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.

VW makes $23K on every Porsche sold, more than Bentley or Lamborghini

Fri, 14 Mar 2014

It's a good time to be in the luxury car business. In Volkswagen Group's financial report for the 2013 fiscal year, it is revealed that that Porsche enjoyed an operating margin of 18 percent. That means the Stuttgart brand made on average about $23,200 per car sold, according to BusinessWeek. Bentley wasn't far behind, and Audi (which was combined with Lamborghini) posted a 10.1 percent margin. This compares to only around 2.9 percent for the Volkswagen brand.
"Luxury brands are on fire," said Dave Sullivan, an industry analyst at AutoPacific. He said that the average profit margin is between six and eight percent. Brands like Porsche and Bentley have the benefit of competing in rarefied markets. Buyers looking at one their vehicles have fewer models to shop against and don't care as much about price. They can also charge more for options, which further boosts income, according to BusinessWeek.
In a way, we should be more impressed by the continued success from Audi. Its models generally have direct competitors in every segment from the other premium automakers. Plus, their buyers aren't the captains of industry who are shopping for a Bentley. Still, the Four Rings is leading rivals in sales so far this year.

Next-gen Volkswagen Golf R spied while running the 'Ring

Tue, 16 Apr 2013

The launch of a new Volkswagen Golf is never a small thing, and things are already looking up for the subcompact hatchback after it was named 2013 World Car of the Year. While we've already seen the base and GTI versions of the next-generation Golf, now we're getting our first look at the sportier Golf R.
Although this prototype wears GTI lettering on the front fenders, it's more than just the roll cage and Sparco racing seat hinting that this is something a little more serious. Unlike the Golf and GTI, this car shows that the Golf R will continue to flaunt massive air intakes on each side of the fascia, and the rear of the car (though it's hard to see) has quadruple exhaust outlets. We still don't have an official word on power, but rumors indicate that the next Golf R could be pushing close to 300 horsepower, making it the most powerful production Golf ever. As much fun as we had during our first drive of the Golf R Cabriolet in the cold, snowy French Riviera last month, more power is a warming idea.

VW readying new VR6 with forced induction

Fri, 27 Sep 2013

Volkswagen built a stonking, narrow-angle V6 in the 1980s and 1990s that was found in three different generations of the Golf (their performance iterations, obviously), three generations of the Passat, the New Beetle, the Corrado and the Touareg, among other VWs, a spate of Audis, Seats, a Skoda, and even the Porsche Cayenne. It was a sad day when it was announced that it'd be put out to pasture.
Rejoice, though, fans of the venerable VR6, because Volkswagen has a new, modern variant in the works that, according to AutoWeek, features direct injection and can easily be fitted with forced induction. In fact, AW mentions Volkswagen insiders that claim this unit will spawn a production version of the twin-turbo V6 shown on the Design Vision GTI from this year's Wörthersee festival. That unit produced an epic 503 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque.
Don't expect a production unit with that level of power (although it would make a hardy RS4 powerplant), though. In reality, AutoWeek is suspecting anywhere from 340 to 450 horsepower from the new mill. When it arrives at an undisclosed date in the future, it'll likely be found in the Passat and Passat CC as well as the production version of the CrossBlue.
