***2002 Volkswagen GTI 337 Edition***

One of 1500 made!

Only 34,747 original miles!

You are looking at the holy grail of MK4 GTIs, the 2002 337 edition. There were only 1,500 of these cars made for the US market in 2002 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Golf in Europe. If you are looking at this auction, you probably know what a 337 is, but just in case here are the extras that make this car special:

  • 18x7.5" BBS RC Wheels with special ball peen finish
  • Perforated leather shift boot and handbrake
  • Red and black seat belts
  • Red and Black upholstered Recaro Le Mann seats
  • Factory body kit (front valance, sideskirts, hatch spoiler, and rear valance)
  • 02M 6-speed manual transmission 
  • Larger front brakes (312mm) with Red Calipers
  • Lowered sport tuned suspension
  • Brushed aluminum interior trim
  • Sunroof Delete

The Story:

I purchased this car from the previous owner who couldn't afford to make this car what he wanted it to be. He had started modifying it, but luckily I got a hold of it before too much irreversible damage could be done. I thought this car should be kept stock being only 1500 were made. If you want to modify a MK4, buy a regular Mk4 and have fun right? When I got it the car had Jetta struts/shocks (PO removed and kept air suspension he installed), fake fiberglass front valance, aftermarket grill, wrong rear valance, DVD head unit, some poor bodywork, a new K04-001 turbo/manifold, and a 3" catless downpipe. I spent the next six months sourcing the missing OEM parts and carefully bringing this beauty back to its former glory. Here are some of the parts I replaced:

  • New correct OEM VW Sports shocks/struts all around
  • H&R Cup Kit springs (springs that came on the car when I got it were Jetta springs)
  • One new BBS RC ball peened wheel (One that came on the car was off a GLI)
  • New Continental DWS Extreme tires all around (now have only around 2000 miles on them)
  • Neuspeed 25mm front sway bar to match the 28mm rear sway bar installed by PO
  • Original Monsoon Radio
  • Original 337 aluminum pedal covers
  • OEM 337 front and rear valances
  • OEM grill
  • OEM correct side turn signals and markers
  • Lots more little pieces here and there but you get the idea

I did not have the original turbo, so the K04 is still installed. It probably has about 4-5k miles on it. It runs great and functions basically as the stock one would since it is running on the stock ECM. Leave it as it is or get the APR tune and make some big power!

The 3" stainless cat delete downpipe is still on the car, and runs perfect without throwing a CEL code! I also  have the stock downpipe with cat that will come with the car if you want to change it back.

OEM GTI monster floor mats are installed front and back and look great.

Paint is very good. Pretty much the whole car has been repainted but color matches very well.

Interior is very clean, no rips or tears in the seats, looks almost new!

Title History:

I have a clean and clear Oregon title in hand. The title I received from the previous owner was also a clean Oregon title. When you run a Carfax or Autocheck report it shows that the car was owned by an insurance company in California at one point, which flags it as possibly totalled/salvage. I have spoken with numerous people about this and can't get a clear answer as to what this means. Some say different title brands don't carry over state-to-state, some people say it could have been a clerical error when the car came to Oregon, I don't know. I bought the car knowing it had a questionable title history and am selling it the same way. You will get a clean Oregon title with the car, but I have no idea if it will come back clean when you retitle the car in a different state. Because of this eBay is making me list the title as salvage on the auction. Please bid accordingly.  

I am sure there is a lot I missed, but hopefully the pictures will speak for themselves! Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks for looking.

VW redoes A-ha's 'Take On Me' music video

Wed, 18 Sep 2013

Volkswagen has been responsible for its fair share of witty, clever commercials. "Tiny Vader" might be the most popular, but somehow, we think this newest spot will find a big audience. VW delivers not so much a cover, but a reimagining, of 1980s Norwegian pop band A-ha's famous music video for "Take On Me."
The original opens with an animated motorcycle race, which is revealed to be part of a comic book. VW's version replaces the motorcycle with a Passat, which strikes us as an oddly sober choice when there are cars like the GTI and Beetle in VW's portfolio. But never mind that - take a look down below for the entire 46-second spot. For reference, we've also included the original music video. And if you aren't a fan of the musical stylings of A-ha, just think, VW's choice of 1980s music could have been much worse.

Volkswagen to add 50k jobs by 2018

Thu, 04 Apr 2013

Volkswagen still has its eyes set on becoming the top global automaker by 2018, and to get there, it's apparently going to need more boots on the ground. Automotive News Europe is reporting that VW is looking to increase its staff by 50,000 over the next five years - an increase of nine percent - which does not include an increase in its US dealer network.
According to the report, a majority of the growth will come from China where the automaker is also looking to double its production capacity in the same time frame. The Volkswagen Group is already expected to rival General Motors for the top sales spot in China this year, and such a rapid expansion in the region could make a good springboard for sales increases in other countries.

Editors' Choice: Top Five 2013 Geneva Motor Show Debuts

Fri, 08 Mar 2013

We've returned from a very busy week in Switzerland, and in going back over all of our 75 stories from the Geneva Motor Show, our editors have gathered up their personal favorite debuts from the European expo.
The wonderful thing about the Geneva show is just how wide of an array of vehicles are on display - everything from funny little one-off EVs to the most exotic of supercars to, well, truly ridiculous displays of coachbuilding. And because of that, this list of our editors' favorites might not be as predictable as you think.
But we don't want to give anything away just yet. Scroll down to have a look at our team's favorites from Geneva.
