For sale my 2010 Volkswagen GTI 6 speed manual.

125,274 miles as of today, 12/19/2020 (I work from home so miles will go up very slowly)


It is time for me to move on from my GTI, I purchased the car in September of 2013 and have used it as my daily driver ever since. Oil was always changed with factory recommended Castrol 5W-40 every 10K miles.


The good:

New plugs and coils in October of 2020.

New water pump installed November 2020 with new Peak European blend coolant.

Intake valves cleaned in October of 2020.

ABS pump fixed in 2019.

Last oil change was in December of 2020.

Upgraded stock look Apple CarPlay / Android Auto Radio.

H&R Cup kit springs and shocks.

APR Carbonio intake.

Forge short shifter.

ECS Tuning resonator delete.

Hawk Street 5.0 Brake Pads in 2019.

Stock wheels with BF Goodrich Sport Comp2 Tires, Installed in 2017.


The bad:

Paint is not perfect as you can see in the photos.

Some of the interior is starting to show its age.

TPMS sensors were not installed in the last set of tires so there is a light on the dash.

LED bulbs in some lights have triggered the dash light to think there is a bad bulb because of low voltage draw.

It’s a 10-year-old Volkswagen


Overall this has been a good car for me and still love driving it. It has only seen a few autocrosses and has never been to an open track day/drag strip or any other competitive driving. It also has always been on the stock tune. I will miss it but it’s time to move on to something slightly bigger to carry more camera gear and people. Take a look at the photos and let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. The car is located in the Daytona Beach Florida area.

This is a good deal on a car with a lot of potential. Good luck with the sale.

Unfortunately no, I tried to be nice to this car, but the spot was too cool not to shoot the photos at.
