    I am thoroughly bummed out...
    Last night my 04 Passat that has been converted to a 5 speed manual gave out. It just came home on the wrecker. It is still a very nice car with 276,000 on the chassis. Any ideas about value? I need to sell the car whole.

    So sorry to hear that. Any chance of rebuilding or replacing the engine. It would be a shame to send it down the road for all you have into it. Think about how much you paid for the tranny swap parts plus tune. I'm guessing that's going to be 2k or so. I wouldn't take anything less than that.

    Maybe it's time to put it up on ebay and see what happens. Whatever does you already know you're taking a bath. I don't think you'd get a big enough audience on CL.
