    EOI/Enquiry: To sell 1995 Golf GL 2.0L

    Hey guys,

    I'm not putting this up in the For Sale section yet because I haven't made up my mind, but I just want to get an idea of how much I could get for my car. I have checked sites like Carsales, Carpoint and Drive and have found a few examples similar to mine (if not more km) going for a good $7-10K. Seeing that I have made some new changes to the car for the better, I think I can get the top end of that mark for it, though I might be dreaming (snap me out of it, if so).

    Also, I would prefer to fix up the problems (mainly the misfiring) before selling as I don't want to pass it on to the next owner. If anyone can help me diagnose, that'd be great - it has only been misfiring lately (before it used to be just false starting). I have changed ignition coil and it still does it, so it's not that. I have yet to change the spark plugs and leads though. And today, I made sure all the relays/fuses were plugged in properly - it hasn't misfired since, but sometimes it doesn't want to start (doesn't ignite fuel), but it's a one-time only thing as it turns on fine the next go.

    Anyway, if I get a decent response here, I will copy and paste the following into a new thread in the "Cars for sale" section :

    VW Mk3 Golf GL 2.0L (1995 build date, first registered in 1996).
    129,xxx km (to be serviced at 130,000km).
    • Owned since 100,000km (previous owner was family).
    • Since our ownership, car has seen oil changes every 5,000km, with mechanic check-ups every ~10,000.
    • 95 and 98 octane fuel used always (98 only now, after reading discussions here on VWW).
    • Ignition coil changed.
    • Disc brakes changed just before ownership.
    • AC and heater working great (keeps me cold in summer, and hot in winter).
    • Newly changed wiper blades.
    • Factory navy blue dash - not common.


    Some of you have seen it before - those who have, can attest to how well I keep the car, with biweekly-monthly washes and a full clay/polish/wax job before the VW Nats earlier this year (I'm a bit of a novice detailer but I'm learning):





    Courtesy to Matt for this pic.


    It has the following modifications done were not original with this car (mostly cosmetic):
    • OEM side skirts
    • OEM VR6 lip
    • OEM black rear VW badge
    • **"Mk4 GTI"-look taillights**
    • **Custom badgeless grille (3 slat)**
    • Koni Special (Red) struts + Koni 1020 lowering springs (rated at -40mm) including new bumpstops, front mounts and I will include newly bought lowering spring seats (rated at -10mm) - 6000km old
    • **Custom OEM dual chamber headlights**
    • **Smoked aftermarket side indicators**
    • **OEM lower glovebox**
    • Modded airbox (also I have an extra spare untouched airbox)
    • Clarion DB566USB headunit (with CD/MP3 CD/MP3 player/USB Stick inputs) + Clarion SRS1686 2-way splits
    • Removed "Golf GL" emblem (I still have it and will include)
    • Shortened shifter (not a true short shifter) with Momo leather knob + leather boot
    • **15x6.5 ET45 BBS RS wheels with 195/55R15 Goodyear F1 Eagle (GSD3) tyres (6000km old)**
    • OEM VR6 wheel arch textured mouldings unfitted but will be included


    Modifications marked with ** are items that I won't mind swapping the original items back onto for reselling (or swapping + money) to anyone interested, or they will go on my next Mk3 (hehe).

    Now, the problems:
    • Occasional misfires/false starts - will be trying to rectify the issue during the upcoming service
    • Rear driver's window regulator is out - I have a new one to be put in soon
    • Minor rust spots in the door sills and some other random parts of the car
    • Slight ding on the bonnet (can't tell unless you're fairly close)
    • Crudely filled part on a small section of the front textured bumper top (can't tell unless you're fairly close)
    • Bumper paint has seen better days


    Overall a tidy, well-kept car that in my opinion would best serve as a first car. Looks good without drawing attention!

    Price: $TBA

    Sorry about the long post - if any of yous could figure out, I want to replace the 2.0 with a 2.8

    I am willing to do so if I find interest in the whole car first!

    Thanks for the kind words Alex. I'm thinking of selling purely because I'm ready to get myself a VR6

    I will swap/sell a few things if potential buyers don't want them - sorry but I want to get the maximum amount of money out of it so I can get the funds for a VR6!

    Guys, gimme a few more days - I think it can be done.
