1995 Vw Cabrio Tdi Mk3.5 Interior Mk4 Seats Tuned Dropped New Engine And Top Ahu on 2040-cars
Estacada, Oregon, United States
Selling my Cab after much thought. I built this car for me to drive to the Carolina's where I work and it's been there 3 times since I built it. Engine was built Jan. 2012 with new 0.5mm oversize pistons, block decked for ALH pistons, torque-plate honed, new everything. 25k miles since build. Malone stage 3 EGR delete tune with Bosio Sprint nozzles. Boost is 15psi and can definitely handle more. Runs very strong. CTN transmission out of 1998? TDI. Clutch, mounts, seals, everything was new at engine build. I even installed new alternator brushes. Drive anywhere right now. While the engine was at the shop I installed the new vinyl top. No leaks. False floor in trunk for subs and a nice molded 12" sub box in the corner of the trunk. Paint is Plastidip orange koi and is easily removed. MK3.5 dash/panels. MK4 Beetle seats. Autometer EGT and Boost. Newish 195/50/15 tires. Disc MK3.5 rear axle. New CV axles and bearings all around. New lower control arms. Sway bar cut off because this car was on airbags once. Sitting on rough-riding Raceland coilovers and if that bothers you I can put on stock struts. Paint is rough underneath plastidip and is a green color. Floor pans have some soft spots from previous owner leaving the top down in the rain. I pulled padding out and just left it alone because it isn't that bad and didn't bother me. Carpet is newer Jetta carpet. AC works WAY good. 2" stainless straight exhaust with one muffler in the back. Hitch for pulling tractors. Dual chamber Hella headlights super bright. OBDII works great. All window and top seals were replaced in the past 2 years from cars I found in junkyards across the country. True 50mpg car here, no joking around with that. I recently built the 1Z pump that's on it. No leaks anywhere. Battery is a large AGM and I installed all + connections on a Glastic standoff located behind the battery. Has a CD player with bluetooth and decent door speakers. I believe I left a #4 welding cable installed so you can install a large amp in the trunk. This is the glass rear window German built Cabrio. I build and love TDI's and this car was no exception. I am willing to deliver anywhere in the country if you pay fuel and a plane ride home. This car has been everywhere and can go many many more miles. No airbag in passenger dash due to an amp being installed there once. See pics below.

Reports in October 2012 claimed Volkswagen had begun investigating the creation of its own budget brand. This came after having failed to purchase Malaysian car company Proton or produce a meaningful partnership with Suzuki, and after watching Renault-Nissan make piles of euro on Dacia and plot the return of Datsun.

For VW, more important than the question of what to call it was how to build it profitably and in a way that didn't damage the VW brand. According to a report in Autocar, a satisfactory answer still hasn't been found. The hurdle is how to hit "'necessary' quality and safety levels" at the price points needed to make the venture worthwhile. At the time of the 2012 report, German outlet Der Spiegel said VW was trying to get prices down to 6,000 to 8,000 euro ($7,784 to $10,379 US), about two thousand to four thousand euro under the price of the VW Up and in line with the cost of a 6,790-euro Dacia Sandero in Germany.
In March 2013, VW announced, "We want to bring a true budget car to the market in China in the foreseeable future," the most concrete move in that direction after years of planning to make a decision. Working with local Chinese maker FAW, it was predicted that the vehicle in question would appear around 2016, but as of November last year a final vote on it needed to wait until this year because "We are still working on the cost side" and profit possibilities for a car that "has to be durable, it has to be precise, it has to be safe."
There are plenty of things to love about the Mk1 Volkswgen Golf. The machine's horsepower isn't one of them. From the factory, the little hatch cranked a breathy 112 horsepower from the most robust form of its 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. Boba motoring, however, has taken that figure and multiplied it by a factor of nearly 10. If 1,000 horsepower sounds terrifying in a machine with a wheelbase of just 94.5 inches, it should. A massive Garrett GTX4202R turbo force-feeds the little mill through a tweaked 16-valve KR head. The crew calls the beast the 16Vampir, and we think that's fitting.

Of course, we'd wager you quit reading right about the time you set your eyes on that headline. Those of you who've stuck around this long can point yourselves below to see the maniacal creation in action. You won't be disappointed.
The redesigned Volkswagen Passat has been a decent seller since its debut in 2011, but sales have apparently dropped off enough that the automaker is trimming some of the employees from its Chattanooga, TN assembly plant. According to Automotive News, Volkswagen will be cutting shifts and laying off 500 contracted workers in response to slowing sales.
Currently, the plant has three teams running 10-hour shifts Monday through Saturday, but starting May 13, this will be reduced down to two teams running 10-hour shifts Monday through Thursday. This will be done to reduce dealer inventory (the article says that VW dealers, on average, have a 97-day supply of Passats) and production capacity (currently running at an annual pace of 170,000 units, which is more than the 150,000 annual units the plant was planned to produce).
This, of course, isn't saying that the Passat has been a failure since VW added 200 full-time employees to the plant in February 2012 to keep up with increased demand. The AN article says that automakers frequently overstaff plants during the launch of a new product - or in this case, a new product and a new plant - but eventually reduce the workers as things run smoother and more efficiently.
