Tippy MK4 GTI

Post by MT-Getto » Mar Fri 01, 2013 9:57 pm

I really have a sickness...... :beer: :beer: I've been driving past this a few times a day for the past week at the dealer by my work. Its been sitting out back in the mud with a little tear in its eye. Like a sucka, I stop to find out it's the mechanics special. Crap ton of miles and a Tiptronic with no reverse. Seems solid other than that and a nasty grumble/shake on acceleration. Feels like an axle. I'm hoping maybe it just needs a solenoid kit for the reverse.

More to come......

I too suffer from the same illness. That GTI looks real nice and is probably a total score! I think Dietz in Billings has a 125k trans for $600 if it's not a solenoid problem.

I think the later GTI's came with a 17" version similar to the 20th wheels. I think that is what those are.
