Hi, from Spanaway, WA. I,ve had many VW's over the years, about 2 months ago I came across a '97-7 Jetta TDI. I bought it from the original owner,w/107000 miles on her.She's got 5sp, sunroof,manual windows,super cd player W/bose speakers. I bought her for my wife,she says it smells&doesn't have pwr options or auto trans,her loss,my gain.Paid $375 for it with a broken valve,bought a used head in Seattle for $150,got real lucky,no piston damage,valve stuck in seat. Put head on ,took a piece of seat out of exhaust wheel& she runs great.Set timing w/Ross-Tech,no smoke good power&good boost.Think I'll keep driving her & my caddy,atleast till I get my Austin Healeys back on the road or my 14 year old starts driving. I think it would be a super first car for him. cheers Genos:D
