This car has been in storage in a garage not far from my house. The car is still registered and insured. I put a LOT of man hours and elbow grease into this car and basically restored and rebuilt everything including the top. Message me for a link to the build thread on this car that has thousands of photos and detailed description of ALL work completed, breakdown on the car and specs as well as photos - Negotiable but please dont low-ball. Call / text anytime . There are literally only about 200 miles on ALL of the new parts and work listed below. Note this is a VERY rare model and there was only roughly about 400 of these built in Blue. Actual Mileage around 180

Nardi Refinished Steering wheel ( will be included if i dont get beatup too much on the price).
Alpine type X crossovers, speakers and tweeters in the doors.
Polk Audio spears in the rear
Pioneer bluetooth handsfree head-unit. The entire stereo and all speakers are custom wired, brand new by me. Done properly. System sounds amazing.

New Headlight switch.
Vent's repaired in the dash so they all seal properly. Heat works Amazing.
What needs attention :
Front Windshield has a crack - It didnt bother me and i didnt want to mess with it because the windshield frame needs attention on the bottom.(Famous spots VWs have problems with).
The Body is in decent shape. i brought the paint back to life in a spectacular way compared to how it was. Only parts that really need addressingare the front and rear bumpers - It does have its share of little dings here and there though (Drivers door, tailgate, etc).
The power steering system and AC compressor should be removed. PS belt needs to be tightened and i dont want to deal with it myself.
Again, open to offers, but i know what i spent in parts so no low-ballers. I have a million photos documenting every step and part of this car. If you have ANY questions just ask. Bid with confidence. I put alot of work into this car.
