 FS:

Very rare 1990 factory Turbo Diesel Syncro Single Cab Transporter.  207000 kms/129K.  1.6L (JX code) Turbo Diesel, 4WD Syncro.  Sold new in Germany as a workman's truck.  It was maintained through it's life and drives very nicely it does however show regular "patina" as expected with a workhorses lifestyle.  As the pictures show it still has plenty of curb appeal and generates compliments every time I drive it.

Mechanically, it starts excellent even in very cold weather.  It has good power (similar or slightly better than a waterboxer) and yet turns excellent fuel economy.  Some might claim to break the 30mpg mark but I've not quite been able to achieve this.  The brakes have been inspected and renewed as necessary.  They stop straight, firm and without shimmy/wobble.  The steering feels tight and positive on the road.  The trans shifts very smoothly between all gears, warm or cold.  This is a non-locker unit. Oils and filters are fresh.  Tires are brand new BF Goodrich All Terrains in 215/75 R15s.  They're mounted on super rare Australian 5 spoke 5x112 T3 Alloys.  Been saving these rims for years for the right rig.  Personally I think they suit the truck perfectly.

Exterior, it's largely original paint with some touch ups over the years.  It shows well.   Windows have been tinted with quality Llumar tint.  All lights, wipers and other safety gear works as it should.  The undercarriage on this truck is very clean for its age.  To me, it is the selling point of the truck.  It must have never seen snow and seen only inside storage during it's life in Germany.  Only the lightest surface rust on certain components, the rest are original paint.  I have detailed undercarriage pictures I can send to interested parties. Working underneath is a real treat, as components come apart like they're supposed to!  If you've ever worked on a salt encrusted vehicle you'll know preciously what I mean.  Please review the pictures closely, I've tried to take very detailed and honest pictures of the truck.  It shows well- the pictures clearly show that but it is 23 years old and was used as it was intended and as such it's not perfect nor is being advertised as such.  For someone who want's a clean solid Turbo Diesel 4wd truck they can actually use- this is perfect. 

Interior.  Three person set up.  I added an upgraded T3 seat with armrests.  I tried to get a set that closely matched the 2 person bench and think I achieved that goal as well as possible with factory North American VW offerings.  All the glass is in good condition.  Gauges all work as they should.  Both windows rise/lower properly and both vent wings open/secure as they should.  Door handles inner and outer work as they should.  The factory rubber flooring shows pretty good considering it's job and it's age.  It has a bit of green paint that never bothered me enough to scrape or paint black- I'll leave that to the new owners discretion. 


VIN: WV2ZZZ24ZLG094564  A 1990 model, not 1980 but eBay's system doesn't recognize imported VINs.

I have in my possession a clear Ontario registration/title.  If the seller requires assistance with importing or shipping, I'll gladly assist but the costs are the buyers exclusively.

I have plenty of other pictures.  I can send them to interested parties.

Thank you for taking the time read my ad.

VW previews retouched 2014 Touareg for Beijing

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 18:00:00 EST

Volkswagen is in New York this week showing off its new Jetta and Golf TDI SportWagen concept. But in less than a week, the German automaker will be off to China for the Beijing Motor Show, where it will showcase the revised Touareg you see here.
A subtle update on the Touareg that's been on the market in its current form for four years now, the facelifted model features reworked styling front and rear, an updated interior and a host of new technologies to keep it current in the highly competitive SUV market. Among those new features are larger bi-xenon headlights, coasting function, Google Maps integration and a post-collision braking system designed to prevent a second crash.
VW will offer the new Touareg with a variety of engines around the world, but in North America it'll carry over the same six-cylinder powertrain options as the outgoing model: a 3.6-liter V6 with 280 horsepower, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 with 240 hp (though torque isn't listed, we'd expect around 406 pound-feet, same as last year) and a hybrid that marries a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 to an electric motor that combine to deliver 380 hp.

Volkswagen NMC production guise caught in China

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 11:29:00 EST

Chinese car site Autohome has what are said to be the first pictures of the Volkswagen New Midsize Coupe concept in production form. VW's NMC was just introduced at the Beijing Motor Show, while background chatter indicated it would go on sale in China, Autohome says that production version will be built at the Shanghai-Volkswagen plant in Ningbo, and the retail guise could be introduced at the Guangzhou Motor Show in November and go on sale that same month.
Assuming this is the production car, its main lines have made the jump from the concept but with less fine detailing, a silver hue and with conventional VW wheels it's lost a little bit of oomph. Still, a few checkmarks on the option sheet can fix most of that, the shape remains handsome and the 2.0-liter turbo underhood keeps performance peppy and mileage frugal enough. You can head to Autohome for a couple more photos of a sedan we'd be happy to make room for over here.

Volkswagen Golf Wagon leaked ahead of official unveiling

Sat, 02 Mar 2013 20:10:00 EST

Wagons ho! These three images of the upcoming Volkswagen Golf Wagon have leaked online ahead of the car's official debut, which may very well be at the Geneva Motor Show. Looking over the photos doesn't really bring any surprises - after all, this is a VW Golf with a wagon rear end grafted on, or basically what we expect next Jetta SportWagen will be.
We can only share these three images at this time, but fret not, folks. There's little doubt that all the details and images will be flowing from Volkswagen in short order. In the meantime, click on the images above to view them in high resolution.
