was an automatic, so I walked away.. A day or two later I changed my mind and figured I would do the 1.8t swap with the 5speed tranny.. I went back to buy it, cash in my pocket and the bitch sold it for 500.00 under what she was asking for it!

    yeah, i've been looking for a 16v GTi but for the money i have, i've been unable to find what im looking for. I came across this in an old thread on vwvortex and could simply not pass it up. he wants $2500 for it with the wheels. I should hopefully have it within a couple weeks :) ill post more pics when i get it.

    If you want a project, there is a coupe here in texas with 150k on a 8v for $500. I will propably purchase it for a daily driver until i get the motor and paint in my 97 jetta.

    Mostly trim pieces.. I need the plastic carpet trim on the drivers side.. (covers the end of the carpet at the door sill).. Plastic cover for the rear wiper compartment on the rear hatch.. A new Fuba and base.. trim valance under the front bumper.. A rear hatch in good condition.. And finally, door panels...

    Its tough to find a boneyard here with A2's, let alone 2 door A2's.. We have a shop here that buys every junker or cheap car they can find, then they dismantle the cars and sell parts.. Problem is, they know what they have and they charge way too f*n much. I used to work there.. Owner is a total dick and the crew are full of idiots that have no clue what the difference between gas and diesel is.

    I think im going to get it painted black, even though there is no A/C. What colors do you guys think would look good on it?

    I need both fender flares on the passenger side, and the one that goes between both wheels and connects the front to rear fender flares. and on the driver side i need rear and the piece that connects them.
