Well, this post is going to cover a few weeks of events but all along the same topic. After purchasing the Green ’00 TDI, I started my hunt for parts and/or doaner cars. I prefer buying doaner cars because you not only get EVERY little nut and bolt you need, you also see how things were assembled and you have the opportunity to make some, or in my case, all of your money back off of the parts you don’t need.
Approximately two weeks into my hunt, after pricing out the parts individually, I found yet another Jetta on Craigslist. This one was a ‘99.5 Jetta GLS VR6, 5-Speed car with a bad engine about 40 mins from my house. I made arrangements go check it out and before ya know it I was trailering home another Jetta.
