A week ago I put my GTI up for sale. I’ve had a lot of people get in touch regarding parts, but as usual (like with all my cars) I like to sell them as they are, with all modifications in tact.
I had a solid offer on a straight swap with a Mitsubishi EVO 8 MR, the guy even suggested I keep a few modifications (seats and suspension). This offer tempted me for a good few days. I did hours of research on the MR, amazing car, amazing technology but ultimately I could get over the way it looks. I just think the newer EVO’s are so damn ugly. Long, narrow 4 door lancers with a huge wing, they really don’t do it for me at all.
Yesterday I had a guy inspect the car. I even let him test drive it. He loved it (as cheesey as “first to see will buy” sounds, it’s usually the case when I sell my cars) and wanted to put a deposit down, but I refused it.
I’m awesome at creating my own problems (!). After the track day earlier this week I’m 50/50 on selling it or keeping it.
Pretty frustrating as I want to move on and start a new project, but my GTI is so good. Perfect power, perfect response (no lag!), amazing on fuel, cheap to insure, not a cop magnet (just another Golf!), amazing on the street, amazing on the track, racey but luxurious at the same time (auto HID’s, wipers, icy cold A/C, lovely dash design, solid euro build). It’s such a trap and I’m so stuck on it. I said I’d sleep on it, maybe I need another night’s sleep.
