used car of the day 2003 volkswagen gti 20th anniversary

I use a corporate database that shows what's for sale on our forums to highlight each UCOTD, and the pickings were a bit slim today. So this modified 2003 Volkswagen GTI 20th Anniversary car stood out to me.

Especially since the seller wants just $9,000.

This manual-transmission GTI has 124,000 miles on the odo and is pretty heavily modified. It has an airbag suspension and a long list of performance and audio mods.

The seller claims it's in pretty good shape for its age but also notes some minor cosmetic and rust issues and says that some of the mods, including the suspension, aren't working at their best and/or are showing age.

If you can live with that -- and maybe get those mods working properly again -- this Colorado car may be for you.

Check it out here.

  • SPPPP It seems like a really nice car that's just still trying to find its customer.
  • MRF 95 T-Bird I owned an 87 Thunderbird aka the second generation aero bird. It was a fine driving comfortable and very reliable car. Quite underrated compared to the GM G-body mid sized coupes since unlike them they had rack and pinion steering and struts on all four wheels plus fuel injection which GM was a bit late to the game on their mid and full sized cars. When I sold it I considered a Mark VII LSC which like many had its trouble prone air suspension deleted and replaced with coils and struts. Instead I went for a MN-12 Thunderbird.
  • SCE to AUX Somebody got the bill of material mixed up and never caught it.Maybe the stud was for a different version (like the 4xe) which might use a different fuel tank.
  • Inside Looking Out Scandinavian design costs only $600? I mean the furniture.
  • Akear Lets be honest, Lucid will not be around in five years. It does not matter that it is probably the world's best EV sedan. Lucid's manufacturing and marketing is a complete mess. The truth is most EV companies are going under within the decade.
